2005 Ford E-150 Question: Blower only works on high...lights dim and lose power

 

Question

The heater/ac blower only works on high...Would this cause the lights too dim when it is turned on or too lose power when the idle is low??? The Battery and alternator were both tested and are fine

    Thank you...I removed blower motor resistor and it is fried...Pain in the ass to remove when plastic is melted together...Do you think this is why my lights dim and the cause of a short circuit?
