Blower motor switch


The blower motor switch on your car lets you control the power to your blower motor. The blower motor is a small motor that blows out hot or cold air through your vents. If the switch goes out, you will not be able to control the blower motor. This can lead to miserable conditions in the vehicle in either extreme hot or cold weather. The switch is not hard to replace and will take about an hour to change.

Blower Motor on 2000 Saturn SL


The blower motor is connected to a termic switch, when the motor is fine and fuse is ok, is the switch that must be replaced.

Ensure the fuse is ok first.

Blower motor problems


If ,and when,your blower motor has problems,and it will not blow on the low speeds, consider the blower resister,it is what controls the speeds for your blower motor.Now,replacing the blower resister is the thing to do,but two things to check for also,,the connector to the blower resister,and to the back of the fan select switch,the one you control,on the dash.These connectors,including the fan switch can be burned,and need replacing also.Now the reason these go out,and burn,and melt the connectors,is,that the blower motor is pulling too many amps,even though the blower motor runs great,and sounds good,trust me,the blower motor is the reason,so replace all of these parts when you replace the resister.If the connectors are fine,and the blower switch is fine,of course they will not need to be replaced,but the blower motor is a must,or you just might have to do it all over again in a few months,along with the switch,and connectors I mentioned.

Heater switch replacment


Hello! it's my job to make things as easy for the customer as possible...Therefore I must ask why you want to replace the heater switch? Is it because you have lost one or two of the switch speeds? Your vehicle is noted for loss of the Blower Motor Resistor...
Changing the Heater switch means removal of the Climate Control Assembly which is not the easiest of jobs...I've included the process...But are you sure the blower resistor is OK? If you have lost 1,2, or all blower motor speeds it's more than likely the Resistor pack. And a lot easier to change...

Ieplaced the resistor to the blower motor Blower motor still does not work. Do i need to replace the blower motor or switch


If the Blower Motor does not operate on any speed, the blower resistor is most likely NOT the problem. To find out if it is the blower motr or the switch, test for power at the blower motor connector. If there is power the blower motor should be replaced. If there is no power, there could be several reasons for this including the blower control switch, the blower motor circuits or even a problem with your ignition switch.

Blower working on top 2 settings but no air comeing from vents


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. The possible causes due to which the blower is not working normally are fuse, blower resistor or a bad blower motor. Test the voltage at the blower with a test light. Please check the motor relay switch fuse under the dashboard. Use a multi meter to measure ohms for continuity. If these are fine, bypass the blower motor relay switch to make sure blower motor is running fine. Motor relay switch is right next to radiator fan relay switch under the hood. Pull out the blower motor relay switch to see 4 female pin holes. Test the relay switch using a 12 volts power source and a multi meter to measure continuity. If fan works after jumping the pin holes, then blower motor is fine but relay switch may be faulty. You may also need to replace the blower motor resistor. If still the problem persists, then you need to replace the blower motor.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

The thermistor is in the winding of the blower motor. Letting it cool down will let it run, but probably not long. the thermistor is not replaceable, replace blower motor
