I have put up with the same problem until I found a solution today. For me, I believe it was a two part solution:

First, there is a 30 amp fuse (?) located in the passenger side fuse box (next to the door). I believe the fuse was labeled something similar to "HVAC Blower High". Looking at the box, it was the fuse in the very bottom-left position. This is not what I would call a bus fuse so I couldn't tell by looking at it that the fuse was bad. I first tried switching this fuse for the electronic window fuse. I was able to lower the driver's side window so I thought the fuse was good. However, it was not until after I completed step two (below) that I realized that I could not lower the passenger side window from the driver side control. I switched the two fuses back and the window controls worked fine. So, I replaced the suspect fuse and the problem was resolved.

Second, I read online this morning that a bad blower resistor could cause this problem. I also read that the part was fairly easy to replace on this model so I thought it was worth a try. I bought a replacement at my local dealer for $49. To install, I removed the bottom panel from the passenger side (right under the glove box) by pulling down on the three panel "screws". With the panel down, the heater blower was exposed. I found the resistor located just behind the blower. I unplugged the resistor from the blower as well as the wire harness located immediatly on the resistor. I then removed the resistor by removing the three (3) 5/16" bolts. The entire operation took about 20 minutes from open to close. ....the majority of that time was spent trying to get my big fingers around the bolts.

All 5 positions now work. ....Now if I could just resolve the problem with the windows frosting.

This is often an indication that the blower motor resistor has gone bad. The good news is that its relatively cheap to replace, the bad news is depending on where your blower motor is, they can be challenge to get to and replace.

My 1998 gmc jimmy slt has a heating problem. The heater wont turn off. As long as the car is on the heater is on full blast. The fans work and everything knob wise works but the heater is always on.


The air temperature valve electronic actuator positions the temperature door according to the temperature setting of the temperature control on the temperature control knob. For the full COLD temperature setting, the temperature control returns approximately 12 volts to the air temperature valve electric actuator. When the temperature setting is changed to full HOT, the temperature door is moved to the warm position and the output drops to about 0 volts. For a temperature setting in the mid range, the temperature door is positioned according to the voltage supplied through the temperature control switch.

Need to know how many sensor. is on my transmission.. 2003 Pontiac Montana v 6 .. can you show me picture where transmission control solenoid goes?


There are 12 common sensors and 10 internal sensors. The most common that often fail (MAP), (TPS), (CAM), (IGN), (CRANK) MAP is your mass air flow which is located at the beginning of your air intake, TPS is the throttle body position sensor, the CAM is the cam shaft position sensor (transmission), IGN ignition position sensor and the CRANK sensor is located near the bottom driver side front

Honda Accord 2002 heater blower control works only in the high position. The 1, 2, and 3 positions do not work but the high (4) does.


The heater blower is normally controlled by voltage sent to the blower via a resistor network.
In this case it seems that this unit also called the fan resistor is defective.
I assume that 4 is the position where the blower is running HIGH and in this position the blower is powered directly without using resistor for lowering the speed of the blower. In step 1 - 3 the blower is powered via the mentioned resistor network.

In my opinion the resistor network is defective.
Replace it !!!!.

Looking for location of heater sensor upstream before or after coverter


upstream sensors will be on the exhaust just after it exits the engine, most likely right on the manifold. and all downstream will be after the catylic converter on the exhaust pipe. its the heated type and will have a 4 position wire harness, and a 12" lead comming off it.

I own a 2006 Pontiac Montana SV6, there is very little heat coming from the heater, a/c working fine, fan blowing full capacity. Could it be the thermostat.


probably the blend door not opening fully. Do you hear a clicking under the dash by passenger's feet? If not, try calibrating the system:
  1. Place the ignition switch to the OFF position.
  2. With the Mode knob in the PANEL position, press and hold the AC button for 5 seconds.
  3. Rotate the Mode knob fully counterclockwise.
  4. Rotate the Mode knob fully clockwise.
  5. Rotate the Mode knob fully counterclockwise.
  6. Release the AC button.
  7. Wait 40 seconds for the HVAC control module to self-calibrate.
  8. Start the vehicle.
If this doesn't work, your actuator may have failed. Look under the dash to see if any of the actuators on the heater box are trying to turn when you change the temperature setting. Unfortunately, I cannot find aftermarket parts for your heater, so if the door isn't working you may need to go to the pontiac dealer. Let me know if you have questions.

My '99 Pontiac Montana right sliding door and front door do not open. The windows and clock/sometimes CD player don't work nor does the A/C. Is there a fix? The fuses?


2 common possibilities. The plungers and plunger pads on the door and the door jam are corroded. Clean those off with a fine sandpaper, then put a dab of silicone grease on them. Then do the re-set procedure exactly as the steps indicate. If that does not help, then a possible door position sensor or the door control module is bad. A diagnostic using the on/off switch and the open/close switchon the system may indicate a code for door position problem. The door position sensor is part of the door motor/actuator assembly. The control module can be replaced separately. Info from here.

2005 Neon engine light came on and stays on. Car drives okay. Has around 34,000 miles. No other problems


Take it to Autozone or Advanced auto and get an engine diagnostic and ask them to printout the results. Most times it's a sensor.
