    Thanks Spankie09 Being that this is a plow truck and I am out in cold weather a bunch of times in a pinch I have kicked the black plastic housing under the passenger side dash and the fan would come on and work on any speed I wanted. Not any more just high(4) Does this lean you toward switch or resistor.

    Thanks again

It is under the dash next to where your passenger feet would be on the floor board.right above a person feet on the pasenger side. Also sounds like the switch in the dish is going out, if only working on high (4). I would replace switch first. Get one out of junk yard at half price.

Trying to find the relay switch to my heater on my 1994 Chevy 2500 Silverado?

There might not be any relay, Mary - it might be wired directly from the switch to the blower motor, although the lower blower speeds may go through a speed-reducing resistor pack to get there. If that's true, the resistor pack will be somewhere in the heater plenum, probably near the passenger's foot area.

If the blower doesn't run at all, check for voltage at the blower motor with a meter or test light, switch in all positions, keyswitch ON. The blower motor may have failed.

Heater fan stop working in a 1996 sierra truck

did all speeds stop working or does it have high only?
if none of the speeds are working then you need to verify you are getting voltage to the motor, if you have voltage the motor is out, no voltage check the heater control relay.
if it blows only on high then its the blower motor resistor located in the duct work under the dash around the glove box area

I have a 1996 blazer 4x4. The heater fan is making a growling noise no matter what speed it is running at or which position the vents are at... i.e. defrost, floor, etc. I believe the resistors are burnt...

well the growling noise is more than likely a worn bearing in the blower motor it would be better to replace the whole motor, and on the fan speeds the blower motor resistor is the cheaper solution to take and more likely however if the resistor doesnt fix it then look at the control unit in the dash as the problem but like i said more than likely the resistor will fix the problem

Hi, sounds like your blower motor resistor needs to be replaced. If not the resistor, check the blower motor.
