Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
The fan blower works fine. I replaced the fan selecter switch thinking it was the problem. Switch has 3 controls. One for the fan. One for heat and cold and one for routing the air. When I flip the switch so that the air should be diverted to the front windshield (defroster), it does not occur. Air continues to flow through the dash panel ducts and not the front windshield. I cannot get the air to flow through the air duct for the front windshield. What can I do to troubleshoot as to why my front windshield defroster does not function? Are there fuses that may be causing this problem? Could this be an electrical or mechanical with the air duct valve? Any help, guidance or schematics on the system would be greatly appreciated.
I just went thru this problem with my 95 1500. on mine it was the controls just like you discribe on yours one for fan one for temp and one for settings.first i thought it was the heater blend door acturator. its located on left side of heater next to the gas peddel. pulled the wire plug out and test for power theres 3 wires to this plug one white one brown and one black. the brown wire was hot with key on the black is ground and the white is the one that sends a siginal to this electric motor witch redirects air flow from floor to dash vents to defrost. i had to order the controls thru autozone 135.00 with shipping. you might get lucky and find one at a bone yard the ones in my area dident have any. i almost bet you will find thats your problem too. good luck OLD SCHOOL.
