Heater resistor repair in 1999 chev. K3500

The blower fan only works on high, but the other day it stopped working even on this setting. I believe the heater resistor needs replacement. Any ideas on how to replace this without removing too many other things to get at it? Thanks in advance, Dave

The blower motor resistor is under the passenger side of the dash. If its still there you will have to remove the plastic cover, not tough. Your looking for a flat connector with 4 to 6 wires. The resistor will have 2,3, or 4 little bolts holding it in. It will be easy if you get a new one so you can see what it looks like. From what you described It sure sounds like the resistor.

I have a 1999 buick Lasebra the heat or fan is not working what could it be


Well it could be any one of a few things ! There are two blower motor relays , two fuse's an the blower motor resistor, but wouldn't think that is the problem unless you have high speed blower operation ! But then again don't know if we are even talking about the same fan ? heater fan not cooling fan ?

Heater blower will only work on high


You need a new blower resistor by the sounds of things. When you select the three lower speed settings, the current supplied to power up the blower motor goes through the resistor, to slow the speed of the blower motor down. When the high speed is selected, the resistor is bypassed, and full current is passed to the blower. I believe the resistor is $12 at an auto parts store. Good Luck Tim

Heater fan only works on "high speed"


All cars are designed with a blower fan motor that pushes air through the ventilation system. This air is processed by a series of vents to direct the air to various positions. Example: heater, air conditioner and defrost modes. Most blower motors are power by a basic electrical circuit that utilizes a multi resistor or a solid-state resistor to control different fan speed modes (low, medium low, medium and high). If the resistor malfunctions it may lose one or more of the lower fan speed settings.

I have a 1999 Jeep Wrangler and the heater fan stopped working for all the fan speeds. The fuses are fine. How do you know if it is the blower resistor or the blower motor?


If you bypass the resistor pack and connect the motor directly to the fused 12v supply then the fan should run at maximum speed. If so, it's the resistor pack that's blown: a very common fault on a huge number of makes and models.

Heater fan only blows on high


I believe there are TWO fuses for the heater blower. One for the lower speeds and one for the high speed ONLY. REcheck the fuses or refer to the owner's manual for the location...

Blower on my 2004 Chev Colorado only works on high setting #4.


You need a resistor pack, which is likely located in the air box, near the blower motor.

1998 Astro Van Heater AC Blower only works on medium & Low


Yes, in high it bypasses the resistor and uses a high blower relay. But I think on 1998 Astro the High relay and the resistor are built together. It should be mounted in the blower box real close to the blower motor.

Blower stopped working


Bad blower motor resistor.Remove plug & look to see if the plug is burnt/melted on any contacts.Also check the pigtail that plugs into blower motor.I only had to replace my resistor.

Generally this a problem with the blower resistor, but also check the fuse.
