Blower motor resistor connector

Called the dealer to see if I could get a new connector & pigtail for the blower motor resistor & they want $140.00 for it. That's almost what the resistor costs. I've tried 2 from the jy & those are loose & intermittent like the original. I have a new blower & a new resistor. Now I want them to work before winter.

Check part number 973-421 from dorman products. I believe this is for regular hvac not auto hvac.

Thanks that kit doesn't do the trick. May have to solder the wires on & heat shrink.

Yes it's a Ltd. yes I know it's not a resistor but a module. Local auto parts ppl call it a resister regardless & I have to specify w/auto temp control. I'm going to tack solder & heat shrink each connection individually. Also working on the ac drain leak/clog.

After soldering & heat shrink I have intermittent blower. Did I get a bad one out of the box & now can't return because it's modified?

Bypassed the module & wired directly into the blower. Operates totally on high, no control but blower is good. Been fighting a bad new module for a couple weeks off & on thinking the connectors were still to blame.
