Question about Honda Cars & Trucks
My heater blower motorstopped turning on. i replaced the resister and it worked for two days. thismorning, the blower motoer would not come on but got hot and there was a terrible smell like the ac was matbe leaking some kind of gas. it got down to 10 degrees (f) last night but i do know it had good antigfreeze.
No year, stated, nor model car. no engine size or country.
there are lots of honda back to 1973, just a clue here.
if the heater blower stalled it can burn up.
what info, easy, the FSM , no FSM work blind
or use alldata.com , login and read, it .
smell from where, under hood or dash, gee?
the new resistor will stick until burned in, they smell like hot metal
and are. it just nichrome wire resistor and run very hot.
and are air cooled so the resistor dont burn up.
so a shop would make sure the motor (fan) is good first.
and make sure current is not over 15amps. motors can in fact
partially short and draw too much current not just go dead.
then the resistor, not first.
"but got hot" what got hot,. the cab air exiting the vents, the motor fan
or the what?
a dead fan, motor, check the motor, apply 12vdc to fan like the FSM shows and test the motor, if it spins fast,. check current.
ones that suck too much current run a little too slow. so.......

SOURCE: heater not working
The problem is probably the blower motor resistor. I'm not sure where yours is located exactly. They can be on the firewall under the hood or some are near the blower motor under the dash.

sounds like you need to look through the engine bay and see if your fuel lines are wet anywhere!! There might be a possibilty that you have a leak around the gas tank so jus crawl under the trunk and look to see if it has any kind of wetness around the tank or hoses coming out of the tank!!

THE BLEND DOOR THAT CONTROLS HOT TO COLD SWITCHING IS STICKING. THE CONTORL HEAD IS ELECTRIC AND MAY BE CAUSING THE PROBLEM. HEAT AND AC ARE 2 COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SYSTEMS EXCEPT FOR THE CONTROLLER UNDER YOUR RADIO. HEATER COIL IS REALLY A HEATER CORE WHICH IS A LITTLE RADIATOR INSIDE THE CAR BEHIND THE DASHBOARD.
