    All of a sudden our CRV's heater fan quits, but heat still finds its
    way to the vents. Windows eventually defrost, but this will be a big
    problem in Newfoundland later this winter. The local Honda dealer
    diagnosed the problem as a "resistor" needing to be replaced. The
    part is on order, but it'll cost me $200+install!!

    My question is what kind of resistor plays a part in the fan failure,
    let alone a $200 resistor? What options do I have?

    TIA & cheerios from the Avalon Peninsula :eek:)

    Your parts diagrams are at www.slhondaparts.com, and it's actually a
    TRANSISTOR, I think.

    Here's a few threads about fixing it yourself.

    If you're handy, call back and cancel the part from the dealer...
