Can anyone help me by telling me where tis is? A picture would be great, as I have no clue.
My fan only works on fan speed setting four. I have looked at the wiring diagram and found the resistor card probably needs changing.

Its in the base of the motor housing, just behind your glove box.
Its got a plug going into it, and 2 screws hold it in.
Take it out and thats your culprit.

Welcome to the forum by the way. :thumbleft:

You can send it to the website admin, and ask him to post it on the main site, no need to put the pix on photobucket mate. :wink:
Also, thanks for taking the time to make a guide, very considerate. :thumbleft:

Ok, I am reading this thread with interest. My 323 has this problem. Do I just get the board from Mazda? Or is there a cheaper alternative to be had?

Well, Ive just been out to the car (joys of working from home !) to remove it, and I could see exactly where it was broken. The resistors look like a bar heater wire. I tried to solder it, but that wire seems not conducive to soldering at all .

So I just used a terminal block to connect the 2 broken pieces back together. Voila ! - It works !

White Dragon, I will have your one please, as my repair is not "proper", and I am sure with vibration and all, its going to fail.

Do you have Paypal? Going to Trax?

Seems to be a common issue, 1st 2nd and 3rd speed failed on my '94 1.6 this morning (along with the cv joint :x ). Thanks for the guide though, it breaks my heart to shell out 50 bucks for such a small part so Im gonna attempt to fix it myself tonight
