blower resistor picture request. 2005 jeep wrangler unlimited

After reading through this site, I believe that the reason my ac fan only works on the two highest settings is that the blower resistor needs to be replaced.

I am technically challenged... so can someone please help me figure out what the resister is? Does anyone have a picture of my jeep in particular that shows the location of this part, and what the part itself looks like?


Thank you!!!! This forum is awesome!!

Mike

It's behind the dash, under the glove box, and right above the light at the passenger side footwell. The part you want to replace is the second picture robncar posted, and is attached to a harness gizmo, which is the third picture robncar posted. It'll have a little red rectangular tab to the left of the screw labeled "3" on the third pic.
IIRC, mine was about $20 +/- at the auto parts store. Took me maybe 20 minutes to swap it out. You'll need an 8mm crescent wrench (tight squeeze under there for a socket) and some contortionist skills. It'll make things easier if you remove the glove box door, move the little light, and if your doors are off. It's really quite simple.

make sure you have the right tools, absolutely need the 8mm socket wrench. afterwards, truely 20 minute fix, but be prepared to do some yoga to reach those screws. the guys above had great advice. Thanks!

Here's another thread with pics. blower-resistor-pics in case that helps.

It's pretty simple to replace once you get to it and figure out the locking tab.

My comment was about him bumping up a 5 year old thread.
