I think I replaced mine about 7-8 yr ago when I went through the A/C system; and was able to order it from the dealer at that time.

If you don't want to have to mess with it, and you've still got the resistor, I'd just slap in the JY box, reset the timing and run it. Maybe get another JY box for a spare; the aftermarket boxes...
