Question about 2003 Honda Odyssey

Blower motor only works on high and a/c quit at same time

Wellllllllllllllllllll was a "nice" ride back form the beach in storms so bad people were pulling off the highway and here we were with no a/c to clear the windows and baking at all the stops in the van stuffed with beach junk,toys and kids ha ha.

Okay the van.Last night the a/c stoppped putting out cold air.Then we noticed both front and rear air controls on fan speed ONLY works on high speed. Was late but checked as many fuses related to a/c and any mention of "fan" and had no luck.

Only vehicle we have (had) with air so sure would appreciate any thoughts.

Thanks in advance.

Blower stopped working on 2002 dodge caravan

Someone would need to check the blower motor and the resistor for voltage and ground.

My fan motor quit working.... then it works... and it quits... i pulled the dash and there is no power at the switch for the fan

Thats not how it works. The blower motor has power and the switch GROUNDS the cicuit through the blower resistor (lower speeds) or directly (high speed) Check for power at the blower motor BLACK/LIGHT GREEN is POWER. BROWN/YELLOW is ground. If you have power and ground but the motor doesnt work, then its bad. If you rap on it and it works for a while, its bad. If there is no power at the switch, the motor is bad.

The heater blower motor on a '92 transport has been replaced but quit working again. Is there a resistor that has possibly gone bad? And if so where is it located?

2004 focus 80,000 miles/6 weeks ago, using ac with blower on high, blower gradually shut off and car produced bad smell. Drove home with ac off, blower off, had car checked and nothing found. Now it's...

The 'whirring' sound from the blower motor could be a dry bearing or damaged armature (part of blower motor that the brushes ride on), or just wore brushes. The smell could be the motor winding wires burning due to blower motor bogging down and overheating. You can replace blower motor with new or salvaged one.

1. blower motor is bad (if case alot times will take resistor or relay out with it)

2. blower resistor (conrols fan speeds usally one speed will go out first example still have high speed but now low)

Heater would only work on high for last two years. One day it quit working, but we found that a fuse had blown. Now, a few weeks later, it quit again. This time it is not a fuse. The car is a 2000 Ford...

sounds like a bad swich. but since it all of a sudden quit on you the blower motor could be bad as well. you can connect power and ground to blower to see if it works. if it turns then the swich is bad.

I have a 2005 Avalanche in a current snow storm the blower motor has quit completly I have checked the fuse under the hood it was good Do you think it could be a relay or the motor there were no noises it...

There is a good chance that the blower resistor wire harness has melted, it's common for this to happen when the blower is set on the high for long periods of time. The high current through the wires will melt the harness and connector on the blower resistor and at times blower it self. Inspect the wire harness and fan switch it self for any damages.

There has been a service bulletin issued for that concern. Here is a copy of it, notice, it says to repair the connector at the resistor. A/C - Blower Motor Inop. or Works On Low Speed Only Bulletin No.: 05-01-38-012C
EI05082 - Loss of Blower Motor Speeds Except for Low Speed or Inoperative (Replace Blower Motor Resistor and Resistor Module Connector)
Remove the blower fuse, Full size Trucks and Utility Vehicles - Htr A/C & HVAC 1 fuses

Lower the hush panel or close-out panel enough to gain access to the resistor module connector, Disconnect the connector from the resistor module. Remove the tape from the wiring harness to expose the wiring.

Cut the wires back far enough from the connector to eliminate any melted insulation on the wire. Use the old connector as a map for splicing the wires for the new connector. Be sure to use the correct crimping tool from the terminal repair kit J 38125. Use only Duraseal splice sleeves. Other splice sleeves may not protect the splice from moisture or provide a good electrical connection.

Install the new connector. Use the yellow splice sleeves provided with the connector. Install new blower motor resistor. Reinstall the fuse or connector block. Test the blower motor to make sure all speeds are functional. Reinstall the hush panel/close-out panel.

Good luck and this should take you about 30 min to do if your good with tools, but under 45 min.

of the blower motor makes a howling or grinding noise the motor is going bad. blower control modules are common and will not give you all the blower speeds.

My heater fan quit working. I don't know if the problem is with the fan or the electrical system (fuse?).

First place to check is fuse box. Look at F-20. It is under the dash, left of the steering wheel.

Here's a link to the fuse box legend...

Here's a link to show you where the fuses sit in the box...
