Most likely the connector that plugs into the resistor.
It corrodes and if you're lucky you'll only need a new resistor.
Everything broke apart when I tried to unplug mine and even the connector is shot.

Did you use the search button at the top of the pane for 'blower motor' ?

This topic has been covered quite a few times in the past week or so.

Under the hood on the passenger side , against the firewall is the blower.
It's a round black thing with four (4) screws holding it .
The resistor is mounted just below and to the right of the motor . Look for the pretty colored wires in the plug.

I used the search bar dip****, ask questions before you run your keyboard. none of these pages covered where EXACTLY the actual unit is in a 2000 and on top of that none said EXACTLY where the resistor is. I went on to use google and such and only found diagrams but not locations. thank you OTR you actually helped someone, way to go, Mr. 99 needs to go recite the definition of a troll 10 times

Also, seeing you don't know how to drive it makes even more sense why you chose your username.




Learn how to make a thread. You're supposed to post your question in the body of the thread, not the title. Yoo soo stoopidddd

Clean up the connections first.
If this helps then use new Wire Lugs Connectors, crimped or soldered on and then use Heat Shrink w/adhesive inside to seal them up.

I was told the cleaning and sealing fixes the problem.
