2009 xc90 r design awd 3.2 L Blower motor plug going into resitor melted

Post by chefmarkt69 »

This moring my blower motor stopped working. So when I got home my 13 year old son and myslef took it apart. When I unplugged the molex plug from the resister it was melted. It is the plug that goes back to the car. Also there was a burn mark on where it plugs into the resister also. I didnt smell anything burning this morning when I turned it on. It was just dead and not blowing any air. I cannot find that plug and dont know what to do. Can someone please help me fix it correctly pleae. Thank you

To replace the resistor undo the bottom cover off the motor with two rubber screws, then two screws to remove the resistor
