Question about Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

I have a 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix. I have replaced the blower motor, but that did not correct the problem of no air coming out. So I purchased the resistor, but can not locate it in the dash! I was told I could do it myself, but need to know where it is located in order to replace it. Help!!!!

The Blower Motor Resistor Block is usually located in the air duct on the output side of the blower motor. It is placed here so that air flow from the fan helps stop the resistiors from overheating and burning out. It should be obvious once you look near to where you replaced the blower motor.

I can not get the blower motor to come on and there is no power coming to the blower motor

You'll need to replace the blower relay. The part is cheap and a parts house at the dealer will tell you where it is located under the dash. Not too hard to replace.

My heater in my 2004 Grand Prix would work one day then blow nothing the next. It did this for a while now nothing comes through the vents, would it be the blower motor?

Yes, it probably is the blower motor. They also tend to burn the connector that goes to the blower motor when this happens the way you described it happened. You may have to replace both to fix it correctly.

My 1997 grand prix leaks through the blower motor when it rains. I took the cowl off and you can see right into the blower motor. Is there supposed to be a cover over the blower motor intake.

Hello, you will need to install a part called a deflector.

1997 Pontiac Grand Prix GT; Elec problem with fan

Replace the blower resistor that is mounted next to the blower motor on the passenger side of the vehicle.
This will restore correct blower operation and I suspect it is also back-feeding voltage resulting in your electrical issues.
Two screws hold the blower resistor into the heater case and it is very easy to replace.
Good luck

Blower motor not working

Try replacing the blower motor resistor, it has different resistances for each speed. Mounted on the passenger side air duct, it is kind of a ***** to get to but you can see the harness if you invert and shove your head up into the footwell.
