The blower motor resistor is likely the problem.

Why is the blower for heat and air not working

Yes there are resisters that are mounted near the blower under the dash that can burn out. They are usually hard to get to but are the most common reason the blower will not work when there is nothing else wrong. This can also cause only certain speeds to work and not others.
The only other cause could be the switch itself has overheated and melted internally but this is more common in Fords.

Ac/defrost/heater/blower fan doesn't run

Cars with "automatic" HVAC have an electronic controller for the fan. It will be located on the engine side of the duct work down stream from the blower motor.... there will probably be two connectors going to it.

Heater has stopped working

(1) possible blown fuse.
Note that fuses blow for a reason - seek out the reason, or it will blow its new fuse too.

The main fuse block is located inside the left side of the engine compartment near the battery. There is also an interior fuse panel located just above the left side kick panel.

Interior Fuse Panel
The interior fuses simply unplug from the fuse panel. Use the fuse puller tool provided with your car to remove fuses from the panel. The tool is located on the back of the interior fuse panel cover.

(2) possible blower motor dead. See maintenance manual excerpt below.

(3) possible blower motor relay faulty. Location of Blower relay:
Under hood, drivers side, front engine area,rear of headlight housing; relay mounted on drivers side of radiator shroud.

1990-92 Mazda 626 and MX-6
See Figure below

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the glove box and the underdash cover.
  3. Detach the electrical connectors from the blower unit.
  4. Remove the blower unit-to-fire wall attaching bolts and remove the blower unit assembly.
  5. Remove the blower motor fan-to-motor fastener.
  6. Remove the blower motor-to-unit attaching bolts, then remove the motor.
  7. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

What is the location number on a a/c fuse on the

If you don't have your owners manuel to find the fuse/relay location, you can go to and at no cost look at your owners manuel online.
If the fuse/relay is good the possibilities are the switch or the blower motor, with the blower motor being more likely.
If your blower works on high only (maybe not your case, just fyi), the problem is likely the blower motor resistor.
I hope this is helpful.

1992 cutlass ciera ac/heater blower motor not even trying to work. pulled all fuses and checked. straight- wired motor and it runs fine. is there a relay for this thing? and where would it be located?

I can elaborate on this also. I have a 1992 Oldsmobile Ciera with 157k miles.

The blower motor had been losing it's bearings for a while and really lost them about a week ago. I bought a new blower motor; installed it (which can be done by loosening the power steering assembly by removing a couple lower bolts underneath the power steering resevoir. One is a "double hex bolt" which a nut, then 3 ground wires, then another hex head which will remove this bolt.) Also you need to remove a stabilizer bar the is connecting between the p/s pump and the rear cylinder head. Removing these bolts should allow the power steering assembly to be moved toward the front of the car, giving enough clearance to remove the blower motor.

We installed the new blower motor, tested it, it worked, but the relay started clicking like crazy. It was the second relay from the left on my car; you can tell which one is for the blower motor by lookign at the color of the wire going into the blower motor and looking beneath the relay panel for the same colored wire (on my car it was purple).

We put it all back together, went to test it again and it wasnt working. We then went and bought a new relay, which restored the blower to working condition. 2 minutes after we left again, it blew the relay. We then exchanged the obviously faulty blower motor, and purchased a new relay, and the car was restored to 100% functional.

In this person's case, it sounds like they just need a relay, but I just wanted to elaborate to help get this information more readily available. I feel like it would have helped me if I had it before I tried this repair. (which we got down to about a 15 minute job after the 3 times we had to do it)
