blower fan question

Fan only works on high. Experience tells me that it is the fan motor resistor, do any of you know where it is? I.E. behind the switch or near the air box. Any input would be great!

The blower motor resistor is behind the glove box, if you have a TJ, maybe in the same location for other models, I don't know.

Sorry bout that, it is a 2001 wrangler sport 4.0 6 cyl. All of your info is very appreciated. I kind of figured it would be behind the glove box cuz when I did the heater core last year ( pain in the ass), I think I remember seeing it. Thank you!

2 screws. Under the glove box

My entire Hvac system fried. Very common. Replace the resister but pull the switches and give a good look for damage/melting.

Woah..... CT

Where abouts?

Switch in my buddy Anthonys 98 Wrangler melted inside and it only worked on high.

If the resistor doesn't fix it pull the switch from the dash and check it.

I checked the switch and it's good. However, the resistor I got from napa does'nt look quite right. The one in my jeep looks more like a breaker instead of a resistor. I gotta take it apart tomorrow.

It is possible I am looking at the wrong part. I followed the harness back and there appears to be a plug behind the ductwork. So I will look more closely in the daylight.
