Alright, so I read a few other threads about finding the location of
the resistor pack. I checked the fan assembly and didn't see it there
(also, I don't see any wires or connectors that would lead to the
resistor pack). I looked on this website:
And wasn't able to figure out what picture one is showing. However, I
do not see anywhere underneath the glovebox compartment where it could
be. I checked at the firewall and well, can't really see much of it
from the interior of the car.
Any more ideas?
I did a little reading around on some other forums and stumbled upon
something called a "thermal overload relay." I was trying to find
pictures of this but really haven't found anything. Is it possible that
the white mystery block is a thermal overload relay? Could this be the
cause of my failed blower speeds?
Anyone have an idea of what it is? In mystery-block1.jpg, if you look
to the right of the connectors for the block, you will see that the
copper has been burned away from its connection. If this isn't the
resistor pack, any ideas to what it is and what effects may be caused
from the bad connection?

OK, so previously I posted a thread about my blower only working when
set to "HI." Many of you pointed me to a thread about an '86 Supra with
the same issue. Within the thread, it said that it was because the
resistor pack had been burned out due to the extreme temperatures that
it is exposed to.
I have tried to find this resistor pack using diagrams provided to me
by Toyota. Unfortunately, I was not able to find them. I did however,
locate a white block item after unscrewing it from the (insert name of
large black box behind glovebox, sorry I can't remember the name). It
had four wires connected to it and was screwed in with two screws. I
looked at the connects on the white block and noticed that one of them
had been shorted out (wasn't connected).
Since I FINALLY got my digital camera a pair of batteries, I have
Picture showing the location of where I found the block.
Picture showing the block after it was removed.
Now, I was hoping that this block was the resistor pack (and my reason
for assuming so is because I noticed that there is copper that seemed
to be burned away). And if it is not, could anyone tell me what this
THANK YOU, THANK YOU. I'm desperately trying to fix the issue with my
blower. Having it be too hot and too cold anytime I run the blower is
starting to be quite a bother.
Hmmmm...this is different from what I am used to seeing...but I think
you're a ways away from the mark.
In my experience with the older Toys I have owned, the resistor pack is IN
the fan cage. I believe, in the photo marked mystery-block1.jpg, in the
background ther is a white cage marked TOYOTA, with an assy #116200-8352,
12V with a big S on it. This SHOULD be the fan assy. Usually, the easiest
way to get this open is to loosen the three screws on the bottom of it.
You can then remove the fan motor, the 'squirrel cage' that is the fan,
the flange that attached the whole thing, and the resistor pack.
Now, my experience is 1988 and older...all my newer ones we have traded
before it needed this repair. But, that should be where it is located.
Perhaps someone with more recent experience may have a different input,
but that's where they were on 4 other models I've had to do this to.
