Time to get the blower resistor replaced. Simply carry out the following steps. Open the Glove box. Remove the three phillips screws across the top of the open box. Remove the two phillip screws that are deeper in on the sides of the open box(nine and three o'clock). Hard to see, use your flashlight. With these five screw removed remove the glove box. Disconnect the flashlight charger plug, and the glove box light connector. Pay attention to the wire routing. Remove plastic cover behind glove box. Locate motor and metal link to one of the a/c doors. Remove the metal arm from the plastic clip. Slide motor out and disconnect. There is an odd shaped black plastic piece with two T-20 or 25 Torx screws that need to be removed. Remove plastic piece. The Final stage is located behind the metal arm for the a/c door. I remove the floor heater duct for more room. You may or may not feel the need. If you wish pull on the leather extension to the center console outward until you hear a loud plastic cracking. Stop. Take a deep breath and know that you have broken nothing important Remove heater duct careful not to break the blend air door cam (white) and the lever connected to it (black). You can pull that black lever out if you are patient. Back to the final stage now that you have more room. It is the component with the 5 0r 6 large gauge wires on the connector. Push back the black plastic clamp while pulling/wiggling on the connector. The final stage should come out, then disconnect the connector. Reinstall all. Make sure the heater duct is installed properly if you removed it.

Ac/heater works but doesn't blow air at any speed


Yes. It could be your motor. If there is voltage or your hear the motor running then it could be a vent door not working. There is also the switch and a blower motor resistor that you can check. Hope this helps.

Hi My heater and air con has stopped blowing


Hi!!

Let's start with the basics, check blower motor and AC fuses and relays, also take a visual check to the wiring going to the Blower Motor (Firewall, passenger side). Look for broken wires and loose electrical terminals.

Let me know how it went.

Good Luck!!!

Heater blower not working


It sounds like your cabin air filter has stopped up common problem on these cars. You have to remove the glovebox to get to it. If this filter stops up, your fan will be running on high but hardly anything will come out of the vents.

Heater blower not working


The blower is not the problem
The problem is a faulty final stage resitor located
on the passenger side under the dash.
Very common - easy to replace.

Heater blower not working


Hello picotto2006....Your beemer blower motor has a resistor that controls and regulates the voltage and speed. This has been known to to fail due to intensive heat. A lot of beemer owners have replaced the orginal factory resistor with an aftermarket upgrade.
It is a rectangular plastic or fiberboard unit and should be bolted to the base of the heater box. This resistor has most likely failed.
Replacement cost is about 75 dollars for the E46. Attached is a picture of the resistor.
Good luck and i hope this will fixya up and get the beemer heater back in operating condition.df23cb9.jpg

89 Honda Accord Heater doesn't blow air at all


sounds like the blower motor, Get a test light and hook it up to the wires going to the motor this will tell you if power is getting to the motor . Hopfully it is , Just pull the panel off on the pasangers side under the dash and you can see the motor . It's easy to change and should fix the problem. If you get no power it check for power at the switch on the dash . It could have gone bad !!
