Rule of thumb...unless you get a better answer:  look for a couple of wires on a small plate that is in the airflow of the fan on the heater/ac unit.  The resistor pack is always air cooled by the fan.

Blower motor speed not working

This is usually due to 1 of 3 possible problems.

  1. Bad blower motor resistor - attaches to blower motor and regulates fan speeds. Not uncommon to lose 1 speed at a time until you get stuck with only 1 speed
  2. Bad blower motor
  3. Bad heater control module - less likely but still possible the module is bad and the whole unit requires replacing

Replaced blower motor in my 2001 kia sportage ex, fan only works on high. Any suggestions?

It could be the blower motor resistor, the high position feeds full 12 volt power directly to the blower motor. All lower settings route through the blower motor resistor. It is usually located under the passenger side dash, not far from the blower motor. Two screws secure it to the heater box.

I have no power to my blower motor on my 2005 kia sportage and the fuse is not blown . i tryed my blower motor directly to my battery and the blower works finecan you help me please

You have a blower motor relay or a blower motor resister that could be bad.The relay is part # 1R2122 $20.79 at You could jump the relay to see if that's your problem. The Resister is # RU474 $42.89. I would start with the relay. Your switch could also be bad. A simple 12V circuit tester will tell you if you are getting power to the relay terminals.

2001 kia sportage location a/c blower resistor

it is next to the blower fan up under the passengers side, I think it has 3 or 4 wires on the plug, just unscrew the 2 screws and disconnect the plug with the wires on it, is a great place to get info on kia's, hope this helps, you need to know why the resister is going bad, this means a short somewhere, if the blower shorta out then the resister will get over heated, check the switch you ajust fan speed with to see if it is working right.

No heat

Try checking for power at the blower motor. Not quite sure on yours, but a lot have the switch more or less grounding, with the power at the motor. Remove the resister assembly from the blower housing and check that the coils are not burnt. Quite often this resister needs to be replaced. Frankster016
