Usually this is a sign of a short in the wiring harness supplying the system.

Why do we have an Oder that smells and burns our eyes when blower is turned on?


first check the air intake to the climate system. ie. the cabin filter etc. for contamination.its more than likeley the blower speed control unit is faulty. may be resistance or electronic module depending on vehicle. sounds like plastic is overheating to give that problem. without knowing what vehicle it is the only clue that i can give you is that the speed control will be in the air intake before the climate unit ie. heater/aircon behind the dash. hope this helps.

My 2003 suburban rear blower not working replaced blow it works jumped out check resister I have 12 v going to the resister but ony 1.7 volts to blower replaced resister worked for a week then stoped...


If your original blower burned up, or if the original resistor failed, it is likely that some of the wires leading to the resistor and blower BURNED slightly in the process, and will need to be replaced all the way back to where they connect to the fuse block. (The wires may have been pinched or otherwise damaged somewhere, so they no longer carry the amount of current required, causing the resistor to fail due to a low-voltage over-current condition.) Sadly a failed resistor can also burn the motor out. Check the windings of the motor (via the connector) using an ohmmeter to see if it is still good.

Hi Ken, I'm glad to help! A/C Blower problems like your, where the blower only blows on HIGH and later stops working all together is usually the "BLOWER MOTOR RESISTER" That is where I would start. Ken, If that does fix it. I would replace the blower motor as well because its usually the high resister within the motor that actually causes the problem with the resister. The Blower Resister on most vehicles is located on the passenger side near the motor. Some are right beside the motor, others are behind the glove box in the housing. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Ken.

I have a 1993 olds cutlass ciera s and when i turn on the heater a/c fan it hardly blows air even on high


Check it the car has a cabin air filter... remove it vaccume out the air box carefuly and replace it. If you have a filter and you never replace it it is likly it is packed with what ever. are you sure the blower moter is working at all speeds? if not the blower motor resister is likly the cause. the resister is mounted on the blower box not sur on your car inside or out, if it is the problem then you should buy a harness kit too, because the ends ar most likly melted and not goning to be servicable.

Why is the blower not blow strong air out i put new moter in but it still does not blow good


do all of the fan speeds work? if not you need to replace the blower motor resister. If all of the fan speeds work then you need to clean or replace your in cabin air filter. When this filter gets clogged you get very little air flow from your vents. Instructions for your cabin air filter service are in your owner's manual

Blower swith in position 1,2,3 no blower, in


Check the cover for the environmental cabin filter. It is located on the far right side of the cowling right below the right windshield wiper. There are a few torx screws that secure the cover and then it pulls out to reveal the cabin filter. The cover (being poorly designed by VW) cracks and during rain the rain runs off the window and soaks the cabin filter. The water from the soaked filter then drips down into the blower motor and shorts out the resistor module at the bottom of the blower motor. The blower will continue to operate at full speed because it is operating on an open circuit without need for resistance for the resistor pack. There is a small access "panel" at the bottom of the blower motor you will need to remove in order to see the problem, you should see a frighteningly burned looking module in there. Good Luck! Hope this helps!

Blower fan resistor module replaced, worked for 2 days quit again


HIGH RESISTANCE IN THE BLOWER MOTOR CAN CAUSE YOUR PROBLEM, OR A BAD RESISTOR.
THERE IS NO REAL GOOD WAY TO CHECK THE RESISTANCE OF THE BLOWER MOTOR.
