Location of Blower Motor Resistor

My heating and cooling fan has had its resistor shorted out. This is evident, as the fan only blows at full speed, which is speed 4. At this switch setting, there is no resistance. I know now that I must replace the blower motor's resistor. I've been told it can be purchased for around $25. Only problem is I don't know exactly where to look for it in my truck, I'd rather not start taking the dash apart searching for it. If anybody could tell me where this resistor is located, it would save me a big headache.

Thanks

That sounds like the same resistor card that I am replacing in my truck for $39 to my door from www.eveythingnissan.com. The blower motor is mounted under the glove box. It is in the corner somewhat covered by the kick panel. The card, at least on my pathfinder, is held in with 2 phillips head screws. The plug has 4 wires, one large wire and 3 smaller wires. You should see it very near to and parallel with the firewall.

The card has an on board fuse that is not replaceable. Joe told me the cards are somewhat problematic for Nissan.

Just replaced mine for my 98 frontier. 24 bucks from the dealer. It is located on the passenger side fire wall to the left of the blower moter under the glove box. Held in with two silver phillps screws

Maybe a different make and year??
I rag on this dealer a lot but so far his prices have been about 20% cheaper for things that I have seen listed on the forum, for instance, the VCV I had to replace was $37.00 + tax, most people on the forum has had to pay 48 or more.

My 74-year old father was just charged 10 hours of labor by an independent shop to replace the resistor on his 94 4-cyl.
Me thinks he was taken....

I'd say so----gramps needs to go back and bitch --big time-----took me all of 15 minutes to replace mine---start to finish-----with a $25 NISSAN factory part.

And I'm nothing even close to what you can call a mechanic.

Even the Nissan dealer would have a tough time charging more than a half hour labor.

Yeah, I know they honked him. Really sad that I'm going to have to step in as this is a shop that he has trusted for years. He mentioned it to me in passing because they charged him the 10 hrs labor and didnt even have the vehicle at the shop for a total of 10 hours (and he does understand how flat rate charges work).

Hey guys, so I just bought the thing and got a great deal, but I can't see the location of it when looking up from under the glovebox area. Do I need to remove the glove box to get to it? I've already removed the fan/motor from the bottom, but am looking for more advice before I go further. Any help would be appreciated.

Did you ever get your resistor board replaced?. I have just returned from the dealer with the part. The part for my 95 pickup is more like a small box than a credit card that the newer models use. The part guy printed a parts diagram showing the location. It is way up and behind the blower motor. I cannot see it. I am wondering if anyone has replaced theirs in a 95-97 model, and how they got to it. Did you have to take off the blower motor?

Just replaced resistor box. Took out glove box and there it is. Unfortunatedly my blower still does not come on. It work occasionally and only on 2 or 3 before going out completely. So now I intend to replace the switch box. I need to know how to access that. Any help?

I have a 95 Altima and I have the fan problem where it only blows on full speed (speed 4)...I want to try replacing the resistor. Where is this fire wall mentioned and do I have to take the glove box completely out to get to it? And if that's the case how do I do that? Thanks, Julie
