Question about 2005 GMC Sierra Denali

1 Answer

I have a 2005 gmc Denali and my blower resistor burned up. I went and bought a brand new one and a brand new pig tail because apparently the aftermarket one is diff. Any ways I pit it back I'n and it immediately started to burn up! My blower motor is good because I tested it. What would cause my new resistor to burn up like that?

Hi, often the switch will fail first and then cause the resistor to fail. The way this happens is the switch may engage multiple speeds and thus cause excessive current through the resistors. You can check the switch at the resistor pigtail using an voltmeter or 12 volt test light. Each terminal in the connector should have power with one and only one setting of the switch. If more than one terminal has power for any switch setting, replace the switch. Please let me know if you need instructions or have any more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Do not need the amp need the # that goes to fan blower inside car for heat and air


There is a good chance that your issue is with the blower motor resistor and not the fuse. This seems to be a common problem with the 2005 especially. Make sure that the connector to the resistor has not over heated and melted, if it is you will need to have the pig tail connector replaced along with the resistor. The two fuses for the blower motor are number 34 and 36 in the under hood distribution center and are both 30amp.

My blower motor resistor burned up I'n my 05


Are you putting the right amp fuse in place of that fuse was at ? If you have a fuse that is 5 amps smaller could produce this same problem so go make sure your manual says what amp fuse goes there first. This might solve the issue. Usually if the fuse keeps breaking inside of it means that there might be a short some where else.

check the wires with a multimeter to see if there might be a short. put the multimeter where the fuse is at to see why the fuse is being dead. but make sure you know what you are doing first with multimeter or have someone else that knows how to use the multimeter.

There is a short to power well you found one of the problems and that was the area that is wet, so let that dry, and if you have electrical cleaner (spay can type) just follw the direction on the container, and yes you will need to have the switch replaced those 2 component you found is the source of the problem

My fan for the heater and air conditioner has 5 speed settings. the first 2 do not work at all the other three work fine is this a fuse problem


No the fuse is good or it would not run at all. You have a defective Blower Motor Resistor Pack. It will be located behind the glove box, behind the passenger kick panel, or somewhere near the blower motor. Purchase the part so you will know what to look for.
