Chrysler Sebring Blower Motor Resistor
About Blower Motor Resistor
The blower motor resistor is an electrical component used to regulate the air conditioning system of a vehicle, essentially this electronic part allows you to control the speed of the blower motor ventilator. With the help of this resistor, the blower motor fan speed can be controlled by using a knob, which may increase or decrease the resistance of the flowing electric current to the spinning blower motor connected to the fan when turning right and left. It plays a very important role in the air conditioning and heating system for vehicles.
What is the purpose of Blower Motor Resistor?
The blower motor resistor's sole purpose is to control the motor speed of the blower motor by increasing or decreasing the resistance of the flowing electric current to the fan-connected spinning blower motor. It is an electronic part that basically allows you to control the air-conditioning and heating system installed in your vehicle's blower speed.
How Blower Motor Resistor Works?
Blower motor resistor has controls that determine the airflow settings, it contains three resistors or terminal sets designed to generate voltage in proportion to electrical current and these resistors allow the blower motor to run at lower speeds. When the airflow exceeds a predetermined amount, these resistors, via wire coils, reduce air flow through the vents. Each coil is responsible for setting different velocities. Thinner coils make for an simple electrical flow that helps the blower fan to spin faster, and the thicker coils create more resistance and help to run low speed blower motor.
Where is Blower Motor Resistor Located?
Although each vehicle is slightly different in design and layout, the motor resistor of the blower is usually located underneath the passenger side dashboard.
