The blower motor used to only operate on the two highest speeds, so I replaced the resistor with this part. It now operates on all speeds as it should. This is a redesign from the factory part, so hopefully the flaws which caused the original resistor to fail have been corrected.

It looks better made than the original but I ended up exchanging it for the one with the 4 holes instead of 2. The one with 4 holes bolted right in and did not require the plastic cover from the original unit. So far, it works great. I would just say to check carefully which one you need.

              Works great, and was easy to install. This resistor is an improved design over the original factory one. I did have to rotate the plug, but that was no big deal. Nice to have all my fan speeds working again.

                            this particular model did not fit with the original bracket on my 2004 Chevy Tahoe, and couldn't mount it properly without the bracket. using only 1 screw doesnt secure it properly, and thusly, blew the majority of the air on the passenger floor in a noisy fashion.

                            However, since i didn't feel like going through the return process and ordering the right part (which didn't appear in stock anywhere nearby), I modified the OE bracket by cutting sections out with a dremel to get it securely installed. Once installed, it worked as needed.

                            do yourself a favor, and take yours out to compare before ordering.

                              Easy to install, had to rotate the main harness plug 180 so it would click into the resistor female plug.

                              The price is way cheaper than other resistors for the same purpose.

                                  Hi Dawg, great question! The blower motor resistor should be the possible cause of the problem on your vehicle. However, I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis before buying and having parts installed that may not solve or be the problem.

                                  With reference to this BWD Blower Motor Resistor - part# RU1064, the problem could be a faulty rear blower motor or resistor on your Tahoe. You will need check the fuse for this circuit first. It is in the under hood fuse block FUSE - RR HVAC 30 AMP and there is another fuse in the L. instrument panel fuse block for the switch FUSE IGN 3 -10 AMP. Test these with a 12 volt test lamp or a volt meter. Next you will need to access the blower motor and test for voltage at the motor and the resistor.

                                I have an 05 chevy suburban 5.3l v8 flex fuel.
                                Would this part cause the rear blower not to function? If so this looks different from the one on the truck not. The one I have has 2 plugs and the plug for the motor is between them. Would this still be the proper part?

                                  Yes, this BWD Blower Motor Resistor(Part No. RU1064) fits your 2005 Chevy Suburban 5.3L V8. Symptoms of a Bad Blower Motor Resistor: Intermittent Operation: When the resister of the blower motor starts to fail, the motor operates only intermittently. This often presents itself as the blower fan not kicking on until the engine is producing a certain level of electric current. The higher current can make the jump across the resistor contacts that are going bad and get the blower motor to engage. The blower motor could stop working again on longer road trips when the car is at a cruising speed and the electrical current of the motor drops again. No Lower Settings: The lower settings of the blower motor require less electrical current to engage. But when the resistor of the blower motor is failing, it creates a larger gap between the connectors. This gap may be too far for the electric current to travel across. When this happens, the lower settings of the blower motor aren't able to function. The top setting of the blower motor may still be operational. Reduced Air Movement: Reduced airflow is when the blower motor is trying to move air through the vents but the resistor isn't sending enough power to move the air with much pressure. The blower motor resistor is receiving power but not the full force. Reduced air movement can occur at all of the different speed settings of the motor blower. Depending on how much resistor is still functioning, the reduced airflow could be an intermittent problem.
