Did you also change the connector at the same time?

Here is a step-by-step check you can do to fix it. If you are only getting high speed (setting 5), then most likely you have a resistor problem, or the wiring connector to the resistor is bad. The ground wire prong being bad is a possible cause.

Check this for step-by-step checks:

Heater of car smells


A mouse or leaves from a nearby tree have gotten into the AC/Heater blower motor and they are touching the blower motor speed control resistor, this is very hot and makes them smolder and smoke and smell. You will need to remove the blower motor from the housing that it is in and clean out what ever is in there.

The heater squeels when on the high setting and does not work on any other setting I am trying to find an online guide on how to change the blower motor or is it the blower motor resistor? its for a 2002...


Blower motor is bad. Resistor controls speed. Motor is so worn out that it will only turn when set on high. Best to replace it before it burns out something else due to the high current draw.

When I turn the heater on burnt plastic smell from vents


It could be your heater blower motor or the blower speed regulating reisitor.
Try different blower speeds, see if the smell goes away. Also if one or more speed setting don't work, it is more than likely it is the resistor, if no to the tests, it is more likely to be the blower motor.
Also check to see if the blower intake is blocked.

Heater in 2001 kia spectra stoped working


The burning smell is most likely an issue with the blower motor. These small motors have a hard life and the windings can lose the insulation and short out, hence the burning smell. Another problem can arise if the air intake has filled with leaves and other matter which can be ignited by the fan speed resistor creating the smoke. As this matter rots down, it creates chemicals which can erode the insulation on the motor and cause burning and the eventual failure of the motor. The fan speed resistor is a bank of wirewound or solid state resistors wired across the fan motor which give the individual fan speeds. If these fail then you would lose the fan as well. Search out the fan housing as the resistor is usually fitted into this housing to keep it cool. NEVER turn the fan on if this resistor is out of the housing as it WILL get hot and It can cause a nasty burn..the resistor can have upto 7 wires plugged into it but as to it's exact location, that you will have to find on your own..

This vehicle does not use a Front Blower Motor Resistor. The Front Blower Motor speed is regulated by the Front Blower Motor Speed Control which is incorporated into the Front Blower Motor and is not serviced separately.

Heater not working


The problem is probably the blower motor resistor. I'm not sure where yours is located exactly. They can be on the firewall under the hood or some are near the blower motor under the dash.
