My 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport's AC/Heater Fan would only work on high speed. I did a little research and narrowed the problem down to the BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR. I ordered this part from Advance Auto.com [...] It only took me about 5 minutes to install this part. It fixed the problem, now all speeds work on the blower/fan.

        Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Blower Motor Resistor:

        This resistor is very east to install once the kick shield is removed from above the front passenger's footwell. Then simply remove two (2) screws, unplug the electrical connection and reverse the proceedure to reinstall. The fit is perfect. *DO NOT* test the resistor until it is screwed back into place. You do not need to be a mechanic to install the resistor. Anyone with a screwdriver or nutdriver set and some common sense can make this repair. Replacing this resistor should be considered before replacing the heat/AC switch control panel. Fan switch will not work on all positions, or at all, indicating fan switch failure. However, more often than not, one or all of the resistor wires are at fault...not the fan switch.

                My Jeep blower had gone to that 2 position place of high or off, the latter being the least useful. A quick internet search revealed this as the culprit.

                Two important notes: Do not just plug this in and try it. It needs to be bolted into the heater box. You will blow the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse can be purchased at Radio hut.

                    if your fan speed has been gradually not working on lower speeds, and working on the high speed, this part will probably fix it. some problems on GMC envoy and jeep cherokee, replacing heater fan blower resister fixed both.

                        An easy fix that will save you the trip to the mechanic. You'll just need some help finding how to get to it. Overall repair took less than an hour (5 minutes to actually install).

                              This is under the glove compartment inside the car.
                              Take away the glove box via 4 screws, lower and remove
                              glove box. Now remove the plastic covering under the
                              glove box area, around where your feet would kick it
                              as sitting in passenger seat. you will see a connector
                              with two 8 millimeter bolts. just remove the connector
                              and 2 bolts, the resistor will just fall away. if it's
                              bad it will be falling apart on the backside of it.
                              mine was corroded. Get a new one and install. Easy.
