Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

Heat only when switch is on high

I have a 2004 with a 4 banger. I cannot seem to get the blower motor to work on anything but high. I thought it might be the blower control switch in the dash console. I replaced that and it still only blows on high. Could it be the blower motor itself. Is there a relay or something internalized in the blower motor assembly that could have went bad?

Htg and a/c fan switch only works on high in 2004 GMC Envoy. The a/c and heat work, just the blower only blows on high


Sounds like the blower motor resistor module is bad. It is located behind the glovebox and mounted to the blower motor. Open the glovebox and in the back left corner find a spring, push on spring to release glovebox door completely. You should be able to see blower motor and resistor module.

Blower on heat/a not working


So it works with a/c but doesn/t work with heat. Is that what your saying?
Or it blows cold air on heat selection?

If it blows but only blows cold air on heat selection
check out the following items:
temperature selector switch
blend door actuator and motor.



Here are a list of items to check out or have a shop inspect if it doesn't blow anything at all.
a) on/off switch
b) relay
c wiring
d) resistors
e) blower motor

2004 hyundai, elantra. The air blower only works at a 4 setting or higher! any thoughts?


The switch that runs the blower motor for air and heat sends the DC voltage through some big resisters when it isn't set on high. (On high it sends all the power to the motor.)
If the lowest speed doesn't work then one of the resisters has gone bad, or come disconnected. If more than 1 speed doesn't work then a differant resister has gone bad or disconnected. The power runs through each resister in series so the most common one to go bad is the second to highest speed. when this resister is bad thaen it will only work on the highest setting. Replacing the switch won't fix it. You will have to find the resister that is bad and replace it.
The resister bank is usually tucked up behind the dash where only a kid can focus his eyes, and contort himself enough to see it.
Once the resister is replaced it should run perfectly.
Presto.

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.

Fan motor for the heat and air only works on high


No this shouldn't be a big problem. It sounds like it is just the blower motor relay.

Blower for heater stopped


Remove the hush panel under the dash and unplug your blower motor turn the knob and see if its getting power. If it is replace the blower motor. If your heater seems to work on high but not the other 4 settings. replace the blower motor resistor and pigtail (same general location as blower motor)

Limited heat


first, check the fuse for the blower motor. If ok, you may have a bad switch or bad blower motor. If you are a techie, you should jumper 12 volts to the blower motor hot terminal. see if it blows then. You also have a blower motor resister that gives you the 4 blower speeds, but usually when it fails, you have high speed only.

good luck
