      Comments about BWD HVAC Blower Motor Resistor:

      After ordering the part and getting it installed it worked like it should. my truck fan lost the two lower speeds and I didn't know what was wrong until I was talking to someone and they had the same issue. It is a pain to get a clear view of were it is located to even see the screws. Your kind of working blind.

        My blower motor only worked on the high speed setting in my 1997 Ford Expedition. This part fit great and fixed my problem. Install was quick and easy.

                    Comments about BWD HVAC Blower Motor Resistor:

                    The part looked slightly different than the part removed because of the configuration of the resistors on the back but it fit fine and the fan now works.

                    The part I removed from the 1997 Ford F150 was so rusted it crumbled in my hand.

                    The most difficult part of the repair was finding the part location. The service manual I had purchased for the truck did a poor job of showing the location but fortunately in todays world there were You Tube videos showing the replacement. Once located and using a mirror to see up behind the blower ducts it was a simple replacement.

                      Product just as described. Only issue was location of resistor behind glovebox up under inside passanger side. AA pointed me to a local service station with experience and they installed it in 30 minutes.

                                    The resistor should have burnt out. The blower speed switch switches in different resistors in series with the motor. More resistance, lower speed. "High" is no resistor in series, just the motor. The resistors are usually mounted together on a block, and usually stick through the blower housing into the airflow to cool the resistors.

                                  Does the resistor work with the compressor. My 2003 Ford Escape 2.0L, has problems maintaining cold air. The air is cold some times and not at other times. I have had it checked out with my mechanic. Still after a few checks its seems to still be running wrongly. Could the resistor be the possible issue?

                                    The blower motor resistor uses different amounts of resistance to control the speed of the blower fan.

                                    Most blower motor resistors are located in the dashboard, on the firewall, or near the blower motor.

                                    In the engine compartment, on firewall, passenger side, next to and just below blower motor. It has an electrical connector and is held on by two screws. I just looked at mine.

                                    Without knowing the vehicle information, we are unable to give an accurate answer. On most vehicles that I have seen however, they are located near the blower motor. The blower motor is usually located behind the dashboard.

                                    Sounds like the relay has developed some kind of "short" in the system.

                                    Usually, these are located near the blower motor which is usually located under/behind the dash on the passenger side.
