Running cooler than normal (indicated by temp gauge), hot air not hot, thermostat not the problem (recently replaced), check engine light NOT on.


as far as the temp of the air blowing...it in direct proportion to engine coolant temp...try a hotter thermostat....as for the faan running continuously that is a seperate problem and sounds like a faulty rheostat or fan switch...rheostat is elect, switch on the fan motor that enables different speeds and may beinternal on your truck. only parts store will know . if it is replace fan motor. if not , test switch and then test rheostat

2005gmc temp control fan only works on its highest setting


The fan speed control module is no good. There are two types of fan control. The rheostat kind which is more common on older cars. It is made up of series of resistors to bring down current for diffrent speeds, and uses nichrome wire. The other kind uses an alectronic circuit that has one large transistor, and works very similar to the speed control on a rechargable drill except the fan is speed set instead of variable continously like a rechargable drill. I have worked on one of these electronic fan speed control, and noticed that it has a thermal fuse in it for safety. The thermal fuse looks almost like resistor on the one I had fixed, and it is solder onto the circuit board. I replaced it with a regular thermal fuse of the same rating and saved the customer over a hundred dollars on a new electronic module. Good luck.

There are two types of blower fan speed control. One uses a rheostat, and the other one uses electronic circuits. The speed control is atually located on the blower fan housing. It is fastened with two screws. The rheostat kind uses nicrhome wires(same wire used for heating element such as a toaster etc. The more wire wound around the mica material( anyways a mica is a heatproof material), the greater the resistance and therefore the slowe the motor will turn. The electronic kind uses a transistor, and works very much like the speed control on a cordless power drill. The transistor gets pulse from another electronic device and this pulse is modulated by the control knob in your dash. When this transistor gets messed up it gets shorted. This results in having high speed at all settings. The rheostat kind mess up when the nichrome wire gets burnt out and you end up with may a fan that works only on high, or maybe wroks only on medium and high vice versa. So the problem is the speed control mounted on your blower fan housing. If you want to know how to test them let me knw I will show you.

Fan switch only works on the two highest settings


the various speeds are controlled through resisters (spring-like in apperance) one of different value for each speed, none for highest speed as the power gets to the blower uninpeeded . the resistor pack should be located on the center of the firewall, held by 2 screws. thats under the hood. where the engine bay ends....
