No, the battery will not run down due to this problem. When you shut off your truck and pull out the key, the power to the motor will be cut off and should stop blowing. Depending how your vehicle is set up, the blower will stop as soon as you shut off the ignition key, or when the door is opened like it does on my 2005 Chevy Uplander van. If your battery is running low, you either have a worn out battery or some extra accessory is loading it down.

The resistor pack which limits the current to your blower motor when your switch is set on the lower settings is most likely bad. These are usually located close to the blower motor. On my 2002 S10, it is located in the engine compartment on the passenger side, attched to the blower motor air duct. the dealer or local auto parts store will have this part. Unfortunatly, I have not changed one on your specific vehicle, so can't give you more detail than I already have.

Hope this helps.

Will bad blower resistor cause blower to stop working at all?


yes a bad resistor will. but also check the blower motor

The fan on my heater/ac stop working on settings 1-4 for awhile it worked on #5 but has now stopped altogether


The blower resistor has gone out but if blower is no longer working on speed 5 then either the blower motor is bad as well or the pigtail connector to the motor are bad. Check the plugs to the resistor and to the blower motor for insulation damage discolored or melted wiring.

2000 grand prix blower motor only worked on high for awhile now it doesnt work at all


in alot of cases the blower motor resistor burns
if you follow the blower connection to left you will the resistor plugs right in to the blower but make sure you check it before you buy it take it off and inspect it you will see burns on harness and resistor
its under the passiger side dashboard you will see the blower and to the left is the resistor i think you will need a 9/32 socket or 7mm its held by one screw
good luck

Blower motor quit entirely all speeds, was working yesterday no noises, checked 25 amp fuse is OK, been reading online about resistor problems of others, any other uses or how to check??


If things aren't running, about the best way to check the resistors is to find them and remove them... A visual inspection should tell you alot. Resistor wires that look like they have bubbled, scorched or cracked are a sure sign of failure. What is odd though is that typically if the resistor is the defective part, high speed will still work since it usually bypasses the resistor and goes direct to the fan motor... hmmm.
About the only issue I've run into with blower motors is that the brushes will wear down to nothing and there's no way of applying power to the motor. But the only vehicles I've ever encountered that on were really old. Unless Buick put in some real trash brushes, I can't imagine a person being able to run the blower long enough in 4-5 years to cause them to be eaten up like that.
I hope things work out for you.

2006 silverado 5 speed heat, the high speed is not working. I do have the 4 lower speeds


The switch, high blower speed relay or the wire harness at the blower motor has gone bad. The highest setting 5 has no resistor, so the blower runs on high but the high current flow ends up burning up the switch's contact on that setting or the relay and may be the resistor wire harness at the blower motor has gone bad. Common would be the switch it self, if the switch is good. Then it's going to be the blower relay or wire leads at the speed resistor by the blower motor under the glove box by the passenger leg compartment. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your Silverado running 100% again soon.

My fan selection only works on selection 4 and 5 what do I need to fix it?


replace the blower motor resistor this is the main cause of blower settings not to function. the resistor will be located on the blower motor housing. follow the wires from the blower motor to the resistor

The heater fan stopped working I am suspecting a fuse or the motor. When you turn the fan on nothing happens.


The resistor module,and the plug connector, and known problems in 1999-2006 blower motors for many GM trucks.

Did you also change the connector at the same time?

Here is a step-by-step check you can do to fix it. If you are only getting high speed (setting 5), then most likely you have a resistor problem, or the wiring connector to the resistor is bad. The ground wire prong being bad is a possible cause.

Check this for step-by-step checks:

AC only works on settings 3 & 5


souns like a bad blower resistor.the resistor controls the different speeds.sometimes every speed except the highest will stop working.the blower resistor is almost always near the blower motor.

2001 BMW 330i..Fan for AC/vent not working?


it's either a fuse or it's a bad blower motor, it could be a bad blower motor resistor but usually you'll get either high or low only, so if you have nothing on any speed, high low etc, and all the fuses are ok chances are it's your blower motor.
