Question about 1992 GMC Jimmy

92 jimmy blower motor wont run

My Blower motor wont run on any setting. I replaced the switch and pigtail connector in the dash for the wiring harness because they were melted together and charred - obviously indicating a short despite the fuse being totally ok - and it still wont work.

I heard it may be the resistor having shorted out or overheated. Is this true? and if so, I can't for the life of me find it; not even my Haynes manual shows where it is.

Any help would be appreciated... It's getting cold up here.

I had this problem with my blower on the same vehicle. It was the blower it's self was bad. Cost me $26 to get a new one and now it works better than ever. You should try replacing the blower motor or at least test it be hard wiring it to the battery. If you get a responce from it then the problem lays between the blower and the switch. If you get nothing then replace the blower.
Hope this helps.

My 2003 chevy trail blazer blower motor does not come on

First test the blower motor by jumping 12 volts to the motor connector. If the blower runs pull the dash switch and check for a burnt connector and overheated wiring at the blower speed control switch, if that is the problem, replace the switch and the wiring harness to the blower motor. I think there was possibly a Recall or Technical Service letter on this problem.

How to replace pigtail connector on blower motor for a 1998 chevy malibu

You have to cut the wires and solder, or use butt-connectors, to hook up the new one. I also recommend replacing the blower motor resistor. Having enough current to damage the connector has put a lot of strain on it also. It is also in the same area as the blower motor.

Blower fan only runs in positions 1-3, not on 4; relay or resistor?

Remove blower motor resistor and check to see if it discolored or melted. if so then replace blower motor resistor, also blower motor speeds 1-4 go through resistor, 5 goes direct from switch to blower motor. check wire harness connector at resistor, it should have six wires five power wires that corralate with the five settings on switch, so in each switch setting one wire should have power. the sixth wire is the ground. also harness connector to resistor it may be melted, if so go to dealer with vin number and get new harness connector with resistor.
I hope this helped.

1998 GMC Sierra. Blower motor works sometimes. No particular circumstances, just when it wants to. Checked all fuses, relays, even replaced the resistor, nothing. Followed the wire harness and found...

could it be the blower motor it self? sometimes they have a "bad spot" when it is not working, can you hit it and make it run? pretty common on these trucks. the switch is also common. they often melt at the connector on the back making a bad connection. i would double check the motor first.

No air is coming out of the vents from my 2006 chevy silverado checked all applicable fuses and found nothing blown. The big fan in front of the motor is runing. Not sure what to do next is it possible a...

hi, i have seen this problem in about 25 chevy trucks so far, they have a blower motor resistor that gets too hot when using lower blower speed settings and it melts the connector going to it, until the wire eventually looses contact. you can repair this relatively easily, but you have to replace both the blower motor resistor, and the wiring connector. the wiring connector is availible at your local chevrolet parts dealer(probably only gm dealership will have this) and it will be a pigtail harness to solder in or use the **** connectors in the kit. now, to find this part, take the lower cover on the passenger side of the dash out( this cover will be directly beneath the glove box and the radio, on the very bottom of the dash), there will be four seven millimeter head screws to remove, and beneath the cover right next to the blower motor is the resistor with about six wires going to it, wiggle this connector a bunch, try to use the fan speed on the dash, it will work for a bit, but likely will loose connection again. so, get the wiring connector pigtail for the blower motor resistor, and the blower motor resistor, and replace both, should work fine after that, make sure when clipping the wires to the connector for attachment to the new connector, do this one by one so as to not confuse the colored wires order. if you have any more questions, or need further assistance, write a comment to the thread, i will check periodically.

Blower not turning to push air and heat through vents, Replaced blower motor, still not working. How do you get to the dash wiring to check electrical connections. fuse is good.

Replace the Blower Resistor. (About $12).

The resistor might be good; I have found that the terminals corrode, create resistance and sometimes melt the connector (About $100). Check the resistor before replacing it! If the connector gets fried, solder pigtails onto the good resistor and use Marr connectors to attach the pigtails to the existing wires,

My heater fan quit working. I don't know if the problem is with the fan or the electrical system (fuse?).

First place to check is fuse box. Look at F-20. It is under the dash, left of the steering wheel.

Here's a link to the fuse box legend...

Here's a link to show you where the fuses sit in the box...

Blower motor runs somethimes

Could be a faulty switch, or wire connector problem, and not necessarily the blower motor. You could save yourself $600 by doing a little troubleshooting to find the problem.

Try wiggling the wire connector at the blower and the switch. If it is the blower motor, spend a few dollars for a chilton's manual or haynes, and do it yourself.

Connector wire to blower motor

Blower motor pigtail. You can order one from the dealer. I would take an all and try to bend them (in the connector) to make it a more snug fit. Also clean the pins, and put dialectric grease on them. If that doesn't help, the only other solution is a new pigtail.
