It is located in the dash plenum inside the truck. Not under the hood

You have looked in the location picture number 2 shows it, and it's not there?

Expert:  AZTechBrian replied 1 year ago.

This is all I have. picture 2 shows the factory location. If it's not there then I have no clue where somebody else would have installed it at a later date. I will opt out in case somebody else knows. Sorry.

Ok, between the passenger side wiper shaft and the right side fender is an access hole in the cowl plenum. You cannot see the resistor, but you can feel it when you reach in thru there. You will feel 2 bolts about 3" apart and the the harness connector between them. Using either 1/4" ratchet set or stubby wrench, remove the 2 screws by feel, pull it up and outward until you can reach it with both hands to disconnect the harness connector to it and then pull it out of access hole.
