Nope. it is an open circuit. loose connection of the wires to the resistors.

remove the resistor and check for broken link. loose solder or crimp of clips.

check for burnt surface or burnt clips on the socket too.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Where is blower motor resistor on 95 Cadillac concours


Usually they are located behind the glove box.

Blower motor is not getting power. I've replaced Blower motor and resistor. I've replaced all fuses in the A/C system. Checked the fan relays as well. Any ideas?


When you say blower motor you mean the motor that blows heat into the cabin inside the vehicle not the cooling fans for the radiator. I ask because mention relays /more then 1
I find that with blower motors its usellyI not the motor or resistor .The motor will spin with no bearings left in it will make a lot of noise but spin .The resistor olny on most vehicles comes into play on high speed setting olny .
The most common problem is bad connections to the motor it self 9 out of 10 times .Turn the key to run don't start but the fan control on high start wiggleing the connector and the wires around if the motor starts to spin this is the problem .
If not that 1 out of 10 times is likely related to the INT control switch eighter the switch is not being feed power or the switch is shorted inside .
Do you have a test light HOT to GROUND or a muility meter if so you can test for voltage to the connector that plugs into the control switch .No voltage then the problem is fearther back in the system .
Problems like this need some though before things are replaced . You need a starting point a basic understanding of how the circuit works . You start replaceing things to early you end up lost .
Try the wiggleing connector thing its likely your problem.

Why on my manual temperature control does the blower only work on max, or 4


Under dash on passenger side is Blower Motor Resistor "wire harness plug" which is shorting. it's loose or was previously arcing and burnt up a little from heat. You can reshape the female pins to make the needle pins insert more tight. Or you should replace the Blower Motor Resistor harness if it's too far gone. ( it clips apart, usually a white plug just underneath glove box location. Sometimes is damaged by passengers feet. Your speed 1 thru 3 is resisted. Fan speed # 4 is max voltage and does not use the Resistor. I assume the resistor is shot ( located inside the clip coming from blower motor) or else there is a short on 1 of the wires female to male pins.

No high speed blower on heating or air


check for bad connection on wiring, turn blower on high and wiggle wiring under dash around blower motor and resistor area

The heater / blower in my 1992 dlx has stopped working all fuses ok


Hello hfg.

1. First of all, tap the blower motor gently to see if it starts it. If it does, the brushes or the armature in the motor are worn- replace the motor.
2. If that doesn't help wiggle the connector on the motor and the blower motor resistor. There may be burned or loose connections.
3. If you have power on fuse 7 with the key on, then check for power at the blower motor on the blue white wire. If no power on it you have a break in the wire between the fuse and the blower.
4. Next, check for power on the blue black wire. If there is power there that proves there is continuity through the motor(that's good), if not, replace the motor.
5. The blue black wire then goes to the blower resistor. this resistor gives the different blower speeds.
inside the resistor there is a thermal fuse. It isn't replaceable, only the resistor as an assembly.
If the thermal fuse blows it may indicate that the blower motor is beginning to wear out and draw too many amps. And then you may need to replace both the blower and the resistor.
Check with an ohmmeter across the thermal fuse. If it is open circuit, replace the resistor and the blower. If you don't replace the blower it may blow the new resistor again.
6. If it all checks out to this point, ground the blue/red wire at the resistor. If the blower comes on the problem then becomes the blower switch or a break in the wire to the switch.

Whew.. Hope this helps solve the problem, my fingers are sore..Ha.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a 2000 Saturn LW2 V6 3.0. My heater quit working 2 years ago so I did my hw and found it to be the blower motor resistor. Well, the heater quit again with the same symptoms as...


With the vehicle running and the blower switch set to high and the blower motor not working tap the bottom of the blower motor with the handle end of a screwdriver. If the blower starts to work it is bad. Usually the brushes are worn out and tapping the blower wiggles them just enough to make contact with the commutator and the blower will work.

05 GMC sierra heater blower stopped working. It used to work on setting 1-4 but lost 4 a couple weeks ago and now none of them work. Is this a bad blower , resistor or both?


The resistor is most likely bad but should still work on the highest setting.Would check pigtails to the resistor and to the blower motor for burnt or discolored wiring.You can try tapping the blower motor and wiggling the wiring harness too see if it will work on the highest setting. It is possible that the blower motor is bad as well typically when you lose the speed selection it is the resistor but you should always have high speed.

My heater stopped working, one day a smell & some smoke came out of the vent... I bought a new resistor & its not fixing it> whats next?


Check the pigtail to the resistor and the pigtail connector to the blower motor.Look for burnt wires or melted connection. The blower motor itself may be bad. You can try wiggling the connectors to see if it comes on or tapping on the blower motor.If it comes on doing either the connection is most likely very poor and needs repaired. You can also check fuses just to make sure when whatever burned out it did not blow the fuse.

Inside fan switch has 4 speeds only high works,


I have great news!It is not that bad!Look near the blower motor in the blower case housing ther is a blower resistor.It will have a multi-wire plug in.Unplug this ,and remove the two screws that retain the resistor in the box.Pull the resistor out ward,it will be out.The part store will have it or can get it for you.This is your speeds for your blower motor.If the blower is making any kind of racket,or seems to be slow when it is on high selection,replace it also,cause this is the cause if the resistor going out.

Blower is not blowing and I realize I need to check the controls but need to know where the blower motor is.


its under your pass side dash but start with the resistor first put your blower motor on high and push around on your resistor under your glove box,if it will come on by moving it around its your resistor
