Hello, what is the model and engine, you only wrote GTS

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
lancer 2.4L auto, I also tested the plug turning the blower switch on and off which showed me that there was power to the switch when it was turned on. When the plug was plugged into the motor my test light was hot on both the blue and yellow wires.
