No front heat/fan but rear heat/fan works fine.

Was working last time it was driven a week ago, cannot find a fuse for blower motor in either fuse block ( front & rear ) and the rear heat works fine but nothing up front.

Good luck with this one....

It has the "3 wire blower motor" in the engine compartment? If yes, then 2 wires should be power and the other one ground. The front blower motor always has power going to it. I think its a "maxi fuse" near the battery. I am TOTALLY going off memory here, so take it with caution.

I am pretty sure if you take a test light across the outer 2 wires with the unit disconnected, it should light up because there is power and ground. The center wire is a little more tricky. With the blower motor disconnected, there should not be power on the center wire, if there is power suspect the HVAC programmer under the passenger side of the dash (aluminium box). Now, with the blower motor plugged in, there should be power on the center wire with, or without, the key on. If you do not have power on the center wire, and have power on the other wire, along with a ground, with the blower plugged in, then you need a blower motor. I know its expensive, but the programmer is considerably more, so consider yourself lucky if you only need a blower motor.

This is because the blower resistor is integrated with the blower motor (and some kind of solid state device at that). One of the wires is an output of 12VDC, I am remembering the center wire, but I think it is thinner than the other 2. When the car is running, and the blower is commanded on, the HVAC programmer grounds the center wire, with PWM, to turn on the blower motor.

Now, if with the blower motor connected, there are 2 powers and a ground, you most likely need an HVAC programmer. I have only seen instrument clusters go bad like maybe once or twice in the 15 years I have worked on Cadillac's. I assume the climate controls are part of your instrument cluster, different years may have a separate unit for the HVAC controls.

If this diagnostics lead to the HVAC programmer, an aluminium box under the passenger side of the dashboard, then I want you to try a couple of things first....

1) Unplug all the connectors on the Programmer, count to 15 and plug them back in. I think it has 2, or maybe 3 connectors. Don't bother unplugging the vacuum lines, they suck if I remember correctly. If it now works, then GREAT stop there and prosper....

2.) One time, on a 97 - 99 Deville, which is a totally different chassis, i had a blown fuse in the rear electronics bay ( the front of the trunk under the vertical carpet that covers the backseat). The fuse was not on a single diagram for the HVAC, but somehow replacing this fuse solved my front blower motor problem. Please check all the fuses. I do not know if your car has a rear electronics bay, or if you just have fuses under the carpet by the tail lights, in the engine compartment, and under the dash on the drivers side of the car, but please check them all with a test light. Even though this car is old, it is still complicated.


Sorry to be long winded. I really hope this helps.....

Have you tried smacking the blower motor? If it starts running after you hit it, replace it.

My thought would be around the fuses. Pop off the fuse cover located on the side of the dash board on the driver side. There is a fuse that controls the blower motors and such. Attached is a picture of the fuse lay out, you will want to replace the one labeled HTR/AC and see if that helps

2004 Chrysler Pacifica Blower won't work


Usally when a blower motor resistor goes bad the fan still runs on high. The resistor lowers the voltage going to the fan to make it run slower. The high setting usually goes straight thru. Resistors are usually easy to get to, under good on the firewall or under dash passenger side. Cost about $24 at parts store. Replace with new if that doesn't work return it.

I have a 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager. Last week, the rear blower stopped working and the brake lights no longer function. All other lights work. The front blower works just fine. All fuses are...


The rear blower and the brake lights might not be related troble. The rear blower has a ballast resistor that can fail and it's next to the blower motor in the rear heater housing. The blower motors are also known to go bad so wrapping on it with it turned on might( wake it up) and it'll start woring again as a poor connection shaken or the worn motors brushes shaken down where they make connection again. Then you say the rest of the lights work do you mean that the brake light bulbs come on with the hazard swich entergized? or do the rear lights just light yellow turn lights only? I'd check or even replace the brake light buld=bs before I'd do anything else.their are other things that don't work if the fuses were involved and the same goes for the heater rear blower as the front blower uses the same fuse.
