Question about 2001 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

Heater Fan does not function!

I had noticed for some time that when the heater fan motor was on that there was excessive noise from the blower, seemingly coming from the engine compartment.  Now no matter what level the fan is placed on (four settings low to high) there is absolutely nothing.  I have checked fuses only...all OK! What next?

If fuses are good then you need to unplug the blower motor connector and check to see if you have power going to it. From the previous noises you were hearing it sounds like the blower motor has failed.

Heater is blowing cold air and there is a noise coming from around the blower motor area?


Check your coolant reserve tank and fill it if needed.

If the coolant is fine try flushing the heater core, follow ChrisFix's instructions in the vid linked below.

As a side question:
Were there any loose wires that could have been caught near the fan when you replaced it? They'll make a buzz noise if they're touching the fan blades.

Fan making clanking noise like it is hitting something the part seems to be located in the lower left front passenger side


sounds like blower motor fan for heat, the motor itself can be going bad or something is hitting fan blade inside heater box, I have seen all different things in heater boxes including acorns , leaves and general debris causing noises when fan for heater runs, you need to take it apart and check for anything that might be hitting fan if not motor is going bad and needs replacement, good luck.

Heater fan not operating


Most of the time when a heater blower quits working it is the blower switch that fails rather than the motor. Blower switch can be accessed in the dash panel.

Never just replace any item because someone suggested it may have failed. Before replacing anything, you need to check each item for any signs it's bad. In addition to what I mentioned, the blower motor itself can also cause a problem if it is worn out and is drawing too much amperage to operate. If the blower makes any noise or the wiring becomes warmer than it should be after replacing any damaged parts, look at the motor. Bad motor ground can cause problems as well so check that too.

There is no fan belt Cassandra. It is possible that the blower motor is shot. Take it in to a well known shop and have them look at it. DO not run the AC unit it's been repaired if the fan motor is binding for some reason it will make the wiring going to the unit hot and could result in a compartment fire.
