Finally found some time & courage to do this. Having to put the car in service mode & to lose a bit of coolant upon dismantling held me off. My 1st stage fan had long left me, so I'd just been relying on A/C to bring in the hi-speed for engine cooling since. NOT HEALTHY. This was what I did. 1. After finally removing the fan, the bad resistor was sawed off its mount. 2. Plugged in its place & soldered, of course, were 2 wires long enough to bring it to the LH signal indicator area. Looped & taped the ends together to bring in the high when low is called & to have the option of installing an external resistor by the LH bumper area anytime I decide to. 3. Taped up the new wires w/ black electrical & ziptied it to the rad fan harness. 4. Reinstalled everything back. Why the surgery? 02s don't have a choice when doing that resistor. Plus, results are Cooler engine, A/C compressor protection, peace of mind. I have high speed @ 1st stage now. Still observing if I'd go get that resistor to bring this back to spec. I'm liking the flexibility. Attached are some pics of the busted resistor & wiring mod.
