Take the blower motor out of your way first its easier to manage. there are 9/32 bolts holding both the motor and resistor up. there are two bolts on the resistor itself. one in the front and one in the back. the one it back is tough. have to cram your socket in there against the rubber just to get at it.

Hope this fixs it. jeff

I just replaced the blower motor resistor myself this past weekend. What a pain but possible. First, you need to get the blower motor out of your way. There are three bolts holding it in. Take out the back one first! With the blower motor removed, the resistor is easy to get to. There are three screws for the resistor but you only need to remove the front one. Then the resistor should slide out. Hook the new resistor up and slide back in and put screw back. Put blower motor back and I only put back the front two screws.

Blower Motor not working - Can not get defrost/heat


Sounds like the resistor has went bad, or your blower motor is bad. First check the fuse, then does the blower only run on low or high or not at all? If it runs on low or high your resister is bad. Located under the dash on the passenger side you'll see a small rectangle piece of plastic with a plug. It takes a 5.5mm socket to remove the 2 screws. Otherwise if it does not work at all and the fuse is fine your blower motor is probably no good. I can't remember where that is located at but I think that too is under the dash on the passenger side

Seen this more then I could count!! You have a shorted blower motor resistor, it's mounted underneath the passenger side of the dash, unplug the connector and make sure it's not melted, that's also common.. If so you can get just the connector as well, with conn your probably looking at 100-125.00. At the most..

Where is blower resistor located


The blower resistor is generally located in the vicinity of the blower motor. On your vehicle access to the blower motor can be made be removing the panel under the passenger side of the dash. The blower motor resistor will be just to the drivers side of the blower motor.

If your interested I wrote up an article on blower motor diagnosis.

Need to replace blower motor resister switch. Things 2 consider 1)Im female but machanical inclined. 2) live in rural area with no access to chilton manual 3) help because its damn cold here!


You'll need some small sized metric sockets, 4mm-10mm, you'll need to remove the plastic cover under the dash, the blower motor resistor is located to the left of the blower motor, they are located in the corner of the dash, on the passenger side of the dash. Also, check the plug that plugs into the blower motor resistor, I've seen some of the plugs melt. There are 2 bolts that hold the blower motor resistor to the heater housing.

Heater/AC control switch only operates in high speed. Allother positions don't run.


Sounds like resistor gone, which is in circuit between your controls and the blower motor. Usually located under dash near ducting, or near blower motor, which I believe in your vehicle is located under hood on passenger side firewall area. I normally will follow harness (wiring) from blower and work back to switch at dash to locate resistor. When you check at autoparts store or dealer for new blower resistor, they should be able to tell you probable location if not exact, as well as whether it may be possibly built in to blower motor assembly.

My 2002 GMC Envoy xl fan switch has 5 levels but the fan only works on levels 4&5. I heard there is a switch under the dash in the duct line, but I don't know what I'm looking for.


Your looking for the blower resistor. Its on the passenger side under the dash. Two of the wires go the the blower motor. The wire connector and the resistor can burn or corrode. The replacement is easy two screws hold the resistor in and the connector can be replace with **** connectors.

Where is the hvac blower motor located? If you replace the blower motor do you need to replace the resistor too?


Dear Blower Motor Searcher,
The blower motor is located under the dash on the pass side in front.Open the pass front door , get on your knees, and look up under the dash, you will see the flying saucer looking object, that is the blower motor.Right next to it is where the resistor is located, and yes it is recomended that you replace the resistor also because that is where the main current flows thru to get to the blower motor.That actually controls the current of the motor, which controls the speed of the motor, low, med, high, recirc, etc....any other questions get back to me, TX!! HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

1999 Dodge Ram 1500 Fan Motor Resistor Location


I've never seen a vehicle w/o a blower resistor. You don't need to remove the blower. The resistor is about 2 inches x 3 inches and is installed in a hole in the plenum (duct) near the blower motor. It will have a wiring harness connected to it. It could be under the passenger dash or under the hood, depending on where the blower motor is.
