    Whats up guys,

    Every few months my ac/heater fan only works on high, then just as quick as it came, it returns to normal working order. Has anyone experienced this before with their truck? Or does anyone know what the cause of this may be? Its back to normal now but I have a feeling that it will return which is not fun because its been pretty dam hot here in central Oregon. If anyone can help thatll be much appreciated.

    Thanks guys! Appreciate it. After further research I think I am going to buy a new resistor and connector harness. For the new wiring can butt connectors that i used for my stereo wiring be used on this application? I dont have a soldering iron but i have left over butt connectors. Good or bad idea??

    Butt connectors are fine as long as you have the proper crimping tool and get the crimp as tight as you can.

    Use the insulated butt splices and use the crimp jaws made for insulated splices.

    I'm not sure what the gauge the pigtail harness wire is... I am pretty sure it is larger than 18 gauge.
