First the resistor went out and now the fan goes up and down while on high. I don't know which way to go or what to test.
Has anybody had this happen to them?

Start with the black wire at the blower motor itself. That's your power to the blower. If you have a voltmeter, look for full battery voltage there. *The blower motor does have a control relay so the HVAC needs to be on in some capacity.

Next, I'd just do a visual inspection of the connector at the resistor. Look for burnt or shorted wires. Anything showing signs of being melted should be replaced.

Can I assume that the resistor itself has been replaced already and do you have the basic four speed switch or the infinitely variable blower switch on your HVAC panel?

When I switched out the resistor, twice, I checked the wires and took the heater control out and checked that too. I thought maybe the switch was bad but no sign of that. The vehicle had a wire cage resistor and the only one I could get was like a lollipop and didn't last long. I found a cage one and put it in.

The motor itself could be failing then. They're a nightmare to remove just because of one screw that's tucked up really close to the firewall. I'm a big ol fat guy so I was never ashamed to add the extra step of removing the seat so I could work with some kind of comfort. It might be worth the misery of one screw to find out if you have a bad motor.
