Question about 2002 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

Blower Getting power to the plug and I am thinking bad news, motor is gone ?? Do you think it is necessary to have someone try put outside power source to motor to see if it works or should I just buy a new blower fan ? Also, another question. I have been having a problem putting fuel in the truck. It will only take fuel really slow causing it to splash back no matter how far back I keep the nozzle. Any suggestions ? And once again, thanks for your help.

You can certainly apply 12V to the blower motor right at the plug. It's not going to hurt anything. It should come on full blast. If it doesn't, than it gone for sure. As far as putting gas in the truck, is your check engine light "ON"? If so, it may be for the vent control valve beeing stuck shut, not allowing the fuel vapors go by thus resulting in the gas pump shutting off. Let me know what you find.

2005 Nissan Altima blower motor does not work

Check the direct connection to the blower motor. Check the fuse. Sometimes you can try to put it on high and try hitting the blower motor to see if turns on. It may also be the blower switch or the blower itself.

I have a 2003 buick Regal and the blower motor went out. I have power in the fuse box and power out of the resister/module and power going into the blower motor....does this mean the motor is bad, or...

test the ground and if you have power and ground to the motor take a 3057 bulb bend the wires (there are 4 wires on the bulb 2 wires on front and 2 on the back take one wire off the back and one on the front bend them down and twist together and then do on the other side of bulb) unplug motor and put bulb in to wire plug that goes int motor turn blower to high and if bulb is bright the motor is bad if it is dim you have high resistance in the wiring. or plug motor in turn it on high and tap motor with hammer see if it starts to blow it is a little unorthodox but it works better than you think.

My blower Motor is not working on my 1996 Mercury Mystique. I checked all the fuses, all the fuses work just fine. I then checked the voltage that was getting to the blower motor, and it read 12v. I then...

hello, try this..hook 12 volts directly to the blower motor terminals, it should spin! Check for 12 v at the plug that goes into the blower motor again. if good.. Hook a light tester to 12v supply and then check the ground wire in the plug that goes to the blower motor. if it doesn't light up you have a bad ground connection.

The fan does not blow. The switch turns, AC button lights like it is getting power but there is no air moving. Can hold hand over the vent and feel cool/hot air but there is nothing behind it moving it. ...

fuse located lower leftside of dash, but i think you might have a bad blower motor, turn it no and try tapping on it if it starts then bad blower it is or test it for power and ground if it has power and ground then its the blower. good luck.

Vwmike2001 thanks but when we looked in box for fuses/relay there was 3 fans we took one at a time and the blower stays on i replaced a module plugs in twice the people at parts told me that i have replace...

If the module is working when you first put it in and then the blower goes back to blowing continuous,then the problem is the module.The module has to be cooled by air from blower.If It can not be properly cooled it will blow.Now if it is for sure getting cool,replace blower motor,It is drawing to many amps and loading up the module(over heating).Also if you are purchasing a cheaper line of the module,this could also contribute to the module failing.But I do think that the module is getting to hot and burning out from a bad blower motor or no air movement around the module heat sink.You can reply back to me if clarity is necessary,I will try and help you if I can.>>>

That's why I said to bench test the motor/put 12V to it to see if it comes on, BUT you told me that you have power at the connector, which should turn the motor on, but you have only 2.4 V going in. Since you have the AUTO A/C I would look into the blower motor AMPLIFIER mounted behind the glove box on the side of the air box. Its attached with 2 screws. I would look at that next. Your AUTO A/C setup has a "blower motor resistor" and an "amplifier". Check the AMPLIFIER next. Usually when the RESISTOR goes bad, the blower will only work on speed #4/HIGH, but your doesnt work at all. I would look into the AMP assembly. I don't think that the piece is that expensive. $100??? Good luck and let me know what you find.

Yes, its safe to say, that your blower motor is NG if you are getting power to the connector.
