    my resistor pack has bit the dust , new one on way , but is there any way of just sending power to the blower temporary until it arrives , , getting a tad steamy in this damp weather

    TBH I would wait for the resistor pack to arrive-You could try bridging the terminals but may end up blowing the fuse or worse

    And sorry if it appears like I was telling you off-Not my intention but it is stated in the forum rules It saves us a lot of hassle and is helpful for anyone looking up a similar problem and makes it easier for people to help you if they know which car you are talking about
