2006 jeep Liberty blower motor resistor were is it at and how to get it out?

I have a 2006 liberty with the 3.7 V6 and my blower motor fan speed works on 2,3,4 speed's but not on number 1 the slow speed from what i've read its the resister that goes out most of the time and just the high speed works all my speed's work but not number 1 speed so its got to be the same thing.If i get a new resistor were is it at and how do u get it out to change it? is it by the blower motor itself? thanks for your time.

Re; fan blower

I believe there was a recall on this, it is worth a call to the dealer even if you are beyond the mileage warranty period.

Alternately, there could be a fuse blown, they are located to the left of the steering wheel on the side panel facing the door.

Good luck!

The resistor pack is pretty inexpensive and accessible through the glovebox.

I believe there are a couple of threads on this forum with instructions on how to change it; I'm sure you can find them with a quick search.

Blower motor in a Jeep Liberty 2004 Sport

Where is the blower motor resistor item located in a 2004 Jeep Liberty ?
I am having the same problem and am going to try and replace it myself.

Thanks for any help,

Easy replacement, right behind the glove box. Drop the door on the glovebox and you can see it. I had the same problem with my 1 setting and bought the part from the dealer and replaced it in about 5 minutes.

Blower motor

I have the same problem, however my #2 setting didn't work. Then all settings quit working. I replaced the blower fuse under the hood. Then my blower started working, however #2 was still dead. Then the blower quit working again. Then my battery went dead. The battery is five years old and I needed to replace it anyway. Purchased new battery. Now blower fan quits again all together. I haven't touched the blower resistor behind glove box. Thinking about giving it a try? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

For those that might read this thread on a search for a Jeep KJ resister pack,

Standard part# 5131719AA

Or you can use a much heavier duty resister pack from a Chysler Sebring for a few more bucks, and hopefully not ever have to do it again. Direct replacement.

Sebring part# 5174124AA

My Jeep Liberty 2002 Limited is overheating and has plenty of anti-freeze and replaced the radiator fan because that is not working. The new one is not working either and all fuses work fine, any suggestions? Could it be the resistor and where can I find it and what does it look like?

The resistor pack is a part of the interior blower fan equipment/control. If i'st going bad you lose one or more interior fan speeds.

Not what you are looking for. Other members will chime in I'm sure as to what points you need to start looking at.

Might be a good idea to start your own fresh thread, as this one is for a differant issue.

remember its a RESISTOR so its stopping the full 12 volts from getting to the fan so if you use 1 or 2 speed alot it will burn out cause the resistor gets HOT thats why they put it in the cold air box so it will get cooled off. i always use 4 or 5 and just regulate the temperture with the cold(blue) to hot(red) . my 02 still has the original resistor. just replaced a freinds 05 that he always uses 1 or 2 .
