Truck is eating blower motor resistors.
Yea, new guy here.
I bought a 2003 F 250 FX4 with 121,000 miles. I love the truck but this thing is eating resistors like nobodys business. Sometimes they last 10 minutes and this last one lasted about a week. The dealer is installing these because that was a stipulation when I bought it that they would fix the blower motor. I did a search of this forum and didn't find anyone with the same problem.
Here is a little info on it. The wiring looks good, no frays or splices. The connector is rust free and appears to be making good contact. thay are also putting the clear contact gel on the connections. The blower works fine. Doesnt have any weird noises or smells and works on all speeds until the resistor quits. Then - high only. The truck is stock and was a one owner North Texas truck with no reported accidents.
Any ideas on where to look next before the dealership starts to buck me on this?
