I sure hope someone replied to you before now, but if not YES that is the area, but you cannot see the Ballast Resistor. Its hidden where the blower motor connects to it, in other word where you see a bunch of wires going to a plug, its behind that. I have a sunfire 2000 and its the same Sh.. I suggest u remove the blower motor ( 3 screws - very easy) disconnect the wires from the motor and from the big bunch of wires plug, so the motor is out of your way. The plug where the bunch wires were connector to the resistor is on that but if u look inside where the blower was u shud be able to see it. Remove the 2 screws, the front one is easy and the back one will make u curse. Drop the resistor out. Go to Cdn Tire and get another one much cheaper than the dealer. Put it back together and volia. All in all a few hours work and some choice 4 letter words all aimed at the idiots designers.

I have seen a lot of repitition on this forum and i dont mean to be rude but if you are having a problem with your heater please read through this forum first because there is a good chance that someone else may have had the same problem and the remedy is more than likely to be the same even though it may be a different make/model.
Here are a couple of hints that may be of help.

1. If high speed works and others dont-replace resistor.

2. If high speed does not work-replace relay

3. Most resistors are located in passenger compartment on passenger side above where your feet would go. It will have 4 or 5 wires coming off of it and going to the blower motor with 2 screws holding it in place.

4. Relays will most likely be found in your fuse box or power distribution box. Your owners manual should have the location of it. If you lose your owners manual like I did you should be able to find it online. Here is a good site for ford, lincoln and mercury http://www.motorcraftservice.com/vdirs/SPubs/...

I hope this helps everybody and if anyone has anything to add feel free. Remember most cehicles may not be the same but they will all be close.

Any local parts store should have one or be able to order one for you. If not try a dealership. I none of these work e-mail me with your vehicle information and I might be able to help you.

Thanks for all the great information on this blog.

My problem was losing one of the four fan speeds. Number three to be exact. Thanks to all your help I found the resistor on the front of the fan housing and not where the rapair manual showed it behind the glove compartment. When I removed the conector I noticed some melted plastic and on closer inspection one of the contacts (third fan level) was fried. I Jury rigged the connection and got everything working so I know the plug is the problem.

Question.......can you buy just the plug or do I need to replace the complete wire harness.

<quoted text> 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.
Are you talking about 12 in from the engine fan or the blower fan under the glove dept. I only have high speed fan.........Thanks Mike

Here's a twist to this whole scenario... I have a 2001 Grand Prix, AC/Heater fans works on 5, intermittently on the other levels. At times, when I select the lower levels, my headlights turn off. Turning off the AC/Heater fan allows the headlights to turn on again. I think the car is haunted! I'll try the resistor and/or the relay and see if that fixes the problem!

I gota question for Mike B or Bob Kell or anyone that can answer my question. My 99 Camry has no heat at any speed other than high. And no ac either. Going through this Topic i see that it can be one 3 things. The Relay, the resistor, or the motor it self. If someone can tell me what i should check first or what it could most likely be. That would be a great help

Looking for the location of the blower motor resisitor on a 2003 GMC Envoy

I was wondering where exactly the blower resister is located on a 2002 Pontiac Montana? Last year the blower resistor "burned out" and I seem to be having the same issue once again. However this time my warranty is expired and I was looking to save some money if I could do the repair myself. Any info would be appreciated.
