Question about 1995 Pontiac Sunfire
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?
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.
