I have a 97 Wrangler. The blower suddenly and unexpectedly quit on all speeds. No previous noises, the fuse is good. I have not replaced the resister yet, where is it?
What else should i check.

the resistor is under the glove box, you have to remove the blower motor cover with 4 screws and then you will be staring right at the resistor. it is a diamond shaped part that only has 2 screws to remove it. easy fix and that should solve the blower problem. i just bought my second one the other day for $47 from jeep just to give you an idea of the price.

I will get the resistrr on my way home from work. My only concern is the resistor fix is usually if you lose hi speed only, not all speeds.
Thanks for the input. I will post results. May not be able to install it tonight though

No, if it's the resistor, you lose everything but high. Here's how to check the switch.

Well, $47+change and 1/2 hour later, i replaced the resistor. I still have nothing, nada, nicht, nyet, nothing.
I will check the switch next.
By the way, the resisto is only available by Chrysle and insnot availalbe aftermarket.
This is great thank for the help and tips

it is not the resistor... i checked all of mine when i lost my lower speeds.... power comes from the switch directly to the fan when on high. the resistor only comes into play in the lower speeds... You can check the switch and the resitor with a multimeter... SOunds like yor switch and i'd double check your fuse.... You can check the blower itself too for bearing failure, obstruction, and jump the terminals to 12v bypassing the switch and resistor...

That was my next plan. Thanks. Jumper the blower and test it. If the blower works then it must be the switch. January was warm and then February turned cold. I have some heat so I can still drive to and from work. Waiting for a warmer Saturday. Thanks for any and all help, tips, info.

What you need to check is the electrical input on the exhaust gage with the nobs. Pop your console off over the exhaust nobs and unscrew the mount. Check the attachments the one on the far right is the electical feed, mine melted right away, so I electrical taped it and got it to work. Sorry my car jargon sucks.
