The blower motor is located under your glove compartment on the passengers side.Remove the grey piece being held in by 3 plastic fasteners. Its the piece with the light for the passanger flour board in it. You will see the bottom of the blower motor. You will have to remove 3 screws, a wire plug and a rubber hose that just pulls off to get the motor out.The blower motor is located right behind the glove box. -------- Thanks.Helpmech.

If you have auto climate control, replace the blower motor controle module.

If you have Manual climate control, replace the blower motor resistor assembly.

Both are in the same place, on the bottom of the blower motor itself. Take off the plastic kick piece at the bottom of the glovebox to access the bottom. You'll see small screws holding the piece to the blower motor. From there, empty your glovebox and open it. You'll see an access hole to the left, stick you finger in there and depress the spring loaded piece to drop the door upside down. There you'll have access to the electrical connector from the blower resistor to the blower motor. Very easy job and is a very very common thing to go bad.

Location of the blower motor


from autozone.com: access from engine compartment


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION


See Figures 1, 2 and 3

  1. Disconnect negative battery cable.

7c87335.gif
Fig. 1: Exploded view of the blower motor assembly
  1. For the 3.1L engine, remove the alternator belt, then remove the alternator and position aside.
  2. For the 2.5L and 3.3L engines, remove the power steering pressure hose from the power steering pump.
  3. For the 3.0L engine, remove the serpentine belt.
  4. For the 3.0L and 3.3L engines, remove the retaining bolts from the power steering pump bracket, then set the pump aside.
  5. Detach the blower electrical connector, then, if accessible, remove the cooling tube.

When cutting the blower motor cover, make the cut just the thickness of the cover, which is1/ 8 inch (2mm) thick. Cutting deeper than that may damage the cooling tube.

For 1992-98 vehicles, partially cut the blower motor case cover, as shown on the cover. Cutting completely around the cover is NOT required. Swing the cut potion of the cover down.



973a989.gif Fig. 2: Some later model vehicles require you to cut the case, on the indicated lines, in order to access the blower motor

  1. If previously accessible, disconnect the cooling tube.
  2. Unfasten the attaching screws/bolts and remove the blower motor from the case.

1956a4c.jpg
Fig. 3: On 3.0L engines, you must remove the power steering pump for access to the blower motor
  1. If necessary, remove the fan from the blower motor.
  2. The installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
  3. If the case was cut during removal, secure the cover using the three retaining clips. Tighten the blower motor screws to 44 inch lbs. (5 Nm).
  4. Connect the negative battery cable, then start the engine and check the blower motor for proper operation.

My 94 Sundance heater/AC blower motor has quit. I've bought a new resister, but cannot find where it's located. Any help?


The blower motor resistor is located in the same duct that the blower motor blows through. If you see the blower motor, within a foot of it is the resistor. The blower motor actually blows over the resistor to keep it cool. The blower motor is usually only in 1 of 2 different locations. On passenger side, access under the hood or under dash access behind glovebox. In both cases the resitor will be in the duct that the blower motor blows through.

Fig. 1: Blower motor assembly and resistor locations


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. If equipped, remove the Vehicle Control Module (VCM) from the engine compartment.
  3. Remove the coolant recovery reservoir.
  4. Disconnect the blower motor cooling tube.
  5. Unplug the electrical connector(s) from the blower motor, as necessary.
  6. Remove the blower motor-to-case screws, then carefully withdraw the blower motor from the case.

To install:
  1. Install the blower motor to the case and secure using the retaining screws.
  2. Engage the electrical connector(s) to the motor, as necessary.
  3. If moved on early model vehicles, reposition and secure the A/C vacuum tank.
  4. Connect the blower motor cooling tube.
  5. Install the coolant recovery reservoir, then if equipped, install the VCM.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.

Utility Models
See Figure 6
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. If equipped, remove the Vehicle Control Module (VCM) from the engine compartment.
  3. Remove the coolant recovery reservoir.
  4. Disconnect the blower motor cooling tube.
  5. Unplug the electrical connector(s) from the blower motor, as necessary.
  6. Remove the blower motor-to-case screws (the lower screw is on the bottom front of the cover).
  7. Disconnect the harness from the blower motor.
  8. Use a razor or utility knife to cut through the cover on the cut line as neatly as possible because the access cover has to be reinstalled.
  9. Starting with upper half of the cover, tear the remaining part of the access cover from the remaining portion. Then remove the lower half of the cover in the same manner.
  10. Remove the blower motor assembly.

To install:
  1. Install the blower motor assembly.
  2. Connect the two halves of the access cover together using the three flange clips.
  3. Using black duct tape, place a piece of the tape along the bottom lower edge of the lower half of the lower cover only. The tape has to be the full width of the cover.
  4. Install the access cover onto the case.
  5. Install the screw and align the cut areas.
  6. Seal the cut areas using black weaterstrip adhesive. Do not use RTV to seal the assembly. The weatherstrip adhesive bead should be as straight as possible to ensure a neat and professional finish to the cover. Allow the adhesive to set at least 15 minutes until it skins over.
  7. Attach the electrical connections.
  8. Attach the cooling tube and install the coolant recovery reservoir.
  9. If removed, install the VCM.
  10. Connect the negative battery cable and refill the coolant reservoir to the proper level.
