    Went out checked fuse contacts hit the switch and away she went. Thanks a million glad it was simple if I had to pull the dash again I think I would have her crushed.



    Thanks again Terry

    I had no problem with the clips. Lost a few in the process but had no problem installing them. I would straighten them out and stagger the ones that are usable. I believe I just tapped them on with a small hammer where I had access others I just pushed on. I removed them with a screwdriver prying on the bottom of the horseshoe end. I hope this helps. Who is IPD I got mine on line from someone out east I'm from MN seemed like good quality parts and they were good to deal with. Let me know how your fix goes.

Oh no, say it isn't so. I'm in the middle of the same task on my 85 model. I just got my parts from IPD, which I hope is not the source of your parts. I would start with the fuses and check for a blown one. Make sure you check closely as they can have fine cracks that can get missed.

Any chance you have a loose wire? - with all that have to come out for the repair it's possible you lost a groundwire connection.

Write back as I will have questions of my own on how you got yours put back together.

    Glad it worked. The question I have is I don't know if I can re-use the clips that hold the fans on as I bent them a bit when I pulled them loose. Were you able to re-use yours? How did you find was the best way to get them back on? They look to fit quite tightly and I'm guessing that I will bend them again putting them on.

    I got the car put back together in one weekend and all worked well. I sprang for new clips ($14.00 EACH) and lost one. I got them on without too much fuss (one new one, one old one). My only problem is that the after market radio won't play. That was one thing I didn't mess with so I have no idea what happened.

    Thanks for your comments and good luck in the future.

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.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado - Fan not coming on. When I turn the heater/ac blower fan on, fan does not work. Prior to completely going out, fan would quit working intermittently. Is this a fuse problem? ...


Chk for power at the blower motor electrical connector. If no voltage, check the blower motor resistor, its within the blower motor vent (this controls power to the blower motor). Also, in theses vehicles water may have damaged the blower motor itself. Inspect the blower motor for proper function.

Car a/c heat blower stopped no warning


Check for a blown heater motor supply fuse,
Check operation of heater motor control relay,
Check operation of fan speed control switch,
Check heater motor speed control resistor pack (usually located in the heater ducting - in the air flow),
Check the heater motor runs if power directly applied to the motor- if not motor may be faulty.

Ac/heater blower fan does not work


Several possible causes (blown fuse, malfunction in blower speed switch, open ground in blower motor electical circuit, burned out blower motor (brushes), open circuit in blower resistor, etc. Best solution, Take the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.)

Fan quit on 87 celebrity, heat ac, etc.. fuse ok ????


Hi
Check for bad connection at heater resistor or try tapping heater motor lightly
with ignition switch on and heater switch on. Could be heater switch connection.
