Quick Easy Replacement 04 Envoy

Lost fan blower speeds 1-4. Online research pointed me to this part. This Advanced Auto Part looks to be much more robust than the original OEM part and is resonably priced. Read complete review

Lost fan blower speeds 1-4. Online research pointed me to this part. This Advanced Auto Part looks to be much more robust than the original OEM part and is resonably priced.

Took 20 minutes to change.

Tools needed:
Flashlight
7MM Nut Driver
Small Standard Screwdriver
7/32 Nut Driver

1.) Remove plastic kick plate under glove box, 2 screws, with 7mm nut driver
2.) locate blower, remove 2 ea 7/32 screws holding resistor pack on and unclip harness.
3.)Empty/Open glove box and push up wire latch stop in the back so that it drop down and you can get access to the blower connector behind box.
4.) Use the standard screwdriver to release the plug clip of the wiring harness from motor, resistor should now be out and completely loose.
5.) Reverse process to install new one.

The factory resistor burned the #4 setting when it was two years old. I installed one of these and within a week the new one burned out the #4 setting. Replaced that one and the second unit did the same thing. Like the title says this is garbage.

      Original resistor burned up. So did the wiring harness that attaches to it. Recommend purchase both and also heat shrink splices (7) at same time.

      The blower motor in my 2006 Trailblazer stopped working. I replaced the blower motor resistor and it now works great. The resistor has only been installed for 3 days now. I hope it continues to give good service.

      Comments about BWD Blower Motor Resistor:

      I called the local dealership and they gave me a price 35 dollars higher than the advanced price I ended up ordering this part on the advanced website and as a speed perks member I ended up getting it for 40 less than what the dealership was going to charge and it was the exact same brand. Thumbs up to advanced for saving me my hard earned money working on your car should be fun not a dread.

                  I'm glad to assist you, Gary! This BWD HVAC Blower Motor Resistor - Part No. RU1070 carries a limited lifetime replacement warranty. The limited lifetime warranty part can be refunded for cash/credit within the 90 days time frame. After that time expires, it can only be exchanged for a new item. So the warranty is valid for the life of the part as long as the customer owns the vehicle.

                Hello,

                I have a 2006 Chevy Trailblazer LT (4WD/6 cyl). I have read a lot about ATC and manual temp. control. I'm not sure what that means. My vehicle does have 5 speeds on the blower, and dual climate control in the front. Will this item work?

                Thanks!

                  Hi orchiddj, glad to assist you! The blower control module and fan resistor are different parts. However, the answer to this is a bit more complicated thank you think. I would suggest you to take your vehicle and thoroughly checked with a certified local mechanic before buying the parts that may/may not solve the problem.

                Blower on our 2004 EnvoyXL was working randomly and only when fan was set on lower speed when car was started. Now cannot get it to come on at all. Is it the blower motor resistor that causes this?

                  If it is your manual HVAC system, then the blower motor resistor pack is defective or the blower motor itself is bad. If it is the Automatic digital HVAC, then blower motor control module is defective or the blower motor itself is bad.
