If it is just high speed, resistor block is located at the back of the engine compartment on the passenger side of the vehicle under the wiper module. It is sorta hid, so you might need to look for it.

Being way2old is why I need help from younger minds.

RE: heater control  fan
W2O says it's hidden, and that's no lie! The first pic is with the cowl / wiper assembly already removed and that's a hand reaching through to release the clips that retain the blower resistor from the inside. You may be able to see the plug using a flashlight and looking behind the passenger shock tower (up against the firewall) so give it a yank and see how rusty things are first.

What happens to these things is the drains clog inside the wiper / cowl area and rain water drips on the connections every time you go around a corner.

Hint: you probably have a wet spot under the carpet on the front passenger side too!

The resistor is around $20 at the dealer and if you ask nice they may be able to get you a new harness pig-tail because the plug is rotten too. My dealer told me it was no longer available so I had to piece one together myself.

Hint: pack the new connectors with grease to avoid future water issues.

Hint: prepare to do lots of cussing OR spend time removing the wiper arms, the cowl screen, (area with the fins) and then the retaining bolts for the entire cowl. The job may take an hour or so but no cussing involved this way!

Once you look at the new part you can easily see how to release those clips on the inside of the firewall but it may be stuck and you might have to break the old one in the process of removal.

Good luck.

You probably will have to remove the wiper module to access the resistor. The resistor is what controls your lower speeds. If part of it burns or breaks, it bypasses the resistor and puts full battery voltage to the blower motor, therefore high speed only.
