    Default Blower Motor Resistor 1996

    Ok, here is my write up on replacing my BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR in my 96 suburban 1500 4x4. The symptoms were this: my blower would only work on the highest setting. I still had the function of the vent selector: I could still switch between feet, mixed, face and winshield defrost, etc. The only thing was that the blower or fan would only work when I turned it to the highest setting.

    As stated by all of the forums, it was the BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR. Here is how I fixed it.

    1st - remove the glove box by simply squeezing the sides to allow for it to fall forward.

    2nd - remove 2 screws that hold the Bosch plug in place

    3rd - use a pair of small needle nose pliars to squeeze the plastic barbs together to ease in the removal of the radio harness plug and the plug next to it.

    4th - Slide the Bosch plug forward in order to remove it from the metal bracket.

    5th - at this point you should have the top of the resistor in sight.

    6th - push back the wire and remove the 2 screws that secure the resistor in place. The plug on the top of the resistor is held in place by a plastic tab only on one of the two sides. Be careful not to break this. Simply press in the release and gently pull.

    Then reverse all of your steps and you should be done in no time.

    Dont know if this was already done or not, but I hope it helps out. Let me know what cha' think. i'm out.......
