Question about 1999 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

Heat NOT blowing out ANY air consistently!!

We switched out the resistor to see if it was a simple quick fix, but it still only works very randomly (though blows perfectly hot air when functioning). Is this the blower motor or possibly an electrical issue?

Can be blower motor easy to test --remove it look for imbalance by spinning to check bearing smoothness / freeplay . Hook up ground then use inline fuse connector with lower than fuse panel ## number of fuse -- find power Eg .car battery -- be sure to ground then connect Fan to visually see it spin .. NOW if you have any type of electronic dash mounted controls for heat / air conditioning - most likely electrical issue is in it . you said blower motor does sometimes function - Test wires that plug in to it for power / find groung then probe by test light when in heat mode = switch to air cond mode if fan functions then problem in controls on dash .. if no test light reaction search wires for short or damage .. As FUNNY as it sounds I have pulled mouse nest out of GM heater fans - They access parked vehicle by drain hole inner fender well it drains water from wiper blade / heater vent area .

SOURCE: Where is the blower motor resistor on a 2003 Chevy Malibu

Remove the shroud below glove box, 2 screws and a snap-pop fitting. Be careful of the courtesy light. Remove the blower moter and disconnect the purple/black power connector to it - - you'll need this extra room to work with. 2 more screws, same size, 6.5mm on mine, 7or 8mm on some others, that holds the blower motor resistor in place. This replacement part is less than 40 bones at most parts store. Unplug, replace, re-install, test and you're on your way with about 2 hours of slow paced effort in your own driveway. Typical cost at a garage - up to $400, what a sham.

How do you fix the air conditioner fan on a 2005 jeep liberty that only blows on high?

Likely there is nothing wrong with the fan itself, but you will need to replace the switch that controls it. That should solve the problem.

204 Dodge Stratus Heat and Air Stopped all together

A Blower motor fuse could be the problem. Check your owners manual for the fuse box panel location...also the fuse purpose will be illustrated in the manual...hope this helps. As it is just a fuse replacement to fix it...still keep an eye on the function...if it blows the fuse again, you will need an electrical check for a short....Any other info would be helpful.

My 2004Kia Spectra will not blow out heat or air

Sounds like the fan is not working. Does it blow air on any setting? If only on high, your resistor is faulty. If not, the motor, switch or fuse/relay may be at fault. Check these out first!!

2002pontiac montana incab filters have been removed will this affect outside air coming in or prevent incab heater air circulation switch from working

If your fan only works on high setting then your blower motor resistor is not working. Google replacement if blower resistor for your car and they are usually a quick and easy fix.

No heat/no air blowing in 2000 Pontiac GTP 3.8L. Also coolant light and check engine light randomly come on and go off. We tried replacing the resistor which was a nightmare and didn't fix it. Then...

The blower no blowing, you replaced the resistor and the motor so the only thing left is a fuse or the switch,also the resistor is the main problem and is easy to replace are you sure you replaced the correct resistor and the connection to resistor was good and not melted, the resistor is located next to the blower in heaterbox if thats the one then you must have a bad fuse or switch, use a testlight and check for power at the motor,the low coolant is a problem with these the switch in the radiator goes bad and tells you coolant is low when in fact its not, the main problem is the coolant gets oily due to an intake leak, look inside the rad and the resivoir and if its oily then flush it out and have intake gaskey changed,this is the greasey stuff you are seeing,as far as the engine light you will need to have the computer scanned to get the codes, these codes will help in telling you why the light is coming on, there are many autopart stores that will scan it for free and if you rewrite me with the cars info and the codes i will help you further,also heres a picture of the resisitor just want to make sure its what you replaced because thatusally the problem, maybe the blower that was bad blew a fuse or the new resisitor went bad,hope this helps.johnjohn2_54.jpg

Blower on heat/a not working

So it works with a/c but doesn/t work with heat. Is that what your saying?
Or it blows cold air on heat selection?

If it blows but only blows cold air on heat selection
check out the following items:
temperature selector switch
blend door actuator and motor.

Here are a list of items to check out or have a shop inspect if it doesn't blow anything at all.
a) on/off switch
b) relay
c wiring
d) resistors
e) blower motor

The Heat/Vent fan is not turning on

it can be simple and cheap to repair if the problem appear to be less gas but it also can be a problem with the air compressor which make in it a little bit expansive.
