That is the blower resistor for the motor. it is mounted right near the blower motor. two small screws holding it in. real simple fix. if you have any more question please ask.

good luck

Fan does not work on stage 1 to 3

The fan speed is reduced to less than full by a coil of resistor wire usually stuck in the air housing under the hood near the fan. Look for a section with three or four wires and some screws to remove a section. This needs to be replaced

The fan will only work on the highest setting after smoke was emmitted from the heating ports inside the car, could you inform us on possible problem and location of replacement part. My car is a 1994...

The fan speed resistor pack has burnt out, a very common fault on a huge number of makes and models. Top fan speed works as that's the only switch setting where the resistors aren't used.

I'm on the wrong side of the Atlantic to be familiar with your model, but on most cars the resistor pack is on top of the fan motor intake box behind the glove-box (which may need to be removed for access). Usually it's in a similar area to the cabin air filter, and looks like a small plate with a four wire (for a four speed fan), single electrical multi-plug going to it and typically held in place with a couple of screws.

The resistors are usually just very primitive coils of resistive wire, and if there's not enough airflow over them then they overheat and burn out. There's always one less resistor than the number of fan speeds, so for a typical four speed fan there are usually three resistors. The resistors work in series, so on a four speed fan, the slowest speed passes the fan motor voltage through all three resistors, the second slowest uses just two resistors, third uses one and top speed (for a four speed) bypasses them all. Each resistor causes an approximate drop of 3 volts and dissipates around 4.5 Watts.

The fix is to replace the resistor pack, but if you have soldering skills then you can replace the resistors with something better for less money. I typically use wirewound resistors with a minimum rating of 10W, and ideally rated at 1.5 Ohms but for the last few repairs have used 1 Ohm examples instead as they're all I could easily get. the end result may have slightly different fan speeds to before but will work.

When you fix the fault, make sure that the airflow is unimpeded. Clean out as much debris as you can and replace the cabin filter. It's usually a choked cabin filter which causes the fault to start with.

If you have to get the job done professionally then it's normally a quick repair (under half an hour) on most models, but if there's more dismantling needed to get at the work-site then it will cost more. In the UK a resistor pack typically costs up to around £30, so total repair costs will be about £70. When I fix this myself with my soldering iron the repair takes around 45 minutes and costs me about £10. A replacement resistor pack from a wrecking yard typically costs £10-£15 if you don't like soldering.

Heater fan switch is stuck on 3 and four

When you say stuck, do you mean that 1 and 2 have no function? If so replace the fan speed ballast the is located either in the fan housing or in the duct work right close to the fan so it can be cooled. This component is responsible for dictating voltage/speed of the fan. 2 screws. Very easy.

Fan not working for heat and ac?i checked the bar of four relays on the passenger side would it be something else? also checked fuses in car

can be couple of things, 1. motor burnt out 2. fan switch is faulty 3. fuse 4. relay. if you have a volt meter tester than you test them all and see if they all are working. if you think relay and fuse are good, more likely it will be the switch or the motor. they all are easy to fix and replace. if you have to replace the parts and want to save money, get it from the junk yard or ebay; dealer has 100% mark up.

1992 Jeep Grand Cherokee needs water pump replaced and I can't seem to get the clutch fan to come off. I am use to working on chevys and have never had this problem. what am I doing wrong. I have removed...

If you have the four flange bolts out, you may need to use a thin bladed screwdriver to separate the fan flange from the pump flange (a little wd 40 helps) There is no inch and a half bolt anywhere on the pump or fan so I have no clue what other bolt you are talking about. However, you likely are not removing the fan from the pump if you are working on an L6 engine. The pump does not have the fan mounted to it. Pump is bolted on the front of the block...lower hose goes to it.

How do you get the water pump and fan disconnected from each other on a 1997 Dodge Pickup truck 318 motor?

you need a special tool , a fan nut tool , it's like a 1-1/2 " ,actualy a little smaller , i use a 1-1/2" wrench and smack it with a rubber mallet , but there is a tool for it , i think checkers auto has a loan -a-tool program , but to buy it is expensive , it is normal threaded - counter clockwise is off . a special tool holds the 4 bolts on the pulley and the other part of the tool fits on the big nut . sorry i can't fix ya , cuz who has a 1-1/2" wrench or the special wrench in there home arsinal .
