SOURCE: heater in car will not work, 1990 Subaru Legacy

not sure if your controls are vacuum operated or cable, either way you need to remove the controls and inspect that hoses are not off or split, {do the **** test} and if cable is off that will be obvious what you need to do, Hope this helps, Good luck

SOURCE: 1997 Subaru legacy cooling fan

well if the fan is stiff to turn by hand I would replace the fan the motor seems like is seized up, just in case ceck the fuses and relays, check the motors voltage and test the circuts voltage, make sure the ect sensor is working fine to be on the safe side. the easy way to make sure a relay is working is trade it with another for the same fuse box. if your fan cuts on you know you have a bad relay.

How do I change the heater resistor?

Remove the glove box, you will see two connectors held in with screws with wires going to them. The lower connector is the resistor pack. Disconnect the connector, remove the screws and the resistor pack will slide out when pulled on. Then put the new resistor pack in making sure the orientation is correct, install the screws, reconnect the connector and install the glove box. Then you should be all set to go. I hope this info helps!

The heater only blows on full blast, the first three positions on the button does not work. the car is an 2006 Chevy Aveo LS hatchback

In the heater plenum behind the glove box you should find a 4 or 5 wire connector. That is called the heater resistor it has a series of different thickness springs and controls the Resistance to ground. That is what controls fan speed. First check the connector for melting if so you need to replace the connector and resistor if not remove the two screws holding the resistor in place and remove the resistor, you should find the springs are broken and replace the resistor. Note there are a couple of other things that can cause this problem but 99% of the time its this.

    How do you fix a fan sensor in a 2000 malibu

    are you talking about heating fan resistor! if so, this is where and how its replaced. it is behind glove box. remove glove box so you do not have to stand on your head, only about 7 or 8 screws. then loosen and slide ecm to one side. ( but when removing glove box, remove insulator panel under glove box first ) now you can see heater blower and resistor. it is beside the fan, remove the wires from it. take out holddown screws, then pull it out. have a good holiday!!

    2003 chev malibu blower fan not working in position #1,#2 ,#3.Works fine on #4,#5 Help please

    its the heater fan resistor thats causing it. it has coils for different fan speeds, if a coil burns out or breaks. then you will loose that fan speed. to replace resistor, remove glove box to give ya more room so you dont have to stand on your head!! remove insulating panel under glove box. loosen and slide ecm to the side. now you can see heater blower fan, resistor is beside it, just remove wires , take out the hold down screws. and thats it!

    Blower motor for interior fan only blows on high speed. All the lower settings dont work now

    The blower resistor pack needs to be replaced, it's common for the blower speed resistors to burn up and will need to be replaced. It's easier to replace with the glove box out of the way. gmparts direct has the harness and resistor as a package deal. Their part number is PK15218254.

    GM Parts list:

    Resistor - p/n 15218254 $8.59*

    Connector - p/n 15306069 $30.70*

    Wiring harness - p/n 89019124 $20 *

    You don't need to remove the glove box, just lay on the floorboard and look up under the dash. There's a 4-wire harness plugged into the resistor assembly (white plastic), in the bottom of the black heater blower shroud. Unplug the harness, remove two small screws, and pull down to remove the resistor assembly.

    Good luck and merry xmass.

    The heater in my 2000 chevy malibu is making funny noises ... speeds one and two dont work.. havent since we bought the car... for 2 years now.. but what is that sudden noise that came on yesterday... like...

    I have ran into the same problem, there may be something has got into fan cage. remove fan motor and investagate to see if it is blocked, or if fan is going bad. it is behind glove box, to remove. remove lower right dash insulator panel from under glove box. slide bcm aside for room to get at fan motor. remove 3 screws from fan motor, and remove fan after disconnecting wiring. the blower motor resistor is beside fan motor. the resistor will make ya lose 1 and 2 speeds. for it is a 5 step resistor.

    Ac blower motor

    it should be located in the heater/evap case under the dash by the glove box, usually the pigtail from the blower motor itself leads the the resistor pack.
