Question about Pontiac Aztek

Blower motor fan speed control switch

My fan only blows on one speed. No matter what I turn the dial to, it stay blowing at one speed. Sometimes it is on high and sometimes it is on med/low. So, I know it is not the blower motor. It is a problem with the switch. I would like to order a new one but the dealer in our rural town can only order the entire climate control dash. I need just the plug (I believe). What is this plug called and where can I order it? Do you think it will solve my problem?

It is probably the blower control module, not your temperature switch - I would try replacing that.

SOURCE: new climate control unit but when on blower not working for heat or ac

I'm assuming the problem is the blower motor isn't coming on or working. 1st, check the fuse. 2nd, remove the glove box or pull the 2 tabs that act like stops when it's open ( the glove box will open out further) and you'll see the power plug connector for the blower unit. Turn on the blower through the climate control (heat, A/C, or whatever) and wiggle the connector to see if the blower turns on. If starts working, then an easy solution is pull the connector off and gently press the prongs together or inward. Then carefully reconnect with damaging the prongs. This worked for 96 Mark VIII due to the fact the prongs were not "seating" correctly in the female connector. It's been about 2 years since I did this and the connection is still good. If wiggling the plug doesn't work, pull the plug, turn on the climate control (heat, A/C), and check for voltage to the plug. That's about all I can help with.

SOURCE: Front climate control blower only works on high speed.

Replace your blower motor resistor
Resistor located under dash on passenger side in screwed into blower housing. May be able to be repaired. Requires soldering a small piece of "unmelted solder" across where the old fusible link was. look carefully at resistor. Or else just replace. Buy new. Junkyard resistor likely to be as bad as yours.

SOURCE: Blower on heater works sometimes, sometimes it

Sounds like the blower resistor. It will either be located in the engine compartment outside the motor or inside the vehicle inside the blower motor cover. It could also as well be selector switch

Have a 2009 Nissan Quest I can't turn the heat off. Just stays on a high level of blowing out heat .

If you have a fan that has different speed settings (1234, or low med high etc) and the only one that works is high - then the blower resistor pack has failed. If you have a climate control unit (where you just pick a temp you want) then the fan is controlled by the heating system and it sets fan speed. If you have climate control style try lowering the temp to a lower setting (current temp in vehicle) and see if fan slows down. If not then climate control unit or fan resistor bad. If dial type and you get nothing on lower settings (only high works like mentioned above) you need to change blower resistor. It is located under dash near the fan itself. Look for small unit bolted in duct near fan with wire plug going to it.

AC blows cold air, fans stop blowing

I think you have a "variable speed resistor" problem, it's overheating. It's an electronic device usually located near or attached to the AC motor blower that controls the fan speed. This is a common problem with aging AC blowers with electronic controls.

Heater fan only works high

it sounds like the heater switch itself is bad. I would change it.

Why did my 02 trailblazer stop blowing ac through all the vents when, switched to heat it still doesn't blow air through the vents? I have no air flow what's wrong?? :(

First check all the fuses. There should be one for Blower or Heater. If all fuses are good, It is likely a bad blower motor or a switch to turn on the blower motor. Try all fan speeds in non auto mode and see if you get any activity. If you get activity on some fan speeds then it is the switch or sometimes called the blower motor resistor. If no activity, its time for a new blower motor. They are under the dash usually on the passenger side, shouldnt be too hard to pull out.

The mercedes benz e320 2003 A/C blower works only sometimes.

the fan must be removed and checked for binding and drag. if it gets worse, a fuse will keep blowing. if the motor spins freely, then the controls have to be diagnosed

My 2006 yukon denali a/c stopped blowing,at first it would only blow on low i was unable to turn it up any higher now its not blowing. do you know the problem

Could be the fan switch, the resistor, or the blower motor. A mechanic would check for voltage at each point and also the ground connection for the motor.

My heat is hot but doesn't blow. Is it the resistor, motor or something else? I checked my fuses they look fine.

Clear out the dust on the dial and slide control first.
MOVE these control back and forth and sensor for broken linkage and connecting rods.
If these are able to move smoothly then turn the back and froth and monitor for the flap / defector blending valve movement.
Pass a ShopVac to clean out all the dust.
==== The resistor pack for the blower motor can fail over time.
Check loose connector on blower and resistor pack around the firewall.

Please keep me up to date on the fix via email.

The blower motor on my heater will not turn off. When I move the switch it keeps blowing regardless of the setting.

Hello you do not specified the make and model of your car regardless you will need to locate your blower motor speed switch usually located within inches from the blower motor it self some people call this switch the blower motor isolator switch as well this controls you fan speeds.Sometimes you loose one or more speeds and usually your left with one speed before it quits all together
