Worked 2 days only

Easy replacement. Fit close enough. Stopped working after couple days. Removed reinstalled. No luck. Will return to store for testing or replacement. Connector looked okay so thinking part is defective.

        Exact fit for 2012 Escape and corrected the Issue

        Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Blower Motor Resistor:

        This part corrected the HVAC Blower issue of running only on high, and off on all other settings. It was an exact replacement for the OEM part. Easy to change; located right behind the glove box. Remove the wiring harness from the top, and two 8mm screws and lift right out. Lifetime warranty a plus if it decides to go out again, which seems to be a common problem.

                  My 2012 Escape blower motor quit working on the first two speeds. It seems that this is a common failure and this resistor got everything. having a lifetime warranty is a plus since failure is common. A reasonable priced way to fix a nuisance problem.

                      Hi Bruce, happy to assist you! The blower motor resistor can be accessed from under the right hand side of the instrument panel. Disconnect the blower motor resistor, electrical connector and remove the screws. Then remove the blower motor resistor. To install, reverse the removal procedure.

                  • Q:

                    What are the normal resistance values for a blower motor resistor for a 2008 Ford Escape XLT V6? The blower runs normally on fan speeds 1, 2 and 4. It also runs on fan speed 3 but, oddly, the actual blower speed is the same as 2. Using the right prong as the constant "black" (black wire hooks to it), the ohm readings to the other three prongs are very low. Numbering left to right, prong 1 is 2 ohms, prong 2 is 1 ohm and prong 3 is 1.2 ohms. I'm trying to figure out if the problem is in the blower resistor or the fan dial switch.

                      A:

                      With reference to your inquiry on the BWD HVAC Blower Motor Resistor - Part No. RU1133 and replacing the blower motor resistor on your 2004 Ford Freestar you have to access the blower through the glove compartment. Open the compartment and press the tabs on the sides in the back of the compartment. If you look inside the bottom right you will see the blower motor and blower resistor mounted right next to it. Remove the three screws and the wire harness and replace the blower motor/resistor.

                      A:

                      The Blower motor resistor in a 2005 Mustang GT is behind the panel under the glove box on the passenger side. It should be held in with several screws and it should be as simple as unscrewing, unplugging, and plugging the new one in.
