This could also be a loose/poor connection from the control unit. I have had a similar issue. I know it is not thermal overload because sometimes the blower just doesn't come on when you start the car. A slap to the top of the dash board over the temperatures controls has got it going again.

The blower motor have a clog vent the part that spins because it can't spin as fast cause of the clog its running hot and the motor is shutting off. You need to take the blower motor out. it's a lot of work.

Missing variable control voltage on the blower fan control module on a 2008 Buick lucerne


What are you using to test this control signal ? Were you on right wire ?
Blower Motor Control Processor The blower motor control processor is an interface between the HVAC control module and the blower motor. The blower motor speed control, battery positive voltage and ground circuits enable the control processor to operate. The HVAC control module provides a pulse width modulation (PWM) signal to the control processor in order to command the blower motor speed. The processor supplies 12 volts to the blower motor through the blower motor voltage supply circuit. The control processor uses the blower motor ground as a low side control to adjust the blower motor speed.

Your blower motor control module is probably bad , or HVAC control panel is bad , or a wiring problem !

Blower fan


I had a 1997 Lesabre and it did the same thing so my mechanic rewired from under the dash and installed a separate on - off switch fastened under the dash. Mine would shut itself off in the winter so we had no heat or defroster. The only thing you had to operate the blower manually. I don't know why but the speed control still worked.

My ford explorer 1997 V6 4.0L my truck start but unless i press the gas but as soon as i stop giving gas the truck stop i got told i need to change my alternator because i just changed the blower motor and...


doesnt make sense, you went from giving gas to keep running ,to switching blower motor,Heater blower motor i assume? to replace alternatoer? i'm lost, blower motor has nothing to do with the motor running or not. the alternator charges the battery in which you need power to run the electronics for ignition. make sure battery has full charge. now maybe your fuel shut off switch has triped.( located on passenger side firewall inside trk. remove lower side panel and you will see a black box with a button on it it should be pressed in if it is not then no fuel is getting to engine.press and attempt to start.

My 1996 blazer a/c system works fine....... But the blower every now and then 10 - 15 mins. Stops blowing for about 1 - 2 seconds and comes right back on. Resistor?


Very unlikely, most likely the motor is overheating and locking up. The resistor will either work or will not work. All it does is vary the voltage to the blower not shut it off.
