You should have the fan speed switch checked and replaced if defective. Because these switches are usually located far up into the dash, where the common do it yourselfer can get to, I recommend having this repair performed by an ASE certified mechanic.

CHECK THE BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR ON THE EVAP BOX. MOST LIKELY IT IS BAD. AFTER YOU REPLACE IT THROW AWAY THE 2 SPEED SWITCH AND RESTORE WIRING BACK THE WAY IT SHOULD BE.

Only high speed works on fan motor


This condition is caused by a defective blower motor speed control resistor. The resistor is located right next to the blower motor with the connector end sticking out of the ducting for the AC/Heater system. Very easy to replace and the part is cheap as well.

The ac is on full at all times, even when you adjust the fan hight. someone sayed i need a a/c auto amplifier. but i can't find that part


Good Evening, If I am translating this properly your fan only works on the high setting? And the other settings do not change the speed? If this is correct respond back and I will help as much as possible.

When I turn the heater on burnt plastic smell from vents


It could be your heater blower motor or the blower speed regulating reisitor.
Try different blower speeds, see if the smell goes away. Also if one or more speed setting don't work, it is more than likely it is the resistor, if no to the tests, it is more likely to be the blower motor.
Also check to see if the blower intake is blocked.

1999 grand marquis were the blower motor resistor is located


this is for manual heater system. If you have electronic (digital display) you don't have one. Instead you have a blower motor speed controller.

here is info

Control System Outputs—Manual A/C
Blower Motor Switch Resistor
The heater blower motor switch resistor has the following features:
  • The assembly is located in the engine compartment on the evaporator housing toward the center of the vehicle.
  • Three resistor elements are mounted on the resistor board to provide four blower motor speeds.
  • Depending on the heater blower motor switch position, series resistance is added or bypassed in the A/C blower motor circuit to decrease or increase A/C blower motor speed.
  • An overheating protective device (thermal limiter) will open the resistor coil when the temperature reaches 121°C (250°F) interrupting the blower motor operation in all speeds except HI.
  • The thermal limiter cannot be reset and is not serviceable.

My 02 Stratus heater only works on high. Any idea


Your blower resistor is bad. It controls the mutiple speeds to allow you to go from low/med/high. When it goes bad you get one speed or no speeds....It's about $20-$50 at any local auto parts store. It mounted directly to the speed switch or on the heater plenum unit on the passenger side behind the glove box....

2004 Chevrolet Silverado Heater/AC Blower on without Ignition ON


there is no relay for the heater fan it's a 15 amp fuse and is on the accessories circuit. the reostat is responsible for all 3 speeds .with the key off there should be no voltage to the blower motor whether the fans speed fan switch is on or off. the fuse will be located in the fuse paneleither on the drivers left side in the dash or underneath the dash in the fuse block. you have a short in the harness that is under the dash and most likely it's a bad plug on the harness. your going to have to do some searching but that's where the problem short is... please rate
