Blower Motor Relay Replacement $87.03 - $218.37 Get a Quote

Hello, thanks for writing in. The blower motor resistor is what controls the different modes (i.e. high speed, low speed, etc.) of the motor. The blower motor relay is what controls the power to the motor in general. I would recommend testing and if needed, changing the relay and this should fix your problem.
