Chech the blower motor to see if its working. Unplug the wire harnes and run a jumper wire to the blower motor. you will need two wires, one hot, one negitave. Put the + on on termal and the - on the other termal. make sure the wires do not touch each other and see if the fan motor will turn. If not, the motor is bad and has to be replaced.

How do i check to see if the fuse went out for my heat


Do you want to know why the blower doesn't work? If so, start at the underhood junction block and check the 30A BLO MOT maxi fuse which feeds power to the blower control module. Next, at the instrument panel junction block, check the 10A CSTR/SBM fuse and the 10A HVAC fuse. Both of these supply power to the heater and A/C programmer and the HVAC fuse also supplies power to the heater & A/C control. If all fuses are OK and everything is operating except the blower motor, check the voltage across its BLK and RD leads. The blower motor may be no good

Heater does not work


Check heater fuse.
If fuse good - could be a failure of the blower fan motor or blower control switch.
If fuse bad - bad blower fan motor could have blown the fuse.
DO: check fuse, then blower motor.
Pricing: new blower motor: Duralast PM270 $43.99
new heater control switch: Duralast SW229 $46.99 (without
A/C).
I'd expect your blower resistor to be good - when they fail, the blower only will work on HIGH setting.

No heat or air in my oldsmobile intrigue


Well, you're not going to get a lot of heat if the blower is not working. Check all the blower speeds to see if any work. Check the fuse for the heater blower. Next trace through the heater blower switch to see if you get power to the blower.
Most likely problems (after fuse) are bad blower motor and/or heater resistors.

1997 Dodge ram 2500 deisel. Blower fan wont come on. replaced climate control module and fuse is ok. Is there an inline fuse or relay I'm missing?


if the fuse is ok your next step is to see if you have power at the heater fan switch,if you do then the next thing is the heater blower motor resister it is under the heater assembly,that is what gives you different speeds,
the last is test for power at blower motor to see if it is faulty

Blower motor does not work


I had the same problem, replace, replace, replace. Check, check and recheck. What I found was the blower motor resistor, located in the blower squirrel cage area, two prongs and a curly wire, was bad. Took the new one back, (it ohmed out okay, continuity ok, all ok!) replaced it with another, and Bingo, problem solved. Frustrating to say the least. After two relays and a blower switch, and test, test and retest. It was a faulty resistor. Made in Mexico. And no guarentee, even though new, it works. Trial and error. Even the dealer parts are Honcho en Mexico. Thanks NAFTA. You gonna make us all welfare babies.

2003 Mitsubishi Galant Heater not working


There is an electric motor that turns heater core on and off. It's located under the dash to the left of the glove box. Some disassembly required. The part will cost about $120 to $180. part number is #MR958603.

2005 Pontiac Gran Prix blower does not work. I check the fuse at HVAC fuse at the end of the dashboard and it is OK. The switch itself activates the AC light on and off when I turn it...


Check the blower motor which is behind the right side of the dash, in the lower right side of the HVAC Assembly, above foot area of the passenger floor. The other thing to test is the blower motor resistor which should be next to the blower motor.

The heater/defroster/ac control switch only works in the high position.


You probably have a bad blower resistor. it's located next to the blower motor under the dash.
