replace the entire wiring harness
. See photos below
This repair is required to fix damaged components in the HVAC. **THIS DOES NOT SOLVE THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM**

: Passenger side part of the dash (underneath glove box).
: Truck cold (first start of the day in Winter temps), no HVAC fan motor setting #1 through #3 available. Only setting #4 worked to turn the fan on. Once the truck was warmed up, the HVAC fan motor settings #1 through #4 worked fine.
Burnt up terminals for the resistor and connector. Plastic housing for resistor and connector melted.
My fan control quit working on setting 3. After I had a dealership replace the blower motor because of the whining noise it made when it was still under 3/36 warranty the problem began. Sometimes I would have to reach under the dash and push up the connector because the fan would quit working, most of the time while driving. It was very annoying.
I went and looked and the BLUE wire was changing to burnt looking I new it was the resistor going bad. It really melted the connector. I went to rockauto.com and their catalog is superb in looking for parts for most vehicles.
I ordered the parts, a new connector (which was 3 times the amount of the resistor) and resistor ($9) and got them shipped 2 day fedex. The connector comes with gray wires so don't mix up the colors when you cut them and it comes with 4 butt-end connectors so this was a easy fix.
