Interior fan speed switch

When i bought the truck (99 350) the fan only worked on full power, I lived with it like that until about a month ago when I changed the resistor (under the advice of my local Ford dealer) and it worked for a week and now has the same problem. When i changed the resistor I notinced that the plug that goes into it was damaged enough to let it unplug a little bit, could this be why my resistor keeps going bad? I don't want to put a new resistor in again untill I figure/fix why it is going bad. Any suggestions?

hi Sean:bad connection at resistor can cause all kinds of problems(loose terminals corrosion)clean and use dielectric,also these trucks were prone to overheating the fan switch connector and melting it.


a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.
