After having a ignition switch replaced at the local dealership my fan motor quit working a few weeks later. Last week I took it back to the dealership and was told there is a resisitor bad causing the problem. In order to replace I would need to purchase a new pigtail which the resistor was built into at a cost of over $250. I feel the dealership was pulling my chain. Any advise? If so are there any wiring diagrams aviable?

I solved the wire harness for the blower motor resistor card i posted the bullitin so you could read why you have to get the harness too.I also posted the wire diagram for it as well.If you have anymore questions let me know.

Thanks for clarifing the resistor issue. The wiring diagrams and tech info are so small I can't read them, can you post them larger?
Being I am not a tech, in simple terms, can you tell me where the resistor is located and how to get to it?
Thanks

Ok to replace the resistor you will start with removing the ip sound insulator if equiped by removing the bolts and pulling downwards. Then you will unplug the blower motor and the blower motor resistor. Then you will remove the blower motor resistor screws. Then you will remove the resistor.I cant really blow up the stuff I posted without distorting it or losing some of the information. If you give me your email I can email it to you so you print it and blow it up on your computer.I will also include the picture of the ip insulator with the bolts locations.
