Question about 1997 Lincoln Continental
The blower motor shorted and I had it rewired to a turn knob toggle. The guy who installed this bypass told us to keep it on high as the knob may over heat(the knob itself at back near connections. You ask..Why didn't you get it fixed properly? We live hand to mouth and didn't have the 300 we were told it would cost to fix properly and don't have it now. This knob performed its function until it shorted out. The air duct can be controlled on the consol but the blower doesn't engage without the knob. I know it has something to do with the onboard computer and don't need a lecture on the issue. I can replace it but is there a better idea as to a certain knob to install that can handle that power current as a SHORT term fix.
Not sure about all your info. If the motor shorted, it would not turn. So something else shorted. I presume you had a friend wire the motor to a variable knob and that is why he wants you to keep it on all the way. Good idea since turning it down will cause it to heat up and possible burn out. Just find an off on (toggle) switch and put that in place of the knob thing.

it is called blower motor resistor , should be close to blower motor , you will see a plug type connector with two screws , remove the screws and there should be a resistor inside the cover for the motor, swap with new and reassemble

Do check the refrigerant level. It can be user checked, and added. Find a refill kit at your local parts vendor which includes a meter. It may cost a few more bucks, but they are reusable. Follow the basic instructions - car on, cooler on high, etc.
If your system has been low, the compressor clutch will engage when the refrigerant level rises enough for it to engage. You may need to do this every other year or so.
If you do have a leak in the line, then the cool air will 'go missing' again real soon.

List of possibilities:
This is not the item to attempt to fix by yourself if your a senior citizen. Because of the location of these items this is a back breaking job.
Unless the shop you go to attends to its customers while wearing ski masks take the vehicle to them . This is not a fixed income reaper. Good luck.
