: Please identify this part for 87 Brougham

03-27-11, 01:39 PM

When I purchased the car the owner told me to always have a spare one of these parts in the car. He gave me a extra one with the car. It looks like a fuse of some sort. I have a repair manual and cannot seem to see where it goes. I would like to know the part name and where it goes in case i need to replace it.

Can someone identify this part. and sorry for the poor quality pic.

Thank you.

It looks like a ballast resister from this view, but not quite.

It's some sort of resistance wire. Looks the the rectangular part is ceramic to dissipate the heat. Probably part of the climate control, if I have to guess.

Look under the hood around the blower motor housing and see if there is anything like it, I remember something like that only it was black plastic.

Sorry, don't know what it is, but at least this should be my 5th post so that I can link to photos.
