My truck's A/C decided to stop blowing when it's set to either "1" or "2", only working on "3" through "5".  I wonder how much it will cost to repair that.

Driving through that flood the other day ripped the other side of my air dam loose, and it was hanging on by a thread as it was.  So in the parking lot of Randall's I kicked and stomped it off of the bumper and threw it into the bed.  I guess someone will steal it sooner or later.

I guess I need to go to Baton Rouge tomorrow for my sister's birthday.  I really would prefer not to go, it's horrible timing, but them's the breaks.

The AC sounds like a bad switch in the console. It's quite labor intensive to change out, too. They have to disassemble the dash, and replace the console. There are a dozen vacuum tubes and linkages that have to be disconnected and reconnected. If you can live with it, save your money.

Sorry to hear about the truck in the water. That was some serious rain we had. (I drove a VW rabbit through Allison, btw.)

you needs a blower motor resistor. they're like $30 at the dealer.

Blower shouldn't be that hard to replace yourself. Its accessible through the back of the glove box on my car, and just requires a couple bolts to be removed. Haynes Guide is your friend!

My Haynes book is what let me put the dash back on after ripping the whole front end apart trying to install some fog lamps. If it's just the blower, I'll be very pleased.

it'll be that resistor, as the blower works is what negates a bad motor. resistor controls speeds and chevrolet has problems with the solder traces burning out on them due to moisture from using AC. it should be located pasenger side by your feet its held in w/ 2 7mm screws.
