If the heat resistors your talking about are located in the blower compartment, they are used to allow the blower fan motor to run different speeds. The motors were 1 winding motors, and to get the 3 or 4 speeds, they used the wire wound resisters in series.In order to keep them cooled off, GM stuck them in the blower compartment.

Is there a way to test the blower resistor on a chevy colorado pick up?

You can take a volt-ohm meter and check the resistance between the terminals after you remove it from the truck. Each resistor wire should have some resistance.

I have a 1971 Chevy stepside pick up with the drivers side tail light broken off. How do you remove the old on?

If it is bolted to a bracket, just take the nuts lose and it should come off. If the bracket is broke, see if it is bolted to the truck or welded.
