I have a 2001 Taurus and am having problems locating the blower motor resistor. The guy at the local dealership insists that it is located "behind the glove box." I have looked back there and have been unable to find it. On a friend's 1996 Taurus it's right there.
I have located the blower, under the glove box behind the passenger kick plate, but am unable to determine where the resistor is. I have a manual from AutoZone that provides me with a photo of the resistor, it's cover, and how to remove the two screws that hold it in place. Unfortunately, it's a general manual for multiple years of Taurus' and the 2001 model must have relocated it to another place.
Obviously I am having issues with the ETC and need to replace the resistor in the hopes that this will remedy my problem. The service guy at the dealership told me, "99% of the time it's the resistor that goes bad and not the blower itself."
I'd like to try to correct this problem myself without having to pay $92 dollars for a diagnostic and then paying $10+ for a part.
If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd be very grateful.
