SOURCE: 99 cavalier Smoke coming out from under dashboard!

now this may be a long shot... but i had a similar problem on my cutlass. but it wasnt wiring...... it was from the tube running from the head of my engine...... the smell and smoke were coming from hot oil coming out of the crank case vent tube and then being sucked into the air inlet for the heater/ ac.

since a electrical wire's protective cover is petroleum based as is oil.... they smell very similar

Replace the blower motor resistor. Remove the shroud below glove box, 2 screws and a snap-pop fitting. Be careful of the courtesy light. Remove the blower moter and disconnect the purple/black power connector to it - - you'll need this extra room to work with. 2 more screws, same size, 6.5mm on mine, 7or 8mm on some others, that holds the blower motor resistor in place. This replacement part is less than 40 bones at most parts store. Unplug, replace, re-install, test and you're on your way with about 2 hours of slow paced effort in your own driveway. Typical cost at a garage - up to $400, what a sham.

SOURCE: burnt plastic smell that burns your nose

sounds like it could be electrical then... have you done any changes to the electrical at all? rewiring, changing headlights, etc? I had a similar smell when I changed my headlights... new headlights were defective and were melting the housing and harness...

SOURCE: blower motor does not work

I had the same problem, replace, replace, replace. Check, check and recheck. What I found was the blower motor resistor, located in the blower squirrel cage area, two prongs and a curly wire, was bad. Took the new one back, (it ohmed out okay, continuity ok, all ok!) replaced it with another, and Bingo, problem solved. Frustrating to say the least. After two relays and a blower switch, and test, test and retest. It was a faulty resistor. Made in Mexico. And no guarentee, even though new, it works. Trial and error. Even the dealer parts are Honcho en Mexico. Thanks NAFTA. You gonna make us all welfare babies.

Burning plastic smell when cold out run heater and fan inside car and out


Are you loosing radiator fluid. sometimes the heater core will rupture and you will smell burn odor. also check for strange rubbing sounds or screeching coming from the blower fan motor. or engine exhaust manifolds are hot when car is on, make sure nothing is leaning on them which will cause a burn odor. Any odor coming from outside will find it's way inside through the fresh air vents.

No heat 2006 suburban all three zones passanger, driver and rear? Any ideas


Does the engine take for ever to warm up on the guage? If so it could a stuck thermostat , replace thermostat first, then if it does not work chech the rest of the heating system, does the fan motor work for the heat / ac ? if not check the fuse or relay for the blower fan motor and then check the blower motor it self. If the fan operates on all speeds it could be a heater core issue. Do you smell any anti freez inside your vehicle? if so it's more than likely your heater core is leaking, for sure if the inside of your windsheild gets fogged up while running the air conditioning or defroster. check the coolant levels also make sure that it is full. replacing a heater core is a difficult job and in most cases involves removing the entire dash from the vehicle, some chevy's you can replace it with out doing so, but most cars/trucks you will have at least a 2 day job on your hands and some repair shops will not do it at all, the chances of breaking expensive dash moldings are very high, be careful and methodical, have some super glue and plastic gussit material handy if you crack the moldings of the dashboard .... while in their check operation of the blending doors and look for worn out weather stripping replace it now or cry later....

When I turn the heater on burnt plastic smell from vents


It could be your heater blower motor or the blower speed regulating reisitor.
Try different blower speeds, see if the smell goes away. Also if one or more speed setting don't work, it is more than likely it is the resistor, if no to the tests, it is more likely to be the blower motor.
Also check to see if the blower intake is blocked.

Water leaking in blower motor


pull the plastic grate cover off the cowl at heater AC outside air intake at the base of the windshield and check to see that the cowl drains are not plugged with leafs or other debris, this is the common cause, if the drains are clear seal around the cowl air intake with automotive silicone caulking.

Burt Toast Smell while running heater


This is caused by in most cases dry tree leaf getting particles into the heating duct through the air intake at the base of the windshield, this material contacts the red hot blower motor speed control resistor and burns, and yes it smells like burnt toast, in order to clean this stuff out u need to remove the blower motor, the material will be in the duct near it. I have seen this cause a fire, so get it checked and cleaned ASAP.
