Hello I will help you with your question,

Was it a resistor or a transistor you replaced? How many wires?

Did the part fit exactly?

Do you have a voltmeter to check the circuit if I guide you?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Resistor coming off the blower I had to splice the wires due to model change of resistor but part did fit no I don't own a volt meter
Chevy Mechanic: George H., ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I think you are going to need a voltmeter, if you had to splice wires I doubt you have the correct one installed. It should be plug and play.

If you want to get a voltmeter they are about $20 for a cheap one and I would be happy to help you test but without one there is very little I can do to guide you.

Let me know if I can help

Thanks
