96 Tahoe heater air con fan on the fritz

Hi
96 Tahoe, fan for the heater aircon used to have to be tapped with a stick or something solid like a kick with a shoe to get it started as it appeared to be stuck, then it worked fine until the next time you needed to use it after switching it off. Now it does not have to be tapped or kicked, but only works in high position. In other words the fan will not run in any of the other three positions and does not stick any more.
Any ideas?
Steve

This sound like the windings in the motor are bad. If you are getting power to the motor in all speeds, motor is probably bad. There is a relay that is located behind the glove box. The glove box usually just snaps out by gently flexing in the sides. The relay is mounted on a bracket. Small, black, and square. Don't over look a bad switch either.

Good Luck

WHY DOES MY RADIATOR FAN COMES ON ONLY WHEN MY AC IS ON ON MY 88 TOYOTA COROLLA


Hi,
it is generally because the air con heat exchanger has to be cooled in order for your air con to work correctly and cool the interior of your car.


The air conditioning utilises a gas by the name of freon. This gas is pumped around the air con system by a compressor. The gas, going through the aircon cooler or heat exchanger, starts to cool down. Depending on the system layout, the gas is forced through a very small aperture situated after the cooler. It reverts to a liquid, passes through the matrix in the car, a fan blows the interior air of the car through the matrix. The fluid picks up the heat, and cooler air exits the matrix and, (hopefully) cools the interior of the car. This endless cycle is repeated as long as the air con is powered on.

Hope this brief description will suffice.

How do i get the fan to blow the heat out


i guess the simple answer is turn on the switch, but you're probably already doing that. if it's blowing cold air when it set to hot, you may have air in the cooling system, or a blockage somewhere, usually in the heater core. if the fan isn't working at all, check fuses. if they're good, check for voltage at the fan itself and replace it if necessary.

Strange Problem Bravo Ute Air Conditioning


the blower motor has no affect on the AC system,
start the engine and turn on AC and watch the AC compressor to see if clutch engages,if it doesn't the system isn't full,if you are correct the clutch should be engaged and should quit when you change heater speeds,

Air conditioner not working in 2007 dodge geand caravan sxt


Hi, the problem your having could be something simple like needs the air con gas topping up this needs to be done at a garage.
If the gas level is ok then the aircon belt needs checking making sure it has not come off.
If both of these are ok then the problem could lie with the aircon pump itself this can be replaced but at a cost.
So get the gas checked and the belt the drive the air con pully.
Hope this is some help to you let me know if you need further assistance
