    I am trying to fix my own a/c. # XXXXX I took my car to a garage because my ac was blowing only hot air when outside temp is hot. the garage said they checked the coil it was ok but oower was intermittent testeed and removed relay ? and ac worked for 3 months and one night I went to turn it on and no air as I drove sight air cool started to flow but no volumne and when I turn the speed controls nothing also when I turn on max air everything goes off, this is i'm checking the resistor. I don't mind paying if the person know how to fix the problem but I don't like getting ripped off if I can help. Am I looking in the right place?

    my next question is above. Am I looking in the right place for my a/c problem by checking the resistor of the blower motor or do you think I should look elsewhere. Thanks

    Then you are on the right track by looking at the resistor.
