I recently replaced the blower motor resistor and the resistor connecter due to the blower not working at all. Now the blower motor cuts off at the max (5) setting. I back probed the blower motor connection and I have voltage and it switches all the way up to 4. As soon as I set it to 5, the voltage drops and the blower motor cuts out. I also replaced the heater/ac control module thinking that was the only possible solution but it still cuts out. Both Contol modules (old one & new one)cut out on the max setting. I have also tried 3 different resistors and still have the same problem. Any direction given will be greatly appreciated.
Do you
have the same problem?

By HVAC control module do you mean the actual unit that you can select speeds? The manual says that the blower motor relay is on the blower motor housing; can't find it. Help!

Already replaced blower motor resistor three different times thinking that they were defective.

Try this: so much of auto references misdirections

Check in the underhood fuse block -see below Itme NO.1 for location of relay

replaced relay; checked all fuses, blower motor still cuts out when max speed is selected.

Is there a procedure for recalibrating the HVAC control module?

What other trouble shooting can I do?

You need to bring that in to the dealership-you sure your alternator is okay might not be supporting the battery on additional power demand
