Blower motor is over on passenger side under dash, remove plastic cover, check for voltage at wire's going to blower motor with key on and blower switch on, should have voltage at one wire, if voltage there replace blower motor.

Not necessarily the replacement will solve the problem cause you are not sure if its the motor the one with problems, the easy way to find out if the motor is dead is to feed it with 12 volts and see if it runs, if it doenst ull need to replace but if it does run, will mean the motor is perfect and the lines resposible of the relay, maybe even the ECM (less likely) is the one causing the problem.
the fan is installed on the front side or back side of your engines radiator (not to be confused with the air conditioned radiator) ur engines radiator is connected by hoses to your engine
hope this helps

The brush's are probly stuck open / did you look on the fire wall for a blower fan shape it's probly hiding up inside on the firewall or under a fender /if you can find the motor try giving it a good sharp rap on the end to free the brush's and hope it gets a little more life out of itself otherwise you need a new fan blower motor .[I@40be55&currentPage=1&vehicleNValue=&navValue=15200099&parentId=52-0&fromString=&fromWhere=null&filterByKeyWord=&categoryNValue=&categoryDisplayName=Climate+Control&_requestid=433411

My A/C, FAN and HEATER stopped working

It's likely your blower motor is faulty. When it stops, so does everything else. It's located under the glove box. The most common cause of a fault is simply a loose red wire connection going into the blower motor itself. A simple squeeze with the pliers can solve that problem. If it's not a bad connection then your blower motor itself is faulty and can be bought on ebay and replaced easily at home.

The only other fault you may have is your bitron unit or temperature sensor, but these would not cause your fan to stop blowing. All the best

Fan blower stopped working. I have changed the fuse and it has not solved the problem. The fan does not come on at any level.

Sounds like the blower motor, has gone bad, with test light, key and blower motor on, check voltage at blower motor, if you have voltage there, bad blower motor, blower motor sit under dash on passenger side, replace it.

My blower works sometime and then stops and starts and stops

This is the way blower motors act when they go out sometimes,it will have to be replaced to solve this problem,when the blower quits again,bump the blower motor with the palm of your hand,if it starts back blowing,then this is the problem.

Heater blower for front heater doesn't work, back one does

First: check the Front Blower Motor Relay located in the IPM. Its' location should be on the back side of the cover. There should be an available Spare Relay. Replace and Check operation.
If this does not solve it.
Try the Fan Speed on "high". If the Motor comes on only "high" and no other speed, then it is definitely the Blower (Fan) Motor Resistor and must be replaced. It is located behind the dash Glove Box. Remove the Glove Box. The resistor is located on the back fire wall, and has 3 to 4 wires going into it. It is approximately 3 1/2 inches wide by 1 1/2 inches high. Disconnect the electrical connection. There should be two bolts (I believe 8mm) holding the resistor in place. Remove the bolts and Remove and Replace. Check the operation.
If this does not solve it:
Pull the connection to the Blower Motor and check for Voltage with the Fan On "low". If correct voltage: the Blower Motor itself needs to be replaced.
Let me know if this helped; or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!
