How do I replace a blower resistor on a 2001 Mazda B3000?

My heater/defroster fan works on only one speed. Someone told me it was probably the blower resistor. I was wondering if that is hard to replace if I got the correct part. Where is it located and how can I replace it. Any information would be appreciated. If it is something that has to go to a shop, what would a reasonable price be to change it?

SOURCE: Blower motor or resistor?

If it was the motor that went out then it would not blow at all. The resistor is the culprit that starts killing off speeds. It should be about $25 to $30 at an aftermarket store like autozone or advanced auto parts.

SOURCE: A/C Heater blower fan does not cycle through all speeds

Yes it is the blower Motors Resistor board. It is up behind the blower motor, just under the glove box. You have to remove the black KICK panel with its two "Push Pins" that will break too. There are 3 screws holding that resistor board in, the back two are a bear to get to. Good luck.

Heater Fan Only has 1 Speed


I agree with the other comments.It's really not to bad to get at and I believe it's held in with a small screw.Once you have the part you'll find it easy to locate the one that has gone bad.Simply unplug the wires to the heater resister and remove the old part.There's a good feeling that goes with making your own repairs.

The fan in my 2001 chevy tahoe doesnt work on 1 or 2 but 3 through 5 are fine


Usually a sign of a faulty blower resistor. The resistor changes the amperage of the circuit to change the blower speed.
You can look the part up online to get a visual.

My 2000 Mazda MPV heater fan works for 4 not for 1


You need to replace the blower motor resistor,it's in the heater box.Number 4 bypasses the resistor and all the other speeds go through it so it's the most likely problem.

The fan/blower only works on the high setting.


It probably is the fan switch itself. They are around $30. for a new one. You can take it out and check to see if you have power to all the settings with a ohm meter or test light. They are not real hard to take out.

Heater Control Switch Only Works on High


Your problem is probably a part called the heater resistor block or board. When this part burns out you will only have high speed on the fan. On my 1999 voyager it is located on the firewall and it snaps in a hole in the firewall. This is under the hood behind the alternator.
Mine had a multi pin black plug plugged into it. Unplug the plug and
you should be able to pull the block out insert new block and plug plug back in and it should come to life.
