SOURCE: My windows and my radio stop workig at the same time!!

Sounds like you could have an issue with a connector going into your BCM or possibly your BCM itself. There is a fusible link that comes off the BCM and it goes to your radio and power windows. Off hand i believe its circuit 75 if you have a wiring diagram and possibly a dark blue wire. On the passenger side kicker panel there is your BCM you can try to wiggle the connector and see if that is it or inside the BCM the solder joints could be going and in that case your screwed.

SOURCE: blower motor

I say it might not be the blower motor but your on the rite track!good place to start sounds like a loose wire check under hood on passenger side to see if your blower resistor speed switch is plugged in or it might been in passenger feet area above toes in heater box! I think passenger feet area might be the spot your looking for! a v shape plug! i think you will find it no problem!hope this helps

Hit a bump in my 2011 Malibu and the radio fuse blew every time I replace it it instantly blows


Try unplugging the power to the radio. If it still blows fuses when you hit a bump, then the short is in the harness. If it doesn't blow fuses any more, then the problem is in the radio.
Hope this helps.

The heater fan dose not come on some time when driving hit a bump on the road it comes on .


Most likely the blower motor has excessive wear and the brushes which contact the armature are contacting more than one pole at a time, hence the intermittent failure. Hit a bump, or hit the motor, and it'll suddenly come on... Pretty typical really.

Hi Justin,
It sounds like you have an electrical problem. There may be a wire that is shorting out to the body of your car on the bumpy road. This could be very hard to find. Look at the car wiring loom, especially where it goes through the car firewall to see if there is any external damage to the loom. Also check your car earth wires to make sure they are clean and connected to the body of the car securely.
