the resistor is behind your glove box. open the box and push in the sides to release it and let it hang down...the resistor is right there. I didn't try to replace it, a friend did it, but the part was under $20.

It is on the passenger side, you have to remove the black plastic kick plate, below the glove box, to expose it (held in place with 2 latches and 1 push pin). The resistor is in front of the blower motor ( sandwiched between the motor housing and the firewall) it is tricky to get to, i think when i changed mine i didnt replace all the screws as they were difficult to remove and even harder to replace. Good Luck, Mike

no diagrams avil on fixya, sorry, the blower resistor is right next to the blower motor in the air duct that cools it.

mine did the same thing. It was the gears breaking off in the resistor. However, the wiring harness and resistor melted inside of the dashboard AND DID NOT trigger the fuse... causing a safety issue. This was this past month. I notified GM and the National Highway Traffic Saftely Administration hotline located in the owners manual. They are not tracking this problem to see about safety recall. If you have this issue, you need to ntify them as well at their toll free number
