Anyone else had this problem?? Mine stopped working today when i turned the dial to 3 and 4. And then when i went back to zero and went back up it worked again. It cut out down the road and i had to do the same thing to get it going again. :mav2: :dawg:

philmiami's repair

My fan control quit working on setting 3. After I had a dealership replace the blower motor because of the whining noise it made when it was still under 3/36 warranty the problem began. Sometimes I would have to reach under the dash and push up the connector because the fan would quit working, most of the time while driving. It was very annoying.
I went and looked and the BLUE wire was changing to burnt looking I new it was the resistor going bad. It really melted the connector. I went to rockauto.com and their catalog is superb in looking for parts for most vehicles.

I ordered the parts, a new connector (which was 3 times the amount of the resistor) and resistor ($9) and got them shipped 2 day fedex. The connector comes with gray wires so don't mix up the colors when you cut them and it comes with 4 butt-end connectors so this was a easy fix.

heh heh... Oh yeah, I forgot... :mc:

Hey, anyways, this is real easy to check bro. All the equipment is in the open.. Down under the glove box where a passengers feet would be. Take the connector off the resistor and inspect the terminals for any burn marks or melting.

I think one of the most important pictures did not come through on the copy and paste: (1) is the resistor and connector
