1 Answer

I am only getting 5 volts of electric to the blower motor,blower switch and blower resistor. Can't figure out the problem.

Blower motor wont work. Changed resistor and checked blower motor. Only getting 5 volts of power to the switch,resistor and blower motor. Any one have any ideal.

    I have switched the relay out with 2 different ones and that didn't help any.

    Is the blower motor working , If you hook up jumper wires to it ,From a 12 volt source, Itrink buy your details that you did test it? Buit could not qute catch all that you did do, If you done that allready ,I am realy thinking the switch is the problem,

    Fan motor will run with 12 volts hooked to it. I checked the switch wires and I only have 5 volts also checked it at the resistor and blower motor and they also have only 5 volts. The switch will turn the AC compressor on and off when you turn it so that makes me think it is making connections. Could I be loosing the ground somewhere.

You can replace the relay and see if it works,if not Autozone will refund the money back.Here's a link to relay.

    Is fuse in fuse box tight,look for burnt marks,can cause fuse not to be secure,causing short.

SOURCE: 2000 monte carlo blower motor works 1 thru 4 5 not working

I had similar problem. There is a small electrical card that is behind the blower motor up into the unit. it is the part that the wires plug into. It has traces on the card that, when you select a speed, will allow current to flow to the motor. The trace that was for the #5 setting had opened up. I had to solder a wire across the trace. got my #5 back. This resistor card shoud be availble at GM dealers if you do not have the know how to fix it.

SOURCE: Where is the blower motor resistor on a 2003 Chevy Malibu

Remove the shroud below glove box, 2 screws and a snap-pop fitting. Be careful of the courtesy light. Remove the blower moter and disconnect the purple/black power connector to it - - you'll need this extra room to work with. 2 more screws, same size, 6.5mm on mine, 7or 8mm on some others, that holds the blower motor resistor in place. This replacement part is less than 40 bones at most parts store. Unplug, replace, re-install, test and you're on your way with about 2 hours of slow paced effort in your own driveway. Typical cost at a garage - up to $400, what a sham.

SOURCE: 2005 Chevy Surban blower motor resistor

mine did the same thing. It was the gears breaking off in the resistor. However, the wiring harness and resistor melted inside of the dashboard AND DID NOT trigger the fuse... causing a safety issue. This was this past month. I notified GM and the National Highway Traffic Saftely Administration hotline located in the owners manual. They are not tracking this problem to see about safety recall. If you have this issue, you need to ntify them as well at their toll free number

Check the connector to the control head that you changed to see if the terminals in the connector are burned,also,I believe the blower has a module ,witch the resister is built into,has it not?

Well you can unplug it's connector and give it 12 volts and ground from the battery to see what it's doing.

The front heater\ac wont blow out air. the blower motor and resistor has been replaced, what could the problem be


Check out the blower chamber, sometimes pens or debris can fall into vents that run into the blower chamber. If all clear see if you are getting 12 volts to blower. Test the motor also. If the items you have replaced is good and your motor is good and the blower fuse is showing 12 volts on both sides of fuse the only thing left is the head unit blower switch. You can test the the switch for continuity per position to find out if the switch is the problem. Always eliminate guessing to not have to spend excess money. You could have tested the resistance on the blower resistor too.

Heater switch replacment


Hello! it's my job to make things as easy for the customer as possible...Therefore I must ask why you want to replace the heater switch? Is it because you have lost one or two of the switch speeds? Your vehicle is noted for loss of the Blower Motor Resistor...
Changing the Heater switch means removal of the Climate Control Assembly which is not the easiest of jobs...I've included the process...But are you sure the blower resistor is OK? If you have lost 1,2, or all blower motor speeds it's more than likely the Resistor pack. And a lot easier to change...

Question:If the 30 A. fuse on a 2002 focus dash blower motor is good,and the thermal resistor is replaced, then it must be a faulty speed switch?


Don't know where you got your info . The heater blower motor electrical B+ power comes from Fuse F 64 a 40 amp fuse . This goes right to the blower motor on the green with orange stripe wire , The black with red stripe wire goes to the switch for high speed . There is Splice 24 that ties into the black with red stripe wire. The splice 24 turns into a black with orange stripe wire . An this wire goes to the blower motor resistor . All the switch does is route the B+ voltage through the different resistors to ground .

Thermal resistor "usually" stops working is because of faulty fan speed switch ???? Totally not true , resistor assemblies fail because of the heat associated with dropping voltage across the resistors , That is why they put the resistor assembly in the air box . Air blows over to cool the resistors . The switch is nothing more then a way to direct different speeds to ground .

Rather then listening to other people ,why not learn the right way to test electrical circuits .

My blower only works 1 through 4 and will not work on the highest position number 5


{: ) Check out the J-case fuse (square) labeled BLWR 40amps at the underhood fuseblock. This fuse is the source of power to the blower motor when position 5(max speed) is selected. If this fuse is tested to be okay, you need to access for the blower resistor connectors. Turn ignition on, and set blower to max speed (#5). Probe on the blower resistor terminal (orange wire) and you should get 12volts, also probe the terminal (red wire) which came from the 40amp fuse. 12v should be present on these two terminals at the blower resistor when at max blower speed. Particularly on the orange wire, if you don't get 12volts when at #5 position, it 's probable that the blower speed control switch is faulty. But if you did got 12volts during the procedure, then you should replace the blower motor resistor. Goodluck.

I have 2002 infinity I35 and the blower motor stop working ,I took out the blower motor to make sure was good. YES the blower motor still working .the only think I really don't know how to check is Blower...


WELL YOU HAVE TO USE A VOLT METER CONNECT ONE VOLT METER WIRES TO GOOD GROUND AND THE OTHER VOLT METER WIRES GOES TO EACH SWITCH SPEED.IF VOLT METER GET VOLTAGE A 1 OR 2 CONTROL SPEED RESISTOR BAD.IF RESISTOR BAD YOU WILL GET 1 OR 2 BLOWER MOTOR SPEEDS.IF BLOWER MOTOR WORKING.CHECK THE AC AND HEATER CONTROL SWITCH FUSE OR CHECK BLOWER MOTOR FUSE AND RELAY.IF ALL GOOD SO FAR CONTROL SWITCH ITSELF COULD BE FAULTY.

2005 gmc sierra blower wont turn on


Check the fuse first thing. If the fuse it good then either the blower motor speed control switch, blower motor resistor pack, or the blower motor itself is bad. Normally the speed control switch rarely goes bad. If some of the speeds did not work prior to total failure then the resistor pack is bad. If that is not the case then apply 12 volts directly to the blower motor to see if it is good. If it runs suspect the resistor pack as the culprit.
