How do you fix the motor blower on a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix?
If your fan control speed #1 stops working and then #2 stops working I believe it is the blower motor modual it is sometimes called blower motor resistor block.It is behind the fan motor , up under the passenger side of the dash and against the firewall. If you are looking underneath the dash, you will see a little black box in the position I described. It is being held in by 3 or 4 gold hex screws that are (I believe) .25'. Its not the fan motor control switch ....return that $165.00 part .....the blower motor modual is about $25 if you get it wholesale. These parts are usually not in stock and have to be imported from the Czech Republic, so order early.

Thanks for the feedback!
i broke down and paid to have this fixed. My mechanic said this is a fairly common problem on the older grand prixs. He had to replace the relay as well as the blower motor, …total cost was $400.
Blower resistor replaced on 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix. It fixed your problem. Now two months later the fan doesn't work on any of the settings. Is it the blower motor?
Anwer The Blower motor resistor could be one of the problems if the blower only works on hi or none of the settings. Another solution could be a bad ignition switch too, since… some of the wires controlling this mechanism are ran thru the ignition switch. My friend had that happen to his and mine was just the resistor pack fortunetly. So, I would check the blower motor, the resistor pack and the ignition switch. Those are the three main problems that cause this. Blown fuse, bad blower mortor, or the resistor pack is bad again. I just replaced one this week end. Fist check your fuses. If not when you disconect the fan try a new one. I believe the fan moter went out. If that doesn't fix your problemn the resister pack is right behind the fan moter. You probaly have to remove the fan to get to the resister pack anyway. Dan 913-558-7613
the blower moter resistor is located on the passenger side. remove kick panel under dash and it is staight up against the firewall. three 5.5mm bolts hold it in,it is very tig…ht in there.gm Jim
Answer Its located under your glove compartment on the passangers side of the car. You will have to remove the grey piece being held in by 3 plastic fasteners. Its the …piece with the light for the passanger flour board in it. after you get that out you will see the bottom of the blower motor. You will have to remove 3 screws, a wire plug and a rubber hose that just pulls off to get it out. Hope this helps. This is not an easy job at all, especially if you are a tall person. It requires you to be pretty contorted to get the old blower out. You should proabably go ahead and replace the resistor pack that is mounted in the bottom of the ductwork directly behind the blower. I recently did that and found that not only was the blower bad, but the resistor pack was fried. If you have to go buy both, go to a place like Advanced Auto or Auto Zone. Stay away from the dealers for these parts. I paid $130 total for the blower and the resistor pack. My local GM dealer quoted me $280 just for the blower motor!
Please email me a photo of where the blower motor resistor is and how to change it. Thanks, Michael. By the way I want it for a 2000 Sunfire not a Grand Am.
Answer The blower motor is located right behind the glove box, it's a littly tricky to get to, but fairly east to spot. I wish I could help more, but… I'm also trying to figure out how to change mine.

Do you have to take the blower motor off first before you can get to the blower motor resistor on a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix?
No you dont but is a tight fit. The resistor is way back against the fire wall. It is sloted so i believe you do not have to remove the bolts completely because one is r…eally hard to get.

Answer Usually against the passenger firewall
under the hood with the other fuses like your primary and secondary cooling fans under the hood with the other fuses like your primary and secondary cooling fans
Underneath the blower motor once you remove it it should be atachech with 3 screws near the upper lining
To acssess blower mortor take of carpeted panel under passenger side glove box. When it's off, loosen 3 screws holding motor unplug the ruber hose attached to mortor and… disconect wire harness. It's best to go to dealer first after writing down part number of mortor since some after market mortors can't plug directly into factory harness and need some plicing to make work. Install is the exact reverse of take out.
The heat and air in my 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix gtp does not blow is it the blower motor and what kind does it take?
Answer If you have a Carquest auto supplier nearby, part #209283 (Blower motor w/wheel) and check the resister (if you only have high speed) also. Approx $200.00
take out carpet under glove box. look under glove box. there should be three screws to take out and then just pull out the old blower motor.
On the bottom of the dash on the passenger side remove the black cover then remove the bolts on the blower and disconnect the wire. Reverse above to install.
in side under the dash on the passener side of the car
