Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Blower (a/c & heat) stopped working on 2008 Pontiac Vibe. No heat or a/c.

I turned on my car this morning, turned the heat to level 1-2, and nothing happens. I turn it up to 3, then 4 (highest setting), and still nothing. I know it was working last night. Anyhow, i pull and check a couple a/c related fuses, they look fine, so i reinstall them. Confused, i turn the car back on and suddenly it works.... I fixed/replaced NOTHING, so i feel like this is bound to happen again. Any idea what might be my problem?

Could be a bad connection at one of the fuses, or a coincidence and has nothing to do with the fuses. It could be the blower motor, resistor, or a connection somewhere.
You would need to check the blower fuse for power with a meter and then the blower motor when it fails to run.

SOURCE: car won't turn over

Neutral safety switch may be going bad or is out of adjustment. Switch is on the transmission under the shift linkage ear where shift cable attaches. Loosen it and put car in reverse (not running) turn switch so that reverse lights come on. semi-tighten switch and check that it starts in both park and neutral. If not you need to change the switch.

SOURCE: No AC, heat, or vent

its sounds like the Blower speed controller, its located under the hood on the heater case. reach down a wiggle the connector, its under the heater hoses and attached to the case. If it starts the blower fan working get it replaced as it has a bad board.

I have a 2004 Vibe that had a similar problem. The blower fan switch uses a circuit board down near the firewall inside the car. Small hands are required but just two screws hold it in.You can get them at Toyota cheaper than GM.

On my wife's 2008 Pontiac Vibe, the heater fan does not come on. No one remembers it stopping, but when I drove it yesterday, it was not working at all. I have checked any related fuses, and they are...

it could be a bad blower motor resister that controls fan speed depending on what fan setting you have set the dash switch could also be the blower motor itself that needs to be replaced.with the blower on try tapping the motor and see if it tries to start.if it tries or starts to work then the motor will need replacing.
