Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer.
This is a big issue with the Cougar. The blower motor resistor goes bad. Replace the resistor and you'll be fixed up. Here is the procedure. Hope this helps.
Best of luck


1 Remove the footwell upper trim panel (passenger side).
  • Remove the pushpins.

  1. Disconnect the blower motor resistor electrical connector.

where is this blower motor located and how easy is it to get to
Expert:  Al Smitty replied 7 years ago.
The blower motor is located under the dash on the passenger side, but I don't think that is your problem. It could be, but it is more likely the blower motor resistor.
