Does it go off when you turn the key off if not it is the blower module under the hood on the firewall

Inside fan without ac turns on and off on its own


Either a bad fan relay or the motor is overheating and the thermal switch is shutting it off to prevent a fire.

Ac/heater will only work on low when you move it to med or high it shuts off


need to check switch,resistor and fan ---ur switch might have resistor built in it would need to be tested for continuity for the other speeds --if your truck [didnt specify which ] has a separate resistor it should be attached to the heater fan motor housing again resistor needs to be tested -also test ur fan for any resistance or overheating

The AC fan in my 96 GMC Yukon cuts on when I start the vehicle but after an hour it shuts off on all speeds...any help?


Check the connectors to the AC blower motor switch and the motor itself, see if they are burnt/discolored, replace as needed. Also replace the blower motor. The repair connectors are available from the dealer.

I turned on the ac and the light does not work, the vents are not blowing and the car is running hot. I have a saturn SL 1996


First check the 15 amp HVAC fuse located in the main fuse block inside the car on the passenger side of the center console, under a cover. If the fuse is good, then the problem may either be the HVAC blower switch (which is the fan blower selector switch), the fan blower motor resistor, or the fan blower motor. An auto repair manual will explain and illustrate for you the steps on how to check each of these components.

Even after pushing the ac light switch on, the fan blower selector switch has to be turned on as well (working) because it provides an electrical path to the positive side of the battery to complete the circuit and turn the ac light on. What the ac light switch does is provide the electrical path for the ac compressor clutch to come on through the ac control relay which is controlled by the car's PCM(computer) when you want ac, but the ac light switch still needs to run through the fan blower selector switch to receive its power. You can turn on the fan without the ac light switch because it gets its ground path(negative) from the blower motor. So the blower motor has to work in order to provide a ground path for the fan blower selector switch to be functional. You could have a faulty blower motor which is why no air blows through the vents. The fan blower motor is located inside the car on the passenger side underneath the dash at the bottom end of the glove compartment box. You'll see it. It's right above where a person rests their feet on the floor. Therefore, if your 15 amp HVAC fuse is good, check to see if you have voltage at the blower motor connector. Unclip the connector and with the ignition on and the fan blower switch moved to any one of the first 3 selections, check for voltage using a multimeter. The voltage will vary because there is a blower motor resistor. Voltage should be higher on setting 3 than 1. If you do have voltage at the blower motor connector, check for a faulty blower motor. The auto repair manual will tell you how to do it using jumper wires.

It's normal that your car is running hot because the radiator fan works in conjunction with your ac compressor. If the ac is on, the radiator fan will be on and therefore the engine coolant temperature will stay in it's normal operating range. If the ac is off, the radiator fan will stay off as well and the engine coolant temperature gauge will begin to rise and show pretty hot (especially at idle). It will do this up until a certain degree then the radiator fan should turn on thermostatically and stabilize the temperature. It's scary and I know what your saying because it does that to my car if my ac isn't on. Don't worry it won't overheat.

Heat ventilation /ac fan will not shut off when the engine is shut off. also stays on when fan switch is in off position


The relay for the fan is stuck,look in the car manual for it`s location,it is most likely near the blower motor,but not always,jeep can put there relays anywhere.But replacement of the relay will solve the problem.

The heater/ac fan only works on speed settings 4 & 5


you might check your switch sounds like to me that your two lower speed sides of the switch maybe burnwed out.
