2002 Pontiac Montana

My fan in my van doesn't blow the air very hard and when I put it on 5, it completely shuts off. I just had the resistor swith replaced and it solved nothing. Any other suggestions?

    I can't comment on the # 5 fan speed, but the blow hard problem, you may want to check the cabin air filters. Located thru the back of the glove box. Open up the rectangle door at the back, and then you will see a second one, open up that and you will need to reach in on the left and pull out 2 , 5x8 ( or so ) filters.( they are stacked one on top of the other)

    This helped my problem.

I actually replaced the resistor in the van. It helped the fan blow a little better, but by all means it isn't great. My level 4 is more like somewhere between 1 and 2. It seems that in my van, there is also a resistor switch for the auxillary fan as well. I am also having that replaced today. I suppose if that doesn't work, I will be looking at a new climate control switch alltogether. I know the blower motor is good so I am running out of things to replace...besides the van itself.

You have to Replace your blower motor Resistor. Your blower motor fan is on the passenger side, up under your glove box. Pull the fan out and the Resistor is right there on the right hand side. Its a little electrical box very easy to do. You just unplug the old one and plug the new one right in.

Sounds like an electrical issue likely in the harness that runs from the body to the gas tank or close to the ECM and the wiring may be rubbing against the body close to the ECM and shorting out. Look for lumps in the wires or green corroded connectors.

2005 Pontiac Montana SV6 heater blows cold when slowing to idle

How cold is it there and does your engine cool down any while going slow? If it does it may mean you need a hotter thermostat installed, My first thought would be to check the coolant level in the radiator and the coolant reservoir! Hope this helps and Merry Christmas
