Check the fuse to see if it is blown,be sure to have the head lights on,and the dash dimmer on all the way bright,when checking the fuse,if it is not blown,check the fuse to see if it has voltage on that fuse,if it does not,then replace the head light switch.If the fuse has voltage to it,then either a bad connection at the cluster,or the bulbs are burned out in the cluster.

My husband and i changed blower motor, relay. On our 81 corvette but still will not work help.


Thats because the older style GM blowers depended a lot on bushings for rotation, and as we all know bushings just cant outlast bearings. It looks like you'll need to replace that fan motor.
