It looks like the five wire connector at the resistor just pushes the retaining clip in to disengage the connector from the resistor. Have you power at the white red wire at the blower motor if not check the 40 amp HVAC blower fuse? There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect....
