1998 S10 ABS light on, blower motor and wiper motor quit working


Sounds like your computer got wet. Could also be a bad battery, make sure you do a load test and check it. Any auto parts store will check it for free.

My a/c went out on my 99 mercury cougar but that was because my a/c compressor went out. My heat was working after that and then it went out too. I thought it was my blower motor so i bought a new one....


You have two other components that control the blower, the control switch and the blower resistor block. The switch is the knob you turn to select the speed and will cause you loose power to the next component that is the resistor block. This part is usually next to the blower motor because it needs to be cooled by the fan and it is responsible for the different fan speeds. Either component can cause a total loss of the blower fan. Go to a online parts lookup like autozone.com and it will show you a picture of the parts so you can identify them.

2005 Trailblazer EXT. Blower speed control not working...


Problem with blower motor is the blower motor resistor. They are usually located next to the blower motor, a couple of screws and a couple of plugs and your done. Autozone sells them for around $30 each. Wipers you may want to check for relays under the hood in the fuse block. There may be 2 relays 1 for low and 1 for high. I have switched relays from other working accesories and got wipers to work. Sometimes bad connection.

2001 dodge caravan, intermittent part of the wipers do not work


As the intermittent wipers are based on resistance, try the easiest fixes first:1. Disconnect the negative terminal on the battery. Pull the relays for the blower motor and both wiper relays and the 30 amp fuse for the wipers. These are located under the hood in the fuse/relay box. The best way is to be careful and use a set of pliers. The reason you pull the blower relay is so that it is easier to pull the intermittent relay. Clean these off the blades of the relay with a burnishing tool (in a pinch you can use your wife's nail polisher that is like very fine sandpaper. Once the are a pretty silver color, wipe them off with some rubbing alcohol. Put them in and pull them out about 5 times into the relay socket and leave them in. Clean the blades for the fuse with a cue tip and rubbing alcohol and then put the fuse in and pull it out about 5 times then leave it in. Hook up the negative terminal and take the key to the on position and turn the wiper to the lowest position. If it works if should take about 36 seconds between strokes. 2. The next easiest is taking the cover off the top of the steering column and pulling off the wiper switch and replacing it. There are three screws that hold the cover and two that hold the switch plus the electrical connector. You can buy a used one at a "junk yard" for about $20. 3. Replace the wiper motor (takes about a couple of hours start to finish). It involves removing the wipers, the cowl (plastic cover over the wiper motor right below the windshield), loosening and lifting the scissor arms for the wiper arms and removing the motor (this involves disconnecting the power connector and feeding it back to the motor).Hopefully your issue is like 95% of the wiper issues and it is just a little bit of corrosion on the wiper relays and fuse!

1992 cutlass ciera ac/heater blower motor not even trying to work. pulled all fuses and checked. straight- wired motor and it runs fine. is there a relay for this thing? and where would it be located?


I can elaborate on this also. I have a 1992 Oldsmobile Ciera with 157k miles.

The blower motor had been losing it's bearings for a while and really lost them about a week ago. I bought a new blower motor; installed it (which can be done by loosening the power steering assembly by removing a couple lower bolts underneath the power steering resevoir. One is a "double hex bolt" which a nut, then 3 ground wires, then another hex head which will remove this bolt.) Also you need to remove a stabilizer bar the is connecting between the p/s pump and the rear cylinder head. Removing these bolts should allow the power steering assembly to be moved toward the front of the car, giving enough clearance to remove the blower motor.

We installed the new blower motor, tested it, it worked, but the relay started clicking like crazy. It was the second relay from the left on my car; you can tell which one is for the blower motor by lookign at the color of the wire going into the blower motor and looking beneath the relay panel for the same colored wire (on my car it was purple).

We put it all back together, went to test it again and it wasnt working. We then went and bought a new relay, which restored the blower to working condition. 2 minutes after we left again, it blew the relay. We then exchanged the obviously faulty blower motor, and purchased a new relay, and the car was restored to 100% functional.


In this person's case, it sounds like they just need a relay, but I just wanted to elaborate to help get this information more readily available. I feel like it would have helped me if I had it before I tried this repair. (which we got down to about a 15 minute job after the 3 times we had to do it)

1995 nissan sentra blower motor issues


Well, you need a new blower motor. You have maybe just a few brushes broke or badly worn so it still tries to operate. Brushes are worn/broken so the weight of the motor with squirrel cage up prevents rotation but, on it's side there's less weight so it's able to turn. I had the same problem --I have owned my 95 Nissan Sentra for almost 14 years at 246,000 it is still the most dependable vehicle I have owned.
