did you apply 12 V to the replacement unit to make sure it's not a dud? take a look at the connector going to this and with your multi-meter look for voltages at probably the red wire and ground on green or black- will tell you if the unit is getting power.

Blower motors speed is controlled through a resistor. Check the voltage to the blower motor with the switch on high speed - it should be 12 volts.

    The blower motor was only working on high so, we replaced the resistor and it works fine now but, it didn't solve the air flow problem. Could this be a bad sensor or what????????
