Usually this is a problem with the Blower motor resistor. This part can be found by following the blower motor wiring from the fan to the underhood ductwork. Located inside the Firewall and attached through the Firewall, this cigarette package sized part is mostly hidden. What you will see is a wire leading to it and the head of the part attached with 2 screws.

This part fails for unknown reasons and can often be reactivated with a tap of a broom handle. If unsuccessful, you will need to replace it. There may be clearance problems with a water hose coming off the rear of the engine.

The water line can be removed without significant loss of antifreeze if you follow this sequence. Unplug the electric wire. Remove mounting screws. Working on a COLD engine, loosen the hose clamp.

Now have your new part located where you can grab it with 1 hand. Your second hand will fold over the disconnected heater hose so that it does not drain. (You can use both hands to disconnect the heater hose,) Then switch the old and new part without worrying about tightening it down yet.

Reconnect the heater hose. Clamp it, then finish tightening the new part.

If this fails to repair the problem, your Electronic A/C has a diagnostic feature. But you need activation procedures for your specific unit and a translation for what the results are. After that, you would need location and replacement info. It may be a big job.

The good news is that the diagnostic scan could easily be done within 3 minutes. So an accommodating Dealer could do it free as part of estimating repair costs.

I hope you find my info helpful.

My blower motor dosent work on my 2005 mercury sable

Probably your blower resistor switch (it's the part that gives you your fan speeds) is bad. You can test your blower by applying 12volts to it and see if it spins. The blower motor and resistor switch are both under/behind your glove box. Both should be easily accessible after removing panel above feet.

2003 chevy silverado blower motor wont work i tested blower motor it works i just replaced the resistor and still dosent work, i also checked the fuses and the are ok please what else could it be

Is the blower motor not getting power or ground ?
There are two fuses that power the HVAC control module. The module controls the blower motor processor and the blend doors.
Have you tested the module and processor ?
You may need a shop manual for the wiring diagrams and procedures.

The heater fan on my 98 chevy silverado stopped working... worked on high at first but made a high pitched noise and stopped all together

Run 12V directly to the motor and see if it will run, if it dosent than the motor is bad, if it does than the resister is bad, the resister makes the blower run and also regulates the speeds for the blower, but chanses are if it was making a high pitch squeel before it quit the motor went out.

My rear AC blower dosent work. I dont seem to


Thanks for using Fixya!

check the wire terminals from the fan motor, its possible that they are loose. Also check the relays if they are good. Just swap out the other relays to test if it will work. These relays can be found in the fuse box under the dash or under the hood.

Have a great day.
