Heater and a/c fan switch

When I turn on the heater or air cond., and then turn the fan switch, the fan doesn't blow. There is no high or low fan speed. Is there a fuse?

Condenser fan not engaging

Possibly low on refrigerant. When system is low on freon, it does not build up enough high side pressure to engage the condenser fan . When pressure is high enough. a high side pressure switch kicks on the cond. fan to maintain high side pressure. Have the system evacuated and recharged to proper level.

Air/heat not blowing from vents, can feel the heat but it's not blowing, I turn the knobs to high blow and it won't do anything, its cold outside,

if the fan does not increase speed as turned up replace resistor assembly usually in heater housing under dash.if doesn,t nave separate resistor is the fan switch

My heater won't blow out any air unless it is on high with the fan blowing.

Hello let me verify.
1 heater wont blow out warm air unless on high?
possible clogged airfilter.low on coolant or antifreeze.

2 heater wont blow any air unless on high?
Could be a bad switch low ane med do not work.

Temperature gauge fluctuates and the heater blows cold air

Definitely check your fluid level in your radiator. Top it off all the way. I've seen that happen multiple times on cars that were low on anti-freeze. If that doesn't work try replacing your thermostat. It's cheap and the easiest place to start if topping off the fluid doesn't get you fixed up.

Air conditioner blows hot air inadvertantly.

possibl ac compressor clutch problem,cooling fan at rad not working so ac goes into high press mode and turns off(so it doesn,t blow system apart,built in safety)not enough r134 in system(low charge)

My 1999 Tahoe's air cond gets warm when you idle. Is there a fan or something that should be blowing when sitting still?

the electric fan should switch on at a stop at idle for the condensor to disapate the heat. If the fan doesnt come on not enough air flow will keep the system hot. A low freon level will compound this issue.

1995 GMC A/C fan only works on high???

Two possible problems. First the Freon level might be too low to allow the low pressure protection switch from letting electricity get to your compressor's clutch. This is just a 'most likely' reason, there can be others.

But then you definitely have a problem with the heater resistor pack that is mounted in the heater's air stream somwhere behind the glove box. This device allows for low, and medium fan speeds but needs to be cooled or else it will melt and open up electrically. When that happens you 'loose' fan speeds except for high which is 12 volts direct to the heater motor.

This year GM pickups needed the HEPA air filter but did not have one so that all manner of hay trash, leaves and you name it would plug up the air conditioner evaporator inside the cab which in turn stopped enough air flow to the heater resistor pack which causes it to fail and you wind up with no DOT required defroster AND carbon monoxide preventing air flow into the cabin. There is law and how they avoided a class action suit is beyond me but you are looking at about a hundred dollars to replace the resistor pack and heater switch too.

You might have minimum success blowing the trash out of the evaporator backwards after you take it all apart, as a passenger when you kick the 'heater', that is right where you need to go to clean out the evaporator. It's only 1/2 inch thick and on the bottom of the pile.

If you have good air flow on high then you can disregard the blowing out of the evaporator and just concentrate on getting to the resistor pack - we just changed it with the switch panel to get it all done with in one shot. There is an outside chance that fixing the resistor pack/switch will return your compressor's voltage as well, there is no telling how that switch has it's failsafes integrated.

Compressor will not turn off but cannot find the location of the low pressure switch to change it. blows cold but will not cycle off...

there is a thermistor switch located in evaporator case(thin black single or 2 wires) that makes the compressor cut in and out (cycle) it monitors evaporator temperature.
check head pressures with air cond charging station or gauge set and monitor pressure on high and low side (150-200kpa on low, 1500-1800kpa on high good average depending on ambient temp) if it is low on gas due to leak this can also keep compressor running longer due to evaporator temp not reaching lowest threshhold to cut compressor out
