It is far more likely that the resistor has failed than that the fan has failed. If the fuse is good, go here for replacement instructions.

Where is the hvac fan resistor pack located

It is in the main hvac housing duct, close to the blower. It has two small screws holding it in the duct, and a 4 or 5 wire plug connected to it. Depending on the style hvac unit, the blower either pulls or blows air across it. It can look like a circuit board, or has several rows of wire coils. It gets really hot and must be forced air cooled any time the blower is on.

The fan for heat/ac has gone out. Does dash get removed in repair work? For the last year the force control has not functioned as it should. Hi would be barely blowing sometimes. What would be the relative...

This may be just a blower motor (a/c fan) resistor issue. This resistor, depending on your vehicle is usually located near the blower motor. Remove the blower motor to locate it. This resistor controls fan speed, when they fail some or all fan speed may not work.

My 2003 rodeo fan blower sounds like it has something stuck in the fan when engaged. The sound resemble a "card in the spokes of a bicycle wheel noise"...

It is possible that there is something in the fan cage. More than likely it will be a piece of paper, such as a receipt. You will need to locate the fan blower, remove it, and check what is inside. This should take care of your problem.

My a/c will not blow out air. You can feel the

Sounds like a blower motor not turning the blower. Could be elecrical. Check fuses that control the blower motor or blower motor relay. If these seem to be okay, locate the blower motor relay and try replacing it with a known working relay of the same style. If the A/C begins to blow, then you need a new relay. If not, you'll be looking into the blower motor or fan. Make sure your cooling fans function while your A/C is engaged.

Air Control Fan

No Air coming out... What I would first, is check your Fuse Box, Look for the Fan Fuse & replace.. If Fan still doesn't work, Find your Fan ( Blower ) relay, Should be located on Fender, and Replace.. Finally if Blower still Isn't working at this Point, I suggest changing the Blower, as a Last resort.. Let ME know if this Helps you... Have a good one!!!
