Heater worked on high only now not at all

My heater only worked on high, now doesnt work at all. how do i know if the blower is bad or the heater core. My truck emitted smoke (electical odor) from air vents- fan works only on high. If resistor is bad where is it located?

    Thanks Robert! I believe I have located the resistor. This is a Dodge Ram 2500 Desiel Truck, by the way, not a Maxi.

This is likely a short in the power distribution block located on your stearing column. There was a recall for this problem. Contact the dealer for information.

The resister block for the fan went. look under the dash on the duct work near the fan for an electrical fitting that goes into the duct work... should be two or three screws holding it in... remove the part and replace it...... perhaps unhook the battery first.

Repair of A/C and heater fan not working


1998 JK jeep , ive posted these tests and the free FSM book here, 100s of time.s
search much?
its the heater blower. failing.
DOES IT BLOW ON HIGH?????????? this is #1 important.
and like all such blowers, it can fail for all these ways.
even a loose wire.
1: fuse blown, (always first, for the end of time)
2: controls bad.
3: blower bad.
4: wire to any of the above, bad. (not conducting or shorted)
all cars,. some newer cars a computer runs this but is #2




the book is free.
98jx
click (spoon fed) JK 96+
click wiring
click 8w2-1 index. then see heater. blower.
blower is page 8w42 in the real fsm
what does it show.?
JB25 fuse not blown? (answring for fan dead no high)
Relay works>? tests, like all relays we test. sop
gas engine?
Fuse PDC6 not blown if diesel PDC 11
on HIGH the lever blower , on high grounds the motor blower
if the relay has power to blower 12v pin A ,dark green
then the blower motor is bad.
it only takes a $10 walfart meter to find cause.
12vdc across the blower pins on high is goal.

here is the free book, and is REAL not some PoS clone RAG.

How do I find the fuse for the heater blower


IF the heater fan is not working it is most likely the heater fan motor that has failed.

Blower motor does not work replaced the blower motor, resister, fan switch and relay still does not work


blower , heater dead.?
use a voltmeter, and find out what is wrong, in minutes.
first check voltage to the blower,
on fan high.
got voltage there. then the blower is bad.
no voltage there, then its not the blower bad. its controls or power feed.
my guess is you dont know that fuses that look good can in fact be bad.?>
old post. but here goes.
of lost, use a schematic, they tell you how the circuit works.
click here
on TJ
then heater........
FSM
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

shows 7 things can be wrong. (omg what to do, use a meter)

now click A/C heater page.
same FSM.
got 12vdc to both JB fuse 8 and PDC fuse , keyon,
both sides of fuse must be 12vdc or the fuse is BAD.
got 12vdc to blower relay pin 1, (bad relay if not, or?)
if you have 12vdc on pin1 then then check voltage at
blower B wire,
if wires is at 12vdc that means the blower switch is bad.
if the wire to the switch C3 pin C is 12vdc that means the ground to the heater control is open. correct that
if the pin C3pin C is 0v, that is good, if switch is on high
and the C1 pin A is 12v, that means the switch is bad, or wires to it cut
or the connectors to IT are corroded.

just a $10 walfart DMM meter, and bam , why is know.
no guessing or pulling out hair.
as you can see the dash heater switch grounds the blower.
if it can not ground the motor, the motor will be dead.
that is how it works.

Why wont my a/c or heater fan come on?


When the blower works only on the high setting its usually a bad blower resistor which is right near the blower motor. now you say it would always blow high regardless of the fan speed setting that would indicate probably the climate control unit or a connector problem somewhere. finally it not working at all may be the climate control unit or connection went bad even further. it might have a blown fuse or a bad blower motor in addition to the climate control unit or connector problem .check for power and ground at the blower motor. the power is supplied from fuses and may have a relay also. the ground is supplied from the climate control unit and goes through the resistor to control the fan speed. good luck

Front heater blower low speeds dont work


if you have just high speed, you need to change resister, usually in plenum case to keep it cool. If it goes again, change motor, it is drawing too much current

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....

Blower on the heater/AC not working on 1998 Escort, checked fuse under dash?


Ok, first off, check the fuses under the dash. If they're all good, does the blower work only on high speed? If yes, then you have a bad blower motor resistor, which is located under the hood, near the blower motor itself. If the motor doesnt work at all at any fan speed, make sure the wiring harness that plugs into the motor under the hood is clean and tightly installed. If it still doesnt operate, sometimes tapping on the blower motor housing will kick it on, but if that doesnt work, you may have to replace the blower motor. They are available aftermarket, and arent usually too expensive.

Works great on high only doesnt work on any other speed


If it is manual climate control.
You have a bad blower motor resistor. To replace it remove the lower dash panel cover below the glove box and it will mount in the heater housing with 2 screws. It will have a 4 wire connector with the wire colors being OG/BK,LG/WH, YE/RD, BK
If it is electronic climate control then you would have to replace the blower speed controller which is also located in the same place.

Heater control only works on high


You need a blower motor resistor,and the heater blower motor should be checked for high amp draw. check Napa for the part or go to Dodge..prpbably about 60.00 dollars.
