I just fixed the same problem. The fan switch can be bad but probably not. You can test this by tapping the switch in different speed settings and if this makes the blower come on then that was your problem. Also the blower/fan relay switch might be loose or going bad. This is most likely under your hood. My Problem was the blower connection behind the glove box had came loose a little. Blower would work sometimes and if I hit a small bump it would cut off then on sometimes or just stay off. If your blower works at all speeds when it is working it probably is not bad. I removed my glove box about 6 screws and traced the wires to the blower motor and this fixed the problem. GOOD LUCK.

Heater blower does not work on 1992 Buick Park Avenue

Hit the blower motor with a hammer handle and see if it starts, if it does replace the blower motor, if it doesn't replace the blower motor resistor located next to the blower motor in the air ducting with the connector sticking out of the air ducting

Have a 2003 Olds Bravada, my AC fan keeps running after I turn off car and get out, why?

This can be caused by a defective blower motor speed control resistor, that is the common issue with this problem in GM cars and trucks. The blower resistor is located next to the blower motor and the connector sticks out of the air ducting, it is held in place by 2 screws.

My 98 olds bravada started blowing hot air even when the air and heat is turned off heat and air both dont work now ..... any solutions?

Either the entire control panel has gone out or the door actuator motor has stuck or stopped working - real pain to change - behind the glovebox - has screws on top of actuator that are almost impossible without a swivel 1/4 wrench

My 98 tahoe's heater only works occasionally, it used to be that it only worked on high and low and sometimes i would have to hit the dashboard to make it start blowing. recently it stopped working all...

try taping on the blower motor with a mallet. if it starts when u tap it, its probably the blower motor itself. if it doesnt it is most likely the blower motor resistor. let me know which one you need to find

I turn the the fan on for the heating but the fan

Sounds like a seized up (bad bearings) blower motor. It may not pull enough current to blow the fuse at the lower fan settings but does at the high one. Something could also be jamming the blower fan in its air duct.

Most blower motors can be accessed under the hood. Replace the fuse then put the blower switch on one of the lower settings (don't blow the fuse). Get yourself a good sized screwdriver and hit the back of the blower motor with the screwdriver handle a couple of times.

Sometimes (unless the blower motor has totally seized up) you can get it to spin and this will tell you for sure you need a new blower. Other than that, you can get a spare blower motor, remove the connection wires from the old motor and hook them up to the new one to test before you go to the trouble of replacing the blower.

Hope this helps you out... -Dan

I would replace the blower motor, this sounds like a motor brush problem inside the motor itself.
