Blower Fan Removal

The blower fan started working intermittantly. I could reach under the dash and hit the fan and it would work...for awhile. Now it has quit. I started removeing the fan but I can't get to the back screw. It is located in a very tight spot. I am using a 8mm socket on a spring extension and a 3" and a 6" solid extension but the screw won't turn. Any suggestions on how to get this screw out?

    I took the resistor out and using my volt meter I found the power leads. I made two cables with paddle ends and connected them between the power lead to the resistor and the power leads going to the motor....nothing. So it is the fan. I was finally able to get that back screw out. The problem was the fiber floor board was too think at the screw and this was preventing the socket from getting on the screw. I took a 12" 3/8 socket extension bar and pushed up into the spot and pushed it back and forth to create a bigger hole. I was able to get the socket in and remove the screw. I have the fan down. Now to go to the junk yard and get another one. More later........

SOURCE: heater blower switch broken

mine was doing the same, then just quit all together. I went and got a resistor and everything is working again. Pretty easy to replace as well.

The wire that connects to the ignition switch that goes to the A/C blower fan is misplace upon connection.And its not grounded to any other lines.

SOURCE: how to replace a blower motor on a 2002

if the fan is working on high speed then you don't need to replace it. You need to replace the resisters that control the fan speed. It's far more cheaper by the way

Problem with 2004 F150 A/C. Intermittantly the fan and A/C will shut off, just completely quit. Then after a few minutes it will come back on


Try the fan blower. It should be inside the cab, on the passenger's side, under the glove compartment. Easiest way to check, when is not working, hit the plastic cover under the glovebox, if it starts, it is the blower. Sometimes you need the hit it several times, until you hit the actual blower.

2003 GMC Yukon XL blower fan intermittently doesnt turn on


Could be the blower motor, the resistor, or the control on the dash.
You'll need to check the circuit for voltage when it fails to work.

Heater fan not operating


Most of the time when a heater blower quits working it is the blower switch that fails rather than the motor. Blower switch can be accessed in the dash panel.

01 grand.prix ac fan switch only works on high. has a duel temp controller when you turn fan off the only way fan comes back on is to move the temp controller levers


Hi!!
When the Blower Motor Resistor (controls blower speeds) goes bad, the blower motor works only on HIGH SPEED. REPLACE IT.
BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR Removal & Installation
  • Disconnect negative battery cable.
  • Remove right lower instrument panel insulator panel.
  • Disconnect blower resistor connector located behind right side of dash.
  • Remove blower resistor screws and blower resistor.
To install, reverse removal procedure
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!

1995 GMC Sonoma - blower motor works intermittently. Switch works fine. When switched to high, it might take a few minutes for blower to actually come on.


There is a relay under the dash on the passenger side that operates the fan. You can bump the dash on the under side passenger side. And the fan should come on. If so the relay needs replaced.

AC fan working intermittently


Check the fan blower resistor mounted in the under dash blower case. Mazda had pretty well designed systems and are user friendly. The resistors are a fairly common issue. Make sure also that the drain on your ac unit is draining out when the ac is on. They can fill up and cause some weird probs. check also that the carpet under the pass side dash is not wet. If so, you have a drain that is clogged or is leaking back int the dash floor. There is a repair for that also.

My heater blower stopped working on my 2002 Malibu. For awhile it worked only on a couple of speeds, then stopped working entirely. I replaced the blower resistor and this fixed the problem for about a...


Hello,

The blower motor, as you have probably seen, is under the dash on the passengers side. While in Park with the parking brake applied:

Turn the Key On with fan blower set to High. Locate the blower motor and wiggle the electrical connector. If this brings the blower motor to life, a new blower motor is needed. This, if applicable, is a common failure that matches your symptoms. The new blower is simple to replace, although it is never fun working under the dash.

If you have a 12 volt test light or DVOM (multimeter) you can check for power at the electrical connector. You should have battery voltage (12+) with the blower set on high. Always use a known good ground when testing for power. If you have power (key on, set to high) and no blower operation the blower motor needs replacing.

The resistor you replaced is a very common failure on these.

Give me an update.
