Front blower motor does not run on 2005 tahoe.

40 amp underhood fuse was replaced but no current flows across it. Is it the motor, resistor or something else?

If your not getting power to the blower and the fuse is good then it is the resister. Common problem on these, but lots of times the motor is going bad and thats what ruins the resister.

Does anyone have any suggestions regarding how to diagnose no power to front blower motor in a 2006 Ford Freestar mini van.


You also have the front blower motor speed controller and the electronic automatic temperature control (EATC) module to check.

How to trouble shoot front blower


There are several reasons for a blower to stop working. Does it work on ANY speed? Does the AC compressor lamp or any of the vent control LEDs still work when using the AC controls? Do ANY of the speed for the blower work or are they all dead?

1st, you wanna check your fuses. There will be fuses in the underhood fusebox marked blower or heater fan, check and repalce as necessary. Also, if the earlier check for working LED bulbs on the AC control panel showed some or all lights dont ever turn on when engine is running, you may have problems with the control system.
if the fuses are good, now you need to test parts. there is a blower motor speed control aka blower resistor that frequently fails on most cars. It is the part that carries the current for all speeds of the blower and regulates speed when commanded. It has to absorb the excess energy to lower speeds and it tends to get very hot and burn out as a result. If it has failed, there will be power IN on one of its wires, and no power OUT on any others. If you have no multimeter or testlight to check things like this, Id recommend taking it to a certified mechanic.
If the control lamps all work that means controls have power, if the blower resistor has no power, fuses or blower relay are the most likely cause. if the blower resistor has power but still no fan, most likely your fan has failed. as a general rule, I replace fans and blower resistors as pairs. fans tend to last longer, but they also get more demanding with age (kinda like people) and that extra demand will burn out the newer resistor much faster than when the fan was newer. it can be alot of time and money to change a blower TWICE, so to be sure it wont fail again, test current, or simply replace the blower fan if it is determined a resistor has failed. (a good fan in theory shouldnt draw enough amperage to burn out a good resistor, EVER, so if the resistor burns, the fan is typically drawing too much power, and even though it works "fine", it will burn the next resistor in a short time as well.).

Blower only works on speeds 3,4,5


there is a high blower fuse, check that first. fuse box under the hood marked HI BLO MOT 30 amps. if thats ok, maybe the blower relay is bad. marked HVAC BLOWER .....the lower sppeds use one fuse, hi speed uses another.

I replaced the resistor box and 2 green and one blue wire. all i got was a spark no blower and a blown 40 amp fuse help 2000 jeep grand cherokee limited


Either something was mis-wired, or you have a shorted blower motor or a cut in the wire insulation that is shorting to ground. I'm amazed that a 40 Amp fuse is used for the blower motor - that is a lot of current for a motor that size. (13.6 Volts times 40 Amps is 544 Watts for a fan?! There must be some other stuff on that circuit or somebody put in an oversized fuse.)

Have you had the blower motor switch replaced? I had a Chevy Silverado and the low worked but no other settings. It is a pretty quick fix and reasonably cheap.

Your Blow Motor Resistor Is the problem
replace the blower motor resistor & the resistor module connector (Pig tail).
Call dealership and you can get the part give them the TSB Number

Should take about 30minute to replace not to hard.

Where is the front fan resistor unit?


Look under the van,on the drivers side near the radiator,it should be in that area.Follow the wires from the fans,they should go right to the module.This is for the cooling fans for the radiator.For the resister module for the blower motor look near the blower motor in the blower box.It is near the blower fan.It can be under hood,but it will be mounted with two screws.Remove the two screws,but you need to remove the wire plug in first.Pull it out .It goes inside of the blower box.If you replace this module,replace the blower motor also,because the blower motor is what causes the resistor to burn out.Did you check voltage at fuse with key on?If you did not check the fuse with key on,you got a false reading.If you checked the fuse with key on,look for a bad ignition switch,or a fusible link burned into coming off a pos. terminal post where the battery cable goes to under the battery.If the blower will not work at all even on high blower,the resister most likely not the resistor.The blower motor relay is most likely the problem.
