Question about 2004 Pontiac Bonneville

Open Question

Blower fan doesn't work on AC, ''room temp'' or heater

I have a 2004 Bonneville SE. The cabin fan(s) worked great for 2 yrs, then started working irradically. Now, the blower fan doesn't work at all. If I turn the temp to heat and crack the window a little, warm air will circulate -- but the fan isn't moving ANY air. If I turn the AC on, select defrost and crack the window a little, cold air will circulate through the windshield vents. Otherwise, NO air moves in the car at all -- the fan doesn't come on at all. I have checked the four related fuses under the back seat. All appear to be good.

What else can I do? I'm not a mechanic, but I can do small repairs on my own -- *if* I know what needs to be replaced. THANKS!

    SOLUTION: I can't "legally" write a solution for my own problem, but...

    I took the car to a local mechanic. He tested the blower motor, etc.
    The problem turned out to be a defective blower motor resistor. I
    should have the car back this afternoon -- fixed and ready to go.

    Anyone who reads this question can consider it closed. I'm leaving it here, so others can hopefully find the fix and help themselves.

    COMMENT: The mechanic called back. The problem wasn't the blower motor
    resistor after all. It was the blower motor itself. A new one costs
    $130-$160, so I decided to do a little checking for myself last night.

    Thank the LORD, I found the problem. The wires connecting the motor
    had frayed/worn out. I took a bit of copper wire and soldered
    it to the broken ends -- reattaching them together.
    Reassembled the motor and put it back in the
    Works like a charm. Cost = $0 (Truly a blessing)

SOURCE: Top vent on the dash does not work on my o4 sunfire

it sound like its one of two things 1 it could be the function control knob on the dash is no good or that the vent/ def. door control motor is no good possibly seized up. the second thong that I would suspect is that the door itself is jammed in the on spot

SOURCE: Fuse keeps blowing on 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Your fan seems to be drawing way too much current, common with fan motors of all kinds when they are going bad. It will still blow, but hot wires and blown fuses in the normal circuit indicate you have an excessive load in the circuit. Fan motors create this condition regularly, but are often ignored since they are "still blowing."

Here's a cheap, easy way to test my theory:
Try a new fuse, the proper amperage, but leave the blower motor unplugged at the blower itself. That will tell you in a few rides if the blower was the culprit. (Which it most likely is.) I bet your #20 fuse will stop blowing and no more smoking pink wires! Hope this helps. Remember, blower motors are cheap, traffic tickets and dash fires are not. The blower motor draw is the logical thing wrong with this picture. Good LUCK! TT

Check the blower motor which is behind the right side of the dash, in the lower right side of the HVAC Assembly, above foot area of the passenger floor. The other thing to test is the blower motor resistor which should be next to the blower motor.

My heater worked a little bit today when I had the thermostat changed but notice the fan wasn't working and that's why it did not heat the cabin. Now I notice the air compressor is coming on while the

well the ac compressor will come on if you have it in defrost mode,if heater is blowing cold ,after you just had thermostat replace ,you could possibly have air in if your heater motor is not working which is called the blower motor under dash it could be the resistor that controls it also these rigs have been known for wire harness problems at heater control unit and the blower motor connector.good luck,mike

AC/Heater blower fan stops blowing air into the cabin when I accelerate.

Usually a vac leak. I would check for a leak in the HVAC control system and the line thru the firewall to the engine.

Heater blower not working

The fuse within the cabin is marked blower/fan/AC and it is easily accessible. You need to use a good lamp to check on the face plate of the fuse box on which it is inscribed.

94 Grand Am SE 3.1. The blower fan barely works. I replaced the fan motor and fan resistor. I also read a post that said take out blower and clean front of evaporator. Well, I tried this but couldn't...

If the airflow is normal sometimes then that most likely eliminates blockage in the evaporator as the culprit. If it were blocked the problem would be continuous, not intermittent.

If you're sure that all of the duct system actuators, and valves (doors) that redirect airflow to the desired vent are working correctly then I suggest that you check the controls and wiring.

The blower switch may be faulty, or have loose or damaged wiring.

Subject: 2004 isuzu ac/heater blower is not working

The resistors are in circuit only on the lower fan speed settings.
On the highest speed setting, power is switched directly to the fan motor.
Check fan power supply fuses,
Check power is available to the fan when high speed selected.
If all above OK, apply power directly to the motor to verify fan motor runs- if it doesn't the motor may need replacement/repair.

AC stops working when cabin temp reaches 109-110

indicates gas pressure and condenser cooling problems
check the condenser fan is working properly and have the gas pressures checked by gauges
check that the evaporator fins are clean and not blocked as ice build up will cause the same indications
