SOURCE: Blower Motor problem

Hi,

Sorry but most that I can give would be generic as Pontiac Grand Prix are not that common in my country. I am assuming you are referring to the fan/blowers of the A/C unit.

Based on your description and from what little I know of the circuitry/wiring of current blowers:
1. the clicking sound would be a relay engaging and therefore the speed selector switch could be assumed to be operational since it can trigger the relay;
2. the day time running lights and auto night lights turning off when engaging the fan switch indicates possibly a common supply problem. This could be a wire or terminal in the fuse block. This common B+12 supply logically would be split into several including the fan blower fuse and the lights fuse. It is also possible that said terminal is corroded or has scorched marks preventing full flow of current or be disconnected intermittently;
3. since you have changed the resistor (presumably known and tested to be good) then the problem lies elsewhere possibly back to #2 above;
4. I would discount any ignition problem as it would be more engine related and has nothing to do with the fan/blower except that it share a common IGN B+12 which again points back to possibly #2; and
5. Though am not sure, but I think your car has also a blower motor control processor which also could be at fault.

I believe your best option would be to use a DVM to check for the presence of B+ supply to the fan motor while going through the switch settings (1 to 5). Thereafter trace back until you reach the resistor and its input of +12, go further back and trace it to the fuse holder and eventually to the common supply. You would have three (3) B+12, a) always ON; b) IGN ON; and blower switch ON.

Would appreciate a post back for any developments or results of your voltage checks.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Again, pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: 2000 grand prix day time running lights/blower not working correctly

Believe it or not, but it was a bad ignition switch. I the switch apart and found about 3 different and one in particular that were burned pretty bad. Must have been the circuit that controls the blower and DRL? Found the solution on another blog. I put a new switch on in about 1.5 hours. I does take a couple special tools, very small female torx sockets. Other than that pretty easy.

If it works some times then it is probably the switch.

Tail light fuse keeps blowing pontiac vibe


You must have a bad connection somewhere creating a high amperage draw in this circuit. I would start by checking the bulb sockets for corrosion, bad grounds where they attach to vehicle.

2003 vibe will not start


It has good spark then? Have you pulled a plug or two after prolonged cranking to see if plugs are wet with gas? You said pump was working, have you checked the fuel pressure? Nothing in your comment about the injectors-that's why I asked if plugs were wet.

Check the fuse for injectors, verify that power is available at all injectors with key in ON. You can check the injector circuit with a "noid light" available at any parts store-different sizes, so get the one that fits your injector connector. Just plug the light in and crank the engine over. If circuit is good, the light will blink. If it doesn't blink or if it lights up and stays lit-the circuit is not right.

All of this is to see if injectors are pulsing and spraying fuel. Do the same with spraying starting fluid into the air intake and cranking motor. If engine now runs for a few seconds, then you know it was a fueling problem.

My 2003 Pontiac Vibe tail lights do not work. The brake lights work. I checked the tail fuse. Turn signals work also. Why no tail lights?


Your turn signal lights and brake lights are the same lights . Question : do the front parking lights work ? The front and rear running lights or parking lights are all on the same circuit and fuse . If the front lights work , and the rear lights don't , make sure the bulbs are good first . If OK , I would suspect the problem is either a bad ground in the rear taillight wiring harness or a bad connection in the rear taillight connector Itself .

Tail lights and dash lights are not commin on. back up lights brake lights and turn signals all still work. I think it has something to do with some type of switching device for the day time running...


It sounds like you may have blown a fuse the tail lights and dash lights are usually on the same fuse. Do you have the owners manual? That will show you where the fuse boxes are located and which fuse does what. If you find a blown fuse and it blows another one right away, there's a problem in the wiring. You'll have to get it checked bt a mechanic.
