My 2000 Eldorado blower will not shut off, it runs on high even with the key off. From what I've heard, the blower resistor/module should be the culprit. I got one from O'Reilly's Part#RU1229, it's Borg Warner item. I can't find it on my car. I've had the passenger side hush panel and the glovebox out and there is nothing there that looks like it. There's nothing under the hood either. Does anyone know where this thing is? Or did O'Reilly's sell me the wrong thing? The blower motor is out under the hood and the wires from it lead into the dash on the drivers side. I briefly looked under the dash on the driver's side, but nothing.

There is no resistor. Blower speed is PWM controlled and is integral to the blower. You need to replace the blower motor.

That makes perfect sense. I heard it's a real bear to get the blower motor out. Some say remove the valve cover, some say loosen the engine cradle and drop it down. There must be an easier way (that doesn't involve hammers and duct tape).

There is an easier way. Check Tech Tips. There is a tutorial for a Deville, but should be similar.

Well, I got a new blower motor. Now the blower doesn't run as soon as it's hooked up. but it also doesn't work at all now. I even got a second blower motor in the hops that the first one was defective, but nothing. The old one still comes on as soon as it is plugged in. I checked fuses, including the ones in the trunk. All good. Does it sound like it may have fried the control panel on the dash?
