The conector has 5 wires going into it and is right behind the blower motor on the bottom of the heater box

Do you manual or automatic heating control ? manual has resistor ,automatic has blower motor speed controller ! You did not need to pull glove box. You have to pull the lower panel under glove box .
  1. Remove the RH lower instrument panel insulator.
  1. Disconnect the blower motor speed control electrical connector.
  1. Remove the 2 blower motor speed control screws.
  1. Remove the blower motor speed control.

HOW TO GET TO FUSE BOX UNDER GLOVE BOX ON 2003 BMW X5


  • You have to open the glove box and turn the two finger switches 1/4 turn.
    If the blower isn't working its probably not the fuse anyway. The part you need to replace is the fan speed resistor.

My heater blowers dnt work and i need to knw where i can locate the resister blocks for my heater blowers so i can ghange them


Its located under dash,or near glove box.

The dash panel lower side has to be out.

HEATER BLOWER MOTOR


Its faulty blower motor resistor. The low and medium speed on blower motor is controlled by resistor and its actual speed is high. So because resistor is not working, blower motors actual speed which is high is working.


It can be faulty blower motor or faulty blower motor resistor. Get the blower motor inspected. If it's faulty it has to be replaced.

My fan blower motor only works on high,They say it maybe the resistor may be bad, where is it ? Thanks, Jim


Hi, the resistor is screwed to the side of the blower housing behind the glove box. See procedure below to replace the resistor. You don't have to complete all steps in the procedure. just work your way to the point that you can unscrew the resistor. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

The fan motor switch will not work on positions 1,2,3- but do work on 4 and 5.. What needs to be replaced or repaired


replace your blower resister it location in on you blower motor box it will be behind you glove box I think ,but replace it all will be ok.I hope this These are a pain to reach. They are bolted under the dash forward of the the blower motor. If you pull the blower motor out first, you can see the bolts that hold the resistor in. They usually melt the resistors on the circuit board. Good luck. 79131833.gif ,

2002 Trailblazer blower not working


The blower motor resistor card is located under the glove box. You have to take the bottom panel from underneath the glove box out(be careful not to break the wire clip that holds the wires in place on that panel). Once you take the panel loose look in the back. You will see the blower motor. Behind the blower motor is the card. You will need a 9/32 for the panel and a 7/32 for the card. It is only 4 screws total to remove and 2 wire harness clips. It is about a 15 minute job. Good luck and hope this helps.  Auto Zone has the part for around $15.00 and will have the step by step instrutions for you also if you need it free of charge. I think the dealer charges $109.00 for this repair.

F150 2004 blower working only on high position.


this is because your blower motor resisters are burned out for speeds 1,2 & 3. High speed does not have a resister.

Replace the resister. If it goes a 2nd time, it is because your blower motor is failing & drawing too much current.

it is behind the glove box I think. It is in the plenum case where air blowing on it keeps it cool.

Easy repair. May need to access throught glove box which should open all the way down when you squeeze the sides in.

Go to tascafordparts.com for a discounted resister.
Please rate as solved problem if this is what you needed.

Blower Motor Switch Resistor
Blower Motor Resistor Coils 9ba1105.gif Blower Motor Thermal Limiter 47afe58.gif The heater blower motor switch resistor has the following features:
  • The assembly is located on the passenger side of the plenum assembly behind the glove compartment (06010).
  • Three resistance elements are mounted on the resistor board to provide four A/C blower motor speeds.
  • Depending on the heater blower motor switch position, series resistance is added or bypassed in the A/C blower motor circuit to decrease or increase A/C blower motor speed.
  • An overheating protective device (thermal limiter) will open the resistor coil circuit when the temperature reaches 121°C (250°F), interrupting the blower motor operation in all speeds except HI.
  • The thermal limiter cannot be reset and is not serviceable.

The heater / ac blower only works on high. It is not the blower or the control switch or the blower motor relay. Please help. Thank George


It is the blower resister. I purchasted one at auto zone for $18.00. It is located under the passenger side dash. You need to remove the glove box and the plastic cover under the dash to expose the blower motor. the blower motor resister is right next to the motor. Simply unplug the resister remove the two screws and replace. I did this and now my fan works on all speeds.
