      Cracked ceramic resistor - what is it for?

      Hello. This is my first post on this forum.

      I have a 2007 Aveo (sedan), and was replacing my left headlight housing when I saw this cracked resistor. What
      does it do? Is it for the cooling fan, or something else? Anyone know a part number? Thanks in advance for any replies or answers!

      Yes it’s your cooling fan resistor.

      Eg.h2o,

      Thanks for the reply! I have one (OEM) arriving tomorrow. Just in time for it to get HOT here in Los Angeles.

      Good luck.
      welcome to the forum. We may be a bit slow here but we are still active .
      Just a FYI the weak point of our cars is the timing belt and associated components. They should be changed every 60,000 miles or roughly every 5 years. Please make sure you keep up on that or your motor turns into a boat anchor.
