    Hey guys I'm new to TW but in need of help to figure out what's going on with blower motor.

    To start its a 2009 taco (2nd gen) and can't figure out why my connector to my blower motor keeps burning. I have replaced the blower motor and connector 6-7 months ago due to the same issue. Where I had the blower motor completely sh!t the bed and the connector was smoking abunch. So the last week or so i noticed the blower motor made a squeaking noise when on but also cuts in and out. So I decided today to check out the connector to see if it was loose and that's when I noticed that the connector has been burnt again! I dont want to keep running the heat if its going to catch fire or somthing. Looking for all the help I could get since it is snowing where I am.
    Thanks

    Hate to say it but unless your using OEM parts it's probably just shitty chinesium junk.

    That's for the resistor.
    The aftermarket pigtails you can buy for the blower itself is usually a smaller wire size.
    Which increases the chances of it happening again.
    AFAIK, No one makes a "good" aftermarket pigtail for the blower.
    You're stuck buying the connector and terminals individually building your own OEM pigtail.

    But the resistor is part of the power feed circuit for the blower. So if the resistor has a problem it can effect the blower. I don't think bigger wires are the answer. Toyota engineered the circuit & wire sizes.

    What I am saying is, If OP bought an aftermarket pigtail for the blower, It likely had a smaller diameter wire than the OE wire.

    For instance, just read the reviews on Amazon.
    https://www.amazon.com/Connector-Co...ma+blower+motor+pigtail&qid=1700621884&sr=8-3


    Again AFAIK, all the aftermarket pigtails are the same cheap low quality.
    I wish someone would make a good pigtail. It might be a decent gig for someone on TW if they wanted to buy all the parts and make a batch.

    How could I tell if the Resistor is bad?

    none yet
    a) when a connector cooks, both side are compromised
    b) the initial heat that started the deggation comes from the resistor pack

    Or remember where you bought it?

    Also where did you get the blower motor. Sometimes the motor drawing too much current causes issues with the connector and/or resistor.
    Also any water leaking into the blower area?

    The blower motor is the only thing that's not OEM.
