Question about 2000 Saturn L-Series

Saturn HVAC Blower Stopped Working

The HVAC blower became intermittent for about 15 minutes then just stopped working.

I've read the post at:
http://www.fixya.com/cars/t1580493-hvac

I pulled out the blower motor - measured well less than 1 Ohm across the blower contacts.

I measured the voltage across the wire harness connectors to the blower, but even with the switch turned on - I didn't see any voltage on several switch settings. Unfortunately I can't recall if I put the switch all the way to high or not.

Reconnected the wire harness to the blower and tried again - still no movement.

Pulled out the hvac console to clean the contacts on the fan speed switch - boy are those some pesky tabs to pry apart at times! Contacts on the switch didn't look bad, cleaned them a little they look fine now. Placed it back in the dash.

Still not working.

I've looked at the location of the 'resistor card' in the diagram, but I guess I'll have to see if look up underneath the passenger side will even allow me to see the resistor card screws (then I can consider what flex tool I'll need to buy to get them).

What measurements can I take to isolate the problem?
To the resistor card?

If the resistor card is bad you will only have setting 4 high on the blower and no other speeds, the resistor card is under the passenger side glove box by the center console way up there, i think its a phillips head,if i remeber right not too hard to get to,,, if no high speed then the fan motor is bad,thats under the wiper cowl under the hood,u gotta remove the wiper cowl to replace it

2003 trailblazer blower not working


Are you saying the blower motor would run intermittently and then just stopped working? My first thought is faulty blower motor, I've seen faulty blower motors that would run intermittently. Any motor that uses brushes, you can tap on the motor to see if it will start working, that is a sign of bad motor brushes, replace the blower motor. There could be other issues?
Did you check the blower fuse, not only check the fuse, check the fuse circuit for voltage, use a test light. Check for applicable hvac trouble codes. With hvac on, check for voltage and ground at blower motor wiring connector, if both are good and no blower action, suspect the blower motor.

2003 ION my blower for heat just stopped working.


If 30A RUN (IGN 3) FUSE 48 in the underhood fuseblock is OK, there may be failure of the run relay or run relay control logic in the body control module, the HVAC fan switch in the HVAC control head or the blower motor resistor assembly.

HVAC BLOWER STOPPED WORKING


The noise can mean several things. It could be a bearing noise or something worked its way into the ductwork and jammed the motor. Without this noise, Ford products had problems with the blower motor resistor and that would be another prime candidate for failure.
You can take the blower motor out and have it benchchecked for electric problems.

HVAC Blower stopped working


The fuse you replaced powers the hvac control. The run relay is powered by a 30amp fuse in the fuse box near the battery.
Is the relay getting power from that 30amp fuse ?

2001 T&C LXi - front blower fan is working intermittently


Hello! to answer your question; No...The intermittent operation is more than likely being caused by loose or oxidized contacts in the motor connector plug...Blower motor switch connector or the blower motor resistor plug...go to Radio Shack and purchase a product called DeOxit...cost $15...It's a two spray can package...A cleaner and contact protector spray...Cans are small you do not need much...Spray all three plugs; both male and female pins...You will notice a bubbling action...No wiping off...This is a no touch spray...This should clear up the problem...On the blower switch plug is a Black/Orange wire which goes to ground...Using an ohmmeter check this wire for zero ohms to ground...On the X10 scale...If you do not read zero ohms...The connection of this wire needs to go to bare metal chassis ground...

The HVAC blower motor intermittent failure. some times on and quits after a short. Sometimes no problems at all!


Could be the dash fan switch, or the blower resistor pack, or the blower itself, or a loose connector.

The HVAC blower fan on my 2001 Pontiac Aztec stopped working on settings 1-3 several weeks ago. Last week it stopped working at setting 4 and today it stopped working all together. What is the most likely...


the blower not working on settings 1-3 is the blower motor resistor. this limits the power provided to the blower motor itself to change the speed. at setting 4 it is getting full power. since it quit on 4 also, i would still say the resistor needs to be replaced first, then see if the blower comes back. you may also need a blower motor. if you have a voltmeter you can just turn the switch to 4 and see if the motor is still getting 12 volts. if it is and doesn't run, it needs a blower motor too. if it's not, then its just the resistor
