Not likely a "short," but more likely a bad ground. Check all of your ground wires and connections underneath the dash, and clean all chassis connections that show signs of rust or corrosion with penetrating oil.

Blower suddenly quit working


The recharge of your a/c system and this is unrelated, could be a bad blower motor or blower motor resistor, have you checked your blower motor fuse? If fuse good, check voltage at blower motor, sit under dash on passenger side, just below dash, you will be able to see it, will have two wire's going to it, only one will have voltage with switch on, if you have voltage replace it, not that hard of a job to do, shop repair time to remove and replace blower motor is .7 tenths of an hour, hope this was very helpful.

My a/c heat and fan are all not working. Already checked the plugs and replaced them. They are all good to go...What now?


well the plugs have NOTHING to do w/ the air conditioner and heat. check your washer and dryer. thats what its called to. but you have to go to a mechanis and ask them to look at your washer and dryer. to replace that you have to take out the dash and it takes over 3 hours.

Ac problem


I just fixed mine. same problem, no ac light no fan. inside the heater control assembly there is a electric wiper arm on the fan switch. This arm connects all power for fan and ac. Mine broke out of the fan control switch. Dash is not too much problem to get out. Have to pull top dash center section out by puching forward and lifting out. pull all screws on center dash counsel. remove radio, two side covers that hide screwsand lower trim that holds emergency flasher switch. remove cables from heater control and wires and remove. Took me about an hour. The code on radio will need to be reset so make sure you have that handy. Hope this helps..

2000 grand prix fan speed


i have been having that same exact problem with my 2002 grand prix for over a year now, and when my ac is on the lower setting the it doesnt work plus the headlights and lights on my dash go out. On Max everything works. i changed the blower resistor(about $35), still doesnt work. i changed all relays and fuses related to the ac, still doesnt work. i changed out the actual ac control switch in the dash, still doesnt work. i have changed everything but the blower motor and have asked every mechanic and auto parts retailer i come across and no one knows the answer. The best answer i got is that it is probably a wiring problem like a short somewhere.

MY AC AND HEATER FAN BLOWER IS RUNNING ON HIGH ONLY ON ALL SETTINGS ONLY EVEN WHEN I DISCONDECT CONTROLS


Normally i would suggest replacing the blower motor resistors but the fact the fan is still on with the controls disconnected throws me off a bit. It sounds like the 12v+ wire to the blower motor is shorted to 12v. I don't have a wiring diagram handy for that vehicle but look for a high speed fan relay. It sounds like the relay is sticking. Would be under the dash, likely above the passenger side foot well.

Fuse keeps blowing on 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee


Your fan seems to be drawing way too much current, common with fan motors of all kinds when they are going bad. It will still blow, but hot wires and blown fuses in the normal circuit indicate you have an excessive load in the circuit. Fan motors create this condition regularly, but are often ignored since they are "still blowing."

Here's a cheap, easy way to test my theory:
Try a new fuse, the proper amperage, but leave the blower motor unplugged at the blower itself. That will tell you in a few rides if the blower was the culprit. (Which it most likely is.) I bet your #20 fuse will stop blowing and no more smoking pink wires! Hope this helps. Remember, blower motors are cheap, traffic tickets and dash fires are not. The blower motor draw is the logical thing wrong with this picture. Good LUCK! TT

2004 Chevrolet Silverado Heater/AC Blower on without Ignition ON


there is no relay for the heater fan it's a 15 amp fuse and is on the accessories circuit. the reostat is responsible for all 3 speeds .with the key off there should be no voltage to the blower motor whether the fans speed fan switch is on or off. the fuse will be located in the fuse paneleither on the drivers left side in the dash or underneath the dash in the fuse block. you have a short in the harness that is under the dash and most likely it's a bad plug on the harness. your going to have to do some searching but that's where the problem short is... please rate
