The heater fan on this vehicle only works on full speed. I believe there is a resistor in the circuit that controls the fan speed, but I have no idea where it is or what it looks like. I am fairly competent with tools but I don't want to take out the dash. Can you give me an idea what to do to replace this part, if indeed it is the problem?
Do you

Thanks for the quick reply. I wasn't expecting it so soon. I'll try to locate the device and replace it. Is this something that I could find at an auto parts store, or will it have to come from a dealer?

Your local parts store should be able to get it if they don't have it in stock.
