NordicTrack CX 998 resistance not working

My NordicTrack CX998 will not change resistance when I select new resistances from the control panel. The ramp will change its height properly and everything appears ok from the control panel. Just the resistance isnt working. Any suggestions on how to fix this, or how to jury rig it to a specific resistance so it is at least partially usable. It currently is stuck at no resistance. Thanks in advance.

SOURCE: heater blower switch does not

Do you have power to the switch? Do you have power to the fuses? They may not be blown but they may also not have power. Not a likely scenario but possible. First look for power to the switch. No power trace to fuses. Next check if switch is getting power doe switch send power. Does blower motor receive power after you verified that switch has power. Is the switch from the dealer or a/m? Try these things first. If the switch is used than the switch is probably bad. Also there is a resistor on the blower motor that can go bad and that could be the problem.

SOURCE: 2005 chevy colorado the fan

I had this same problem on my 2006 colorado. when i purchased a new resistor and went to replace it, I decided to check the resistance of each position on the old one with the resistance on the new one. they were both the same. then I decided to look at the harness. I was told that it needed to be replaced as well but I decided to try just the resistor. The harness had one of the connections in the plastic connector that looked like it had over heated. (IE browned char like look) after installing the new resistor, it ran ok for about 2 days then started acting up again. Then I tried my own solution. I pulled the harness loose from the resistor and with the ignition and fan switch off took a paper clip and manuevered it under the connection with the charring and slightly bent the metal connector out. when complete, the adjusted connector appeared to be a tad too far out compared to the other connectors in the plastic. then I reconnected it to the resistor and haven't had a problem since. I did, just out of curiosity switch out the new resistor with the old one and it too also works with no problems. Of course, the dealership will not take back electreical parts that have been placed in use. This should have been a chevy recall but apparently they don't care about anything but the initial sale of their products. I sent an email to GM and got to not response.

ABS and T/C lights on dash. Resistance measurement good on left and right wheel speed sensors. Haven't been able to find an ABS and T/C wiring diagram to see what is common to both. circuits.

ABS and traction control both use the wheel speed sensors and are controlled through the same module . What resistance readings did you get ? Did you test AC voltage with the wheel spinning ?

95 toyota camry replace blower motor resistor

The resister puts current to the motor when you change
speeds on switch so if you motor only work in one or two
speeds you no the resister is bad if you put current direct to
motor make sure. It runs if ok change resister thank you and please reply

Heater fan not working on my 2003 cavalier

From your symptoms I would suggest, inspect the Climate Control and the Blower Motor Resister. Locate and remove the resister and test. You are looking for power at the plug (going to the resister). One wire will always be hot (with the ignition key on). The other four wires are ground wires that through the resister, changes the blowers speed. Connect a test-light to 12volts positive, test that the test-light is working, and then start testing for ground. Unplug the resister and test at the plug. With the ignition key on, test each wire. Each wire should light up your test-light depending on the position of the speed control knob. If it passes then plug the resister back in and probe at the blower motor. The blower motor needs both ground and power to run. Find out which is missing and write back. Good luck.

91 Astro Van, Heat/AC Blower not working....replaced switch, fuse, motor

well here's your fix next to the blower motor is the resister that controls the different fan speeds the resister burns out but before getting the new resister unplug the resister as the connectors over heat and at time also need replacement

04 Saturn vue compressor turns off when fan is set to 3 or 4

The problem is the blower motor speed control resistor, it is located near the blower motor in the housing. I exchanged mine and it works like a charm now.

Heater and AC and blower all work fine but it all blows out of defroster vents thats about it , when AC is on it comes out defroster vents,no matter your selection. Heater is the same way.

The HVAC mode selections on these are controlled by an electric stepper motor that receives commands from the BCM (body control module). The BCM decides where the air door should be by looking at where the dash control input is.
Each mode selected has a different resistance level. From low resistance to high resistance: Panel, Bi-Level, Floor, Mix and Defrost, with Defrost as the highest resistance (~100K ohms). A high resistance or open circuit would probably default the system to defrost no matter what position the mode control was set to.
If the control is dirty or there is a connection issue, this could cause this problem. Does playing with the control make any difference?
The BCM can store fault codes with HVAC releated information. The system can be reset and recalibrated with a battery disconnect, this will also erase any fault codes.
I would start by looking at the dash mode control.

Good luck, i hope this helps.

Heater fan no workie

Hi my name is Allen!

If the blower motor is not working the most likely cause is the blower resister, but you must replace the blower motor also because the resistance build-up inside the motor is what damages the resister.

Fuse blows on heat/ac

start with the obvious... you have a short circuit... i presume the fuse you have to keep replacing controls the fan. look under the dash near the fan and look for the resister block that controls the fan... you won't see the actual resisters but you will see wires that plug into the side of the duct work for the vents.... remove the two screws holding that block in and check the condition of the resister block. while you have the part out and unplugged you can easily test if the short is there by putting to fuse back in and seeing if it blows again.
