I've been with Toyota 25 years before retiring in 2008-I have never had no power to blower motor-the only thing is low speed inop cause burn't resistor-motor occasionally dies & or gets stuck with mouse nests/Kleenex from glovebox. If you are sure it's not getting power then1 of those things may have blown a fuse(don't ask me which or shorted(very rare) I'm thinking it's a salvage car and then anything is possible-all you can do is get a scematic/tester and start tracing pos/neg back from blower. Good Luck-John T

When you say blower motor you mean the motor that blows heat into the cabin inside the vehicle not the cooling fans for the radiator. I ask because mention relays /more then 1
I find that with blower motors its usellyI not the motor or resistor .The motor will spin with no bearings left in it will make a lot of noise but spin .The resistor olny on most vehicles comes into play on high speed setting olny .
The most common problem is bad connections to the motor it self 9 out of 10 times .Turn the key to run don't start but the fan control on high start wiggleing the connector and the wires around if the motor starts to spin this is the problem .
If not that 1 out of 10 times is likely related to the INT control switch eighter the switch is not being feed power or the switch is shorted inside .
Do you have a test light HOT to GROUND or a muility meter if so you can test for voltage to the connector that plugs into the control switch .No voltage then the problem is fearther back in the system .
Problems like this need some though before things are replaced . You need a starting point a basic understanding of how the circuit works . You start replaceing things to early you end up lost .
Try the wiggleing connector thing its likely your problem.

SOURCE: I?ve had many blower fan motor failures in such a short time?

the car operate nothing more than 12V systems. your alternator will also put out same amount of voltage to recharging the battery. there is no step up transformer in the vehicle to get more than 12V maybe a bit more but will be way under 13V, since it happened to the same car and type, I would say its the manufacture default. Ive have experienced same issue like yours on new parts, my suggestion is to change the brand. some manufacture after market company will build them as cheap as possible cutting corners to save cost. Inside of the motor what common parts fail is the contact brush, it can short or burn out over times, sound like what ever that manufacture are using is fairly cheap. since it happened to both car putting out the same amount of voltage my guess would be manufacture problems otherwise your radio and computers (ECU) will also be affected if the car somehow putting out more than 12V.

SOURCE: replaced resistor, blower motor still does'nt work

Check to see if there is power at the plug for the blower motor, if so, the motor is probally bad.

you know the thing has run 400k miles, that is 300k past it designed life. break down and buy a new fan for it, it will set you back about 60 bucks. if you can replace the resistor, you can change the fan. a new set of plugs, plug wires, and a set of tires may be warranted as well.

SOURCE: 2001 sequoia front ac blower not working, blower motor is OK

Sounds like a Controller Issue with the Climate Control. Seeing that you applied power and it worked, then it is not the Motor.

UNLESS you try it on ALL SPEEDS and if it then does not work, you have an Input problem.

If it only works on ONE SPEED, then you have a Resister Issue for the Blower

I have a 2000 Taurus SES. Recently, the A/C blower stopped working. I have checked the blower motor fuse, and the blower motor coil fuse, and they both look good. Also, I have replaced the blower motor...

You don't say if it is climate control or manual. Either way, the relay gets power from two fuses, a 10amp for the relay and a 40amp for the actual motor. Did you check them with a meter to see if they have power with the key switch on ?
The relay sends power to the motor. The resistor and fan switch provide the ground circuit for the motor.
Does the motor have power and will it run if you jumper the ground circuit to the body ?

Blower motor

I'm showing a blower relay and a resistor used on models with manual ac control.
The blower motor is grounded and the fan switch provides power thru the resistor. So you have a 40amp blower fuse that handles high thru the relay, then a 30amp HVAC fuse that powers the blower thru the fan switch.
Do you not have power from the resistor to the blower motor on the purple wire ?

I don't have a diagram for a 2008. On 2005 models the blower motor relay gets power from a 30amp fuse.
When the blower switch is in the high position the resistor is bypassed and power flows directly to the motor. The motor is grounded to the car.
The fan relay also gets power from a 7.5amp fuse and is controlled by the HVAC control on the dash.
Do you have power into and out of the relay?

1995 GMC Sierra fan blower not working.

In the beginning you should check for voltage and ground.
The 50amp fuse marked AC powers the blower motor and the motor is grounded.
The high speed relay bypasses the resistor. So you should have power coming from the fuse and thru the high relay. Then the resistor for the other speeds gets power from the heat and ac control module which also controls the blend doors.
You may need a shop manual or repair book to get the diagrams.

No power showing for the ground wire for fan blower motor in 2003 Dodge Caravan se

very confused with diagnostics of this motor

if power was going to earth ..the fuse or relay would blow ..blower motor would spin
if it blows the fan fuse or relay something is wrong with the on /off switch for the blower
picture is the 2003 heater system

if no better make up a new earth wire to chassis for the blower motor

Blower motor resistor

Locate the blower motor and look around the outside and close to the motor for a 2-by-3-inch plate held on by two or four small screws. There will be an electrical connector plugged into it with five or six wires, depending on the vehicle type and heating and air conditioning type of control panel.
Test the resistor before replacing it. It is always recommended to test any electronic unit before replacing because there are a multitude of things that could cause the same symptoms. It only takes a few minutes and can qualify the assumption that a part is bad. It will save money to replace or repair the right part the first time.
Check the speeds by turning the fan conrol to all positions. Take note which fan speeds work and which speeds do not work. If the fan works only on one speed the blower motor resistor is very likely bad.

Check the fuses if the fan speeds do not work. The fuses for the interior heating and air conditioning fan are usually under the hood in the fuse and relay center. If the fuse looks good, then take it out and turn the ignition key on and use the volt meter set at 20 volts DC. Check to make sure that there is voltage to the fuse. If not, check for an open circuit to the fuse.

Check the relay to determine if there is power at the fuse. The relay should have two of the four terminals showing power. With the key on and the fan turned on, remove the relay and put it back in, listening for it to click. If it does not click, then replace the relay.

Check the voltage at the electrical connector on the blower motor resistor to see if the fuse and relay are good. Make sure that power is present at the connector with the key on and the fan switch on. There should be power at two terminals of the blower motor resistor. If only one terminal has power, replace the resistor. If two terminals have power, replace the blower motor itself. Remove the screws and unplug the connector to remove the blower motor resistor. Put the new one in its place by screwing it back in and plugging in the wiring connector.

Where is the blower motor relay on the 1994 Ford Econoline. The fan is going one speed - SLOW. I replaced the blower motor, because it was squealing, but that never solved the problem. I'm thinking it's...

On your vehicle, if it works on low speed, that eliminates the fuse, the blower motor relay and the blower motor resistor. All of the parts of the resistor must bee good for it to work on low. The relay supplies power to the motor and the controls provide the ground, so if the motor runs at all, it is not the relay or the fuse. The only thing left is the switch. Fords are bad about burning the wire connector that conects to the switch. You will most likely have to replace the switch and the connector. Both of these parts are widely avaiable at most aftermarket parts stores.
