Question about 1995 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

Heater does not work, no blower control

1995 Pontiac Sunfire sat for a year and now the heater does not work. No blower sound. Check the control unit and I can feel the clicks from cold to hot. Check the resistor (under hood,drivers side box), checked under the dash fuses. The AC compressor is out as told to us by a repair shop. Would they have disconnected anything that would affect the heater?

    when you checked resistor did you check the voltage as well? If so what did it read if anything? From the sounds so far looks like a short in either then in dash line running to blower or a bearing has locked inside the motor itself from sitting.

Hehehe, well, you THINK you checked the resistor, but you didn't, that's the fuse or relay.

It's behind the blower motor, held into the blower motor housing by 2 5.5MM screws. You get upside down on the passenger floor and look under the dash, you'll see the motor, and an electrical connector plugged in right behind it (firewall side). I just changed mine cause after 200k miles it literally broke in half on a cold morning. They're a pain to get to, especially the back screw so good luck if you don't have a universal joint for a 1/4inch socket. Another way is to pull back the carpet, and take a razor blade to the rubber&foam floor noise dampener to cut a small hole just underneath the screw. That'll allow a small socket wrench to get the right angle to get it out. 5.5MM bolts by the way.

If it sat for a long period of time, a critter could have easily gotten into your air system, and chewed/broke it as well so might want to remove the blower motor (just a couple of screws and it slides out) to check if there's anything in there such as broken pieces or a nest. Good Luck.

1995 Yukon blower and air direction do not work

I had the same problem. Fixed it by changing the climate control knob assembly on the dash. I was able to get a brand new one still in the box on ebay. Cost $150.00 the 1995 will not interchange with any other year even though others look similar the back is different. New they wil run into the $300.00 range. You get all knobs and switches including the push buttons for the AC. These units require a gentle touch easy to break. Good luck.

Heat stopped working in 2000 pontiac sunfire

With blower on high and tempature to max heat check to see if you have good air flow in all mode selections (defrost, vent, floor etc.). If so and you still have no heat then check heater core hose going from engine to inside car to heater core with vehicle running and coolant tempature about half on guage. If both hoses are hot and coolant in radiator/overflow bottle is full then hot cold blend door is stuck in cold position. If coolant level is low you will get no heat, check coolant level first.

Heater fan will only work on high other settings won't work 2002 Pontiac Sunfire?????

In most cases the heater switch has gone bad. I would check eBay or a junkyard, either local or on-line for a used replacement. The next most probable cause would be the blower resistor. Those are usually around $40. or more (new) at a parts store. Again it is more likely the switch. You can remove the old switch and check for continuity in the non-off positions with an ohm meter. Good luck!

What will make a blower in a car only work on high 0n a 1996 sunfire

Could be two things. Heater control..or heater switch. Or the moter is not recieving the reostat info from control. Check at heater wher wires go into you change positions of switch you should see a voltage drop or increase, if u do then the moter is bad...if u do not then replace the heater control unit. :)
