Ok. I'll try to remove it in the morning. Freezing and dark here now and have to work on it outside. I'll look online online for a video on removal. I really appreciate your help. Joe.
check blend door functionHave checked all fuses and swapped the relays under hood. Also checked for any codes. Is it possible that the blower relay also controls the blower for heat, air cond and the rear window wire defrost? I started the truck yesterday and turned on to defrost and nothing. Like there is no power at all to the dash controls for these things. All fuses are good even at the dashboard. I hadn't driven the truck in a week but I seem to remember a smell of burning but it was short and gone. If it's the relay that fried, would this also eliminate power to the rear window defrost? Thanks in advance for any help. Joe.
It’s the blower resistor and harness. You should be able to get both parts on Amazon for about $27. What you smelled was the ground wire burning at the resistor. I had the same exact problem. You will see the burn marks when you pull the resistor. You probably smelled the burning more than once and thought it was coming from outside the truck.I just started to take out the blower resistor but I really didn't think it was going to be the problem. I checked all fuses. Not exactly sure in the hood fuse box if there is a relay there. I did swap the ones I could to see if any thing changed.
Look on Amazon, the two parts usually come together for around $27Would this also cause the rear defrost to not work, no power? The resistor for this truck is dealer only and 175$.
Look on Amazon for blower resistor for your truck. it will probably look similar if not the same.Would this also cause the rear defrost to not work, no power? The resistor for this truck is dealer only and 175$.
