The E46 blower resistor is harder to remove than the E39 .
Open the Glove box.
Remove the three phillips screws across the top of the open box. Remove the two phillip screws that are deeper in on the sides of the open box(nine and three o'clock). Hard to see, use your flashlight. With these five screw removed remove the glove box. Disconnect the flashlight charger plug, and the glove box light connector. Pay attention to the wire routing. Remove plastic cover behind glove box. Locate motor and metal link to one of the a/c doors. Remove the metal arm from the plastic clip. Slide motor out and disconnect. There is an odd shaped black plastic piece with two T-20 or 25 Torx screws that need to be removed.Remove plastic piece. The Final stage is located behind the metal arm for the a/c door.R emove the floor heater duct for more room. You may or may not feel the need. If you wish pull on the leather extension to the center console outward until you hear a loud plastic cracking. Stop. Take a deep breath and know that you have broken nothing important Remove heater duct careful not to break the blend air door cam (white) and the lever connected to it (black).
You can pull that black lever out if you are patient. Back to the final stage now that you have more room. It is the component with the 5 0r 6 large gauge wires on the connector. Push back the black plastic clamp while pulling/wiggling on the connector.
The final stage should come out, then disconnect the connector. Reinstall all. Make sure the heater duct is installed properly if you removed it.

SOURCE: heater blower not working

I don't know if this is a long-term solution but I found it on another "how-to" website: on my 2001 E46 I removed the fuse (#50) for one minute. Something about the transistors inside the FSU (final stage unit, or blower resistor) resetting themselves with the constant power removed. I replaced it and drove home, which is a 1-hr drive, and the fan was on steady the whole time. Which it hasn't done in the 3 yrs I've owned it. I tested it at other speeds and it worked well. Don't know how long it will last though. If not, you need to replace the Blower Resistor - there about $75.
www.bimmerwerkz.com is an excellent source of info! They have pics, utube video, and diagrams to help you.

The a/c fan will not come on in either the a/c or Heater mode to circulate air. I've looked at the fuses in both the Glove box and the trunk area and cannot find the fuse location for the blower fan? Any...


The problem is not with the failed fan from a broken fuse, rather it is a problem in the electric motor fan because it is a very common problem with BMW E39, but E46 and E53! Switching the fan is completely controlled by signals from the motor and the computer is powered pres thick wires and securing them directly 70A fuse in the engine compartment in electrical box.

Hi My heater and air con has stopped blowing


Hi!!

Let's start with the basics, check blower motor and AC fuses and relays, also take a visual check to the wiring going to the Blower Motor (Firewall, passenger side). Look for broken wires and loose electrical terminals.

Let me know how it went.

Good Luck!!!

Why does the heater blower stay on when the car is turned off and the keys removed its a bmw


are you talking about the fan blower inside the car or the fans under the bonnet..? the fans under the bonnet may stay on for a while after the engine is switched off to prevent heatsoak. This is when the engine actually heats up more after switch off due to latent heat within the engine. The fans will remain on until the coolant temperature has fallen and stabilised, then the fans will stop. If the blower fan inside the car keeps running, this may be a feature on the car to assist with heat soak but I would think this is more like a faulty power relay or fan controller if the car has climate control..In this case, my advice would be to consult a qualified autoelectrician.

Heater blower not working


It sounds like your cabin air filter has stopped up common problem on these cars. You have to remove the glovebox to get to it. If this filter stops up, your fan will be running on high but hardly anything will come out of the vents.

The blower is not the problem
The problem is a faulty final stage resitor located
on the passenger side under the dash.
Very common - easy to replace.

Heater blower not working


Hello picotto2006....Your beemer blower motor has a resistor that controls and regulates the voltage and speed. This has been known to to fail due to intensive heat. A lot of beemer owners have replaced the orginal factory resistor with an aftermarket upgrade.
It is a rectangular plastic or fiberboard unit and should be bolted to the base of the heater box. This resistor has most likely failed.
Replacement cost is about 75 dollars for the E46. Attached is a picture of the resistor.
Good luck and i hope this will fixya up and get the beemer heater back in operating condition.df23cb9.jpg
