Posted: Sat Feb 26, 2011 6:30 pm Post subject: Is my heater control the problem?
My blower quit working... even on 5 and it stunk up the interior pretty well with a burnt smell. I went and got a new blower motor and a new blower motor resistor. I changed the resistor first and the blower now works on 1-4 but no 5. I hooked up the new motor as a test and I got the same results as with the original... no high.
I'm guessing I need a new heater control? Am I OK to run the blower with only 1-4?

Maybe yes and maybe no. If the control switch is shorted internally, it might have been what killed the motor. OTOH, the motor could have fried the contacts in the switch when it went out. I'd play it safe and replace the switch, too.
