Sounds like your blower motor may have gone out simple test to find out first off locate your blower motor most of the time under passenger side dash unplug it take a DVOM and test continuity through the blower if you have continutiy through it most likely isnt the blower.. I you dont have a multi meter there are otherways to test it like pulling the blower motor out and bench testing it this can be done with a couple of pieces of wire and a battery..... other possible causes could be your blower resistor highly unlikely because most often this will leave you with only the high setting.... your blower relay or heater controls if this dosent fix you ill keep an eye out to see if i cant help you further but the blower is the most likely cause of this hope this helps

Air not blowing out dash vents


There is a resistor that goes out on the odyssey and pilots for the blower motor. Does it blow on full speed? Is it both front and back that don't work?

Normally when the blower motor goes out it has trouble a few days before and cuts in and out so I would check fuses first but I may be wrong and if the fuses are fine the I would change the motor

The blower motor for the air conditioning doesn't come on. The compressor comes on. I ohmed the blower motor and it was good. I jumped the blower motor and it turned freely. With the control set 1 2 3...


> With the control set 1 2 3 4 it does blow any air,
? does NOT?
A common problem with this control is the failure of a stepped resistor which causes only the highest speed to still function since this bypasses the resistor.
Tracing the leads from the fan speed switch may help locate it.

My air use to blow cold air,then it would stop workin ehen i turned it off or turned off the ignition! i would hit the dash to make it come back on after a few times of that, it just stopped workin all...


the first two things I would check are the blower motor and the blower motor resistor. most likely it is the blower motor since it would come on when you hit it, but now it doesn't.

My car is RAV4 toyota blow fan not working on 1,2,3 but #4 working only I replace switch but same as before,Please would give what I do next. Thank you.


Sounds like you have a bad blower motor resistor (manual HVAC). The resistor is just that a set of resistors in serious that drop voltage to regulate fan speed. Speed one uses all the resistors to drop the voltage the most. Speed for doesn't use the resistors so full power can be used by the blower motor to make it work at full speed.

The resistor is typically located near the blower motor under the passenger side of the dash. and will have 4-5 wires going to it.

96 Blazer A/C WILL NOT BLOW ANY AIR HOT OR COLD


BEFORE YOU DO ANY HARD WORK TURN ON YOUR A/C AND BLOWER AND TAP THE BACK OF THE BLOWER MOTOR WITH A SMALL HAMMER IN A COMPLETE CIRCLE. SOUNDS LIKE YOU JUST HAVE SOME STICKING BRUSHES IN THE BLOWER MOTOR.

Heater fan blowing intermittently or not at all


Most likely it does, if you can hit the motor and it will run. I can't say for sure but you might want to chk. to see if you got a heater blower motor resister. There located (if its got one) around the heater motor and it controls blower speeds, might be worth checking out.
