Where did this new blower resistor come from? because I think you may have installed a defective one, the only thing that supplies ground to the motor is the resistor. Does the blower fan run all the time even if the key is out of the car?

No it turns off with key
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
There's no adjustment to lower the speed at all
Dodge Mechanic: Edward, Service Technician replied 6 months ago

OK, The only thing responsible for blower speed, is the resistor, Did you get this resistor used? or from a discount auto store like Auto Zone or Advance? I really believe it's the problem. I would certainly try another one, and if it didn't fix it, then the switch is bad in the control head. Look at the wiring diagram, the blower motor gets full battery power and then the ground side is switch to give you difference speeds via the resistor and the fan switch.

I believe it's one or the other, and I am leaning 90% towards the resistor.
