Blower low speeds do not work. I have heard it might be a resistor. If so where is this located and how do I get to it?

The Blower Fan Resistor Block is usually located in the air ducting adjacent to the Blower Fan. The Resistor Block consists of 3 or 4 coils of special resistance wire attached to terminals which connect to the wiring that comes from the fan switch and then to the Blower Fan. The block is on the output side of the fan unit so that the airflow from the fan past the coils inside the duct assists in preventing them from overheating and burning out.
Access to the Resistor Block is from under the dash. To replace, remove the multi-pin connector and then undo the screws holding in the block. Check air duct for leaves and dirt which may have caused the coils to fail. .Replacement is the reverse procedure.

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.

Heater fan only blows on high speed


most likely the resister. Not very expensive part and should be easy to change out if you know where its located ( usually under the dash) You can buy a repair manual for your model at any parts store, and be sure to ask the parts guy if he knows where its located. he might just be able to save you the cost of the manual. Good luck with it.

My blower motor only works on 1 & 2 & 3 speeds dont work on 4 & 5. I was told to buy a blower motor. Need to know where this is located to replace on my 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer


If your blower works at some speeds and not others, the likelihood of the blower motor needing to be replaced is low. The more common problems would be either the switch or the resister that regulates the motor speed. The resistor is usually located in the air duct under the dash.

Vetilation doesn't work in positions 1,2,3, works only in position 4.. help please!


You have got a defective blower motor resistor. Your blower resistor is located just to the left of your blower motor (which is located under the passenger side of your dash. You may find you have a carpeted covered piece of cardboard that is located on the underside of the dash (below the glove box ) if so you'll have to to remove it by removing the retaining clips, Now look up behind the glove box and you"ll see the blower motor and just to the left of it there is rectangular unit with a connector with six wires within the connector , the colors of the wires will be as follows (black and orange)(black and yellow)(two wire's that are black and white)(black and blue)and (black). the blower motor resistor is totally bypassed when you turn your fan speed to high ! The blower speed is controlled by the ground side of the blower. When you request any of the other three speeds the ground circuit is routed through the blower resistor which is made up of three resistors.( resistors reduce the current flow) and each resistor reduces a predetermined about of current.So when you request medium high blower speed the ground circuit runs through one resistor, if you request medium low the ground circuit runs through two resistors , and through three resistors to obtain low blower speed, Normally what happens is the blower resistor blows out the circuit between the fan switch and the blower motor resistor which results in the lost of all lower speeds,no different then the wire to the blower motor just being disconnected.Replace the blower motor resistor and you will in great shape .Thanks for using fixya

I need to locate my blower motor resistor on my 1999 S-10. do u know where it is located on my s-10?


The resistor is located under the hood on the passenger side. At the back of the engine compartment you need to locate the airbox it can be identified by a circular piece that's right beside the fender on the firewall (this is your blower motor) to the right if it (looking from the front of the truck) about 4 -6" you will see a wire plug. Unplug this connector and locate the four screws that attach it to the air box. Remove these screws and pull the resistor from the housing.

Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

My low speed fan doesnt work on my ford f-150 1995 truck


The blower motor resistor is responsible for blower speeds less than high or full. The resistor is located on the passenger side underdash next to the blower motor, should be 2 screws and a wiring harness, replce the resistor and see if your fans speeds work correctly. Hope this helps, let me know.

Low speeds on Blower Motor do not work.


this is caused by a burnt out blower motor speed control resistor module.

2004 Nissan Altima Blower Resistor


there is a blower resistor located near blower motor and housing under glove box area it is one connector with about 5 wires to it and looks thin, held by two screws this resistor controls fan speeds - possibly it will look burned may even be hot to the touch so be carefully it is the most probable cause since you obviously have power to it and ground only being the fan speeds the problem.
