Question about 2001 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

I just tried a trick that one of your solution providers had given me. I was able to trouble shoot the blower motor troubles. The assistant told me to rap on the blower motor that was under and beneath the glove box. although the solution didn't work, I realized that it probably was not the motor but possibly the fuse. I looked in the fuse panel and found that both of the 15amp fuses were blown. I just replaced the fuses and the blower works again. My question is what would cause a surge to make the fuses blow. I was driving in normal conditions and my air conditioner was on at the time when It stopped working. The temperature was 78 degrees but just 2 weeks ago it was 90 degrees and no trouble. What would be the cause of the fuses blowing now? I have a 2001 maxima GLE with 243,000 miles

Most likely your blower motor is going out. It is putting to much load on your fuse.

Trouble shoot heater fan on a 1996 Plymouth Voyager Van


Check for 12 volt power to resistor under dash on passenger side. Follow wires from under glove box (from blower motor) to resistor, which will be where wires are connected on duct work. You should be able to test for 12 volt DC power there.

Trouble shoot blower motor switch


Often times the problem is the blower resistor not the switch.
You would use a meter or a test light to check for power at the resistor and also the switch. The resistor controls power to the blower motor to adjust speed.

Trouble shooting blower motor on 1997 dodge gran caravan


Check the heat/ac relay first making sure it is working.remove it clean the contacts and reattach. Then check the Resistor component. It is usually located near the blower or on the blower motor itself.It is attached with a couple of screws and a plug between the blower motor and the wiring. Please vote if this helps you.
