HI there! The switch provides the ground for the blower motor. If you are seeing any voltage at the resistor, then the switch is the likely culprit. It is now grounding the motor so it won't turn on.

ok... the 3 pins on the resistor never show any power. one plug has 12v all the time except when i turn the fan switch to high still likely the switch?

Do you have a volt meter? Also, does the green/yellow wire ever show power?
