Here is the sequence I went through after reading the on-line forums.
Most folks said it was the resistor module so I bought a new one.
I measured the new resistor module with an ohmmeter before I installed it. It was identical to the original part. I then changed out the fan I also tested both the new and old fan with a current meter and both were the same.
So now I have two new parts installed and the problem persists.
I then disconnected the two prong plug at the fan.
Then I connected the ground side of the fan to the resistor module and connected the positive side of the fan directly to the +12 of the battery.
The fan now works as it should and has all four speeds. This tells me that the resistor module works correctly. The only thing bypassed at this time is the power source which is activated by turning on the ignition. When the ignition is turned on, it should activate a relay which will then power the fan.
I am looking for this relay and or fuse which operates this circuit. I cannot find any reference to where this relay or fuse is located. There is no manual available for this vehicle according to the auto parts store and I can't find an on-line schematic or pictures for this vehicle either. The owners manual is also no help
So the question is. Where is the relay and/or fuse?
have the same problem?
