Blower fan operation

When I push the button the fan raises but the blower does not activate. This problem happened all of a sudden since it worked Christmas. Where do I start to look?

Thanks, Gary

I would order a new Controller Board. Depending on the exact version, it could be a problem with a relay, or a triac on the board, that are meant to power up the motor.

Cabin air on 2005 Dodge Dakota stop working

If the blower fan is not operational,check fuses. If the blower fan was working but all fan speeds were not working, possible fan motor resistor. You can try slapping on the botttom of the passenger dash area with the fan motor in the on position with the palm of your hand to see if that will activate the motor. If it does, the motor will need replacement.

Kia amanti air condition

It could be your blower motor. It is located on the bottom passenger side of the dash board under/behind the glove box. There is a cover you can remove and you can touch the blower motor. once you have the cover off start the car and turn the fan speed to high then try hitting the blower motor and see if you get air flow. if this works you need to replace the blower motor. If not you need a test light and start checking fuses and see if you have power to the motor.

After talking to a local mechanic, he suggested tapping on the blower motor. I tried that, and the blower motor did work. At first he thought it was the blower control module. I had the blower motor replaced, and all is fine now.

First, check the fuse. If that is good, chances are the blower motor is in need of replacement.

95 Park Ave blower fan ran with ign off then stopped working

Sounds like a bad blower motor resistor, or if you have electronic temp control, a bad control unit.

Ac/heating problem

Same problem for me. Local garage seems to think replacing the control module in the dash will solve the problem. I also have clicking sounds behind where the relay junction box is (under dash). My problem is intermitant so I'm also thinking that replacing a relay or two might also help.

Microwave seems to turn on when door latch is opened

What's happening is you are activating one door switch a little before the other, and that is causing your light, fan, and turntable to come on. The plastic parts are not perfectly rigid, so they flex a little when you press the button, and that causes the lag to be more apparent. Even if you press the door open faster and look really close, you may notice the light, fan, and turntable coming on for a split second. That's perfectly normal. The relay on the control board must also be turned on before it will actually be cooking.
