Question about 2006 Chrysler Sebring

Heater blower not working

I live in at the VA/NC line and we have major snow. I warmed my car up and defrosted the windshield. It worked for a bit the the fan stopped blowing. I have checked the blowers fuse and it is good. What could be wrong? Is the fan gone? What will it take to fix it? Does the dash have to come out? Where do I look to find the blower. HELP. I just got the car about 10 days ago and it only has 25,000. miles on it. I am very upset. I need to understand the cost involved with this fix.

We would not have cost info since pricing depends on your area.
The blower motor is behind the glove box and the dash does not come out to replace it.
A mechanic would check the blower motor for power and ground, then proceed with testing as necessary. It could be the blower motor, or something electrical. There could also be snow frozen in the housing, or something blocking the motor from running.

SOURCE: 2001 Chrysler T&C replacing the front heater blower fan

I just replaced in 2001 dodge grand caravan so I'm assuming they're the same. I own a 2001 Chrylser T&C too. Open the glove box, usually you push in sides of box so it will drop down. You can see how to pop it loose and remove it altogether. The blower motor can be kicked w/ your right foot when you are seated in the passenger side. It has a plastic cover over it. Before you remove anything you can see the plug to blower once the glove box door is removed and you need to unplug the old one and plug in your used one to make sure it works. Mine was used too. I held it in my hand and turned the fan on but dont hold to the rotating wheel. There is a small motor on the tip bottom of the blower cover (smaller than a small jewelry box). It rotates a door inside, between the cover and blower. Remove about 2 screw to remove it first. Then You can remove 4 or 5 screws to remove cover. (my cover wouldnt come off and I thought I missed a screw in the back I couldnt find. I kept pulling and eventually the plastic cracked and released but appeared to be just stuck.) Be careful removing the cover b/c you might break that rotating door! Once removed you can see bottom of blower. Only about 4 screws hold it on. You can see where the plug runs thru rubber gasket and into the resistor that you plugged the replacement into earlier. Its time consuming to maneauver the blower into its spot' especially around that hanging rotating door. My resistor was bad and had melted the plug to it. I ordered it from auto zone for $25. Only 2 screws hold it in. The replacement looks nothing like the old one I removed. But it worked! Hint---to the left of the blower is a hidden door facing down that slids open and a filter slides down out of. It filters the a/c air and is to be replaced about 15k miles. Keeps it from being musky air. Do all this while your standing on your head in the floor board.
I'm a mom (loan officer) and I figured it out, so I know you can.

SOURCE: blower fan has stopped working except on high

The motor still works. A DC motor is speed controlled with a resistor. Luckily, the resistors that do this are mounted on the motor housing. See the following link. The resistor pack is quoted as costing about $10.

SOURCE: help 2005 chrysler pacifica heater and defroster

Your blend door actuator may have packed up. My manual says you have dual controls--true? If yes, is it cold on both sides?

Remove the silencer from beneath the driver side end of the instrument panel and take a look at the actuators. #4 and #6 are for the blend doors. Can you see if the little axle is rotating when you change the temp setting? If you can't tell, take one off and see if you can rotate the door by hand and get warm air to come out. If not, perhaps you have air in the cooling system. Check your coolant level and refill if needed. Then let's have a discussion about where your coolant may be leaking. OK?

1970 vw beetle windshield defroster no hot air

Does the heater blower motor work? If it does and the heater works, then the passage from the heater to the windshield must be not open. Real old-school, it is probably cable operated for defrost.
If the blower motor is not blowing air, it is an electrical problem with the motor. Would help to have a voltmeter. Do you?

How do I get the windshield & the windows defrosted? What buttons do I press?

Does your heater fan turn on? If not, could be a fuse, could be fan motor, could be wiring connections. If heater fan works then defroster switch may be the problem, or connections to the switch, or again a fuse. Temperature controls may have some effect. Usually, defrost needs heat to work well. The engine needs to warm up.

Weak heat at best

you may have a problem with the heater core flap that allows coolant into the core. seems like there is just not enougg coolant going through the core. check to make sure the heat/cool selector is working properly.

1993 jeep cherokee country blower stuck on defrost.

Sounds like a VAC. Line came off or is cracked, a vacuum leak causes the heater to go into default mode( defrost ) for safety reasons...

My front defroster is not working at its best, however the back one is working properly. If I add any heat while trying to defrost my windows the problem get worst.

Sounds like the heater core is leaking coolant. If it is leaking it will blow steam out of defrost vents and fog the windshield. Symptoms: low coolant level in radiator, steam coming out vents when engine is warmed up, odor of anti-freeze coming out of vents, wet carpet in floorboard near heater blower motor.
If so, replace heater core.

Windshield wiper on car iced up during snow/driving could not see

You can usually avoid that by using a good quality winter mix washer fluid that resists freezing, making sure the wipers are cleared of ice before beginning the drive and using the defroster to keep the windshield warm. In extreme conditions you just need to pull over and manually clean the ice off by hand.(only do that where it's safe). There are also specially designed wiper blades that will also help a bit.

My 2009 Grand Caravan's front windshield defrost isn't working

We have a 2008(same body) with the same issue. Just got back from the Dodge dealer and they said "they're all like like that" #@!& Not a good answer as we live in Syracuse NY home of 150inches of snow/season! Last year the right side wiper blade broke off because it kept getting hooked on the ice in that corner of the windshield. Chrysler should offer a fix of some kind because it effects the visibility of the entire windshield and is dangerous!!! The dealer said the other vents (set of 3 squarish ones) are actually for speakers on some models but they are in a lower/better position to heat the bottom of the windsheild and look like they should be able to have warm air run through them.
I think I'm going to double face tape a small strip of black plastic above the current vents to deflect some of the warm air to the lower edge of the windshield.
If anyone else has a better fix please post.
Freexing in Syracuse!

Defroster blowing snow inside car

Not really a solution but, check that blend door in heater box is operating and that a/c drain hose is not plugged. (if there is ice in there, it may take a while to clear it out)

Air only blows on defrost (windshield)

Check vacuum lines on firewall for leak, check all vacuum lines if one on fire wall is ok , doors work off vacuum
