Question about 2000 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

2 Answers

The heater/ac blower has stopped completely after a period of time working intermitently. What could be the problem(s) and how do I remove/replace the blower switch on the dash. It only had three speeds when I bought it.

    It did not speed up & slow down but would not work on all speeds. It would stop and start again without moving the switch and has now completly stopped working. It acted as though when the switch would get hot it would stop and after a while start again. I am hoping that it is just the switch and would like to know how to replace it if you feel this could be the problem.

    when the fan worked erratically, did it gradually speed up and slow down, perhaps stopping on occasion?

There are two possible problems with it. The first is the switch, and the second is the heater motor itsself. Since the switch is easier and cheaper, I would start there. You'll have to pull off the trim ring on the dash...chevrolet likes to put a border like thing around the dash components that just snaps in in order to hide the gaps and screws. Once this is out, you will be able to access the screws for the panel that contains the switch. Then it'll be a matter of simply removing the switch, and replacing it. If that doesn't fix it, then you will have to replace the fan motor. It's possible that the brushes inside are worn out from use by now, due to age of the vehicle, causing intermittent operation. Good luck, and hope you get it fixed quickly.

There could be another issue that needs attention. The vehicle's blower speed is not only controlled by the switch on the panel, but also a blower motor resistor, which is located under the passenger's side dash, right next to the blower motor. The best way to determine if that is the problem without the use of a multi-meter is to turn the interior blower on, if it's not working, tap the bottom of the blower motor housing and see if it starts to spin. If so, it's probably the blower motor, but the resistor is a common problem. It's unlikely that the selector switch has failed in my experience.

Heater Blower won't work

There was a bulletin reguarding water contaminating the blower motor, which overheats the blower resistor and renders it inoperative. The fix was to replace the blower and the resistor and seal the culprit hood cowl screw at the base of the windshield, which is the second screw from the passenger side. They say water drips off of it down into the fresh air opening.
Here's what I'd do: Assuming your switch and blower motor is good, replace the blower resistor. Remove the blower motor and see if it spins without any excessive drag. If it's okay, reuse it. If it's dragging, it will overheat your new resistor in a short period of time and you'll be back at square one. The blower resistor is mounted to the front of the case with 2 screws to the left of the blower motor. Remove the glove box and you'll see it.
The Hood cowl screw is straight down into the cowl, the second one from the right side, about 10-12 inches from the right fender. Pull it out, put some sealer on it, and reinstall it.

Heat/ac blower motor works on high. intermittent on other speeds.

Check the blower resistor pack - usually located in the heater air ducting in the blower fan airflow. Check for loose connections and open circuit resistors on the unit.
If speed 4 works always, its unlikely to be the blower motor ground connection.

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...
