It's not the blower motor that is bad, but rather the blower motor resistor. Next to the motor is the resistor and by replacing that the motor should work in all the speeds. This is a common problem on the 97-04 Grand Prix.

Air condition and heat won't work


Check to see if you are getting voltage to the blower motor if you are the motor is bad if not check the fan speed switch. 1 2 3 or low medium high if you get voltage going to the switch but not from replace the switch if you have voltage from switch check the blower motor resistor the although with the blower resistor you commonly have a high fan speed in the max setting and the lower speed settings don't work wich would make you think 1 2 3 are not working but 4 is. That is why it is best to check all parts to make sure the part you do replace needed to be replaced

Heater switch replacment


Hello! it's my job to make things as easy for the customer as possible...Therefore I must ask why you want to replace the heater switch? Is it because you have lost one or two of the switch speeds? Your vehicle is noted for loss of the Blower Motor Resistor...
Changing the Heater switch means removal of the Climate Control Assembly which is not the easiest of jobs...I've included the process...But are you sure the blower resistor is OK? If you have lost 1,2, or all blower motor speeds it's more than likely the Resistor pack. And a lot easier to change...

It's on the side of the fan motor should be able to getto it from the passenger seat with now problems. need a short flat tip screw driver or a 5/16 or 1/4 wrench to get it off.

Only works on high speed (fan switch)


It sounds like the blower resistor needs to be replaced. Auto Zone will have the blower resistor that you need to replace and will have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done with common tools and will take just under 2 hours if your good with tools. Good luck and keep me posted, the cost of the resistor it self is around $27.00

Blower working on top 2 settings but no air comeing from vents


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. The possible causes due to which the blower is not working normally are fuse, blower resistor or a bad blower motor. Test the voltage at the blower with a test light. Please check the motor relay switch fuse under the dashboard. Use a multi meter to measure ohms for continuity. If these are fine, bypass the blower motor relay switch to make sure blower motor is running fine. Motor relay switch is right next to radiator fan relay switch under the hood. Pull out the blower motor relay switch to see 4 female pin holes. Test the relay switch using a 12 volts power source and a multi meter to measure continuity. If fan works after jumping the pin holes, then blower motor is fine but relay switch may be faulty. You may also need to replace the blower motor resistor. If still the problem persists, then you need to replace the blower motor.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
