    there is only one fuse for the fan that I know of. Have the resistor block checked, might be a bad resistor.

I had the same problem twice. The dealer said it was a recall for a bad fan control switch. It's located under the glovebox near the center of the dash and held in by two screws. Last time i had to replace the part was about 34.00 and did it myself. The cover under the glovebox pops out and you can see the part. They had problems with them burning out and only work on high after that happens.

    It's not the fan I mind, it's blasting heat at us.

Have a 2009 Nissan Quest I can't turn the heat off. Just stays on a high level of blowing out heat .


If you have a fan that has different speed settings (1234, or low med high etc) and the only one that works is high - then the blower resistor pack has failed. If you have a climate control unit (where you just pick a temp you want) then the fan is controlled by the heating system and it sets fan speed. If you have climate control style try lowering the temp to a lower setting (current temp in vehicle) and see if fan slows down. If not then climate control unit or fan resistor bad. If dial type and you get nothing on lower settings (only high works like mentioned above) you need to change blower resistor. It is located under dash near the fan itself. Look for small unit bolted in duct near fan with wire plug going to it.

My 2003 honda odyssey will only have heat when the fan is on high. The climate control doesn't work. How do I fix this?


you meant the fan is dead , except on high right.
yes, easy
bad heater resistor block bolted to heater box (fan box)
yes, easy fix. with FSM 10x. easy
or see alldata.com

find the heater box, find a 1 inch cube stuck in a hole in box
with wires attached, bingo 5+ wire? not 2,

Why wont my a/c or heater fan come on?


When the blower works only on the high setting its usually a bad blower resistor which is right near the blower motor. now you say it would always blow high regardless of the fan speed setting that would indicate probably the climate control unit or a connector problem somewhere. finally it not working at all may be the climate control unit or connection went bad even further. it might have a blown fuse or a bad blower motor in addition to the climate control unit or connector problem .check for power and ground at the blower motor. the power is supplied from fuses and may have a relay also. the ground is supplied from the climate control unit and goes through the resistor to control the fan speed. good luck

My bmw 318 is blower fan not working


Blown Fuse
  • Usually the first thing to inspect when the blower fan stops working is the fuses to see if any are blown. Locate the 10A cluster fuse or the 25A HVAC fuse in your car manual, and examine them to determine if they need replacing. The car owner's manual will tell you where to find the fuses that are connected to the heat and/or air conditioning. On the interior fuse panel of the car, a 30 amp fuse is labeled "Heater" or "HVAC."

Bad Blower MotorIf the fan only works on setting number 3 or 4, or just on the highest setting, it is most likely that your blower motor is failing and is about to die. Use a voltmeter to test the amount of voltage at the blower motor connector with your ignition on and AC running. If it reads 12V, the motor needs replacing.Automatic Climate Control SystemAnother thing that causes the blower fan to malfunction is the Automatic Climate Control System (ACCS). If the ACCS's settings are off, it may cause the fan to stop working. If it is the climate control on the car, typically it is a bad thermostat or electrical circuit that is the culprit.
hope this helps, James Booth

Blower fan low speeds don't work. Can only get the fan to work on position 3 which is too high. What might have happened such that positions 1, and 2 don't work?


it is the blower motor resistor. I do not know off of the top of my head if it is part of the climate control unit or external for your particular vehicle. However the symptoms match.

My fan for the Ac and heater will not work. iam trying to replace the blower resister


the blower resistor is in the plenum... above the heater core.
If the blower motor does not work at all ... you may have a bad climate control switch.... or blown fuse even... as the resistor is a two stage coil... Low speed and medium speed... no resistor on High and would normally not go at the same time....

Heat-a/c blower motor stopped


check for ground going to fan. If there is no ground replace a/c control panel located under radio it what you use to turn on the heater/ a/c
