This is the same thing i did in my chevy astro. Same problem and i replaced it with the update resistor and all the speeds work again. The old design i pulled from my vehicles circuit board was toasted black just like this one in the video!

Seen this happen with several 2000-ish GM cars. Wonder if there was a weak design on this part back then.

Why would anyone spend money on that shitbox of a car? Brakes ok, oil change sure, headlight whatever. But fixing the least useful blower speeds? People waste their own time and others.

That's a thermal fuse not a resistor... Resistors on the PCB

I don't know why that manufacturer wasn't smart enough to use pwm on blower motors. This is one of those parts designed to fail.

I like you dude not just because you do a funny "customer states some ignorant statement thats totally not the problem but they are sure they know better" but also because you explain in the simplest form what is wrong and where it is, and what the solution to that would be. *NICE*

They normally blow for a reason such as blower motor bearings begininng to seize, increasing electrical load on resistors. Check the actual blower spins freely or the customer will be back soon...

Could this be why my 2013 Ford Explorer‘s blower is stuck on high or is the resistor one of the new ones that’s just gone bad?

I had to replace one of these, all the speeds slowly went out one by one and my wife thought I was going crazy, she never noticed I fixed it because she always ran it 9n high

Some modern cars don’t use a blower motor resistor anymore, the fan is PWM (pulse width modulation) controlled. Basically it sends pulses of 12v to the fan motor, slow speed is achieved by shorter pulses, so it sends 12v power as a short pulse, as you increase the speed the frequency of the pulses increase until you hit Max where it sends full power. Usually used in rigs with automatic climate control with automatic fan speed control.

If it's turning on at all it likely isn't any kind of electric motor, just for future reference.

Just fix the resistor and blower motor together. The blower more then likely has high resistance in the motor and will over time keep burning up the resistor.

Man, I worked at a junk yard(salvage yard as they called it) specializing in foreign cars and had to pull a resistor for someone. I can't remember which car it was exactly, probably a BMW or Benz, but I had to pull the dash and everything outta that car. Few hour job, for a less than 50 dollar part. I wish they were all smart enough to just put em by the glove box.

That thing on top is a wax fuse meant to melt and shut the component off if it over heats to prevent fires and is in fact not a resistor.

JoeyTheFoxxo
JoeyTheFoxxo Month ago
One thing he forgot to mention. Usually the lower speeds go out first, as the higher the resistance, the more heat that is being created due to energy dissipation. They rely on the air cooling of the blower motor itself. So if you have low airflow (say a dirty cabin air filter) you may burn up your resistor quickly. Make sure the resistor can stay cool!

Probably best to go ahead and replace the blower mower too. There's a reason the resistor went out.
