See post # 4 of following thread for wiring diagram (its good for 2006):

The blower bypasses all resistors when you select position 4.

Most likely cause of not operating at any speed is a overheated (and now open) connection in the 40 amp blower +12 feed line.

See the diagram - many have found overheated/corroded connections in the C200 connector which is behind the close-out panel next to drivers left foot when seated (panel behind hood release).

The panel is part of the carpet / door sill retainer. It can be removed by sliding a putty knife or screwdriver underneath and gently working it up.

You may want to take a peek behind the panel. If the larger orange wire has black and bubbly insulation - you could cut a chunk out and splice in a new piece to bypass the connector.

I rarely visit forum but respond to private messages (PM). PM creates email to phone & please include email address with question. Avoid using Visitor Message feature ... I almost never check those.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
