    By the sounds of it, it does sound like the blower resister as their a failure prone part on the GM's. When you go to the dealer there may be some confusion on which part you actually need if the parts guy isn't too sharp as GM has several different technical names for the same part. Ask them for a "blower resister" or a "blower control module".

    ya B&B ive had my fair share of idiot parts guys the o reily in town there all a bunch of little honda driving punks my one friend ordered a new fuel pump for his F-150 they gave him one for a chevy :dizzy: ... thats why i like to go to junkyards to get parts because you always learn how to take apart a different truck that you dont care about and you know you are getting the right part.

    That's an excellent way to get some hands on experience before tackling the job on your own truck:D . One other thing to check while your in there working on the resister...check the wire connector where it plugs into the resister..they have a nasty habit of melting the pins and the plastic body.
