It could even be the blower motor, since u replaced the heater resistor pack, check to see if the blower motor is working, then check the fuse

    disconnect the wiring from the heater blower motor, put the fan switch on see if there is a live and earth, if so then the heater blowr motor needs replacing, i not check the fuse under the steering coloumnand the engine bay, if all fuses are ok then there is a possibility it could be the switch itself

I am postive that your problem is the blower motor resister. it is located behind the glove box and Ibeielve it has 4 wires. It would be about $40 i think at a Nissan dealer. very easy to replace. about 6 srews on the glove box and then 2 sr=crews on the rsister.

My blower motor only works on 1 & 2 & 3 speeds dont work on 4 & 5. I was told to buy a blower motor. Need to know where this is located to replace on my 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer

If your blower works at some speeds and not others, the likelihood of the blower motor needing to be replaced is low. The more common problems would be either the switch or the resister that regulates the motor speed. The resistor is usually located in the air duct under the dash.

Hi there, I have a problem with the Blower motor. 4 years ago it wouldnt work on 1, and now not on two either. 3 and 4 still work (but for how long). That one doesn't work seems to be a very common issue...

it needs a blower moter resister beleive honda calls it a blower motor basically routes the current through the desired resistance for the setting.the lower the setting the more resistance in the circuit the higher the setting the less resistance in the circuit .ive changed many many of them for people you need it .......blower motor module

Blower switch for a/c and heater on dash only works on speed 4----blower fan does nothing on setting 1, 2, or 3---Would this be a fuse?

you have a faulty blower motor resistor. This unit is usually located near the blower motor under the passenger side dash. It controls the fan speed for a/c-heater etc. They cost around $25-$80 depending on your model.

Heater at step 1,2 does'nt work, 3,4 working

Hello saleh.
In your Honda there is a resistor that controls the blower speeds.
The resistor is partially burned out causing the loss of speeds.
Sometimes this can happen due to corrosion but it is also possible a warning that the blower motor is drawing too much power and burning the circuit.
The blower fan flow helps to cool the resistor as it does get hot from the resistance.
The resistor is mounted in the airbox on the right side below the dash. You may need to remove the glovebox to access it.

Blower motor only works on 3 and 4 setting, sqeeks, and will sometimes blow white/gray smoke from vents and when this happens the blower motor will only work on the 4 setting

Replace the blower motor and the resister located in the blower box.The resister controls your speeds,and the blower motor has gone bad and burned out part of the resister

The heater fan only works on positions 3 and 4

I dont know what the car uses , but it could be the resister if equipped , or relay. more than likely a relay on that year
