2001 nissan maxima heater blower isnt blowing

Check the fuse for the blower motor. If its okay, check for power at the heater motor. If you have power, and no blow, the blower motor will need to be replaced.

2002 Nissan Altima - the heater only works if I go over 35mph. It blows very cold air if I'm stopped at a stop sign or a light.

You could have a head gasket problem that will destroy your cat and 02 sensors. BUT without spending much cash reverse flush your heater core internally first. If this doesn't work I've seen little friends make nests inside the blower motor housing. Take out glove box then drop down blower housing. Vacuum and blow out housing and reach in and clean externally the heater core. Both jobs will take inexperienced folk 4 hours.If this doesn't fix the be prepared to open up your wallet.

Blower does not turn on when put on settings 1-3, but will on setting 4. Also, a/c compressor turns on with settings 1-3 but off on setting 4 which is the only one that blows air. What could this be?

it sounds like your resister pack is bad its a small module usually located by the blower moter replace that and it should work just fine

i hope this helps

The heater and air conditioner will not blow out any air

if the air started to work only on a few settings then the problem is your blower motor resistor if it just stopped all of a sudden then the blower motor is bad but the first thing i would check is the fuse. always check fuses first if you find a bad fuse for it and it pops rite after you put it in and turn the heater on then replace the blower motor

The problem is the blower motor speed control resistor, it is located near the blower motor in the housing.
