Where is the blower motor resistor located on 1977 buick Electra limited.


Generally they are located inside the air duct so that the cooling air from the blower keeps the resistors cool. Some vehicles have a cover over them that enables you to remove them without removing anything else, while some vehicles require the whole blower and duct to be removed to get access. If there is not a small cover located somewhere under the dash in the ducting, then most likely your one requires the whole thing to be removed.

2003 GMC Envoy Heater Fan doesn't always blow


Your problem most likely is the resistor block. In order to limit the fan speed a reistor is placed in the circuit which will limit current flow to the motor thus giving you the diferent speeds. High speed bypasse the resistor to get full motor speed. Since you only get high speed it is very likely that the resistor block is faulty

In my 1999 Rx300, first i have click sound below glove box and now my HVAC fan runs only high speed.? I can lower it at all? What to do?


I would suggest replacing your blower motor resistor bock. Speed 123 go through a resistor to limit the current flow throught the motor therefore limiting motor speed. High speed bypasses the resistor block which is why the blower would only work on high.

Fuse for Mitsubishi fuel pump


It is critically important for turbocharged models that the fuel pump receive the maximum amount of voltage available from the charging and wiring system. The alternator will try to maintain about 13.5 volts into the system. Resistive losses along the current path to the pump will reduce the voltage at the pump to something less than 13.5. If there are less than 12 volts at the pump, the amount of fuel flowing may be much less than expected and perhaps enough less to create lean air-fuel mixtures under heavy boost.

The instructions below show you how to bypass the resistor and relay that the turbocharged 3S models use to reduce voltage to the pump at idle. Please read through the instructions and look at the pictures before attempting this procedure. Before I did this relay/resistor bypass I measured the voltage at the pump using the method shown on my web page 2-fuelpumpvoltage.htm. At idle the pump was receiving about 6.7 to 7.0 volts. I saw from 10.6 to 10.8 volts as boost began to build and then watched that number drop to 10.2 to 10.3 volts as boost hit 15 psi or so and RPM approached redline. After performing the relay/resistor bypass I remeasured the voltage at the fuel pump with the following results.

Cold idle: 11 volts
Warm idle: ~10.6 volts
Warm idle after radiator fan kicked in: 10.35 - 10.55 volts
Acceleration and boost: ~10.5 volts

Heater blower only works on high. Replaced the resistor no difference.Checked fuses OK. What else could it be.


The resistor has a thermal limiter in it, if its bad, it cannot be reset. The blower motor may be bad causing high amperage, burning out the limiter. At the resistor,Ck if there is power at the GRAY/BROWN and GREEN/WHITE, and BLACK/GRAY wires, they should. If not CK the Violet/Orange wire, it should have power.If the Violet /Orange wire has power, but the others do not the limiter is bad and it needs replacement (resistor) If all have power, then when gounding each wire (except the Violet/Orange wire) the blower should come on

Where is the blower resister on a 2004 crown victoria


very unusual location. usually inside the car in the plenum case by passenger floor, but here it is:


Blower Motor Switch Resistor
The heater blower motor switch resistor has the following features:
  • The assembly is located in the engine compartment on the evaporator housing toward the center of the vehicle.
  • Three resistor elements are mounted on the resistor board to provide four blower motor speeds.
  • Depending on the heater blower motor switch position, series resistance is added or bypassed in the A/C blower motor circuit to decrease or increase A/C blower motor speed.
  • A device to prevent overheating (thermal limiter) will open the resistor coil when the temperature reaches 121°C (250°F) interrupting the blower motor operation in all speeds except HI.
  • The thermal limiter cannot be reset and is not serviceable.

1999 grand marquis were the blower motor resistor is located


this is for manual heater system. If you have electronic (digital display) you don't have one. Instead you have a blower motor speed controller.

here is info

  • The assembly is located in the engine compartment on the evaporator housing toward the center of the vehicle.
  • Three resistor elements are mounted on the resistor board to provide four blower motor speeds.
  • Depending on the heater blower motor switch position, series resistance is added or bypassed in the A/C blower motor circuit to decrease or increase A/C blower motor speed.
  • An overheating protective device (thermal limiter) will open the resistor coil when the temperature reaches 121°C (250°F) interrupting the blower motor operation in all speeds except HI.
  • The thermal limiter cannot be reset and is not serviceable.

I want to know where exactly the IAT sensor is on a 94 cavalier


The IAT sensor can be found on the intake tube that runs just before the throttle body. But the resistor doesn't do anything for the engine after 1000 RPM. With the reading from the MAP and O2 sensor's they control the amount of fuel in your engine after the engine is running. The IAT does play a roll in your Air Fuel Ratio but not much, only when it's running at idle. Sorry for the bad new's my friend, if you want to may a big difference, take it to a shop the can flash your computer and dyno tune it from your shift points to your rev limit. Good luck

Blower problem


The blower motor resistor:
  • is located on the heater core and evaporator core housing near the blower motor.
  • has three resistor elements mounted on the resistor board to provide four blower motor speeds.
  • depending on the blower motor switch position, series resistance is added or bypassed in the blower motor circuit to decrease or increase blower motor speed.
  • has an overheating device (thermal limiter) that will open the resistor coil when the temperature reaches approximately 184°C (363°F) , interrupting the blower motor operation in all speeds except high.
  • is serviced as an assembly. The thermal limiter cannot be reset and is not serviceable.
REMOVAL
  1. Lower the glove compartment.
  2. Remove the screws and position aside the 4x4 control module.
  3. Remove the blower motor resistor.
4 Disconnect the electrical connector. 5 Remove the screws and the blower motor resistor. INSTALLATION
  1. To install, reverse the removal procedure.
