Question about 1996 BMW 7 Series

1 Answer

Hi, I have a 96 740il and I just replaced the heater motor (used one) and it worked only a couple of weeks and now it has stopped? Is it just the used motor or should I do something else. The original motor that I took out was ceased, but I have not opened it up again to check this used one that I installed.

Car heater blowing cold air and rubber burnning


If your heater is spraying a light mist through your vents it could be your heater coil. Mine did the same thing, smell rubber burning, then started a light mist through the vents. If you don't get that checked out, it could mess up your water pump and possibly your engine

1995 Pontiac Grand AM SE. Heater fan works for weeks then won't go, try a couple hours later then it goes.


It sounds like the brushes on armature for (blower motor ) are worn. Sometime a bad spot on the armature from not being used often and also by being in the engine compartment where it is exposed to condensation. When the brushes stop at that particular spot, the blower will not start spin process unless it draws alot of current that may be why the fuse blew. You can remove the blower and examine or just make the change.

05 GMC sierra heater blower stopped working. It used to work on setting 1-4 but lost 4 a couple weeks ago and now none of them work. Is this a bad blower , resistor or both?


The resistor is most likely bad but should still work on the highest setting.Would check pigtails to the resistor and to the blower motor for burnt or discolored wiring.You can try tapping the blower motor and wiggling the wiring harness too see if it will work on the highest setting. It is possible that the blower motor is bad as well typically when you lose the speed selection it is the resistor but you should always have high speed.

The blower on the ac/ heater has stopped blowing. It did this a couple of weeks ago, but then it started to work again. This time it has not started to blow yet.


You need to check if it is getting power to the blower motor. If it isn't it could be the resistor which is usually located next to the blower motor deoending on what the vehicle is.

Rear window wiper works for a few days or weeks


Check the plug is completely plugged into the motor. Maybe a bad connection in the motor itself. Also check the switch, try wiggling it when turning on.

See if the blower motor will run with a wire ran to it from a 12 volt supply from the vehicle.If so the blower relay needs to be checked to see if it is the problem,if it checks out,replace the control head,the part that does not light up anymore.If the motor does not work with 12 volts ran to it,replace the blower motor.

Hello,

The blower motor, as you have probably seen, is under the dash on the passengers side. While in Park with the parking brake applied:

Turn the Key On with fan blower set to High. Locate the blower motor and wiggle the electrical connector. If this brings the blower motor to life, a new blower motor is needed. This, if applicable, is a common failure that matches your symptoms. The new blower is simple to replace, although it is never fun working under the dash.

If you have a 12 volt test light or DVOM (multimeter) you can check for power at the electrical connector. You should have battery voltage (12+) with the blower set on high. Always use a known good ground when testing for power. If you have power (key on, set to high) and no blower operation the blower motor needs replacing.

The resistor you replaced is a very common failure on these.

Give me an update.

Blower for AC/Heater stopped working


if you can reach the blower motor, it could be a worn out carbon brush of the blower motor. if they are, buy a set of carbon brush, learn how to replace them and it would be back running in no time. by the way, when you pull out the carbon brush holder, make sure you dont interchange the position. you can put them back wards and what would happen is the rotation will be reversed. either you reversed the carbon brush holder or just simply interchange the wires that are coming to the motor. i hope i was able to help...
