I say it might not be the blower motor but your on the rite track!good place to start sounds like a loose wire check under hood on passenger side to see if your blower resistor speed switch is plugged in or it might been in passenger feet area above toes in heater box! I think passenger feet area might be the spot your looking for! a v shape plug! i think you will find it no problem!hope this helps

When driving my truck and i hit a bump in the road. The truck will jump around on the road until it straightens out again. If I'm in a turn and I hit a bump the truck will jump around until stability.

Hey Alonzo,
One of three things,
1. Your suspension is WAY TOO STIFF!!! ..most likely
2. ALL of your shocks are frozen, which makes it seem like riding in a buckboard wagon
3. The suspension is way TOO soft.. (not likely)

Bumping noise in rear of Buick LeSabre

If you have fitted new shockys I suggest you check the travel of the units as it sounds as if they are bottoming out Pistons hitting bottom of internal cylinder.

End front shaking

I would remove one end of the steering stabilizer (if you have one) which looks like a shock absorber laying sideways attached to the steering linkage and pull and push on it.It should be stiff to move.
Also have the tires dynamically balanced on a motorized name brand wheel balancer.Next have the front end alignment checked with the normal load you carry in it.Not enough caster in the alignment can cause a shake/wobble easily.

My 1999 Jeep Wrangler Sport quits momentarily when I hit a bump in the road (paved, not off-road). It starts running again in about a second or two. Computer, maybe?

Why would hitting a bump have anything to do with a computer?

Vehicles hit bumps on every road trip

Computer is a solid state board,no moving parts

1996 Chev 4x4, short cab, long box, unstable when hit bumps

sounds like aeither a shock or a stabilizer bar or tie rods you can check all of these yourself , check the shocks by pushing down on the corner of your truck three times and it should bounce no more than 3 times and stop if it seems very loose and bounces alot they are usually bad, to check the tie rods and stabilizer bar just jack up the vehicle and then secure it with a axle jack or some type of block that will kep the vehicle from falling then just reach under and try to move the stabilizer bar and tie rods by hand and see if they move easily if they move by hand they are shot but they may not move and still be bad and you would have to have them checked at a shop

I have a 1994 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 which when I hit a bump going over 20 mph the entire front end shakes so that you have to pull over for it too stop. It doesn't shake just going down the road if you don't...

I had a truck at work that did the same thing. Only if you hit a pothole. In my case the front tires were way out of balance. Hope it's something that simple.

Yoy can jump the truck off, but wile you are

It is probably a loose ground wire. If it only does it while hitting bump, then there is a loose wire somewhere. It may be loose fuse but probably loose wire or solder joint going to dash control board
