I can't tell you where is the resistor but usually at maximum speed the switch bypass the resistor pack since there is no need of resistor at full speed, so if the fan stop completely, there is a good chance the fan is blown if it is not working at full speed.

Take a voltmeter and test for voltage at the fan connector with the speed fan switch on, you will be able to test all speed and if you do have voltages the fan is just dead.

Locate the blower motor resistor on a 1999 dodge durango

most resistor blocks bolt to the fan housing, be causes its air cooled
and must be near fan actual so it always is cooled. see?
i just looked,its there. dead center blower case.(fsm book)
log in and read the HVAC pages.
if fan fails on high too, its not the resistor, because on high
it bypassed.
ah but not if the thermofuse in the resistor block is blown

A/c stopped cooling a couple of weeks ago and now the blowers have stopped working too What could be the problem,all fuses are ok.

For the ac to stop working either the compressor clutch is not getting power or the gas is too low so the low pressure switch has switched the compressor off to stop sucking in air through the leak. The blower is controlled by the fan switch which is a 3 positional switch that has a resistor for each position. These resistors have a habit of burning out so the fan will not work. The resistors are in a block located in the blower housing. So you have two faults to fix.

The ac fan motor in my 2011 Peterbilt only works on high......anyone else have this problem ?

I don't even have a 2011 Peterbuilt! ;)
But as in many vehicles when the blower only works in high its due to a bad blower resistor. The resistor is in operation on slower speeds and the motor gets full power and bypasses the resistor on the high speed setting.

As for where it is on a Peterbuilt, again I don't o0wn one so I can't say for sure.
It should be located near the blower motor as it uses the fan blades air to keep it cool.

1995 318i ac fan won't come on

You will probably need to replace the resistor behind the dash. Usually the first symptom is the fan will only blow on high but not on the lower speeds. If that is the case, then the resistor ( cheap fix) is the culprit.

If you just lost it all of a sudden, you should check for a bad fuse and will probably find other things that don't work too. Replace the fuse and watch to see that it doesn't go out again - which if it does, you have a short somewhere that needs to be fixed.

The front htr/ac fan stopped working. The fuse is OK. Any suggestions?

you will have to check the fan motor by supplying power and ground directly to it if it works then you will have to check the blower motor resistor to see its damaged and needs replacing.if the motor doesn`t work then the motor will have to be replaced.the resistor block is located in the air duct near the motor and has about a 5 wire plug on it.its held in with 2 screws and when you pull it out it will have what looks like coils on it.these are the resistors for the different fan speeds.they can`t be repaired only replaced as a complete part(resistor block)

The ac fan has stopped working in my 2002 x5. controls al light up but there is no heat or air. suggestions ? & how to i fix ?

Assuming that you have checked the fuse for the fan, the most common problem is the resistor that controls the fan speed. That has been problematic, and BMW has tried several designs for this resistor. Current design part costs about $55 on line. I don't know where it is mounted on this model, but it will be under the dash near the center somewhere.

Fan selector switch works only on high selection.

This is a typical  symptom of a failed blower resistor. These have multiple taps for the different speeds but the highest speed just bypasses the resistor completely; that is why it still runs full-tilt.
That resistor may or may not be inside the passenger compartment and could be accessible from under the hood, probably mounted on the firewall or under plastic hoods covering part of the heater/AC exchangers.
I'd recommend buying a Haynes or Chilton manual for your car that should cover the location of that part and perhaps give you information on how to best access it. The books are $17-$30 US and available on line or at any auto parts store and will earn their keep pretty quickly.

A/C Fan No-Go - Clarify solution posted by by Jason Wagner

Hi Marc,
I'm not too clear as to which of the two AC fans is not working.....Is it the condenser fan (the one out front of the radiator, mounted at the front of the engine compartment) or the cabin fan?.....either one will stop working in the event of low gas pressure in the AC system.

Is the AC working at all?

The removal of the center consul is not a small job....and to get to the resistor, is also, not very easy....I'm sure that if it is the resistor that has become defective, you'll be able to get one from a breakers yard....They don't usually give problems on the BMW....Incidentally they control the lower speeds of the interior fan operation, but not the high speed, so if the fan works when full and not any other speed, the resistor is the problem.

The fan operation is also fused....A good idea is to check the fuses....

Does the climate control work?

I think I need more clarification and then hopefully I can help a little more....

Best regards Johngee10

Oldsmobile AC resistor location

The blower motor resister is located next to the fan under the passenger side dash. You will have to remove the glove box and plastic cover under the dash to expose the blower motor. the resister is next to the blower motor.
