My heater blowers dnt work and i need to knw where i can locate the resister blocks for my heater blowers so i can ghange them


Its located under dash,or near glove box.

The dash panel lower side has to be out.

HEATER BLOWER MOTOR


Its faulty blower motor resistor. The low and medium speed on blower motor is controlled by resistor and its actual speed is high. So because resistor is not working, blower motors actual speed which is high is working.


It can be faulty blower motor or faulty blower motor resistor. Get the blower motor inspected. If it's faulty it has to be replaced.

Where is the heater blower resistor located?


The resistor pack wires are usually attached to the same wires as the blower motor. I strongly recommend replacing the blower motor at the same time if possible. It's the blower motor that is usually the reason for the resistor pack going out. So if you put just the resistor pack in, and shortly after, it goes out again then you'll know the blower motor needs to be replaced.
I hope this info helps!~subyguru~

Need to replace ac/heater fan resistor I am not sure of the location does anyone know? Thank You


The Blower Motor Resistor is located on the passenger side firewall, not far from your A/C's H-Valve (or expansion valve), going inside of the vehicle. The blower motor resistor has a 4 or 5 way black connector plugged into it and this is the only visible portion of the Resistor you will see. Remove the wiring connector and remove the 2 or 3 screws with an 8 mm or 5/16" socket (8 mm and 5/16" are the same). Once the screws or fasteners are removed, just pull the blower motor resistor out of the firewall and if you look at it, it will have various coils of wire on it, sometimes it will show burnt coils, but you can always check the various coils with an Ohm-meter.

Aside from that, install the new Blower Motor Resistor and Voilà! Your inside Blower Motor should work just fine.

A brief note here, if your fan doesn't work when the fan switch is on High, then it's not the Blower Motor Resistor, but possibly the Blower Motor itself. Should this occur, please get back to me insofar as how to replace the blower motor and why the blower motor's wires have to be twisted...even with the new blower motor fan.

Best of Luck,

Blower motor only works on high


That would be a blower resistor problem. Very common problem on GM vehicles. The resistor is mounted in the heater case right next to the motor. Follow the wires going from the blower motor and they will go right to the blower resistor. There are usually 2 screws holding it to the heater case. Also know that GM had a problem with the plugs melting so check it carefully and replace it if needed. Good luck.

Durango vent blower fan


The blower motor resistors are known for going bad. Usually its because the blower starts drawing too much current. What I would recommend doing if you can and have the tools, is to check the blower motor connector to make sure 12 volts is present. If so than I would recommend replacing the blower motor resistor. Then if the same issue ever happens again and the blower motor resistor is bad again, you will need to replace the blower motor and the blower resistor as the final repair.
Here is some info about testing the resistor using a multimeter it you have one:

DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING- BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS, DISABLE THE AIRBAG SYSTEM BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. DISCONNECT AND ISOLATE THE BATTERY NEGATIVE (GROUND) CABLE, THEN WAIT TWO MINUTES FOR THE AIRBAG SYSTEM CAPACITOR TO DISCHARGE BEFORE PERFORMING FURTHER DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY.
Both the front blower motor resistor and the optional rear heater-A/C unit blower motor resistor can be diagnosed using the procedure that follows. For circuit descriptions and diagrams, refer to Air Conditioning/Heater in Group 8W - Wiring Diagrams.
  1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the wire harness connector from the blower motor resistor block.
  3. Check for continuity between each of the blower motor switch input terminals of the resistor and the resistor output terminal. In each case there should be continuity. If OK, repair the wire harness circuits between the blower motor switch and the blower motor resistor block or blower motor as required. If not OK, replace the faulty blower motor resistor block.
Here is the information on replacing the resistor:

REMOVAL
  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  2. From the passenger foot well area, remove the two hex screws used to secure the blower motor resistor.
  3. Unplug the front blower motor resistor from the wire harness connector.
  4. Remove the front blower motor resistor from the HVAC unit.
Here is an exploded view of the HVAC box. The resistor is #63 in the picture and the actual part may appear slightly different:

If any issues such as no voltage at blower connector or damaged or melted connector at the resistor then let me know.

Blower reisitor, 1998 Toyota Tacoma


The blower motor resistor is located in the heater box area, which is under the dashboard on the passenger side. You will find the resistor in the large squarish tube that leads to the center of the dash from the blower motor housing (right to left on an american vehicle). Unplug the large black wiring connector, remove the 2 phillips screws and the resistor is ready to pull out of the heater box.
