my blower motor continued to run even with the key out of the ignition, I also lost control of fan speed. Pulling the 40A under the fuse panel shut it down, so I figured my blower motor resistor was grounded out.

Requirements:
• Skill Level: Anyone
• Time: 2 hours
• Special Tools: 5.5mm socket (not in my Stanley kit)

Things You'll Need
•7mm socket, 5.5mm socket, 1/4 ratchet, small flathead, wire stripers, splice and shrink connectors

•Step by Step instructions
-remove passenger side hush panel with 7mm socket; their are 3 screws the one closest to the center console is a pain.
-remove the 2 bolts holding the resistor in place; it will pull out of the air chamber next to the blower motor. It is about the size of a deck of cards.
-unclip the 3 prong pigtail from the harness, and the 2 prong pigtail from the back of the blower motor.
-your replacement part will have a 5 prong adapter; 2 will go back to the blower motor, and 3 bare wires that you will have to splice into the harness.
-cut off the 3 wires close to the connector of your harness. strip off about 1/4" of the insulation. 2 wires at 12g, and 1 is 22g. place the bare end in one of the crimp and shrink wire connector, and the other from the new resistor. shrink with a hair drier or torch.
-here is everyone's favorite phrase, INSTALLATION IS REVERSE OF REMOVAL.

•Evaluation
-put in 40A fuse and if you don't hear the blower motor kick in then you know you succeeded. Also make sure you have speed control on your climate controller.

•Conclusion
-for $90 and a little DIY time you did a project that would cost $125 for the part and 3 hrs labor.
