The various speeds are controlled through resisters (spring-like in apperance) one of different value for each speed, none for highest speed as the power gets to the blower uninpeeded . the resistor pack should be located on the center of the firewall, held by 2 screws. thats under the hood. where the engine bay ends....

Air does not blow


The car normally blows air through the blower however the controls and settings of the speed of the blower are controlled by the blower motor resistor. The resistor controls the speed of the blower fan. If your blower still works on the highest setting then the blower itself is still in working order. If you are not getting any air at all, even on the highest setting, then chances are the blower has gone bad, blown fuse or open wire. If this does not help please give us more information to work with.

My fan blower motor only works on high,They say it maybe the resistor may be bad, where is it ? Thanks, Jim


Hi, the resistor is screwed to the side of the blower housing behind the glove box. See procedure below to replace the resistor. You don't have to complete all steps in the procedure. just work your way to the point that you can unscrew the resistor. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

See Figures 2, 3 and 4
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. If so equipped, disable the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS).
  2. Remove the glove box.
  3. Remove the glove box frame (lower support)

  1. If not equipped with air conditioning:
    1. Remove the three screws and remove the heater duct.
    2. Remove the blower mounting nuts. Unplug the wiring from the blower motor, resistor and recirculation control motor, then remove the blower assembly.

  2. If equipped with air conditioning:
    1. Lift the carpet in the passenger compartment. Remove the side cover (kick panel).
    2. Remove the control unit bracket nuts; unplug the five connectors and remove the control unit bracket.
    3. Remove the retaining band, then remove the blower lower covers. Do not break the tabs on the lower covers.
    4. Remove the retaining nuts and remove the blower assembly.

Heater only works on highest setting. . .sometime rear blower works then not....


The fan switch sounds bad. At first, settings 1 & 2 on mine did not work, then 3 went out too. I replaced the switch and fixed the problem. Two screws on the outer lower portion hold the center console bezel in. Then two screws hold the heat control panel.

1998 olds delta 88 lost fan control, ac control, and rear window control all at once have power to fuses and tried differnt switch assembly in dash


It might not be a fuse that goes to that it might be a relay thats under your hood in the fuse box. Just a idea for you to try. Hope this works out for you.

The heater in my 2002 Dakota works only at the very highest setting. There is no power at the lowers settings. The defrost light doesn't come on until that setting also, so definantly no power. When turned...


I'm assuming you mean the fan only works on high. If that's the case the blower motor resistor is bad. When the fan switch is on high it puts a full 12Volts to the blower motor. When you have the switch in any other possition, the voltage is routed through the resistor and reduced thus making the motor run slower.

2002 Honda Odyssey fan only works at high speed. The A/C compress


Usually when the blower fan only operates on hi speed, its because of a failed blower motor resistor. You still have hi speed because on hi, the power going to the blower motor goes directly to it, as opposed to the lower speeds, when the power is routed through the resistor, thus lowering the voltage, which in turn lowers the speed of the fan. The resistor is usually located near the blower motor itself, under the hood back near the firewall.
