I have a 2004 Jeep Wrangler and need to replace the Heater Motor Resistor. I have the new resister but can't find the old one to replace. I have looked all over behind the glove box. Does anyone have a picture of where the resistor is located? Thank you.
If you find it, post a pic...I have the same issue with my mother's 03 TJ
What Is A Veteran?
A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, honorably discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America,' for an amount of 'up to, and including his life.'
The blower motor resistor (Fig. 26) is mounted to
the rear of the HVAC housing, near the glove box.
The blower motor resistor consists of a molded plastic
mounting plate with an integral wire connector
receptacle. Concealed behind the mounting plate is
the resistor circuit board.
The blower motor resistor can be accessed for service
from under the instrument panel.
WARNING: On vehicles equipped with airbags, disable
the airbag system before attempting any steering
wheel, steering column, or instrument panel
component diagnosis or service. Disconnect and
isolate the negative battery (ground) cable, then
wait two minutes for the airbag system capacitor to
discharge before performing further diagnosis or
service. This is the only sure way to disable the airbag
system. Failure to take the proper precautions
could result in accidental airbag deployment and
possible personal injury or death.
(1) Disconnect and isolate the negative battery
(2) Remove the glove box (Refer to 23 - BODY/INSTRUMENT
PANEL/GLOVE BOX - REMOVAL).
(3) Unlock the blower motor resistor wire harness
connector and disconnect the connector from the
blower motor resistor (Fig. 27).
(4) Reach through the glove box opening and
remove the upper screw that secures the blower
motor resistor to the HVAC housing.
(5) From under the instrument panel, remove the
lower screw that secures the blower motor resistor to
the HVAC housing and remove the resistor.
I had to replace mine in my 99 and it is on the passenger side. All the way on the floor look to the right side and up you have a lil plastic kick plate and behind there it your blower motor housing. You will see a for me it was a greyish backed part with wires going into it and two screws holding it in. I think it was 5/32" some small size and there it is. To unplug it you have to pull off the clip then unclasp the plug from the resister.
Ill try to take a few picks once I get back to the body shop. I hope this helps.
I just replaced mine. Its held with two 5/16" drive screws. I undid the under dash light (1/4" screw) just to gain some room. I recommend unplugging the 4wires first. That was the hardest part for me.
As mentioned, undo the negative battery cable first.
$19+tax at Jeep. Don't let a shop charge you over a 1/2 hour labor if you have someone do it. Sorry, no pics.
