Air/heater wont shut off


If the blower motor won't shut off, pull the blower motor relay in under hood fuse box. That should kill it till you find the problem. I don't know if you have automatic hvac or manual hvac?
Can you check for hvac trouble codes? Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free.
If blower motor wiring connector has both voltage and ground, it will run as long as the battery has voltage.
I saw two different wiring diagrams on your blower motor, I don't know which one applies?

Usually, it's a door motor on the heater case that's stuck/broken. Is this an automatic HVAC system or a manual system?

My radiator on my 83 honda 750nighthawk wont shut down it keeps running and drains my battery what do you think the problom is


The fan will run after you shut off the key until the temperature is lowered enough.It might have a bad relay then that keeps power on the fan. Or, the thermostat might be bad.
I don't know where these things are, but you can trace where the wires go.

Careful, because the fan can always come on and off even with the key off.
Hope this helps.

Hvac blower will not shut off, even when vehicle is shut off and key is out of the ignition


Hi, the likely problem is a shorted blower relay. Unfortunately, your relay is integrated into the motor/resistor assembly, so you would need to replace the whole thing to fix it. You can disable the blower high setting by pulling out the IGN3 fuse under the hood, but I'm not sure the car will run without that fuse. At least you wouldn't have to disconnect the battery to keep it from draining. Please let me know if you would like procedures to replace the blower motor assembly, and thanks for using FixYa.

I have 1989 300e mercedes. If i drive and let sit overnight it will not start. Battery dead. I replaced the battery and alternator. If i charge battery for less than 5 minutes it will crank and start up....


Do the fans run properly and shut off when cars is off? If not they may be draining the battery. A bad stock antenna could drain battery because of the control module. Also the central locking pump if it keeps running (its supposed to shut off after 30 seconds) but if it fails it will drain the battery.

Disconnect each system 1 by 1 or pull fuses 1 by 1 to find out. I would believe its your neutral safety switch tho. Its on the transmission.

88 cadillac deville, ac blower fan wont shut off, even when car is turned off and key removed. I tried disconnecting the battery to reset the system but it still runs when battery reconnected. Also, car...


Ralph,
Most common cause of this is the blower fan (proper name for the fan you refer to) continuing to run is a shorted out Electronic Climate Control Module. This solid state device replaces the older style fan speed resistor block (at about 4 times the price) This unit is found on the top of the HVAC box under the hood. (HVAC means heating, ventilation and air conditioning) The HVAC box is found on the passenger side of the firewall. Look behind the A/C's accumulator. It will have an electrical wiring plug on top of it. It will be fastened to the HVAC box with a few 7mm hex head screws. Very easy to change.
FYI, do yourself a favor and replace the blower fan motor at the same time. The Electronic Climate Control Module usually fails because the motor is drawing to many amps of current. This is because it's bushings are worn out or the brushes are worn out.
This is very common on Cadillacs and Buicks.
Charlie
PS Not sure why car won't start. Either you drained the battery or blew a fuse which controls starting the engine. Need more info regarding the "no start" condition.

The A/C fan in my 04 Grand Prix will NOT shut off.


CLICK HERE for a schematic of your blower.

Your blower is not shutting off - so your BMCP (Blower Motor Control Processor) has malfunctioned... or the HVAC Control Module has failed.

Both provide power to the blower motor.

To check which one has failed - pull the HVAC control fuse RADIO/HVAC/RFA/CLSTR/ALDL (15Amp) and see if the fan shuts off - if not - try the BMCP fuse HI/BLWR (30Amp) - Both are listed listed at the top of the schematic.
