Question about 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

No heater fan in all switch positions

The heater seems to work but the fan does not. It was working fine two days ago then yesterday it stopped working completely. We had some really cold starts and had to boost it four days ago. Could this have affected it?

    The fan that blows heat into the car.

    Got it. It was the motor. I gave a 'gentle' tap with a rubber mallet and it started right up. I'll have to keep an eye on it for a little while. Thanks.

Are you talking about the fan that blows heat into your car or the fan that cools your engine

2001 Jeep Wrangler heater blower stopped working


Yes I would go with the switch, BUT, does it have a resistor bank? That is, how does it reduce the speed? Many systems use resistors to lower the speed. Burnt or bad connections can cause this as well.
You can test the blower motor by connecting direct power from a source like the cigarette lighter if you are handy.
Most of the time the lower speeds konk out but the high speed continues to work this is the resistor bank that goes out.

Y reg(1982) austin mini 998cc, when the heater is switched on the fog light switch lights up but heater fan does not start, fog light doesnt work either, have tried changing the switch but no difference,...


Chances are that not all grounding wires are earthed. You may have a floating ground that is feeding back through the lights. Try grounding the heater directly to start your diagnosis.

Fan switch stopped working 1 mth after replacing the resistor


1) Check for +12v power from the fan select switch at the resistor pack - (If +12v is available there you may again have a faulty resistor pack).
2) Apply +12v directly to the fan motor to check that it runs ok.

Fan quit on 87 celebrity, heat ac, etc.. fuse ok ????


Hi
Check for bad connection at heater resistor or try tapping heater motor lightly
with ignition switch on and heater switch on. Could be heater switch connection.

If the heater fan on your car only works on "High" the problem is more than likely the resister assembly in your blower circuit or poor connections at the resister assembly. When the switch is in the "high" position the current does not flow through the resister assembly it flows directly to the coil of the blower relay. When the switch is in "low", "medium 1", or "medium 2" position the current flows through 1, 2, or all 3 of the resistors in the resistor assembly which results in the 3 different lower speeds. Check the resister assembly and replace if needed.
