most likely its the blower motor resister and is located behind the glove box. there are a few philips head screws you will need to remove inside the glove box and under the glove box to get the glove box out after that it should be a walk in the park

SOURCE: Air Conditioner blower motor resistor was replaced

Motor is also energized by a relay. check that and also check that the motor itself is good by running a hot lead right to it. I'm sure you already checked the fuse and know the switch is good?

SOURCE: blower motor fan works on high setting only

The resistors are located in the firewall just above the blower motor. they have a heavier gadge wire going to it. As for the water if it is not antifreeze then you have a leak in your cowl area by the lower windshield. I ran in to this problem on several gm cars such as yours it can be deficult to find good luck

SOURCE: 2006 Hummer H3 a/c & heater fan/blower failed

Probably too late now, I am sure you have already fixed it, but mine did this and it was an electrical part that is mounted right beside the blower fan. The part was OK, but the plug into the part was arcing and burned out the connection. A Chevy mechanic told me this has been happening to MANY Chevy products. I had to buy a new part and plug assembly with new wires, about 100 dollars, and I spliced them together. It was an Easy fix, but I shouldn't have had to do it :(

'95 Honda Accord EX-Blower works only part-time. Leave control turned to on and it may come on at some point. What could be wrong?

This sounds like a bad blower motor. You can try to hit the glove box or underneath it with the blower control on and see if it starts working. Sometimes this will jolt the electric motor in the blower and make it work again. Also inspect all the connections to the motor for burned or melted connectors.

My air condition does not work on my 2004 impala unless i kick under the glove box

Blower motor has only worked on high #4 since I had 42000 miles on the truck. If I wiggle the warning harness under the glove box, 1 & 2 will work until I hit a bump or stop suddenly. I have a harness but am fearful of putting it in due to the passenger airbags!
You have replaced the Resistor pack 3 times. On the 2nd time I even did the wiring harness. Now it is out again, plus the Flashers, Aux ports, AC will not turn on, etc. Too many electrical problems to list.

My fan for the A/C will not come on unless I hit a big bump in the road and then it runs fine? Is there a short?

This is caused by a defective blower fan motor, replace it.
Removing the Blower Motor
  • 4Remove all four of the screws from the glove box with your Philips screwdriver and set them aside.
  • 5Slowly remove the glove box from the dashboard. Make sure that no wires get caught or stuck. Place the glove box and its screws to the side of your work area so that they're out of the way.
  • 6Locate the blower motor under the dashboard. It will be shaped like a small circle, and is about as big as a saucer used to hold a teacup.
  • 7Unplug the wiring harness from the blower motor. Use the painter's tape to mark the wire, then temporarily tuck it out of the way under the dashboard.
  • 8Remove the three screws that hold the blower motor in place.
  • 9Carefully remove the old blower motor and place it to the side of your work area.
Installing the Blower Motor
  • 10Inspect the new blower motor to make sure that it isn't damaged. Check both blower motors side by side to also make sure that they are identical parts. Place the new blower motor back into the same exact position as the old one. Make sure that all three of the screw holes line up correctly with the new blower motor's screw holes.
  • 11Secure the blower motor by returning all three screws using your Philips screwdriver. Be careful not to strip the screws. One quarter turn past hand-tight will be enough to secure the blower motor.
  • 12Remove the painter's tape from the wiring harness and plug it back into the new blower motor.
  • 13Carefully slide the glove box back into position while making sure no other wires are caught or tangled, and resecure it with its screws.
  • 14Remove the black tape from the battery cable's metal terminal and reattach the cable to the car battery. Start your car and test out the new blower motor on all of its air settings to make sure it works properly.

The blower for the A/C keeps going out. The first time this happend,, i thought the AC had gone out,, but then a couple days later it started blowing again. Last week, my battery went out and so i...

Hi, an intermittent blower can be caused by either the switch or the motor itself. To find which it is, try messing with the switch to see if it will misbehave. If not, then the next time it doesn't work, try hitting the motor. Unfortunately your blower is behind the glove box, but maybe you can just pull the glove box past its stops and reach back to hit the motor with your fist. It hitting it makes it start, the motor has a dead spot on the commutator and should be replaced. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
