2000 cougar blower motor

I lost the 3 low speeds on the blower motor today. only the #4 setting
(high) works. any ideas on where to start looking? the fan was running
at setting 2 and just died. i opened the hood to see if i could see the blower motor and all i can say is wow.. it that thing packed tight. might the resistor be under dash?

Quite possible; the one on my wrecker is actually mounted in the housing for the evaporator core as I remember (keeps it cool, I suppose, since a resistor by design gets hot in doing its job).

autozone repair guide

the autozone repair guide does not list the 2000 cougar but the 1999 year model is listed.
that does state that it's in the evap area, accessable from under dash passenger side. question is how alike are the 1999 vs 2000 models?

Your headed in the right direction. The resistor is under the passenger side dash next to the blower motor. If i remember right, you just have too remove the lower dash cover and the resister is held in by one torx type screw size t-27 or t-20 can't remember which. From your description i'd agree the resistor is your most likely cause.
