2001 Aurora: heater fan..leaning towards..the glove box, the fan

This answer was rated:

I've a 2001 Aurora. The heater fan or control panel seems to have a short in it though I'm leaning towards the fan. Generally, after the car is started, if you hit the cover under the glove box, the fan will begin to work. If you move the wires around that attach to the fan plug, the fan will slow down or speed up depending on how the wires are held. I removed the plug and it seems fine. Thoughts?
I think you need to replace the fan. There is probably a problem internally that by moving the plug it is affecting it. You can test the new fan before you install it by just plugging it in and turning it on. But I am pretty sure it is just he fan.
