#2 of 110 A/C, Heater Blower Resistor
Nov 23, 2005 (11:52 am)
The fan blower on my '99 Sebring convt.has just now started to work only on HI speed. I have seen posts about the resistor needing to be replaced and I have the part #. Would someone please explain to me where the resistor is located and how to get to it (if it is hidden behind panels, etc.).

Hi Rick, my wife just informed me she has the same problem, I checked fuses, but that car doesn't seem to have a separate high fan motor fuse. I'd appreciate any info on the resistor, where it's located, dealer part, if that corrected the problem? Thanks. Mark

The resistor is located under the glove box. There is a plastic housing held in with two plastic fasteners, pry them out and pull it forward, it will slide out on the right when facing. There are two wire harnesses going into the resistor, pull them out, will have to pry a bit, then unscrew the two screws, the resistor will drop right out. Part # 04885844 I believe. Hardest part is laying on the floor board upside down, but it's not too bad.

This is a late comment to your post in December. I just had the resistor replaced at a cost of $135.00. I thought this was really an overcharge but I needed to get it fixed and they had already ordered the part (also a different part number than you posted.) Do you have any idea of the cost?
Also both head light bulbs replaced at a cost of $70.90. All of this included labor.
I have had trouble with the tires, wheels, electrical system, transmission shifts hard, and now lights and resistor. Also it still takes about 45 minutes for the heater to blow warm air even after the new resistor!
$31,000 for this???

You've probably considered this already, but whenever I've had no heat but had a functioning blower, the problem has been the engine coolant thermostat.
#7 of 110 Heater Blower only works on 2 of 4 speeds

After diagnosis, I determined that the Blower Motor Resistor on my '02 Sebring Convertible was inop. The new resistor looked not at all like the old one. I was told that the old one had lots of problems and this would work. The only hitch to the replacement is the fact that you have to use a small hacksaw to make the mounting hole wider to accomodate the new part. It works fine now.

We have a 2000 that is experiencing the same thing. I replaced the resistor and still didn't work. Then I replaced the control head in the dash ($160) and still didn't work. I was wondering if you might have the part number of the new resistor? Appreciate any help that you can offer.
#9 of 110 Broken contact on rear defroster?
Feb 13, 2006 (5:01 pm)
My rear defroster takes a VERY long time to clear the window. I discovered that one of the 2 wired metal contacts is no longer touching the glass. (There's one on the left and one on the right of the window) If I solder it would the defroster work properly again? and most importantly, Is there anything I could damage by soldering it? If I can't solder, do you have any other suggestions?
The car is a '96 Sebring convertible by the way

I have a 2000. Last year the right contact came away from the frit. I went to the dealer, several auto glass outfits and one collision shop. The all said the entire back window has to be removed and replaced by sewing a new one in. The contacts cannot be bonded or soldered. The cost is over $1000. Screw that, I can live without the rear defroster and I live in a northern state.
