Both of these guys are correct. The ground is through the switch. If there is power to the motor, it has to be a ground issue. Since the resister is new, chances are it is good. Think about it. When you check for power, you are most likely using a test light or volt meter. Where is your ground? It is one you supplied, so the power can complete the circuit and show power. Once you remove your ground, the power is still there but has no where to go.
