Hello, so i am in week 2 of trying to assess what's up with my A/c. It's not blowing the cold air out on any setting. I have tested the resistor against ohms with the respective measurements. But I have now ruled out the resistor because it is basically only for LO, ML, and MH, not for HI. I have tested blower motor by hooking up jump wires from it straight to the battery and it works. I have checked and tested all fuses with a lamp. I have ohmd out the control switch on different settings and received continuity. I have taken apart the control switch and sprayed it down with sensitive electrical cleaner and then let it dry. Anyone else have any suggestions? Today when I went to get in my car, the blower started blowing working. Dumb me, I switched it off and tried to turn it back on and it refused to cooperate.

Does this sound like a short to anyone?

The weird thing is it's only starting up in the morning. When it does, it motor winds down after 30 seconds and then stops

Dang Sgtima, I'm pretty sure I used to date your AC, or maybe her sister :)

Well, I got the old one out and the new one in. It works like a charm now. Nice and cold af. Word to the unwise: getting the connector off the actual blower motor sucks if you are trying to remove it with your fingers. Grab a pair of needle nose pliers and squeeze at the base of the connector (below the gray part of the connector). Once I figured that out, all went pretty smooth.
Shaggy, I think you were spot on with the running capi. I also noticed that when I took off the cover over the coils, lots of black dust with copper shavings and leaves! Anyways, thanks a million for your insight.

So, just to clarify, you replaced the motor?
