It's about a $20ish part and yes it's a resistor for the blower motor.

Pick op the Ford focus Hayns manual.

I hope this helps you.

Why does my blower only work on number 4

this sounds like a bad blower motor resistor that is bad and only working when the switch is put in the 4th position. the resistor has resistors wires in it that respond to the path of power through fan switch on the dash, depending on which fan speed you need.

Not uncommon for Ford focus coil packs to play up I've replaced a few I would recommend, replace coil pack and have leads. If you have car serviced at the regular service interval the plugs should be ok.

Heater would only work on high for last two years. One day it quit working, but we found that a fuse had blown. Now, a few weeks later, it quit again. This time it is not a fuse. The car is a 2000 Ford...

sounds like a bad swich. but since it all of a sudden quit on you the blower motor could be bad as well. you can connect power and ground to blower to see if it works. if it turns then the swich is bad.

1999 mercury cougar. 3 of my 4 blower settings for a/c stopped working 6 weeks ago and today the 4th went out. i had the blower test and is fine. I replaced the blower resistor and blower switch and still...

Make sure you contact a Mercury Dealer or Ford Dealer and run your vehicle ID number to see if it has a recall on the blower switch. I worked for Ford for years and I think I remember that vehicle having a blower switch and or relay recall. Some of these recalls did not expire and if that is the case it would not cost you anything to have this done. Good luck, hope this helped

Blower works only on number 4. NOT 1, 2 or 3.

The is almost always caused by a defective Blower Motor Resistor Pack. The only fix is to replace it.

Are you talking about the blower speeds? If it only works on high then the blower resistor has failed and needs to be replaced.
