Heater has stopped working


(1) possible blown fuse.
Note that fuses blow for a reason - seek out the reason, or it will blow its new fuse too.

The main fuse block is located inside the left side of the engine compartment near the battery. There is also an interior fuse panel located just above the left side kick panel.

Interior Fuse Panel
The interior fuses simply unplug from the fuse panel. Use the fuse puller tool provided with your car to remove fuses from the panel. The tool is located on the back of the interior fuse panel cover.


(2) possible blower motor dead. See maintenance manual excerpt below.

(3) possible blower motor relay faulty. Location of Blower relay:
Under hood, drivers side, front engine area,rear of headlight housing; relay mounted on drivers side of radiator shroud.

  2. Remove the glove box and the underdash cover.
  3. Detach the electrical connectors from the blower unit.
  4. Remove the blower unit-to-fire wall attaching bolts and remove the blower unit assembly.
  5. Remove the blower motor fan-to-motor fastener.
  6. Remove the blower motor-to-unit attaching bolts, then remove the motor.
  7. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

Heater fan works for a while then cuts off till it cools down




What can go wrong with a blower motor?
There are several things that may cause your blower motor to stop working. The simplest cause would be a blown fuse. If you replace the fuse and it quickly blows again, then you probably have an electrical short. Disconnected wires on the exterior of the blower motor can also cause it stop working, and if your blower motor gets dirty, it can get clogged or muddy which keeps the fan blades from spinning.

How do I test my blower motor?
When you are troubleshooting your blower motor, it is best to start by running the air conditioning or the heater to see if you can hear the sound of the fan. If you can hear the fan, it could be clogged or corroded with dirt. If you do not hear the fan, then you may have a bad resistor, blown fuse, or a loose wire. Next, you should replace any blown fuses in your car's fuse panel and try to start the blower motor again. If another fuse blows right away, you have an electrical short. If it doesn't blow out and the motor is still silent, then something else is wrong. In the case where the fuse lasts for a little while as the fan spins but then the fuse blows again, that usually means you need to replace the brushes on the motor. Finally, you can pull the motor out and visually inspect it for loose wires. If you don't see any and still want to test, try hooking it up to the battery to see if the motor will start. If all these tests still find you with a dead blower motor, it's definitely time to replace it.

How do I replace it?
Usually located under your vehicle's instrument panel, the blower motor can be removed and replaced. You'll need to disconnect the blower motor connector and remove the retaining screws holding it into place. Detach the fan retainer clip from the motor shaft that's located in the center of the blower wheel. You may need to save that piece if you are not replacing the whole motor. Inspect your new motor to ensure nothing is broken and the blades can properly spin. Re-attach the fan retainer clip, the retaining screws, and the connector so you can test your new blower motor out.

2005 pathfinder heater fan doesnt work


the blower motor is not working. a wire may have come loose, or the fuse is blown. i think on the 2005s the blower motor is located where the passengers feet go. i attempted to replace this myself, and realized before i started that it wasn't worth the 55 bucks to have someone else do it.
