It could be that the relay that controls the fans is going bad or you have a short somewhere in the wiring. I would start with replacing relay first.

2009 blower motor not working.yellow wire has power when key is on even if fan speed switch in off position. Shouldn't it only have power when fan speed switch is turn to on?


It depends on how the circuit is set up , It may go through the fan to switch to ground . What make , model an year vehicle ?

How to trouble shoot front blower


There are several reasons for a blower to stop working. Does it work on ANY speed? Does the AC compressor lamp or any of the vent control LEDs still work when using the AC controls? Do ANY of the speed for the blower work or are they all dead?

1st, you wanna check your fuses. There will be fuses in the underhood fusebox marked blower or heater fan, check and repalce as necessary. Also, if the earlier check for working LED bulbs on the AC control panel showed some or all lights dont ever turn on when engine is running, you may have problems with the control system.
if the fuses are good, now you need to test parts. there is a blower motor speed control aka blower resistor that frequently fails on most cars. It is the part that carries the current for all speeds of the blower and regulates speed when commanded. It has to absorb the excess energy to lower speeds and it tends to get very hot and burn out as a result. If it has failed, there will be power IN on one of its wires, and no power OUT on any others. If you have no multimeter or testlight to check things like this, Id recommend taking it to a certified mechanic.
If the control lamps all work that means controls have power, if the blower resistor has no power, fuses or blower relay are the most likely cause. if the blower resistor has power but still no fan, most likely your fan has failed. as a general rule, I replace fans and blower resistors as pairs. fans tend to last longer, but they also get more demanding with age (kinda like people) and that extra demand will burn out the newer resistor much faster than when the fan was newer. it can be alot of time and money to change a blower TWICE, so to be sure it wont fail again, test current, or simply replace the blower fan if it is determined a resistor has failed. (a good fan in theory shouldnt draw enough amperage to burn out a good resistor, EVER, so if the resistor burns, the fan is typically drawing too much power, and even though it works "fine", it will burn the next resistor in a short time as well.).

Why wont my a/c or heater fan come on?


When the blower works only on the high setting its usually a bad blower resistor which is right near the blower motor. now you say it would always blow high regardless of the fan speed setting that would indicate probably the climate control unit or a connector problem somewhere. finally it not working at all may be the climate control unit or connection went bad even further. it might have a blown fuse or a bad blower motor in addition to the climate control unit or connector problem .check for power and ground at the blower motor. the power is supplied from fuses and may have a relay also. the ground is supplied from the climate control unit and goes through the resistor to control the fan speed. good luck

I have a 2003 Envoy XL, 116K miles. Yesterday as I was driving I noticed that the AC blower speed was not changing as I pressed the buttons to change speed. If you shut the entire climate control unit off,...


You need to replace the BLOWER MOTOR CONTROL MODULE. its up under the dash, near the blower motor. Your dealer or a AC DELCO parts house will have it in stock, very common problem.

99 grand cherokee blower selector high position not working. Blows only level 1-3. replaced resistor, same problem.


automatic or manual a/c.

I'm going to assume manual but Auto is simular and i can give some direction if you have that as well.

There will be a black with tan wire at the blower resistor. This is the wire the HVAC control head grounds to turn the fan on high speed. With a test light hooked to power unplug the resistor, set the blower speed to high, turn the key to the run position. the test light should turn on when you probe the connector. If it doesn't pull the control head and back probe that same wire at the back of the control head with everything still plugged in. If the test light again does not illuminate the the control head is bad and not providing ground

If the test light does turn on when you probe the blower resistor connector plug the resistor back in. Turn the blower speed to the low setting. With your test light hooked to ground see if there is power on the black with tan wire. if there is turn the HVAC off and ground that wire with a jumper wire. the fan should run at high speed. If it doesn't you have a defective resistor.

A/C blower problem


I replaced the power control module. The module is located, electrically speaking, between the A/C head unit and the blower. Physically it is behind/under the glove compartment in the air ducting for cooling. The GM parts counter charged me ~$140.

Blower motor or resistor?


Yes its the blower motor resistor.

More then likley theres some trash or something in it, or possibly the motor itself is on it's way out. There not that bad to pull out of that body car, just pull it out and see what you can see.

The blower motor is under the glove compartment

You can replace the resistor on your own. Please find a detailed diagram which would guide you to do it.
