Re: Heater Box resistor

I don't think it matters as long as it fits into the hole and the flexible wire harness can plug into it.

However, do a dry run of the harness to the resistor block and see how the connector falls. This would determine the direction of resistor block install.

Re: Heater Box resistor

yes it is necessary it is what gives you the different blower motor speeds, the current passes through different resistance to lower the current to the blower motor for low and med speed
