Fan doesn't work on low speeds in 2001 Grand Am

My blower for the fan doesn't work on the low settings of 1 or 2. There is no heat or cold air that comes out when it is on one of these settings. It works on 3, 4, and 5. Any suggestions as to what it might be?

Blower motor resistor is a highly probable cause.. another would be the switch/selector itself.

In cold temp,heater motor do not run


you mean low heat. at all ducts with full fan speed and blows hard,
here is the correct order.
1: engine at 180F or more holding, a absolute must.
2: fan runs at full speed on HIGH, (sounds like it)
3: fan actual blows (felt) at full speed, to any vent, try all vents.
4: now heat, will happen, if not, the dampers are closed or wrong.
damper can be complex on newer cars,they have motor controlled damper servos';

is this just blower fan dead? problem. on high, if yes say so.

Heater working intermittently


THE HEAT PROBLEM IS MOST LIKELY TO BE LOW COOLANT WITH THE MOTOR DEAD COLD CHECK COOLANT LEVEL LOOK AROUND INTAKE MANIFOLD SEE IF ANY LEAKS ARE PRESENT FOR THE BLOWER SPEEDS THE BLOWER MOTOR RESISTER IS PROBLEY THE PROBLEM IT WILL BE LOCATED BY THE BLOWER MOTOR

Blower motor doesn't pump well even the fan switch on high


sounds like blower bearings are dried out and will eventually lock up the blower..sometimes you can spray wd40 in the blower bearings and it will work fine for a while.. also check vacuum controls to the baffle dors in the ductwork..may have some leaks there.. should hear a slight hissing if really bad..repost findings

01- Dodge Caravan AC Heater Control it only works on high none of the speeds work when I rotate the switch from low to high. Is this a swith problem or a motor problem?


Most likely neither. The most common cause is that an electrical device called the blower motor resister block, has failed. This device provides all the slower speeds. It is generally mounted in the HVAC [Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning] box, very close to the blower motor. FYI, we mechanics call the fan motor inside the cabin the blower motor. The electric fan motor behind the radiator is called the cooling fan motor.
If the resistor block is OK, then you have either a bad fan speed switch or a melted electrical connector at that switch. 95% of the time, the resister block is the problem.

Ac fan speed


Replace the blower motor resister,this is the speeds for the blower motor,it is located very near the blower motor,and is mounted on the blower box,and it actually goes inside the box,to keep it cool.The reason for it`s failure is the blower motor,even though the blower motor sounds,and runs good,it is drawing too many amps.If this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Why would my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee only blow luke-warm to cold air when the fan is on high? First the heat went on the highest setting, so i used the second highest. Then it started to coll as...


Sounds like you need a blower motor resistor located down under dash on pass side next to blower motor. This is a comon problem and I have changed many of them. thats just the fan speed problem. Ive seen the blend doors break easily on those jeeps. thats inside the heaer core box and moves the flap from hot air to cold air. If it is stuck halfway -or mostly to cold- you may only get luke warm air. If they had the heater core out-maybe they possibly broke it.

you most likely have a bad airmix servo. this happens alot on these. they are expensive to replace too.

Ac or heat wont blow


Needs a blower motor resistor if the fan only blows on one speed. It is located underneath the firewall on the outside, near where the passenger exhaust system is. You need to take the passenger side cat converter off to get to it.
