Heater Fan Resistor(s)
Wouldn't you know it. Coldest day of the year and the speed control resistor (for the heater fan) on my '98 Jeep Cherokee decides to burn out! At least, I still have one speed: Full blast.
The resistor is located below and behind the glove box and there is a kick shield covering the area. Replacing the resistor assembly requires bends and joints in my old body that only a contortionist has, and the eyesight of a young man. And then, there is a trick electrical connector to pull apart. My information says this connector has locking wedge that has to be pulled up before the connector can be released.
Although the repair manual does not mention it, apparently the job will be easier if I take out the glove box.
Due to the extreme cold, this job might best be accomplished by taking it to a repair shop with a heated garage and lift. We are into frost bite conditions at my locaction.
