Question about 2003 Chevrolet Impala
The blower has not worked on first level in forever, but lately it would not work at all when I started the car. It would eventually come on about 5 minutes later, and now it does not come on at all. I replaced the blower resistor, but that did not fix it. Any ideas?

SOURCE: My heater blower stopped working
The blower motor, as you have probably seen, is under the dash on the passengers side. While in Park with the parking brake applied:
Turn the Key On with fan blower set to High. Locate the blower motor and wiggle the electrical connector. If this brings the blower motor to life, a new blower motor is needed. This, if applicable, is a common failure that matches your symptoms. The new blower is simple to replace, although it is never fun working under the dash.
If you have a 12 volt test light or DVOM (multimeter) you can check for power at the electrical connector. You should have battery voltage (12+) with the blower set on high. Always use a known good ground when testing for power. If you have power (key on, set to high) and no blower operation the blower motor needs replacing.
The resistor you replaced is a very common failure on these.
Give me an update.

SOURCE: Blower motor or resistor?
If it was the motor that went out then it would not blow at all. The resistor is the culprit that starts killing off speeds. It should be about $25 to $30 at an aftermarket store like autozone or advanced auto parts.

SOURCE: Blower motor or resistor?
Yes its the blower motor resistor.
More then likley theres some trash or something in it, or possibly the motor itself is on it's way out. There not that bad to pull out of that body car, just pull it out and see what you can see.
The blower motor is under the glove compartment
You can replace the resistor on your own. Please find a detailed diagram which would guide you to do it.

It is on the passenger side, you have to remove the black plastic kick plate, below the glove box, to expose it (held in place with 2 latches and 1 push pin). The resistor is in front of the blower motor ( sandwiched between the motor housing and the firewall) it is tricky to get to, i think when i changed mine i didnt replace all the screws as they were difficult to remove and even harder to replace. Good Luck, Mike

The blower motor resistor is located behind the glovebox mounted in the fan housing box under the dash.
