Question about 2005 Pontiac G6

3 Answers

I have an '05 Pontiac G6. Last night I stopped to fill up w/ fuel. When I resarted the car the HVAC blower motor was not working. It was fine before that. I had just washed the car, but I do not think that should be an issue. Also I got a new battry installed yesterday moring, but blower was fine after both of these events. My questions. 1) How can I test to see whether it is the blower motor relay, resistor or motor itself? 2) Where is the blower motor on that model located? I know where the relay is and I believe the resistor is is in the same under dash fuse panel. I do not want to tackle the motor myself if it is way to hard to get to. 3) Which is it most likely to be? I was thinking relay or motor beacuase the resistor if, bad usually lets the fan run on high. Don't know if that is true on G6 or not though. 4) Can autozone NAPA or similar test each of these if I cannot? The fuses look fine, I already checked those first. Your quick reply is appreciated. It is supposed to be over 100 all week here and we have small grandchildren.

Alright, Its located under the glove compartment. You'll see a plastic cover just bout 1/2 foot, just pull it off to gain access to the blower.

Hi! You may not have a relay or fuse issue. Most of this problem comes from a faulty blower motor itself thats why it fails. The battery replacement and car wash has nothing to do with this its just the breakpoint of the blower. Once the blower motor is replaced I believe you'll be good. Hope this helps and have a good one!

    Thx. Where is the blower motor on the G6? Is it very hard to get to? I can replace it if I don't have to remove the dash or something like that, but not if I do.



    Thanks in advance

Hi well first question 2: its not an easy thing to get to as it is placed right under the dashboard this is the same fan/blower as the heater, as i gather you have checked the fuses for the heater? and not the actual AC pump fuse?..ok, answer to question 1, to test to see if it is the motor, if you have access to a volt meter, remove the switch from the dashboard, locate the plug on the rear, unplug it from the switch, source some small bits of wire ( enough not to be able to touch each other) now with volt meter, you should have in the plug itself a permanent live or an ignition live ( ie when ignition is on ) +, if not then you have a problem in the power supply for the switch in turn stops the motor running, if however you have power to the switch, then this will possibly be the motor, ( if you do have power when you test the plug, this will be coming from the fuse box which means the relay's and fuses are ok) so it will be the motor, to test if it is the switch itself, connect a wire straddling 2 contacts using the volt meter change it to ohm's and flick switch if you get a beep from meter, then switch is ok and question 4, i wouldn't know to be honest as ime from the UK but any motor retailer or electrical center should be able to test them for you, cant say it will be cheap though as they may charge for the investigation which could take a long time...hope this is ok for you

You will need to replace the "Blower Motor Resistor", which is not difficult for the average person to do. Here's a video demonstrating how to do it:

The HVAC blower fan on my 2001 Pontiac Aztec stopped working on settings 1-3 several weeks ago. Last week it stopped working at setting 4 and today it stopped working all together. What is the most likely...


the blower not working on settings 1-3 is the blower motor resistor. this limits the power provided to the blower motor itself to change the speed. at setting 4 it is getting full power. since it quit on 4 also, i would still say the resistor needs to be replaced first, then see if the blower comes back. you may also need a blower motor. if you have a voltmeter you can just turn the switch to 4 and see if the motor is still getting 12 volts. if it is and doesn't run, it needs a blower motor too. if it's not, then its just the resistor

Supercede:
This bulletin is being revised to update Step 5 of the service procedure. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 05-01-39-001 (Section 01 - HVAC).
Condition
Some customers may comment on an inoperative or intermittent Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) blower motor. Others may comment that the blower motor speed may momentarily drop or that the blower motor continues to run after the key is turned off.
Cause
This condition may be caused by a voltage spike from the wiper motor. The voltage spike may cause a logic lock up in the blower motor control module that may be either momentary or permanent.

The heater/AC in my '05 G6 only blows on high. Do I have to take it in to a dealer or can I reset it myself?


Your blower motor speed is controlled by a Blower Motor Control Processor and a HVAC control module.You should take your car to a Dealership.
