Mazda Protege heater switch problem

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  Mazda Protege heater switch problem

I have a '99 Mazda Protege. The heater switch just stopped working when set on lower settings. If you set it on high the fan works. I put a voltmeter on it and found that the lower three settings do not let any voltage through. When it is set to high I get voltage. I am thinking that it is a bad switch. Does this sound like a good conclusion?

Has anyone replaced a heater blower switch in a 99 Protege? If so do you have any tips on getting to it?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks. I'm going to see if I can get a switch from the junkyard. BTW I love the pop quiz. :laughing:

Actually after doing some reading I found that the problem my lie in the resistor. I'm going to check that before I replace the switch. I hope it is the resistor because that will save me a lot of work.
