I think access may be by removing the glove compartment - it was on the earlier Passats, but you really need a repair manual like Haynes or Bentley to guide you through the steps. It's likely to be quite a task.

Have you had a diagnostic check done - or checked the fuses? These might save you a lot of time and money.

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills. If they do not, please add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

99 pontiac grand am warms up but wont blow air through vents


You would need to figure out if the blower motor is operating at peak efficiency - if it is running fast on the high setting. If it is, the problem could be a blend door under the dash, or something else blocking air flow. If its not running fast, it could be the motor or a wiring problem. The resistor only cuts down current for the lower speeds.

1999 VW Passat AC/heat doesn't work? The belt broke this summer? I was told should still blow heat even if no belt?


If you are talking about the belt for the ac compressor, yes the heater should still work.
If the blower is not working, you will need to have the blower motor checked for voltage and ground.

Hi there, you need to take the blower motor out and power it to see if its not seased, if its not then replace the blower motor regulator. If the motor is seased then replace the blower motor.

99 GMC Sierra 4.8 1/2 ton 2 wheel drive new body style ac does not blow cold air from the front vents on the dash? Still get some cold air from bottom by floor vents,


if both vents are blowing air in general then you may need to get your air conditioner recharged, but if the front vents aren't blowing at all then you may just have a jammed vent flap and you can fix that from under the hood next to the blower motor. check you rowners maual for the exact location

I have a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited and the a/c and heat temperatures work but no air comes out of the vents. When I'm driving at high speeds minimal air seeps out of the vents but it never blows out...


Sounds like the blower motor relay and wiring pigtail. Junk yards are full of jeeps right now after Cash for Clunkers.Ready for the picking!
Just drive your to a junk yard and show someone there they will be helpful.

Blower Not Working In Speeds 1 to 3


Try to locate blower motor wires, usually up under dash on passenger side, maybe behind glove box, and follow wires from motor and they will usually connect to housing area, and real good chance that connection is your resistor pack if held on by screws or small bolts. Other place that you may find resistor is opposite side of firewall from blower, under hood. Look for connection at firewall, usually on passenger side.
