Good call emissionwiz. It's right behind the blower motor, under the glove box area. Remove the shroud below the glove box, 2 screws and a snap-pop fitting. Be careful of the courtesy light. Remove the blower moter and disconnect the purple/black power connector to it - - you'll need this extra room to work with. 2 more screws, same size, 6.5mm on mine, 7or 8mm on some others, that holds the blower motor resistor in place. This replacement part is less than 40 bones at most parts store. Unplug, replace, re-install, test and you're on your way with about 2 hours of slow paced effort in your own driveway. Typical cost at a garage - up to $400, what a sham.

2003 chev malibu blower fan not working in position #1,#2 ,#3.Works fine on #4,#5 Help please


its the heater fan resistor thats causing it. it has coils for different fan speeds, if a coil burns out or breaks. then you will loose that fan speed. to replace resistor, remove glove box to give ya more room so you dont have to stand on your head!! remove insulating panel under glove box. loosen and slide ecm to the side. now you can see heater blower fan, resistor is beside it, just remove wires , take out the hold down screws. and thats it!

A/C and Heater Only works on the highest speed


The blower motor resister is bad...It is very common in chevy trucks. The resister is located behind the glove box and is held in place by two screws, it will also have a wire harness attached to it. If you want to see a picture of it go to www.partsamerica.com and search for the blower motor resister.
