SOURCE: 2005 chevy colorado the fan

I had this same problem on my 2006 colorado. when i purchased a new resistor and went to replace it, I decided to check the resistance of each position on the old one with the resistance on the new one. they were both the same. then I decided to look at the harness. I was told that it needed to be replaced as well but I decided to try just the resistor. The harness had one of the connections in the plastic connector that looked like it had over heated. (IE browned char like look) after installing the new resistor, it ran ok for about 2 days then started acting up again. Then I tried my own solution. I pulled the harness loose from the resistor and with the ignition and fan switch off took a paper clip and manuevered it under the connection with the charring and slightly bent the metal connector out. when complete, the adjusted connector appeared to be a tad too far out compared to the other connectors in the plastic. then I reconnected it to the resistor and haven't had a problem since. I did, just out of curiosity switch out the new resistor with the old one and it too also works with no problems. Of course, the dealership will not take back electreical parts that have been placed in use. This should have been a chevy recall but apparently they don't care about anything but the initial sale of their products. I sent an email to GM and got to not response.

SOURCE: Where is the blower motor resistor on a 2003 Chevy Malibu

Remove the shroud below glove box, 2 screws and a snap-pop fitting. Be careful of the courtesy light. Remove the blower moter and disconnect the purple/black power connector to it - - you'll need this extra room to work with. 2 more screws, same size, 6.5mm on mine, 7or 8mm on some others, that holds the blower motor resistor in place. This replacement part is less than 40 bones at most parts store. Unplug, replace, re-install, test and you're on your way with about 2 hours of slow paced effort in your own driveway. Typical cost at a garage - up to $400, what a sham.

SOURCE: how to replace blower motor 2005 chevy 1500 5.3 L

The blower motor is located under the passenger side of the dash. You have to take off the panel that protects the underside of the dash from the passengers feet and you'll find the blower above it. Some of the blowers have another sound insulator around the bottom of the motor but you should be able to easily spot it once you look up there. Takes about an hour to replace if it's your first one. Takes a bit of wrangling but they come out fairly easily.

2005 Chevy colorado blower motor only work on high.


The blower only works on High because something called a "blower motor resister" has gone bad. The resister works by resisting/absorbing the power to the blower motor on the lower speeds, At high speed it lets all the power go through. The part is about $20.00 for a Jeep (common problem). Getting at it and knowing where it is I can't help. But with that knowledge, you should not get screwed by the repair shop.

ON A 2001 CHEVY MALIBU THE BLOWER FAN ONLY WORKS ON SPEEDS 4,5 .... 1,2,3 DONT WORK, FUSES ARE FINE


The blower fan uses a multi segment resister to control the fan speed, it is generally mounted just under the blower in the ducting. The reason 1,2 and 3 are not working is, sections of the resister is burnt out. The lower speeds are the first ones to go since they get hotter due the higher load in soaking the unused power. Resister is around $20. look for blower resister.

Blower fan resistor module replaced, worked for 2 days quit again


HIGH RESISTANCE IN THE BLOWER MOTOR CAN CAUSE YOUR PROBLEM, OR A BAD RESISTOR.
THERE IS NO REAL GOOD WAY TO CHECK THE RESISTANCE OF THE BLOWER MOTOR.

Removing the glove compartment & replacing the blower resister.


You do not need to remove the glove box to get to the resistor its located at the very bottom of the dash. Its held in by 1 or 2 screws. If you already bought the replacement look for the same thing underneath, a flashlight helps. Fairly simple, just have some patience. Its close the the blower motor.
