totally forgot about this thread.

I don't remember if the fan only runs when in position 4. I dont' think I went that far in troubleshooting it.

I ended up getting an aftermarket resistor from a car parts place even though the fan did work again in all speeds. look at a few youtube videos on replacing the resistor.

So far so good...been a few days..

well this sux.

blower stopped working yesterday, doesn't matter if the switch is at 1 2 3 or 4. I pound on the glove box compartment with my fist and it started working again.

So it's not the resistor since I replaced that.

Replace the blower??????

When I pulled mine and cleaned it, I noticed that the space between the contacts on the armature were filled with carbon from the brushes. You may be able to clean those out with a nylon brush (toothe brush) and restore function.

Because it doesn't work in position 4, it is not the resistor block (but you have already replaced that anyway).

Since pounding on the glove box seems to make it work sometimes, you have an intermittent connection somewhere. Try pounding on the switch and then the blower motor directly (not the glove box). I suspect it is the brushes in the blower motor.

If the motor brushes are worn out, they can be replaced (check spiller's suggestion too). You can also oil the bearings while you have it apart.
