Could be that when it rains or is wet out that water is leaking into your car under the hood under the vent by the windshield wipers on the passenger side and instead of being filtered out its going into the car on the passenger side floor. (check to see if this is wet after a heavy rainfall) and causing a short and rusting it out. this happened with my 2002 grand prix just this year. I got a water resistor for like $3.50 from a local pontiac dealership/parts store and put it in. Its easy to install and it poured out today and my car didnt leak at all.

What is a fan switch


It either turns the fan ON or OFF. It may also allow the fan blade shaft to rotate at 1, 2, or 3 speeds depending on design.

Blower motor operates intermittantly and now when it works each level blows with a less volume


The motor goes bad because leaves and such make their way down and clog it's air intake. Pick up a new one at your local auto parts store.

It's four screws on the motor housing, located under the glove box (2 screws) and the wiring is harnessed, so no sweat there.

While it's off, reach up into the cavity that feeds it air on the upper left.

You may want to wear a glove. The design on this generation Rodeo is horribly flawed. I pulled a squirrel-sized wad of rotten leaves and pine needles from mine after replacing the motor and resistor twice.

Like drinking a milkshake through a coffee stirrer, you know that's bad for a motor. I clean mine out every fall, before running the heat non-stop all winter.

BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR


Local salvage yard would be an ideal place to get another one. After you change it, remove the blower motor and reach up into the cavity that feeds it air on the upper left.

Heater quit


First of all check your fuses, more than likely just a fan blower fuse has gone bad.

The heater fan in my 2003 rodeo isn't blowing. I checked the two fuses 15A fuses under the hood and they look good. What else could it be? BTW this blower was replaced under warranty a few years ago.

Rear windshield wiper does not go back into the stored position. Motor seems to work ok.


I have same problem with a 2004 Tahoe. The wiper hangs up on plastic bracket and won't go back down into off position. Design flaw?

Change out the ac blower


unhook the battery find the blower motor unhook the power connection wire it will be a male female type connector most likely unhook it and remove the bolts securing the blower motor to the housing it should pull out with minor effort it will probably seem to have glue but it will be a gasket usually made of foam that sticks to it. If the foam is badly damaged find some simular foam at the hardware store reinstall reverse of removal.
