Heater keeps blowing a fuse

The heater works fine, except when I switch the control dial round to the windscreen. Each time I do this it blows the fuse.

Is this a common problem and does anyone know what the answer is?

Check to see if the motor for the air distribution door to the windshield is shorted.

Heat does not blow onto windscreen but blows through other vents - whats wrong


What make an model an year vehicle do you have ? The air blows out of the floor vents an center vents but not defrost ? Possible mode actuator , stuck mode door ! There is a door inside the heater / A/C assembly that directs the air to the desired position . These doors can be moved by a vacuum operated actuator or an electric motor . Sometimes thing's put on the dash end up inside the heater box , fall through defroster vent ! Pens , pencils etc.. Depends on the make vehicle an system , manual , or automatic climate control . Some of the newer vehicles the HVAC system as it is called , the control panel is a electronic control module an can store DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes !

Alero fuse 46 keeps blowing


I have seen this before were the 46 fuse keeps blowing and it is usually after somone has had the radio and heater control out. There should be 2 wire harnesses that plug into the back of the heater control but the 1 will fit the extra plug on the back of the radio and the customer had the heater harness pluged into the radio. Radio worked fine but the rear defogger and a few other heater controls did not and it would blow the 46 fuse as soon as the key is turned on,.

Air condition


Check the following fuses:
10 amp GAUGE under the dash, and the 40 amp HEATER under the hood.
If both fuses are good, I suspect that you may either have a bad fan switch or a bad heater fan motor. The switches are rare to fail, I would suspect the heater motor first. Please try this: Turn the key on; turn the fan switch to high. Look under & behind the glovebox, for the bottom of the heater fan motor. Round thing with 3 screws holding it to the heater box. Using a small hammer, or something that you can tap with, tap on the bottom of the heater fan motor. You just may jar the motor enough to make it run. If it comes back on, you may need to replace it at some point in the near future. Worked for me quite a few times. Try that, repost to me what happens. Hope this helps.
