Blower resistor

Do any of you know where the heater blower resistor is located on our P30s?

I believe you will find it behind the panel in front of the passenger seat. It should be mounted within the ducting where air flow will remove the heat generated within the resistor coils. You should look for several wires connecting to the assembly. In the same general area where you recently installed some electronics for your rear view cameras.

Maybe not the same layout as yours but item 29 upper left is the resistor. Picture may be rotated.

Thank you Lance. I had no idea where to look. Ive lost low and medium on my blower and the high setting works fine. Checked my fuses, all good. I'm thinking its the resistor. It will wait till we get home, stayed in Barkcamp SP last night. Ohio



On a side note....you guys sure gave us some fun and awesome food supplies..THANKS!!!!!

Thanks guys, Ill start my search behind that kick panel. As long as Im in there I need to investigate some ducts n whatnot to get ready for winter travels west....

Shawnee was really pretty, very few rigs there. Nice place. Hickory Run kinda sucked. Had about 5 rigs in the park and they had us grouped all together ??????
Plus, we have never run into "pet sections" in state parks before. Limits available sites a bit. PA and OH both seem to abide by the same policy. I get it but just never seen it before

Wellll, it wasn't a bad resistor after all. Apparently as I was installing the new camera system I knocked the feed wire of the connector at the resistor. Yeeehawww, easy fix.
My spot light had also quit working during this last trip. Not that I use it much but it's there and I want it to work correctly. I pulled the controls out of the wall to access the two inline fuses. One of the fuse holders had the wire pull loose from one end. Had a spare holder on hand and spliced it in, yeeeehawwww, easy fix number two. Now something is gonna take a big dump on me, that's how this works ...right?

Mayco,

As a tip, while I know the resistors range in cost from $20-$40, often times the loss is due to superficial rust. Amazingly if you put a rust remover gel product in a small plastic container and soak your resistor in it, you can often get another 5-10 years out of them. Cost on the rust remover gel is $8-10 though, so you are faced with diminishing returns. Usually you can inspect it and tell if it is actually shot, or just too much rust. I have used this trick on a Ford F150, Chevy Camaro, Pontiac Fiero, and my Saturns.

As a side note, if you are traveling though our neck of the woods, I have extra rust remover gel.
