Resistor switch I have a 2000 chevy malibu ls. I bought it in 2001 and it has been a awesome car. I have the issue where the blower only works on #5 setting. Can you tell me where the switch is, what I need to do, what it looks like in step by step directions? A repai shop wanted $80 for the part and to install it. Thank you! Bruce B Roch, Mn

The resistor is located under the passenger side of the dash. you will have to remove the panel under the glove box. it should have 3 7mm screws holding it in. once removed, look at where the carpet comes up to the dash near the firewall. you will see a wire harness with i believe 7 wires in it plugged into the resistor and a 2 wire harness coming from the resistor to the blower motor. unplug both harnesses. the screws holding the resistor in are 5.5mm screws. there are 3 of them. the one in front will be easy to remove. the other 2 usually are tough to get to. i use a 5.5mm swivel socket for them. look at the new part to get an idea of where the screws are exactly. i don't think you have to completely remove the back 2 screws, just loosen them. the holes should be open slots. good luck.

Have your Check Engine Light scanned at Autozone or Advanced Auto Parts for free. For the Blower Switch, you either have a bad switch or motor/resistor.

Fan motor on a 2000 Chevy Malibu only works on 3-5 and not on 1 & 2. How to fix?


Its the blower motor resistors or the switch itself.
You need shop manual. Then remove the switch and jump certain terminals with a jumper wire to see if fan runs at certain speeds. If fan runs at all speeds when jumped then the switch is your problem . if it runs at the speeds you described in your write up then its the resistors.

Replaced the fan resistor on 2000 chevy malibu this summer. Worked fine but recently the blower won't work on any speed.


this could be a bad blower or the switch to blower,check at blower fan for power if no power it is most likely the switch.if there is power on all speeds then the blower is bad. check all fuses to verify.

I have ran into the same problem, there may be something has got into fan cage. remove fan motor and investagate to see if it is blocked, or if fan is going bad. it is behind glove box, to remove. remove lower right dash insulator panel from under glove box. slide bcm aside for room to get at fan motor. remove 3 screws from fan motor, and remove fan after disconnecting wiring. the blower motor resistor is beside fan motor. the resistor will make ya lose 1 and 2 speeds. for it is a 5 step resistor.

2000 Chevy Malibu blower motor doesn't work on positions 1 & 2. Would appreciate details on how to fix or change it.


remove dash insulator from under glove box. then move bcm to one side, fan resistor is beside the fan blower motor. the resistor will keep fan speeds from working. remove wiring and screws from resistor then take it out.

2005 Chevy Surban blower motor resistor


When the blower is on speed 5, it is a direct 12 volts for high speed and the first four operate through the resistor, check your breaker for the blower motor to insure it is not cutting out.

Where is the blower motor resistor on a 2003 Chevy Malibu


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.

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.

Heating switch


Do you know what was repaired in the last instance that corrected the issue?

My suspicion based on your trouble description is that the blower motor resistor has probably went bad and in need of being replaced.
