Question about 2004 Pontiac Vibe

Open Question

Having a problem with the fan for the heater/defrost/air conditioner cutting in and out. It will stop or refuse to start all together, but then come back on again by itself. When on, the fan kind of makes a surging noise. Each time I take it to the shop, the fan works just fine... very frustrating. The switch/fan also makes a clicking noise when it is set on defrost only. The air conditioner needs to be on to stop the clicking sound. Your help is appreciated!

SOURCE: Overheating and heater not work

there is a valve on the water pump and one on the thermostat housing open those up one at a time until you get a little bit of antifreeze come out then tighten them back up. All you will be doing is bleeding the air out of the cooling system. my car was doing the same thing after I changed my thermostat.

SOURCE: heater fan blowing intermittently or not at all

Most likely it does, if you can hit the motor and it will run. I can't say for sure but you might want to chk. to see if you got a heater blower motor resister. There located (if its got one) around the heater motor and it controls blower speeds, might be worth checking out.

unhook your battery unplug the harness that's touchy get a sharp object that you can pry the connectors together with you will see them wide open crimp then tight enough to get a good tight fit, the amperage draw from the motor has stretched them out and when it gets warn with current passing threw it opens up and loses contact. while it's apart take a emory board and clean the flat spades on the other side so you have a good connection.

SOURCE: Air conditioner on 2002 Pontiac blowing hot air, although freon is not low...also makes a clicking noise.

Take it to a garage and have them evacuate the system and refill with refrigerant. you have air and non condensibles in the refrigerant system.

SOURCE: On my 2005 Pontiac Vibe the heater fan does not work all the time

If it works some times then it is probably the switch.

Why my A/C condenser fan won t stop running, dodge ram 2008


To clarify, the compressor and fan will run in defrost mode. The compressor and fan runs to dry out the air blowing onto the windshield.
Now if the condenser fan runs in "heat" you may have a problem with the fan relay or the main controller.

Air conditioner


sure.

what is your goal hot air, you never said,

got full fan speed? on high>? sure.
got full engine coolant heat 180F or more holding??? if not all is lost.
if car has a heater core water valve is it open>?
are the 2 heater core water tubes both fully hot,(hand test)
yes> good.
now you need air flow through the core (heater)
that means the damper most be open,, is it?

in that order. (heat)
the dampers on hondas can be complex. (10x on electric damper motors , aka, damper actuators)
see part 5 and 6 here

the fSM covers the complex tests of dampers, and not having
a real FSM makes this near impossible.
why , because your dampers are no like anyothers on earth.
other cars use different types. and are all unique .
unlike CABLES
unlike vacuum servos.
see>?

here are the basics for heat.

The heater works but when the defrosters are


The Air conditioner compressor is seizing when the compressor clutch trys to engage. When you put on the defroster the air conditioner automatically comes on to take humidity out of air.

Heater problem


is your heater set on defrost this will cause your engine fan to run because it turns on the compressor for air conditioner this helps to extract moisture from your warm air defrost  and the fan in the engine compartment helps keep it the engine cool from the extra load on the engine this is normal

Heater/air conditioner


check to make sure you fan is working it is usuallt either on the firewall on the passanger side under the hood. it will have a cover over it with a hose going in it. if that is not kicking on than you need to replace the fan.
