Blower Motor Resistor Replacement
Notice: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
Tighten the screws to 1.6 N·m (14 lb in).

For location and replacement of the BMR. Remove the shroud below the glove box, 2 screws and a snap-pop fitting. Be careful of the courtesy light. Remove the blower moter and disconnect the power harness - - you'll need this extra room to work with. 2 more screws, same size, 7/32, 6.5, 7or 8mm on some, that holds the blower motor resistor in place. This replacement part is less than 40 bones at most parts store. Unplug, replace, re-install, test and you're on your way with about 2 hours of slow paced effort in your own driveway. Typical cost at a garage/dealer - up to $400.

One of the easiest ways is to listen for pump to cycle in tank "HUM" when someone cycles key to on. If you hear "Hum" pump is getting power. The other would be to swap it out with another in that area, with same # on it. Under hood, passenger side, on firewall usually. Should be at least one more relay there with same #. There are so many ways that manufacturers recommend for different vehicles, this is usually the easiest. If I can't test for power in & out of relay when key on, I'll go direct to tank sender & check for power there to be sure.

It is on the passenger side, you have to remove the black plastic kick plate, below the glove box, to expose it (held in place with 2 latches and 1 push pin). The resistor is in front of the blower motor ( sandwiched between the motor housing and the firewall) it is tricky to get to, i think when i changed mine i didnt replace all the screws as they were difficult to remove and even harder to replace. Good Luck, Mike
