Blower problem


The blower motor resistor:
  • is located on the heater core and evaporator core housing near the blower motor.
  • has three resistor elements mounted on the resistor board to provide four blower motor speeds.
  • depending on the blower motor switch position, series resistance is added or bypassed in the blower motor circuit to decrease or increase blower motor speed.
  • has an overheating device (thermal limiter) that will open the resistor coil when the temperature reaches approximately 184°C (363°F) , interrupting the blower motor operation in all speeds except high.
  • is serviced as an assembly. The thermal limiter cannot be reset and is not serviceable.
REMOVAL
  1. Lower the glove compartment.
  2. Remove the screws and position aside the 4x4 control module.
  3. Remove the blower motor resistor.
4 Disconnect the electrical connector. 5 Remove the screws and the blower motor resistor. INSTALLATION
  1. To install, reverse the removal procedure.
