      now i already assume this problem is usually caused by a blower motor resistor. problem is i work for advance auto parts and cant find the one i need. my explorer is a 96 explorer limited ohv 6.the resistor that comes up for mine is a smaller one with a different plug and springs on the inside.my original one is a lil bigger and shapes different with a different plug and looks more like a module with a chip on the inside instead of springs.but i pulled it from the location where the blower motor should be.has any came across this problem before and how did you find the right resistor?

      If you have a Limited than you have Automatic Climate Control(EATC). That system takes a speed controller not a blower motor resistor. It goes in the same place, it's just electronic. When you look it up check under Auto not manual control.

      Try Ford p/n xl2h-19e624-ab. I just got the whole set-up from Al (the previous poster) and I happen to have the motor controller on my desk, in front of me.

      IF you have Automatic Climate control get RIGHT part.

      1st problem is finding the thing - normally in back of glove compartment left of blower motor - I found that taking off glove compartment fully gives you much more room and doesn't add lot of time. I then undid the 1 or 2 8MM screws and allowing it to be pulled out gave you much better access to pull off connector. PLEASE NOTE that if you have a "Automatic" system the parts houses will not give you the correct part!!!! I called Ford and got a part number then crossed to a BWD part. On a 2004 Explorer you need a BWD RU1267 about $60 Ford wanted $140. As a side note (fan does not work) - their is a 30A "square" fuse in engine compartment which should be checked -0n a 2004 Explorer I think #36.
