The blower motor resistor is bad.It is located on the passengers side by the blower motor.You will need to replace it.Just follow the blower motor noise when is is on and you will find the resistor very close to the blower motor.The wires from the blower go to the resistor.This is a common problem for most makes.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Heater control only works on high and fan doesnt blow heat thru the vents sounds like its a fan being blown in the wind.


100%: Heater Control on High Only?
This is the Blower Motor Resistor that needs to be replaced. It is located adjacent to the Blower Motor.

I have a 2000 Oldsmobile Alero and the heat wont work on any settings; why?


It's possible the "heater control valve" is not working. Could be a cable or vacuume line. What ever controls it.
Also the temp controls, behind the dash, ARE controled by vacuume. Could be a line is kinked or come off.
Hopefully the heater core is not stopped up....

2000 Olds Alero. Cooling/Heating fan stopped


The blower is on the right hand side under the dash. You are right in thinking the blower resistor is the problem. The resistor is in the heater box behind the blower. Only 2 bolts hold it in but the back one can be a challenge to remove. The bolt is 5.5 mm.

Check for power and ground with a test light at the resistor connector. You should have power on the colored wires in the various switch positions. The black one is ground.

2000 OLDSMOBILE ALERO HEATER DOESNT WORK


The new vehicles with a 5 speed fan run all the speeds through the resistor and these are a very common failure. You should be able to buy one at any parts store.
