Often times the resistor fails because the connection overheats. If this is the case, replacing the resistor is only half the problem. Carefully inspect the resistor connection for any signs of overheating and if found, you will need to replace the connector as well. Many Chrysler dealerships stock this connector due to its failure frequency.
