    Like the title says, does anyone know where the blower motor resistor on 2001 Tahoe is located? It is bad in our 2001 Tahoe (have only high blower speed) and I need to replace it but don't know where to begin to look for it!

    I think it's on the passenger side under the dash on this year. Might have to remove a cover plate to see it. Common for the resistor to burn up and char the wire connector too. Not a cheap fix.

    Thanks for the information. I'll tear into it tomorrow.

    NOTHING that happens to us is inexpensive!

    Blower Motor Resistor Replacement
    Removal Procedure
    •If equipped, remove the IP sound insulator. Refer to Instrument Panel Insulator Replacement in Instrument Panel, Gauge., and Console.




    •Disconnect the electrical connection from the blower motor.
    •Disconnect the electrical connection from the blower motor resistor.




    •Remove the blower motor resistor retaining screws.




    •Remove the blower motor resistor.
    Installation Procedure




    •Install the blower motor resistor.




    Notice: Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.

    •Install the blower motor resistor retaining screws.
    Tighten
    Tighten the screws to 1.6 N·m (14 lb in).





    •Connect the electrical connection to the blower motor resistor.
    •Connect the electrical connection to the blower motor.
    •If equipped, install the IP sound insulator. Refer to Instrument Panel Insulator Replacement in Instrument Panel, Gauge., and Console
