Check to see that the trunk light and glove compartment light actually turn OFF when the trunk and glove box doors are closed. Also, if one of the diodes on the alternator has failed, it may still test "good." With the car sitting, ignition off, fully-charged battery, check to see if the back of the alternator is HOT. If it is HOT, replace the alternator.
This is definitely the Blower (Fan) Motor Resistor located behind the dash Glove Box.
Remove the Glove Box completely to access.
It is mounted onto/slightly into the fire wall and has 3 to 4-wires going into it. I believe there are two (2) 8-mm bolts holding it on. It is shape like a 3 1/2 inches wide by 1 1/2 inches high.
Disconnected the negative side of the battery first
Unplug the resistor.
Remove and replace with new resistor.
Re-plug back in.
Reconnect the negative side of the battery.
Check operation before re-onstalling the glove box!
i had the same problem,to me it was the ac/heat door actuator,this turns a motor for the temperature contol, when its broken it ither stays at just one temperature or flips from hot to cold constantly , if it is this is its not a cheap fix. if you go to the dealer just the actuator costs you about $200 and labor is $800 they will tell you that they need to take the whole dashboard out and thats why it will take 8 hours. what i did was get one from the junkyard for $50 and install it myself,all you have to do is open the glove box and take out a 3-4 screwd weird shaped box (actuator) its a tight space but it posible to take out with out pulling the dash,it saves you $800. it took me about half an hour to change it.
1st thing to check would be the alternator, to make sure it's charging the battery. If it's not, the red battery light would come on. Most major parts stores offer free battery and charging system checks, they can tell you if the alternator is not charging. Have it checked asap, as the new battery will be dead soon if it's not being charged. countrycurt0
