Re: location of the Heat resistor in a 2003 Chevy Malibu?
Under the glove box, behind the blower motor itself. Remove the shroud below glove box, 2 screws and a snap-pop fitting. Be careful of the courtesy light. Remove the blower moter and disconnect the purple/black power connector to it - - you'll need this extra room to work with. 2 more screws, same size, 6.5mm on mine, 7or 8mm on some others, that holds the blower motor resistor in place. This replacement part is less than 40 bones at most parts store. Unplug, replace, re-install, test and you're on your way with about 2 hours of slow paced effort in your own driveway. Typical cost at a garage - up to $400, what a sham.

Block heater..no where unless you had one installed or factory ordered...for colder climates like Akaska..The device that allows the block to heat and get heat in the car is called the thermostat..located on the top of ten engine where the top radiator hose attaches to the engine...good luck..
Likely the blower motor resistor. located right next to the blower motor, this device is resposible for reducing the voltage suplied to the motor. when it fails you may loose some or all speeds of the motor
first of all remove trim under glovebox. then loosen and slid the pcm out of the way. you will then see the fan and resistor, resistor is beside fan motor. remove resistor and if need be replace it. if resistor is bad then you will not get all fan speeds. there is a coil for each speed. good luck carl,
Your blower speed resistor has gone bad and needs to be replaced. You can pick one up at Auto Zone or Parts Source with the step by step instructions to getting the resistor replaced with common tools.
It is located under the glove box, way in the back of the passenger
foot area. You'll need to remove 2 screws with a 7mm socket, and remove
the plastic cover that covers the blower motor and another component
box that I think controls the passenger airbag. After removing the
plastic cover you'll need to side that passenger airbag module to the
right so it pop off its mounting bracket and move it out of the way.
That will give a better view of the blower motor. I highly recommend you
also remove the blower motor itself because the Blower Motor Resistor
is located behind it. I think you'll need a 5mm or 5.5mm socket to
remove the 3 screws that hold in place the blower motor and 2 more
screws for the Blower Motor Resistor... It's a cramped location to work
in but if you have all the tools and enough lighting then it shouldn't
take more than 30-60 minutes to do. The Blower Motor Resistor costs
about $19-$25. Good luck
For location and replacement of the BMR. Remove the shroud below the glove box, 2 screws and a snap-pop fitting. Be careful of the courtesy light. Remove the blower moter and disconnect the power harness - - you'll need this extra room to work with. 2 more screws, same size, 7/32, 6.5, 7or 8mm on some, that holds the blower motor resistor in place. This replacement part is less than 40 bones at most parts store. Unplug, replace, re-install, test and you're on your way with about 2 hours of slow paced effort in your own driveway. Typical cost at a garage/dealer - up to $400.
