Let the engine run, turn on heater, and get out and open and close the hood a few times, slamming it. If it starts to blow, you got a bad heater blower motor, with bad brushes. The resistor you are talking about, is about the size of a pack of cigarettes, with 2 screws, and has some white plaster looking stuff on the other side. I would replace that too if you get the blower out, because I do not think it will come out without first removing the blower. Resistor is about $20-25.00. Blowers usually go bad between 120-140k. I change the resistor every other time. The switch goes bad too, and it will only work on every other position. To change that, disconnect the battery, and take out the fuse box, and all the faceplate screws, and that will get you started. The switch from a dealer comes with the led lights and is $40. If you buy aftermarket, you may not get the lights. I have 2 1991 models, one with 360k, and one with over 500k. This has been my experience with the heating system.

The ballast resistor for the heater fan is just under and behind the fan motor and to the right facing towards the rear of the van. The resistor is on the inside but can be taken off from the outside by removing two screws and disconnecting the wiring. I took the entire fan housing off to find it but I think it might be possible to get the resistor out without removing the fan housing. To help locating the resistor, it is just above the bottom right (facing towards the back) bolt of the six bolts that hold the fan housing onto the firewall.

It should be under the dash board near the fan box attached to it . hope this helps.

The heater fan on my 1993 f-350 has become really loud. I only have hi speed which I understand may be a resistor issue but how do I remove the fan and motor assembly to inspect it?


A heater blower motor resistor is an electronic device with three or more progressive resistors that allow the heater blower motor to operate at slower speeds. The highest speed of the heater blower motor is not controlled by the resistor, so when the resistor fails, the fan will often work on the highest speed setting, but not the lower speeds.
To resistor is generally located under the dashboard and under the hood, near the blower motor . The resistor's electrical connector is disconnected, the resistor is removed and the new resistor is installed. On some vehicles it may be easily accessible, and on others it may take partial dashboard removal to replace the resistor.
Look under the hood, generally the wiring for the Blower resistor is attached to the wiring to the blower motor itself
It's inboard & below the motor, near the accumulator. You can see it standing beside the passenger fender. it's the off-white connector behind the L heater hose above the vacuum reservoir & the white WARNING sticker

I cannot find the blower motor resistor, there is no black box under the hood on the passengers side and its not under the dash? the blower was working fine then started making a lot of noise and quit, the...


Heater motor Resistors are usually built into the heater motor housing, plastic box under dash, if its a right hand drive it will be under the left hand side if its a left hand drive it will be under the right hand side. When you say the motor tested ok how did you test it, resistors are not noisy when they fail. The resistor only controls the speeds of the blower motor/fan and when they fail they usually only fail on one circuit so the blower usually still works on either slow or fast speeds.

My blower fan only wrks on high. is there 2 separate fuses?


The blower fan only working on high is caused by only one thing, that is a defective blower motor speed control resistor, the resistor is located next to the blower motor in the air ducting, replace it and the problem is solved.

When turning on the fan it only runs on high. Not position 1,2,3. This occurs on defrost or air cond. You hear no sound no other noises till high speed and it sounds normal. no unusual sounds at all. ...


A bad blower moter resistor can cause the blower to have high speed only. A bad fan switch can
also be the problem, but the resistor is the more common culprit. As I don't know the model+year
you've got, I can only give you a couple of the most common locations for the resistor block on the
town+country van style it's under the hood on the right firewall. On the cars it's on the lower right of
the heater box under the dash. And you know where the switch is. Hope this helps.

Heater on my envoy only works on 3-4 setting, could that be the switch.


Thanks for the opportunity to let me help. The blower control switch in your vehicle also uses a blower relay. This relay is generally located on the firewall on the passenger side near the heater fan. You can also look in you vehicle owners manual for the location of the blower relay, it may be also be located in the fuse and relay box under the hood. Generally speaking if the highest setting doesn't work on a GM vehicle it is a high blower Relay. This item is not expensive and can be purchased at most all you local Auto parts stores. If you have a Napa, Orielly's, or AutoZone these stores will also likely help you in the location if you are unable to locate this relay. Here is a general picturepepsiman1967.jpg The installation of this relay is either to remove from the fuse box, or if located near the heater fan housing then you will need to remove the mounting screws, remove the wiring clip, then reverse to install. I hope that this has helped you. D.R. Wilkins

Fan does not work in position 1 2 3 works great in position 4


From the scenario that you have just described; more than likely your blower motor resistor pack has failed. On the highest setting, the blower motor will have no resistance from the resistor pack allowing the motor to turn the fan at full speed; however, on the lower speeds, the different resistors are what create your different speeds by varying resistance in the electrical circuit.

My heater blower switch does not work on low or med speed what could be wrong


check the fan blower resistor, if the coil for that fan speed breaks or comes apart.you will loose that speed. the resistor should be by the blower motor or on firewall under hood.

2004 Chevrolet Silverado Heater/AC Blower on without Ignition ON


there is no relay for the heater fan it's a 15 amp fuse and is on the accessories circuit. the reostat is responsible for all 3 speeds .with the key off there should be no voltage to the blower motor whether the fans speed fan switch is on or off. the fuse will be located in the fuse paneleither on the drivers left side in the dash or underneath the dash in the fuse block. you have a short in the harness that is under the dash and most likely it's a bad plug on the harness. your going to have to do some searching but that's where the problem short is... please rate
