had the air on this morning and when i turned the fan speed down it didnt go down. air, heat all blowing on high speed all the time, no matter what the setting. Then, as i shut the car off i realized the blower motor was still blowing on high after the key was out. I had to remove the blower motor rely to get it off.

Whats the deal? resistor? I replaced the blower motor, resistor and relay all within the past year, so they all can easily be replaced, but whats the problem?

Not so sure about today, but back in the day the hot wire at the resistor would melt and cause a short. Sounds like you have a short to live. Check the resistor wiring. Cool

x2 on the blower module. Mine did the same thing, and that was the fix. I can't find the thread showing what the blower module looks like, but it's right next to your blower motor. I removed the blower motor to make removing the module easier. Use this to get you started- http://impalahq.naioa.com/index2.html

Mine failed because of rainwater constantly leaking on it. Does your passenger floor get wet after a rainstorm? Even if it doesn't, I highly recommend this fix because it's only 4 dollars & comes from the factory- http://www.naioa.com/v2/module.....mp;t=31094

Each job shouldn't take more than a half hour once you have the proper tools. The blower module & the cabin air leak part can both only be ordered from the stealership. Or PM Z-spot if you can wait a little bit for a better price.

update: yep, it was the resistor. went bad within 6 months. But! i replaced it (it was covered under part warranty) and just yesterday the SAME thing happened again. Motor runs constantly even when car is off, resistor is shot AGAIN. any idea why this keeps happening? fyi i dont get any water inside pass. floor, i got the plastic piece from the dealer to re-route water at cabin air filter.
