Question about 2002 Chevrolet Malibu
The blower motor, as you have probably seen, is under the dash on the passengers side. While in Park with the parking brake applied:
Turn the Key On with fan blower set to High. Locate the blower motor and wiggle the electrical connector. If this brings the blower motor to life, a new blower motor is needed. This, if applicable, is a common failure that matches your symptoms. The new blower is simple to replace, although it is never fun working under the dash.
If you have a 12 volt test light or DVOM (multimeter) you can check for power at the electrical connector. You should have battery voltage (12+) with the blower set on high. Always use a known good ground when testing for power. If you have power (key on, set to high) and no blower operation the blower motor needs replacing.
The resistor you replaced is a very common failure on these.
Give me an update.
