Hello I will help you with your question,

 

 

Yes it is likely that the resistor has failed

 

The blower motor power module is mounted next to the blower motor on the HVAC box in the air stream.

 

It looks like this

Let me know if I can help with anything else

 

Thank you

I am sorry the information I posted before is incorrect. The blower resistor is for the rear blower motor mounted in the console.

 

The power module for your front blower is contained in the rear of the housing and should have come with the new blower motor.

 

Check for power to the blower between the red and black wires. If you have power there the grey control wire should have a changing voltage as the blower control is changed. If you have power and ground and do not have a varying voltage to the blower the HVAC programmer is likely the fault. You can check for trouble codes by following this procedure. Pay attention to the "CCC" codes and I will help you decipher them

 

Once again I am sorry for the confusion while my information was down
