You don't say what year the truck is, but generally speaking, the resistor and fan switch handle the ground circuit. If you are getting power on the red white wire it could be a ground problem.

yes the battery is probably five years old and not capable of holding a charge. if you go to a Murray's or autozone they will test the battery for free.

Where is resistor for heater blower motor on infinity g20 2002


The resistor is an in-line resistor. You will have to follow the wire back and find the resistor and replace it.

No Power to Heater


by heater i take it you mean the blower motor.these work on a fuse and or relay and a set of resistors.but start by checking the fuse as you said you have no poower.if the fuse is ok then check for power at the plug on the blower motor, you will have to disconnect the plug at the blower motor and have a tester placed on 12 volts to perform this test.turn ignition to the on position and turn on the heater unit,you should have a reading of some kind .if you have up to 12 volts then the wiring and fuseare ok. the problem then would be the blower motorbut after removal you could always check the motor by hooking it up to a 12 volt power source to see if it turns.

I replaced the heater blower resistor, and the fan is still missing the same speed?


The blower motor is ground side controlled through the switch first and then through the blower resistor. It is entirely possible for the resistor to be fine and the switch is actually your problem.

I need to know what speed is not working and if you have a test light or a volt meter? I will then be able to get you some detailed instructions on what to check to find the true source of you problem.

If you don't have a test light or a voltmeter than you next best possible fix is replacing the fan speed switch.

I have 2002 infinity I35 and the blower motor stop working ,I took out the blower motor to make sure was good. YES the blower motor still working .the only think I really don't know how to check is Blower...


WELL YOU HAVE TO USE A VOLT METER CONNECT ONE VOLT METER WIRES TO GOOD GROUND AND THE OTHER VOLT METER WIRES GOES TO EACH SWITCH SPEED.IF VOLT METER GET VOLTAGE A 1 OR 2 CONTROL SPEED RESISTOR BAD.IF RESISTOR BAD YOU WILL GET 1 OR 2 BLOWER MOTOR SPEEDS.IF BLOWER MOTOR WORKING.CHECK THE AC AND HEATER CONTROL SWITCH FUSE OR CHECK BLOWER MOTOR FUSE AND RELAY.IF ALL GOOD SO FAR CONTROL SWITCH ITSELF COULD BE FAULTY.

96 Chevy blower motor wont work


If you have a test light,check for power at the blower motor,see if it will come on with a wire from battery positive ,to the positive on the blower motor,if it does not,check to see if the motor is grounded,then check to see if the relay has 12 volts to it.The relay should have 12 volts to it,with the switch off.Turn the switch on,and use test light only,touch the probe to all the terminals on the relay,one at a time,with the relay plugged up,when the test light touches the ground,on the relay,it will activate the blower motor,ground the test light of course.Use a test light to chase down the problem,it is the best toll for this,and is not exspensive.

Heater motor has stopped working. checked fuses snd they sre good what needs to be replaced


You need to check the blower motor to see if it has power going to it.Get volt meter hook the red end to the blower plug and put the black to a ground now turn the key and the fan on and see if you have 12 volts or more.If you do it most likly the blower motor

Blower working on top 2 settings but no air comeing from vents


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. The possible causes due to which the blower is not working normally are fuse, blower resistor or a bad blower motor. Test the voltage at the blower with a test light. Please check the motor relay switch fuse under the dashboard. Use a multi meter to measure ohms for continuity. If these are fine, bypass the blower motor relay switch to make sure blower motor is running fine. Motor relay switch is right next to radiator fan relay switch under the hood. Pull out the blower motor relay switch to see 4 female pin holes. Test the relay switch using a 12 volts power source and a multi meter to measure continuity. If fan works after jumping the pin holes, then blower motor is fine but relay switch may be faulty. You may also need to replace the blower motor resistor. If still the problem persists, then you need to replace the blower motor.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

trace the two wires by analyzing which power are you missing...

run a wire from the positive of the battery and put the red wire of the volt meter to it and place the black wire of the meter to the black that goes to the motor.

if there is 12 volts, you have a negative terminal to the motor.

if you dont have, then you dont have the negative terminal to the motor.

next transfer the wire from the positive terminal of the battery to the negative terminal of the battery.

now put the bllack wire of the meter to the wire and test the red /or blue wire that goes to the motor.

it should have a reading of 12 volts.

if there is no reading , then there is no positive 12 volt present on the blue/red wire.

from these test, you can know which wire does not have the power.

that is what you are missing..

tnx 4 using fixya,

cheers,

drcool


p.s.

you could have just missed the black wire to be screwed on the housing of the blower motor.
