    Sounds like you're not replacing the resistor connector. You need to replace the resistor connector at the same time.

    Blower motor is drawing too much current. Replace it

    Look at both connectors on the motor. I'd be willing to bet one or both of them are burned.

    Check the plug that goes to the resistor connection and the white plug that goes to the motor? If they have burn marks you need to replace the connector plugs.

    Part number 90980-10916 Connector

    Part Number 82998-12380 Wire and terminal

    Not sold as a kit, sold as each. So you will need one of the plugs and two of the terminal and wires.

    Connector:

    Terminals:

    You may also have a burned resistor connector and may need these:

    Plug Number 82141-04M40
    Resistor Number 87138-04052
