Devilwoman121103@yahoo.comblower fan only works on high usually and sometimes works on other settings but when it wont work on other settings it shuts a/c button off and daytime running lights wont work either and you hear a click in a white box under dash. is there a relay or something that could be causing this because i tried a different a/c control panel and that didnt help and i think the white box is for the day lights but how do they effect each other

Good Evening, the blower mainly working on high is normally a blower motor resistor located under the dash in the passenger footwell area a short distance from the blower motor. It is held in with 2 bolts and I would recommend if you replace it that you have a 1/4" swivel socket in between your socket and the extension to do it. Try that I'm sure it will work.

Fan wont blow at any speed

Blower fan needs to be replaced. You can sometimes get it to start by tapping the cowling under the dash [center area] with a rubber mallet [while ignition on and fan set to high. This will likely only work until it 's shut off again and the motor still needs to be replaced. This only verifies that it is in fact a bad motor and not a bad switch or resistor.
Replacement motors can be found on eBay and amazon for like $40.

Why wont my a/c or heater fan come on?

When the blower works only on the high setting its usually a bad blower resistor which is right near the blower motor. now you say it would always blow high regardless of the fan speed setting that would indicate probably the climate control unit or a connector problem somewhere. finally it not working at all may be the climate control unit or connection went bad even further. it might have a blown fuse or a bad blower motor in addition to the climate control unit or connector problem .check for power and ground at the blower motor. the power is supplied from fuses and may have a relay also. the ground is supplied from the climate control unit and goes through the resistor to control the fan speed. good luck

Gmc 2006 Sierra fan switch was not working on all settings now after being set on high it would not shut off then it stopped but smoke began coming out from under the passenger side dash

There is a resistor board in there that controls the voltage to the blower fan. When the resistor dies the fan only runs on high. The bad part is it overheats the wires and starts burning things. You will probably need a socket and pigtail too. Both available from the dealer. Usually not very expensive and you can do it yourself.

When i turn the air on in the front it wont work.but if i turn it on in the back it works just fine.sometimes i can kinda hear it come out the front but nothing is comming out

If you mean you can't hear the fan running in the front, but can hear it run in the back? I think thats what you're saying. There are 2 separate fans. If the front fan works on high speed only, its the blower resistor at fault, usually has a burnt resistor. If no fan speed on any settings, then the front blower motor is faulty. both are common problems. Both are assessable under the passenger side dash, behind lower panel. Find the blower motor and check for power on the purple wire and good ground on the black wire (test light if available) if good power, needs blower motor.

Heater & cooling fan only works on high.Power locks don't work.

there is a resistor for the heating and cooling fan speed. this controls the amount of voltage to your fan, which controls the speed. usually when the fan only works on high it will bypass the resistor and use the full 12 volts for the high setting. your power locks might be part of this circuit. i would check the resistor first then check the locks. usually the resistor is behind the high low switch

Climate control switch does not work in lower modes only in high.

The pontiacs have an issue with the ignition switch, I have a 2001 grand prix that did the same. The ac fan would only work on 5 and the headlights would go off if on 1-4 replace the switch and all is fine.

A/c fans wont blow

If the fuse is blown for the blower then there is a short, that is not an answer, go to the blower and check to see that the blower motor connector has 12 volts to it when the blower is set to high speed on control, if it does then u need a new blower motor, if it doesn't then the control switch is defective or the blower motor speed control resistor is defective.
