I added that to my sig a couple years ago. Only 4 or 5 people have mentioned it.

OK,

I cut & pasted this quite a while back. Didn't include the web link so no reference to who wrote it . . .

Quote:
2003 SE, 28,000 miles.
Fan stopped working only on #2 position.
Replacement part #1-05139719AA. This is the "credit card" type resistor.
Cost me 16 US$ (with discount) from local dealer.
Plastic bag that part came in says "Made in USA", however, the part itself is marked "Made in Mexico". The old part was made in Mexico as well.

Blower Resistor: 4885456AB - $20.45
Switch: 5011214AA - $20.25

How to: This is what I did FWIW.

1. Disconnect negative battery terminal. My OEM radio did not lose it's station presets.

2. Remove passenger side door. Crawling around is just so much easier with the door removed and not banging on your legs. (OPTIONAL)

3. Remove glove box door.

4. Remove the screw attaching the under dash light on the passenger side (if you have a light there). Move the light out of the way. No need to unplug it.

5. Looking through the glove box opening, there is a large GREEN connector.
Unplug it and remove the bottom half from the heater box. Pull the bottom half down and out the bottom of the dash.

6. Now you can see and access the right side screw holding the resistor in.

7. Remove the two (8mm wrench) resistor screws. The left one from under the dash and the right one through the glove box opening.

8. Pull the resistor out of the heater box.

9. Unlock (the red thingy) the harness connector on the resistor and remove the resistor from the harness. Credit goes to an earlier poster for this excellent tip.

10. Plug in the new resistor and lock (the red thingy) the connector.

11. Assemble in reverse order.

This took me a little over an hour because the green connector gave me a hard time while trying to remove the bottom half from the heater box. You have to slide it up or down quite firmly to get it off. Do not pull straight out.

As always, YMMV.

I know this thread is a little old, but I just wanted to say thanks. I just used it to change my resistor and it solved my problem.

Bump, also with a link!

Blower Resistor Replacement

In case you have a TJ that is from 97-00, then your blower motor resistor will be different. I found a good link that illustrates this so those without the newer TJ can listen to our loved ones talk AND have our heat/cooling on. :-)

I meant to place this on this thread and placed it on another. THANKS for your help. Got my motor blower resistor changed without too much trouble thanks to this thread. Somehow I created a new problem though, with a squeal on all fan settings. It gets louder the higher the setting. I know it's from how we replaced the resistor but I can't figure out what would cause it. Any suggestions?
