It's not a "regulator", it's a resistor pack. It's not on the motor, but in the bottom of the chassis. It uses resistors to drop the voltage to lower levels to run the fan motor at a lower speed.Okay, the blower motor has a regulator on it you have to pull the clam, behind the carbon crash structure,
The fan speed switch is not a rheostat. A rheostat varies the resistance depending on how much you turn it (think volume control). The fan speed switch is simply a four position switch (off counts as a position). Each switch position feeds the full 12 Volts to a separate input of the resistor pack (that's located at the bottom of the chassis behind the crash structure). The resistor pack reduces the voltage to three specific values to provide three different fan speeds.will send power to the rheostat (fan speed switch) on the third page.
rotfl Still have to thwack you for even mentioning it... :thwack:That hurt more than calling the base Bilstein's "touring shocks" - haha
My apologies, I knew I typo-d rheostat for swich after I wrote it & read it back.
Tim, Good Call.
Doh... I know that...One small correction Tim, the resistor pack reduces the voltage to two lower levels, speed 1 & 2 . The highest speed, 3, is at 12V and not reduced
