Question about 2007 Kia Spectra LX Sedan

1 Answer

Heater fan blower

Problem did not start until 20 degree nights. I have to hit the bottom of the fan housing underneath the glove compartment to get the heater to come on. It will work for a little while and then turn off and I have to do it all over again. Maybe something stuck in it? Or maybe it is not getting enough juice or the flow of juice is interrupted. I do not have the manual that goes with my car to see if there is a cabin air filter that may be blocking the flow? Any advise? I also do not have money so expensive trouble shooting is not an option.

    When it comes on it works in all speeds. When it does not come on none of the speeds work. The rear defrost always works. Once I bump the bottom of the fan housing it will work fine.

Either blower motor is bad or blower motor resistor. Does it work on all speeds?

    It sounds like the blower motor to me. The resistor would cause certain speeds to go out. Messing with the controls or jiggleing the knobs does nothing when it is inop.

    Quick question. Is there a way to test the blower motor before spending $50.00 on a new one?

  • Jesse Smith Nov 26, 2013

    You already have. Beat on it. Its just like any fan. If it stops give it a bump and it works. If it works on all speeds but only sometimes and messing with the knobs does nothing its the blower. Can you see an elevtrical connector on the outside of heater?

  • Jesse Smith Nov 26, 2013

    Yes from what alldata shows me it bolts in with 3your screwa going straight up into the heater box and the electrical is right on the bottom. What i would do is but one and plug it into the connector sit it on the floor and see what it does. If it doesnt work take it back and you didnt need it and never used it.

hello. i am not a mechanic but maybe our cure for our kia would help someone else. our 2000 kia wouldnt start, the lights and everything would come on but it wouldnt turn over. we replaced starter, battery, etc. finally my husband just paid our mechanic $130 and we bypassed the starter with a manual push start button. now when it doesnt want to start i just hit the button (after i turn on the key) and it starts every time!

SOURCE: Car is running fine then

I had the same problem, but only when it rained. There was a crack in the ignition coil unit and the water was creating an arc. When I drove long enough to heat the engine and evaporate the water it would run fine. Strangely, though, I still had to stop and restart the engine. $150 bucks the replace the ignition coil, and now no problems (at least with that)

SOURCE: AIR CONDITIONING

Your problem is on the fan speed switch on the dash board. You can get it from the dealer for $50.00 or you can get the whole control assembly with all the switches from a junk yard for about $50.00. I had the same problem and that's what I did.
Good luck.

SOURCE: replace cabin air filter Kia Amanti 2005

You open the glove box, drop down the glove box door. There will be a slim panel behind the glove box that needs to be removed. Remove that panel and voila! That's where your cabin air filter is at. It's easy to do.

They are near the blower motor as the air is used to cool the resister, usually on the bottom of the blower housing.

Heater blower switch will only work at possion 4


Underneath the glove compartment on the passenger side is a cover which must come off,2 plastic screws holding this cover.Underneath you will find a 5 pin connector[big plug] connected to a white connector in the blower fan housing.This is called the fan resistor which controls the blower fan speed.Unclip the resistor out the housing and renew.Your problems should be solved..regards

How do you replace the blower motor on 92 accord wagon - where is it located?


Disconnect the negative battery cable (if you have an anti-theft radio, make sure you have the code).
The blower unit is located in the dash, behind the glove box.
Remove the glove box and the glove box frame(damping screws on the sides and two screws underneath).
If the car isn’t equipped with air conditioning, remove the heater duct between the heater core and the blower assembly housings. Then remove the three blower housing retaining nuts, pull the blower housing out far enough to unplug the electrical connectors (at the lower right edge, right above the kick panel) and remove the blower assembly housing.
If the car has air conditioning, remove the strap bolt, the blower under cover and the three blower housing retaining nuts, then remove the blower assembly as previously described.
If you are replacing the blower motor itself, or either of the blower fan wheels, remove the motor, remove the retaining clip(s) and remove the fan wheel(s).
Reverse procedure to install.
Hope this helps you.

You remove the heater blower by removing the bottom cover of the Glove Compartment. Then you will see The heater blower housing. Then you will see like a black clip you need to lift. Then You simply turn clockwise and bingo its off. To install just do the same thing except in reverse mode. Good Luck!!
