heater blower resistor pack?

I've read all over this forum about replacing this resistor pack when you loose your blower speeds. My questiopn is this... where is it on a 2001 wrangler sport??? I've looked all over under the dash board on both sides of the jeep. I've removed the glove box and can't see it in there, I popped the hood and nothing there. I bought a new one cuz winter is on it's way and heat is a good thing that time of year. I know what the resistor pack looks like just can't find the damn thing!!!

I have a 2004 tj and the resistor pack is behind the ducting in the glove box! If you follow the wires from the fan switch you will find it. I had to use a 5/16 inch end wrench to get it out, but it was easy once I found the dang thing, took an hour to find it. If the resistor pack looks like mine and has a big flat part on it, the flat part goes inside the fan housing, and therefore is hard to see. Good luck.

When you pull the glove box off...sitting in the passenger seat... look through the glove box hole on the left side....about 4'' below the hole.

OK, I've located and replaced the resistor pack. When I got the old one out I seen that the previous owner had cut one of the resistors out of the pack and soldered two wires onto the prongs that the resistor was connected to...on the other end of the wires was two crimp on blade conectors and then a 20 amp fuse slipped onto those. The fuse had blown, melted and burnt the wires holding it, probly not a good idea to modify this part for any reason!

Before I lost all of my heater controls I only had speed four....now that I have replaced the 'franken resistor' I have speeds 1 through 3 but no speed four. It's not all that important but would just like to have all four speeds. can anyone think of why I'm not getting the highest setting for the heater blower?

The resistor pack is totally bypassed for the highest speed fan setting by the fan speed switch. Maybe the previous owner screwed things up there for you with that modification he did.
When you have a choice, buy American.

Schematics for resistor pack 04?

My blower has been on high for a while and want to fix it. I'm broke and want to fix it myself.

Just like to know what I'm doing with plans.

Thanks for any help

Remove glove box and on the duct work you should see a cover with two screws i believe, remove disconect plug and do reinstall. Very easy fix, go purchase one at a dealership. Takes maybe ten minutes. I am pretty sure if you google it you will find some pictures and detailed instructions.
