Heat/ac blower only works on high! - 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix

Posted by on

  • felixbag Aug 09, 2008

    Hello,
    I have a 1999 Grand Prix with the same problem. The ac only works on the highest setting. When I try the 4 lower settings there is no reponse from the ac plus my daytime headlights go out. This was happening in the winter with the heater also, the lights would also go out.
    Yesterday my husband replaced the blower resistor. And yes the new one did not look like the original resistor. We called parts to make sure we had the correct one.
    Well, that did not help, there is no change.

My problem started the in a similar way but first the digital information center went blank, then the Fan only worked on 5, the daytime driving lights went next, and then even 5 on the Fan stopped working.

In my case is was the ingnition switch. I know this sounds strange, but I got the information from oher posts on here and had the dealer replace it and sure enough it fixed all of the problem, fan, DIC, and DDL.

It turns out that the ignition switch has all kinds of things routed through it, some that make sense and some that don't.

For me it was not a DIY job, I saw a 10 picture step by step guide on here someone posted and said forget that. It cost me about $350 to have it done by the dealer. The switch was $169 at dealer prices and the rest was labor. They waived the diagnostic fee since I was the one who suggested what the problem might be after they wasted a day scratching their heads. They did waive all of the labor time they put in chasing the wrong problem only becuase I had suggested the Ignitiion Switch on day one, but they did not listen...

Good Luck

The resistor board is failing. If you wait long enough the blower won't work at all. The redesigned resistor board looks much better. The resistor board is next to the blower motor up against the firewall behind the glove box. If you follow the wire from the blower motor you should find it. I couldn't fully tighten the two screws up against the firewall due to the angle.

My Kia Sedona 2012 minivan front heat and ac does not work while the rare heat, ac and defrost works


Are the controls lighting up? dose the blower motor work? If the controls don't light up you may have a control head locked up you can do a reset by unplugging the IOD fuse for 2 mins and then plugging it back in. If the all the lights work in the control head and the blower isn't working try turning the front blower on high and then tapping the motor itself if it works after hitting the motor you will need to buy a new blower motor.

does it blow full speed on high
do you have 12v on terminal A of blower , term B is 0v ground

Blower for heat and AC


Try this. When the blower is not working open the hood. Locate the blower on the passenger side near the firewall. Most likely it is covered with a thin rubber piece but it may not be. Turn the key to the run position. The engine does not need to be running. Turn the blower speed switch to high. Tap the blower with the handle end of a large screw driver. If the blower starts to work replace it.

Blower motor (AC/Heat) only works on High


It could be worn contacts on the HVAC selector switch. It could also be a bad blower motor but I would check the switch first; contacts lose continuity from a lot of use and wear down. both should be able to be had from a junkyard for rather cheap. I would suggest a loose connection but I don't think that is the case here unless the problem were intermittent.

Good luck!!

Blower for ac/heat only work on lower 3 levels.


Check the blower motor resitor. Use a 12v test light at the switch and notice the bulb brightness change as you switch settings.. Probably have a bad blower resiter.
