Question about 1994 Toyota Pickup

1 Answer

Heater fan is SLOW....

Hi... recently bought a 94 pu w/ 2.4 engine(22re), blower would only run on high,so I got a new fan resistor & installed it. I now have 4 speeds on the switch but they run very weak,only high setting has any great airflow.
The truck has A/C also... is there something else I can replace to get better air flow on the 3 lower settings?
Thanks in advance,Cal

    I have the same problem on my 4 cyl 94 Toyota Pickup. My heater works only on the 2 highest settings, even on those settings they run very slowly. On very cold days it won't run even on the highest setting.

Check to be sure that nothing has made a nest in your blower motor.. I have found mouse nests, rats nests, and even dead snakes inside the blower motor on these trucks..with all the extra weight inside the blower, the low speeds turn slow and will burn the resistor out quicker.

3 speed fan barely changes speed


You are talking about your blower fan for the air conditioner and heater right? More information will be needed to solve the problem.

When you say it barely changes speeds, does that mean it doesnt speed up, or doesnt slow down? By that I mean, is it "stuck" on low, or high?

Most blower fans run at different speeds through the use of a multi-stage resistor built into the fan switch circuit. Low speed is a high value resistor, medium speed is a low value one, and high speed is the fan running without any resistance.

If your fan is running on high and doesnt seem to want to run on lower speeds, the resistor pack may be failing. If the fan is running on low speed only, it may be that the fan itself is beginning to fail, or that the lubricant in it has gotten gummy.

Fan wont shut off in my 2001 nissian altima


Hi Tina,could be your blower motor resistor,it's located next to the blower,2 screws hold it on,remove electrical connector first,take to Autozone and get a new one,if it doesn't fix,they will take back and refund your money Tina.here's a link to the resistor Tina.

Blower motor will not shut off


I can't speak to the cost, a local dealer can do that. As for the reason the fan runs on, it sounds like either a stuck power relay (location should be in the owners manual) or a bad fan speed regulator. Since the fan is stuck on high, I suspect the fan speed regulator is bad. On some cars the regulator is part of the fan assembly, and on some it's separate. Also, there is a possibility you can repair the circuit board, assuming it's something as simple as a burnt out diode. Best of luck!

Honda Accord 2002 heater blower control works only in the high position. The 1, 2, and 3 positions do not work but the high (4) does.


The heater blower is normally controlled by voltage sent to the blower via a resistor network.
In this case it seems that this unit also called the fan resistor is defective.
I assume that 4 is the position where the blower is running HIGH and in this position the blower is powered directly without using resistor for lowering the speed of the blower. In step 1 - 3 the blower is powered via the mentioned resistor network.

In my opinion the resistor network is defective.
Replace it !!!!.

The fan speed selector switch control only works on the highest speed. When I put the switch to the lower speeds there is no air, and I can't hear the motor working. It's as if it is off in the lower fan...


Hello Imrevoy.
When this symptom happens your blower motor resistor has gone open circuit.
When on the high fan position it sends full battery power to the fan so it bypasses the resistor.
That's why, now how to repair?
Here's the manual instruction.

  1. REMOVE GlOVE COMPARTMENT DOOR
  2. REMOVE ENGINE ECU
    1. Disconnect the wire harness clamps.
    2. Disconnect the connectors.
    3. Remove the 2 bolts and engine (and ECT) ECU.

  1. Two way flow heater models only: REMOVE AIR DUCT (Motor cover)
    1. Disconnect the control link.
    2. Disconnect the connector clamps.
    3. Remove the screw.
    4. Release the claw and remove the air duct.

  1. REMOVE BLOWER RESISTOR
    1. Disconnect the connector.
    2. Remove the 2 screws and blower resistor.

  1. INSTALL BLOWER RESISTOR
  2. Two way flow heater models only: INSTALL AIR DUCT
  3. INSTALL ENGINE ECU
  4. INSTALL GLOVE COMPARTMENT DOOR

There you are, I hope your repair goes well.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Heat/ac fan only blows on high


Check the heater control switch,,,,,and the number of wires at the heater motor....Some motors have more than one winding...in which case there will be three or more wires going into motor..there can be burnout in those windings and will require a new motor....check the plug which attaches to the motor....can be bad connection...or at the switch.....but if there is only two wires....then the heater switch uses resistors to slow down the different speeds...and direct connection for high speed....and the problem is definitely the switch...

Heater motor only wokks on high


probley the restor that gives the a/c heater fan motor its power for the low/ medeam speds has gone bad and onley letes it run on high speed because it gives the fan motor full battery voltage on high speed. it should be located in the heater box were the fan will blow air across it to cool it when it is in use GEORGE STIRBER DBA AUTO ENGINEERING

Heater blower only blows on low


This could be a few different things:

1.Check the power and ground connections on your blower motor, corrosion can cause high resistance and a slow blower speed.

2. Check your available voltage at the blower motor on the different settings. it should vary with high supplying 12volts, make sure to do this check with the blower motor still plugged in.

3. Connect the blower to a 12v power source and see if it runs at high speed.

If all else fails i would check your resistor pack, i would not suspect this because when it fails you usually just loose all speeds except for high, but it could happen.

Check or have checked the blower motor resistor. This is usually how they act.
