Thanks for that info.
They all appear OK.
I am getting voltage at the connector to the blower. Looks like the blower burned out, should I also replace the resisters?
TIA

Try lightly tapping on the motor housing with a hammer for temporary relief. Sometimes that helps for time until you can replace motor.

The voltage remains the same at all fan speed settings, and hitting the fan doesn't make it work.
I recall now that I noticed the fan was really cranking great for a while up until it stopped.
So What is a good selection of replacement fan and resister? O'Reilly or Amazon?
Also I looked around and it seems I must remove the air filter box, the fluid reservoirs and another black box which are all located on that side of the engine compartment?
Your suggestions are invaluable. (very valuable)

Also make sure the wire pigtail isn't rusted to the resistor, happens alot and causes a no work situation but you can still read voltage... places sell the resistor and new pig tail together.

I replaced the blower and resister and my AC is back. I ordered the blower from Amazon and somehow I ordered the wrong one. I DID order the correct resister and pigtail. It was a Dorman. Went to O'Reilly and they had the correct fan and cage. Lifetime warranty. Returned the wrong one to Amazon for credit. The new fan and cage was $100. It did not come with the gasket so I reused the original which was pretty shabby but was still in one piece. Held it in place with contact cement. As I saw on online, I moved the airbox, fluid reservoirs, and some other thing right in front of the fan, (cruise control servo?) so there was enough room to work on it. The wiring cables were intact, but resister was a little corroded so I replaced it. If this repair lasts 20 years that will be fine with me. Thanks 2 the forum for the advice.
