Here is how to find out if blower motor is bad, locate blower motor under hood at firewall passenger side. Remove wire from blower. Get a length of wire long enough to reach from battery to blower. strip both ends of wire about an inch. attach one end to positive side of battery touch other end to blower motor terminal. This will spark a bit when touched. If motor doesent run and you are sure both ends are connected replace the motor about 45 bucks at auto zone.

Why is fan control stuck on 4?

A mechanical fan/blower control that's stuck on 4 is a worn/faulty switch. The blower motor fuse could be blown or the blower motor is dead. A electronic fan/blower control that's stuck on 4 with no blower could be a blown fuse in your fuse box, the blower motor is dead or the climate control reading itself could be sending a false reading or the unit tself iis faulty.

Blower motor

I'm showing a blower relay and a resistor used on models with manual ac control.
The blower motor is grounded and the fan switch provides power thru the resistor. So you have a 40amp blower fuse that handles high thru the relay, then a 30amp HVAC fuse that powers the blower thru the fan switch.
Do you not have power from the resistor to the blower motor on the purple wire ?

I had auto shop put freon in and then they said was working fine...said pay and you can go, car cooling just fine...I go out to my car and complete system is dead. The fan controls in dash now dead....

If your system its empty of free on, yow wont be able to activate your ac compressor, you might have a leak some where, this its the simple answer, there could be more problems, a bad blower motor, relays, fuses, cloged system, etc.:)

I have a Volvo 2004 S80 whose blower fan motor stays on, even after the ignition switch has been turned off. What gives? Is this a normal function or should it go off like everything else when you shut it...

Not True. I have a 2004 S60 and a std features is that the blower motor will run from 10 minutes to an hour after the engine has been turned off, This is to dry the evaporator in the dash and avoid musty odors.

If it drains your battery dead there are possible issues; 1) a weak battery that needs replacing or 2) a faulty power stage/transistor unit ont he blower fan.

The transistor unit has power and ground and a digital signal from the control unit. When the transistor sticks, the the blower will not stop when the ignition is turned off.

Heater blower stopped if i bang the bottom it starts again do i fix it

It sounds like your heater blower motor has a dead spot in it. The cure is to replace blower motor. It's common GM blower motor problem. (If you note blower switch, there's no "OFF" just low. GM blowers run constantly and develop hot/dead spots) Pretty easy replacement, sometimes getting to the blower can be tricky,

Heat/ac fan willnot turn on

If you have checked the fuses, it could be the blower motor is dead, or the switch is no good. Put a test light on the wire on the motor, and turn your switch on, if there is power, then it's probably your blower motor. If there is no power, it's probably the switch, or a wire.

2001 jeep Grand Cherokee blower motor won't work on any speed

OK, if this motor is totally dead and, it will not operate under any circumstances, this will confirm motor failure. normally, if the switch is faulty, you would get some uncontrolled action form the motor. it would blow at the highest level all the time but, if its totally dead, you will need to replace the blower motor in this case for sure.

Blower motor in gmc safari will not activate

I had this problem in a s10 blazer, it ended up being a badly corroded ground wire that actually connected to the blower at one of the mounting screws.

Heater fan not working

blower motor relay is what it sounds like. If you change fan speeds does it start to run or is it dead?If it is dead it is either blower motor relay or fan motor. it is not very often that these things go out but whenthey do it is usually without warning.
