The only thing that is now coming to mind, with that information, is that they may have given you the wrong blower motor resistor (putting too much resistance in the circuit and thus causing the motor to run slower) or the motor itself is going bad (not common in that they go bad that way, they usually just fail) or your ignition switch is getting a lot of carbon build up in it.

GM runs the power through the accessories through the ignition switch and the heavy load causes carbon build up on the switch contacts and can cause issues. Commonly, however, when that happens, there are issues with other accessories such as the radio, Drivers Information Center, etc.

Theres no easy way to test if its the ignition switch or the blower motor itself that I am aware of. So I suppose the next question would be did it have this exact same issue before you replaced the blower motor resistor.

Also, if you like, there is a Grand Prix community online at www.grandprixforums.net that may be able to offer further insight if you want to sign up there and see if you can get further assistance from there.

I replaced the a/c blower on my 2010 Ford F150 XL truck with a blower from a 2012 but it seems to be blowing weak. Any suggestions as to how I can get it blow stronger?


it may be the incorrect blower motor as one may be full auto and other may be manual a/c also it is possible that the high blower resistor is burnt also

2004 Chrysler Pacifica Blower won't work


Usally when a blower motor resistor goes bad the fan still runs on high. The resistor lowers the voltage going to the fan to make it run slower. The high setting usually goes straight thru. Resistors are usually easy to get to, under good on the firewall or under dash passenger side. Cost about $24 at parts store. Replace with new if that doesn't work return it.

The heater is not blowing hot air like it should the heater core has been replaced just blowig cool air


First check your coolant level if your coolant is good then it is probably your thermostat. If the thermostat is old it can be stuck shut.

1997 isuzu rodeo blower will not come on relay is good


replace blower motor and resistor at the same time to fix it. The motor may work and may have to much resistance and an old motor will burn up a new resistor.

Only works on high speed (fan switch)


It sounds like the blower resistor needs to be replaced. Auto Zone will have the blower resistor that you need to replace and will have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done with common tools and will take just under 2 hours if your good with tools. Good luck and keep me posted, the cost of the resistor it self is around $27.00

Air Conditioner blower motor resistor was replaced 2 years ago when ac blower stopped working. Blower is not workinga again, i replaced the blower motor resistor (behind glove box) and still not working....


Motor is also energized by a relay. check that and also check that the motor itself is good by running a hot lead right to it. I'm sure you already checked the fuse and know the switch is good?
