Help identifying component under dash

Post by frog » Tue Feb 27, 2018 5:57 am

Hi,
I have the dash out at the moment and found this component disconnected.
Seems to be a plastic housing with a resistor open to the air. It has SEIM 26 ROMANS 2 marked on it.

It’s connected to the fan /aircon controller circuit board plugs.

Any ideas? I have reconnected it to a similarl looking spade connector that seemed like it was in the right spot.

Cheers
Chris

Its part of the ventilator fans speed control circuit . Only fitted to aircon cars with two fans wired in parallel. Its not essential IMO as the speed control still works without it connected as you have found out.
