Heater a/c blower doesn't work - fuse OK

2000 Dodge full size van, 318 engine. neither blower or vents seem to be working. There must be a resistor or other switch burned out. The fuse checks out OK and the rear blower works fine, so what do I look for and where?

Probably the Blower relay on the housing in the engine compartment. About $25.00 bucks at the dealer.
2 screws and a plug.

Check if theres power on the plug for the blower,if theres no power the best way and cheapest will be to reposition the power plug in for the blower somewhere else.

2009 dodge Cummings turbo diesel 6.7 blower motor just stopped working


Try banging on bottom of blower motor with your hand with switch in high position and key in the on position. If no bower motor action happens, check that fuse/relay is operational. If ok, suspect failure in heater motor or heater motor resistor

Air conditioner/heater/vent will not blow air or turn on


Check for full battery voltage at the resistor block, it should have it any time the engine is on, If you don't have voltage to any of the connectors, there is usually a blower motor relay that needs to be checked if all fuses checked out as good.
If it DOES have voltage to the resistor, put the blower speed to full high and check for voltage to the blower motor, if none, then there is a circuit failure, if there is voltage, check the ground side of the blower with an ohm meter, it should read near zero ohms resistance.

I have a 2002 GMC Savana Cargo van with a a/c and heater blower that will not work. The problem started when I lost the low speed, then the medium, and finally the highspeed. Fuses and relays are ok.


You checked the fuse and relay, did you check to see if you had power at the resistor ?
American built vehicles control fan speed by the power circuit which goes thru the resistor. The high speed usually bypasses the resistor.
You may need a new blower motor or control switch.

Heater fan not working


The three most common problems for heater fans are
  1. Burned-out blower motor resistor. This is usually located on the engine side of the firewall. Sometimes one section of the resistor is burned out but others are still good, so the blower only works on the highest speed settings. If you have a burned-out resistor, check the blower bearings to make sure they are not stiff and causing the motor to draw too much current.
  2. The blower is actually working, but either the intake vent is plugged (I've seen vehicles with the heater core completely blocked by dirt, leaves and insects that came in through the vent), or the heater door is stuck closed.
  3. The motor bearings have gone bad (see # 1). This can cause the fuse to blow, although the resistor usually fries first.
I'm not sure how your car's cabin environmental control system is fused. Check any fuse that might apply, such as Vent/AC, HTR, FAN, etc. Generally you can identify the state of a blade-type fuse by inspection without removing it. If you have a blown fuse, check the blower motor before wasting money on a new fuse that will probably blow. Like any fan, it's supposed to turn easily, and there should not be any roughness or side-slop in the bearings.

Heater/acblower fan doesn't work on high. Other fan speeds work ok. what is the problem? It's a 2003 chevy astro van


Hi, check fuse 12 first. If it is good, you will need to replace the blower resistor. The high speed relay is built into the resistor. The resistor is next to the blower motor and looks like the picture below. There is a connector in the resistor and the 2-wire connector coming out of the resistor attaches to the blower. The blower is usually under the dash above the passenger's feet. You may have to remove a kick panel to see the motor and resistor. Please let us know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Blower heater on my Ford Focus TDDC 2004 doesn`t work inspite all the fuses are ok. what can you suggest about this problem.


Check resistor behind the glove box, take glove box out should be green in colour. Have seen these burnt ot before, should replace the wiring loom and resistor. Not expensive.

If it doesn't blow at all, and/or you only feel a small amount of air coming through the vents (not forced), it may be the blower motor switch (resistor).

Hope this helps.

The heater/a/c air or blower does not work. I check the fuse and is ok. How can I change or fix the problem


The blower motor has a resistor. This is with the resistance coils that give you the various speeds of the blower motor. These resistors go out fairly often. On my 99 dodge it is located in the cabin, under the dash, just above where the carpet ends and on the vent/heater housing, It is about just less than an inch and 2 to 3 inches long. Held in by two screws. About a 7 mm size. Should be an electrical connector. Take care not to break the locking tab. These go out, when a motor gets older or gets dirty, or any reason that there might be more drag on the motor. I once fixed a bad resistor by soldering a fuse in line. After replacing a couple of the resistors. A volt ohm meter, would show an open, no circuit, when tested across the resistor. Ohm setting. This would tell you it's bad. LB

Heater blower not working


It sounds like your cabin air filter has stopped up common problem on these cars. You have to remove the glovebox to get to it. If this filter stops up, your fan will be running on high but hardly anything will come out of the vents.
