Have you confirmed there are no blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers?

If you hit the blower box a few times does the motor come on? (If yes, there's a bad connection somewhere).

Have you ruled out a defective head unit?

Have you ruled a defective ballast resistor or resistor block?

2000 buick regal blows high fan fuse as soon as it is put in with car offf


I would disconnect your blower motor resistor then try fuse again, if it does'nt blow then it is either blower motor or resistor,these resistors are common for going bad/and or blower motor. Good luck let me know if you need more info or if this didn't fix it, I will research it more for you

1992 gmc pickup keeps blowing heater fuses I replaced the blow motor and it keeps blowing


Have you replaced the blower resistor . some times they can cause the fuse to blow . You may need a muiltmeter to test the current draw on the blower motor circuit. the draw should be less then half of the rated fuse .( 20 amp fues draw is less then 10 amps) You did not say but does the blower work on high only or the lower speeds with out blowing the fuse ? if it does work on low or high with out blowing the fuse i would replace the blower resistor

Blower on heater works sometimes, sometimes it doesnt. Can be driving down the road and it suddenly starts blowing. What could be the problem? A short in the wiring? Blower motor going out? Blower level...


Sounds like the blower resistor. It will either be located in the engine compartment outside the motor or inside the vehicle inside the blower motor cover. It could also as well be selector switch

My 02 Stratus heater only works on high. Any idea


Your blower resistor is bad. It controls the mutiple speeds to allow you to go from low/med/high. When it goes bad you get one speed or no speeds....It's about $20-$50 at any local auto parts store. It mounted directly to the speed switch or on the heater plenum unit on the passenger side behind the glove box....

Replacing heater blower motor


this is not a problem with thw switch or motor. There is a resistor that is mounted inside the dash on the pasenger side that controls the speed of the blwer..these have a tendency to burn up after 10 years or so... replace the resistor, and you will be fine!  http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Toyota-Truck-A-C-Heater-Fan-Resistor_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ33548QQihZ016QQitemZ260344846266QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW#ht_500wt_1230
