    That resistor should never fry unless the motor itself is overheating causing excessive resistance or the Blower motor itself is siezed or about to sieze, just like a the starter, if you are having a starting issue and overwork and overheart the starter it will eventually sieze or your vehicle will crank very slow and drain the battery, due to you overheatign the starter.

    Also if you are having the issue of having to replace your Alternator very often, replace the wire from the Fusable Link to the Alternator, and do it with a thicker one too, that thin wire gets brittle due to the heat from the engine, and causes a higher resistance causing you to fry the voltage regulator very often, I did research and came up with the wire becoming brittle due the the heat from the engine, I did this and the 5th alternator in, lol has not given me any problems so far, no pulsating lights on the dash nor on my car and I have an 02.\

The blower speed controller is located under the hood on the right or passenger side on the heater housing just to the side of the heater hoses near the very back of the right cylinder head.
Yes that would cause the concern you are having.

Replace blower motor resistor 1995 Mercury Mystique

Probably connected to the blower switch. Actually it is a group of resistors in a block. BTW, there also is a thermal fuse in the resistor group that might be the cause of failure

My a/c went out on my 99 mercury cougar but that was because my a/c compressor went out. My heat was working after that and then it went out too. I thought it was my blower motor so i bought a new one....

You have two other components that control the blower, the control switch and the blower resistor block. The switch is the knob you turn to select the speed and will cause you loose power to the next component that is the resistor block. This part is usually next to the blower motor because it needs to be cooled by the fan and it is responsible for the different fan speeds. Either component can cause a total loss of the blower fan. Go to a online parts lookup like and it will show you a picture of the parts so you can identify them.

99 cougar blower motor problems

Use the diagram at the link below. First check fuses 23 and 37. If good, pull out the blower relay and probe the relay socket with a voltmeter or test light. Turn the key on and turn the blower switch to high. There should be two hot terminals in the relay socket. If good, move your red lead to battery positive and probe the other two terminals. One should be solid ground and the other should show a few volts. If all good, push the relay back in to see if it clicks. If it clicks, move to the blower motor connector. Put your black lead to chassis lead to ground and probe the terminal with the purple wire. It should be hot. If yes, the problem is at the switch. Verify that yhe switch is getting ground on the black wire at the control head connector.
If you can run these tests, you will find the problem. Let me know if you get stuck.

Blower motor not working

If you do a voltage check right at the motor you'll know for sure. I usually use my test light or multimeter and poke into wires at motor. If no voltage, start back-tracking which usually means resistor next. If you have 12 volts going to motor & it's not spinning, then I'd be pulling motor. You can manufacture a set of jumper wires to motor connector, and use a 12 volt cordless battery to test motor if you know how.

Mercury Cougar heater blower only works on high.

remove the trim panel below the glove box and you will see the blower motor,just to the left of it you will see a 4 wire connector plugged into the case. This is the blower motor resistor,this is what you need to replace.

99 cougar heater

I had this exact problem, it is probably your Blower Motor Resistor. It is located under/behind your glovebox, one screw holds it in. Not too expensive either. If that doesn't work it may be your blower motor. Good Luck!
