    My 2000 Chrysler Cirrus has claimed it's 2nd blower resistor is just
    over two months.

    Does this mean that the blower is drawing too much current, and should
    be replaced?

  2. Is the blower blowing the fuse?

    You can put an ammeter in at the fuse, and see what the current draw is.

    I'd look for the airflow first. These resistors must be cooled or they will
    overheat and die, and if the airflow is restricted they will do that.

    How much current is reasonable for a blower motor? I am guessing that
    it draws more current at startup.

    I am going to remove the blower and see if there is any visual
    spinning resistance. NAPA gets $75 for a new one. An OEM part is more
    than double that.

    Thanks for all the help.
