Electric Cooling Fan Assembly
Have you experienced an issue with the blower motor speed selection on a Ford Ranger 1983-2005, or Explorer 2002-2005? The most likely problem is the blower motor resistor has failed and will require replacement. Another common problem is the electrical connector to the blower motor resistor may have a short causing the socket connection to melt.
The 1712270 is a replacement electrical connector that can be used to replace the burnt socket. Using the information below, you can cut out the old electrical connector and crimp this in its place.
