2001 Pontiac Gr Am 2.4

I am having intermittant problems with my gauges, blower fan(ANY SPEED),power windows.They hesitate to come on upon first start,then eventually come on. Does anyone think my problem is the IGNITION SWITCH? I had thoughts of the Body Control Module , but the dealer told me it sounds like the ignition switch.

    The BCM cost 289.00 dollars +160.00 labor at the dealer. The Ignition switch is 80.00 aftermarket new and I know I'm able to install it.

Another possible issue, which happens to the malibu's as well is the grounding block, I"m unsure of its exact location on your car but I can take a picture of what it looks like, there is one that controls all your gauges directly. It bolts to a stud on the bellhousing bolts and has a tan/white body with around 10 prongs coming out of it, this would surely cause the issue.

The blower on my a/c quits working, then starts again, then quits...and so on?? is my blower going out or something unplugged?


if it does this on any fan speed it is most likely a bad blower motor, if it inly while on a certin speed such as full high or full low it could be the fan speed resistor located right near the fan motor, screwed into the fan housing

1996 Pontiac Trans Am 5.7 L LT1, The motor temperature gauge goes to zero, intermittently Is there 2 sensor, one for the radiator fan and one for the dash gauge, or is it the same sensor?


This usually happens when the gauge on the dash goes bad. It can be the sensor for the water temperature too mounted on the engine. The sensor for the fans will have nothing to do with the gauge

The HVAC blower fan on my 2001 Pontiac Aztec stopped working on settings 1-3 several weeks ago. Last week it stopped working at setting 4 and today it stopped working all together. What is the most likely...


the blower not working on settings 1-3 is the blower motor resistor. this limits the power provided to the blower motor itself to change the speed. at setting 4 it is getting full power. since it quit on 4 also, i would still say the resistor needs to be replaced first, then see if the blower comes back. you may also need a blower motor. if you have a voltmeter you can just turn the switch to 4 and see if the motor is still getting 12 volts. if it is and doesn't run, it needs a blower motor too. if it's not, then its just the resistor

The blower motor makes horrendous noises on the higher speeds. On speed 1, I don't hear any noises. There's a little rumble on 2, and the 3 and 4 shake the whole car. This is happening when the heater is...


Sounds like the bearings that are on the shaft which the fan turns on are in severe need of lubrication. You can remove the fan unit and shoot some WD40 onto the shaft and bearings.
