TOP OF LIST IS test fuSe, good looking ones test bad sometimes.
we use a voltmeter in the live circuit to test fuse.

what does Not working mean.
a: it wont blow air. but can hear it run. (sounds ok)!
b: it's silent, and sure is dead. can;t blow, dead.
which one? pretend im not there, and please say, all these details.

WHICH SYSTEM OPTIONS?" factory installed options,???????
which one, front or AUX? this car coame with front and rear systems.
2 blowers, as an option, we cant see it, so you must say so.
same with does it have the CLIMATE control options, ???
Electrics 101.:
The blower in the dash needs 12vdc to spin.
its just an electric motor, a very simple device
it takes only that to make it work.
and fails only for 3 reasons.
1: blower is dead, hot wire it, dead now means its dead. if it runs hot wired its NOT bad.
2: bad wires to blower bad, or if it has resistor block that bad.
3: controller bad.

bad wires includes bad wire connectors. (same deal )

to find this cause, takes only a voltmeter.
found in all DMM meters ever sold, get one and check the voltage.
1: at motor.
2: leaving the controller.

just 2 or 3 checks with this meter and BEHOLD, the CAUSE.
since i dont know the answer to question a or b: above,
i can not work your problem.

if all this is complex. hell it is, look at the chapter in the FSM
it is complex. and with the AUX and the climate controls
big time complex. (fancy cars are like that , lots of complexity.)
we never work on complex system with out the FSM
or the account.
why would we, no 2 cars are the same.

the Climate control system might cut the blower for many reasons.
if it in fact did.

buy the FSM read HVAC pages.
login to read same.
now ask questions for tests stated in the books.

the books even show you where to put the meter leads.
photos !
and are 100% worth the price of admission. I promise.

The speedo is electronic, u will have to pull the unit out and send it to a GM authorized repair center like speed-o-tach inc.

SOURCE: 2005 GMC Envoy SLE blower fan speed #5 is not working

More than likely this should just be your resistor. You have different sized coils on the back of your resistor for all the different fan speeds. if one of them burns out or breaks then that certain speed will not work.

I would check the resistor which is next to the blower and check for power on both fan and resister. Let see what you find.

The fan for the heater right? If so, for the autoclimate control you need to replace the blower motor countrol module. If it's manual controls, replace the blower motor resistor assembly.

My 2006 GMC Envoy heater fan has stopped working. I checked the switch and it is good. I didn't know how to get to motor itself to check it there. Any suggestions?

The blower motor is located behind the glove box. Open the glove box and at the left rear is a wire catch mechanism, push on this and the box will move further down. The motor and blower motor resistor module can be accessed here. Does the blower work on any of the speeds? If yes, then suspect the resistor module. If no, check for a blown fuse or bad motor.

2005 GMC Envoy XL High Speed Blower not working

if the other speeds work it is probably the blower resistor; if applies varying resistance to the voltage running the blower; this allows the fan to run at different speeds; should be located very close to the blower motor; behind a panel under the passenger side of the dash
