Question about 2003 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

After shutting off the engine, something whines loudly.

The noise is louder inside the car, and seems to be coming from behind the firewall, which leads me to think the blower fan is stuck, or something with the A/C system. The noise seems to be coming from the passenger side.

    The problem doesn't stop when the car is shut off.

    Yup, sure sounds like blower may be the problem but not very often does it run on after vehicle is shut off completely, and the blower motor is normally on passenger side. What type of vehicle is it?

    Perhaps a little debris in your blower fan? Does it stop when blower is off?

Ac makes whining noise on a 2004 Pontiac grand prix


Is the whining noise coming from the engine compartment where the compressor is located or is the noise coming from inside the car? If the noise if coming from inside the car it could be your blower. When a blower wears down the bushing is the first thing to wear down and it begins to have play. That makes the blower/fan vibrate making a loud whining noise. Replacing the blower could solve that whining noise.
If the noise if coming from the AC compressor, it also could be a bad bearing within the compressor.

How do I fix the blower fan in my Ford F-150? It's STUCK on HIGH!


the problem is not the fan (blower motor) , it is the resistor in the blower motor hosing under the hood...
open the hood and look over by the passangers side firewall to locate the blower plenum (housing).
There is a plug that has 4 wires and it is plugged dirrectly to the housing.behind that is the resistor configuration that runs the fan at the different speeds ( more resistance = slower fan speed).
It is this part you need to replace.
