I have a 2006 Chrysler Sebring and I was curious if I had to pull out the plenum to replace the blower motor resistor. I rather not tear apart the entire dash to do this but if it has to be done then it has to be done. The car has manual temperature controls so it has a sensor not a module. Not sure if that makes a difference. Thank you.

Recently the fan only works on '4'. It does not work on '1', '2', or '3'. I read a similar question that recommending checking the blower motor resistor.

Where is the blower motor resistor located, and how accessible is it for someone who hasn't worked on a car since I had a 1973 Dodge Coronet?

I took my car to a mechanic because my car was blowing hot air, even when the fan was turned "off". He told me that the "switch that switched from hot to cold was stuck on hot". I assumed he was referring to the blower motor resistor switch. I'm wondering if I replace the blower motor resistor if it'll fix the problem, or if there is another part that I should replace instead. I'm not having trouble with the fan speeds, just the hot and cold. The AC compressor is fully charged.

The blower motor resister is only responsible for fan speed. It wouldn't cause this type of a problem. Since you are always getting heat, it sounds like the blend air door may be stuck. It opens and closes based on if you want heat or AC. If stuck in the wrong position, you will always get heat.

It is simple there are 2 bolts holding it in just remove them and carefully pull it out.

It is located under passenger dash near blower motor. Connection looks like this.....
