    hi i have a 2004 2.0 petrol accord
    the blower motor stopped working so i replaced the resistor with a 2nd hand one from a car of the same year.all was good but only for one day now its stopped working again.does anyone know of a reason why my car is blowing the resistors??

    I would have thought a fault with the blower motor is pulling too much current through the resistor. That said I would expect the fuse to blow first.

    Easiest way is continuity test it.

    Possibly not electrical, could be mechanical i.e bearings.

    I'd of bought a new resistor and not a 2nd hand one. The 2nd hand one could have been on its last legs.

    heard that a blocked filter may be causing an overload to the resistor will check that before i buy new one

    Good idea

    Often a good clean up is all things need to work properly again.
