YES I noticed on my resistor that the TWO LEAD PRONG which accepts powere looks to have crappy metal connectors in it. One of mine looked pretty smashed down. But was still not my issue. There DOES appear to be room for movement in there where there should not be which could make a crappy 12V connection...

Posted By: coach moe Brit, the issue was a simple fix for me as it turned out. Roughly 6 months ago I replaced the resistor again and it did not resolve the issue. After further research and investigation it turned out to be the wire harness ( a common problem ). Ordered the harness from a big box chain reillyO's. Came in next day. 15 minute fix. No problems since. The harness is the one that connects to the resistor itself. Do a search for 2008 Tahoe blower motor resistor wire harness....Or something to that effect. I really hope this helps you out.

The RESISTOR mounts by two screws and actually sits INSIDE the blower motor compartment so the air can cool it ( Or at least in direct vicinity ductwork - I think I recall). Did your fan come with resistor installed, ? Or did you actually take the old resistor off OR replace only the fan motor with Squirrel cage?? and put back in new fan housing. And forgive my ignorance if the fan is replaceable INSIDE the direct motor housing I DONT RECALL... Looking at pics at store I see the fan and motor do not appear to come with resistor so perhaps it just mounts in nearby air duct housing and not related...??.. It JUST SEEMS ODD FOR THAT fan motor TO COMPLETELY FAIL AS this is what the resistor protects...

I can def see where it could be nice to replace the fan though, AND BASED ON NOISE LEVELS due to wear. You cant even hear yourself think anymore in my wife's 2003 tahoe when its on high speed... Nice to know they are under 100 bucks....

Posted By: Southtx77 Thanks for the help, it ended up being the blower. Replaced it yesterday, now everything works.
