Turn the key on and unplug the coolant temp sensor to see if the fans will turn car does not need to be running. There should a few relays hi speed fan, lowspeed fan. It is also possible that the fan motors are bad as well. The different speeds are opertating at different voltages and when high speed kicks in enough voltage is supplied to power up the fan however the lowspeed may be requiring to much voltage to operate with in the fans parameter. Attached is your fan circuit wiring diagram Alrighty my fans arent working when my car grand - a3de536.gifIf you remove the relays one at a time a run a jumper wire between terminals 87 and terminal 30 on the relay you should get the fans to come on. This should work with both relays but make sure to only try what at a time. The terminal numbers will be located on the relays. Pay close attention to the lowspeed relay because when you jump the high and it works but jumping the low does not it may be the actual fans.

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

1997 pontiac grand prix gt,the heat and defrost will not work. have replaced the blower,5 prong fan relay,and the fan control switch.do not know what else to do. i have checked all fuses,and all are fine


I had the same issue, however my blower motor did not work at all, heat or AC, it just did not work. It was the blower motor resistor. When I took mine out, it was brown and melted. Got a new at the junkyard for a few bucks. Works great now.

P0481 on grand prix 2002. cooling fans work with a/c on and relays seem ok. vehicle temp gauge opertaes ok and does not seem to get hot.


sounds normal, the fans were made to run continuous w/ ac running, but on sensor when ac is off. if car isn't overheating, the fans are probably running from time to time ,but your just not catching them running
