First check the blower motor speed controller, located on the blower motor housing, (where one of the two electrical plugs connects to). Remove the electrical plug and remove the two fastening screws, the speed controller comes out, check for short on the resistors, if no problem detected, perform the following test.
Turn ignition on. Press MAX A/C button on EATC control panel. Turn blower speed from high to low. If blower speed increases to high speed, then decreases to low speed, system is operating normally at this time. If blower speed does not increase to high speed and/or decrease to low speed, go to next step.
Turn ignition off. Check fuse No. 2 (30-amp) in central junction box, located behind dash, left of steering column. If fuse is okay, go to next step. If fuse is blown, replace fuse. Recheck system operation.
Disconnect blower motor 2-pin harness connector C167. Measure resistance between ground and blower motor harness connector C167 Brown/Orange wire terminal. If resistance is more than 10 k/ohms, go to next step. If resistance is 10 k/ohms or less, repair short to ground in Brown/Orange wire between central junction box fuse No. 2 and blower motor. See WIRING DIAGRAMS . Recheck system operation.
Remove fuse No. 2 (30-amp) from central junction box. Disconnect blower motor 2-pin harness connector C167. Measure resistance of Brown/Orange wire between fuse No. 2 socket and blower motor harness connector C167. If resistance is 5 ohms or less, go to next step. If resistance is 5 ohms or more, repair open in Brown/Orange wire. See WIRING DIAGRAMS . Recheck system operation. Replace fuse No. 2 (30-amp). Connect blower motor connector. Disconnect blower motor speed controller 5-pin harness connector C169, located in right rear of engine compartment, on evaporator. Measure voltage between ground and blower motor speed controller harness connector C169 terminal No. 4 (Orange/Red wire). See Fig. 9 . If more than 10 volts exists, go to next step. If 10 volts or less exists, repair open in Orange/Red wire between blower motor and blower motor speed controller. See WIRING DIAGRAMS . Recheck system operation

EATC CONTINUOUS CODES The EATC system will also display intermittent and hard faults that occur during normal operation. Display of continuous codes can be started at any time. Normal operation of the system stops when display is activated. Note that "°C" (Celsius symbol) will be displayed when in this mode. To enter continuous code display, press OFF and PANEL buttons together and then press AUTO button. Continuous intermittent and hard fault codes will be displayed. See EATC DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODE INDEX table.
To exit and clear all DTCs, press FRONT defrost button. Press FLOOR button to exit without clearing DTCs set before the last ignition cycle. Always exit continuous code display before powering system down. Intermittent DTCs are saved only after an ignition cycle. Intermittent DTCs will be erased after 80 ignition switch ON cycles.
NOTE:Always exit self-diagnostic test before powering system down.
To exit self-diagnostics and clear all DTCs, press FRONT defrost button on control panel. Display will show "888" for one second, then will go blank and all DTCs will be cleared. Any intermittent DTCs will be deleted after 80 ignition on-off cycles after condition occurs

What part controls switching air/heat from defrost to bi-level to floor & where is it located?

In the attached drawing, Part 32 moves Part 26 to direct the air flow to the desired locations. It uses vacuum to operate. The actuator may be bad or the vacuum hose my have come loose when the heater core was changed. With the car running but the blower off stick your head up under the dash on the passenger side and see if you hear a hissing sound. If so it's probably just a vacuum hose come off.

Have a 1990 buick electra....the 20 amp fuse which controls the air conditioning & heat area keeps blowing immediately once replaced. Any ideas?

this fuse probably controls the ac clutch operation and/or the blower fan motor.. Disconnect the ac clutch at the connection next to the clutch pack behind the pulley. fit new fuse and if it blows then the problem will be in the fan motor control/ motor. If not then it will be the ac compressor clutch pack

Controls for ac not working on 1998 buick century

see this steps and fix it. God bless you

Start the car and turn the air conditioning on. Allow the engine to run a few minutes so the air can cool. Check to make sure you have the proper buttons selected. This simple step may uncover the root of the problem.

  • 2 Adjust the air controls on the dashboard to see how they are working. If the controls move the way they should with the proper amount of resistance and stopping in the right places but have effect on the air, then the problem may as simple as a blown fuse. If the controls are not working at all, then the problem is in the control panel.
  • 3 Get to the fuse box in a Ford Explorer by removing the instrument panel to the left and slightly below the steering wheel. There is a fuse remover provided in the fuse box. A blown fuse will have a broken wire in it. In a Ford Explorer, this fuse is red number 10.
  • 4 Find the control panel by prying off the top instrument panel around the air conditioning temperature controls. Unscrew four screws, one in each corner, and remove the temperature control panel. Unplug four electrical connectors and one vacuum hose to the control panel.
  • 5 Listen for the blower motor to be properly working while the engine is running and the air conditioning controls are turned to high. Adjust them from low to high to make sure the blower motor noise increases and decrease accordingly.

    No ac nd my fan stop working completely

    Fuses blow because of higher than normal amperage in the circuit. Not sure what circuit the blown fuse is for but if it is for the fan the fan may be shorted therefore blowing the fuse. If you put fuse in while the ac was still on try shutting off the ac then putting the fuse in. See if it blows then if it doesn't then turn the ac on and if it blows you have at the very least isolated the system at fault.

    The AC on my 2002 chevy S 10 just suddenly stopped blowing cold air. The freon is full and the compressor is coming on. Any advice would be helpful in this Texas heat. Thanks

    If the freon is full and the compressor clutch is working,is the blower working, need more details, if it is, you could have a blocked orifice filter. or a bad high pressure switch located at the rear of the compressor.if the high pressure switch loses voltage or goes out, your cool air will come to a dead halt. check the high pressure switch for voltage. good luck!

    2001 jetta ac blowing hot air

    Nothing is hard if you have patience and some tools or maybe even a friend to help.

    Does the air go cool when moving down the road?
    Does the vent air blow?

    The fans for these are the same.

    It is located under the hood, passenger side, right up against the firewall. They usually come out from the front.

    Locate the fan motor - disconnect the wires - jumper to the battery with some clip leads, see if the fan runs. If it does, then not the fan and probably a fuse which is on the drivers side underneath the hood. It could also be the switching mechanism at that point, that's why try the heat and vent to see if anything changes.

    If not replace the motor.

    Let me know if there are any more fact to relay.
