Thank you!

The resistor in a 1999 Camry LE is located about 12 inches from the center of the fan to the left looking towards the front of the car. It is held into the ventilation duct by two screws. The resistor is very close to the fire wall.

The heater blower motor quit working on my 85 toyota celica supra. What could be wrong? Where is the blower motor located and a resistor if it has one. Fuse is okay. Need help. Thanks.

I cannot say for sure but i just finished up putting one in my 98 grand prix. Most blowers are behind the glove box but you need to get at it form underneath the dash. there should be 2 wires coming off of the blower motor. Probobly a red and a black one. follow these wires and they should plug into the resistor. Now mine was located very close to the firewall and the back 2 screws were a pain in the butt. Now dont work any harder than you have to like i did. The back two screw holes are slotted so you do not need to take the screws all the way out just loosen them up. I hope this helps.

Also it made it a lot easier for me to just take the blower out as that was pretty easy and it adds a lot more room to a cramped space.

I am getting ready to try to replace mine as I have not had any blower speeds all winter. I replaced the motor and controls and still nothing. I just found this forum and found out about this resistor. I hope it corrects my problem. The speeds went out one at a time. I appreciate your input very much.

I cannot say for sure exactly where it is on that as i have never worked on one but it should be between the speed switch and the blower motor so if you follow thw wires you should come across it somewhere. It should have like three wires coming of of it in coils these are the actual resistors but you will need to replace the whole thing. I will do some more research on it but for now i need to go to bed. I hope this helps.

The resistor board for my 2002 Grand Prix looks like the one in the picture that is posted by Mouve. Does the old board have to be removed? In other words, can I just unplug the old board and leave it in place and let the new one just hang from the wires? Or does the board need to be cooled from the blower air flow? It would be a lot easier if I could just leave the old one in place.

The resistor board on my '02 Grand Prix looks just like the one in the picture posted by Mouve. Can I just unplug the old one and leave it in place? It would be much easier if I could just plug in the new one and let it hang in place. Has anyone tried this?

I finally replaced the resistor board on my 2002 Grand Prix. It wasn't easy but can be done with patience. To answer my own question, no you can't just leave it hanging. It needs to be cooled from the fan. Some tips for others attempting this. Get a 5.5 mm socket and flexible socket extension. You can't do the job without these. Remove the glove box for a better view. I didn't find it necessary to remove the fan motor. Remove the connectors first. Cut away the rubber sound absorber right below the resistor module. If you are careful, you can replace it when you are done. You only need to loosen the 2 back screws. Once the front screw is removed, pull the front of the module down a little and push it away from back screws. It should just drop out. Make sure you get the new improved design. Installation is the reverse and isn't too bad. Allow 2-3 hours for the job. Good luck.
