One of two things first you may have a motor capacitor going out. This capacitor is what gets the fan up to speed and keeps it there. If this capacitor is out the fan starts slowly and may never reach operating speed. However, you state the motor makes a lot of noise so that leads me to believe that either the strator is going out or the bearings are about to burn out, I would suggest the replacement of the motor and the capacitor due to the symptoms you are describing. Good luck on your repairs Hope this helped some

My fan speed is stuck on hi no matter were I set it. Also it stays on when you turn it off and it stays on for about 10 seconds after the car is shut off.


I would replace that switch first thing since there is nothing that can make it stay "on" other than itself.

I want to know how I can trouble shoot fan blower problem get it behind me?


Your talking about the interior blower? If the first 3 settings don't work, you have to replace the blower resistor. The relay is a different story. Though the relay could be built in the resistor. I'm thinking this is not your case. The resistor controls the speeds of the blower, until it gets to high. Then the relay kicks in to give the blower full power. I would say replace the resistor. I good thing to remember is, If you get any speed from the blower, the resistor is bad. If you get nothing,check the fuse, replace it, if it blows again, replace the blower. If the fuse doesn't blow, then start looking at the controller and wires. This advice goes for all makes and models.

A/c blower stays on while the car is off and is draining the battery.


Seems like you have an important short circuit. Blower is supposed to be cut off when car is shut down. I have seen blower switches melt, from excessive use of high speed blower, shorting the contacts, and staying on permanently.

My coleman 3 ton heat pump blows very little air


Check the blower capacitor and blower speed, you probably have a 3 or 4 speed motor make sure it's on medium high or high speed.
If these are ok then shut the power off to the indoor unit and pull the blower housing out so you can see the blower wheel, make sure it's clean and very carefully spin the wheel to see if it spins freely keep hands away from wheel while it's spinning, if it doesn't then the bearings are bad and you need to replace the motor.

Blower motor or resistor?


Yes its the blower motor resistor.

More then likley theres some trash or something in it, or possibly the motor itself is on it's way out. There not that bad to pull out of that body car, just pull it out and see what you can see.

The blower motor is under the glove compartment

You can replace the resistor on your own. Please find a detailed diagram which would guide you to do it.

Blower won't shut off


You will need a Blower motor resistor and maybe a blower motor resistor connector end. If you look under the dash on the passenger side(may need to remove smooth black cover, vents will be sticking out) you will see a connector going straight up into the blower motor resistor(7 wires/slightly in front of blower motor). Pull out the connector and check for melted terminals/wires. If no melted terminals just replace blower motor resistor with part # 89019088 per GM to revert to part before 04 in order to stop blower motor resistor relay from hanging. Let me know if i can help more.

BLOWER NOT WORKING PROPERLY, STRUGGLES TO COME ON.


I would bet the cabin/pollen filter has not been changed for a long time. This can cause lots of issues including incipient blower motor failure. For illustrated tutorials on all things ACC related for Saab 9-5, including step by step replacement and repair procedures, see this site under A/C and climate control.
