Thanks, I'll give it a look. I looked at the schematic for the AC system,
but didn't see any magic bullet as far as a relay that could be shorted or a
crossed wire. Thanks!

If we cannot afford to take care of Veterans, then we should stop making

Short circuit across the resistor board, maybe? I'd start by pulling that
checking it with a meter. In my '01, it's located under the dash in the
passenger footwell area. I think your '98 has it behind the dash, though,
where you have to pull the wiper arms and the cover over the cowl area to
at it.
