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.

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. Answer 2 For pics and a write-up of how to perform this task check out the following website: http://www.oqcgp.com/forum/kb.php?mode=article&k=70 Hope this helps. "G"
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!
The blower motor is a variable speed motor. The higher the voltage applied to the motor, the faster the speed. Depending on the HVAC (Heater Ventilation Air Conditioning…) option installed in the vehicle, blower speed control could be through a set of resistors or through a solid-state blower motor control module. Battery voltage to the blower motor is supplied by the heater & A/C control by way of the blower resistor (or blower motor control module). At low and medium speeds, the voltage is stepped down by the blower motor resistors. At high speed, the blower motor relay is energized, removing the blower motor resistors from the circuit. Battery voltage is then applied directly to the blower motor through the relay. The motor will then run at maximum speed. Several types of HVAC systems were available on these vehicles, from manual to fully automatic electronic control. The blower motor speed can be adjusted manually by pushing the fan switch up or down or automatically by placing the heater & A/C control in the AUTO mode. In general, this system is reliable. Because so many of the control operations are electronic, special diagnostic equipment really should be used for system diagnostics and check-out. An authorized technician using a scan tool can most quickly locate HVAC problems.An inoperative blower motor could be caused by the following: Blown fuse(s). The fuse should be replaced. There may be both a LOW BLOWER and HIGH BLOWER fuse. Some models may also call it the HVAC fuse. Even the RADIO fuse is used in some applications. Check them all. If a fuse is blown there may be a short to ground in one of the power supply circuits. Open Circuit. Check the circuit between the ignition switch and the blower motor, and the blower motor ground circuit. Repair as necessary. Faulty blower switch. A faulty blower switch should be replaced. Most heater blower circuits also include a blower motor relay (look in the underdash convenience center), as well as a blow motor resistor. These items should be checked especially if the blower runs in one or two speeds, but not all speeds selected. REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Disconnect the negative battery cable. The blower motor is located on the passenger side of the vehicle, under the instrument panel. Remove the right side sound insulator (trim panel) by removing the retainers and disconnecting the courtesy lamp. Detach the blower motor electrical connector. Some applications may have cooling hose to the motor which should be disconnected.Unfasten the blower motor mounting screws, then remove the blower motor from the vehicle. If the blower motor fan (also called a 'squirrel cage') must be replaced, use the following procedure: NOTE Do not hammer on the motor to remove or install the fan. Do not apply force to the motor housing to seat the fan on the motor, or motor/shaft bearing damage could result. Do not apply pressure to the fan rim. Be sure the correct replacement part is used. Remove the metal star clip retaining the fan cage to the motor shaft. Remove the fan by pulling straight out. To install: If removed, install the blower motor fan, as follows: Install the replacement fan cage onto the motor shaft. Adjust the fan cage to get a clearance of 0.30 inch (7.5mm) to the motor mount plate. Install the remaining components in the reverse of the removal procedure. Make sure the electrical connection is secure. Tighten the motor screws to 14 ft. lbs. (20 Nm). Connect the negative battery cable, then test the blower motor for proper operations
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
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.
I REPLACED ONE ON A 98 GP AND IT IS UP UNDER THE PASSENGER DASHBOARD. VERY HARD TO GET TO. IT HAS A FEW SCREWS, AND ONE IS RIGHT AGAINST THE WALL. IT IS VERY BENIFICIAL IF YOU… HAVE A SCREWDRIVER/SOCKET SET THAT IN ON A FLEXIBLE ARM TO GET INTO TIGHT SPACES. ALSO, IF IT IS CORRODED BECAUSE OF THE LEGENDARY GP LEAK ON THE PASSENGER SIDE YOU WILL NEED TO ADDRESS THAT TO KEEP IT FROM GOING BAD AGAIN. TO FIX THAT LEAK I EPOXYED THE BLACK PLASTIC COWL JUST UNDER THE WIPERS DOWN SO WATER COULD NOT LEAK INTO THE CAR. http://autorepair.about.com/library/pictures/illustrations/bl098lib.htm.
If it is a V6 the starter is at the bottom front of the engine. The front of the car has to be raised to access it from underneath. This is best done when the engine is cool.…
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
Underneath the blower motor once you remove it it should be atachech with 3 screws near the upper lining
Resistor is located behind the blower motor assembly.

2003 Pontiac Grand Prix - turned on the blower motor and it started clunking really loudly does it sound like a bearing and the motor is kaput?
FYi, I own a 2003 grand am and have the same problem, my blower motor works on all speeds so it is not the overpriced blower relay. Based on past experiences with Pontiacs the… blower motor is going bad. I owned a 1969 Firebird with 100,000 miles and the blower motor had to be replaced at 100,000 miles, this 2003 Grand Am has 70,000 miles and the motor is already going bad. I have already had to replace my rotors as they were bad at 55,000 miles, the head gasket is already leaking, I have already had to replace the ignition switch as it went bad at 50,000 miles. What a overpriced piece of junk, this Pontiac Grand Am will be the last of my "Big 3" American automaker purchases. My best advice is to unload all 2003 Grand Ams you can before they end up costing 3 times the original purchase price in maintenance that is caused by poor workmanship and farming out production from American workers to 3rd world countries.
To fix the gas gauge on the 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix SE, the steps will vary depending on the problem. First, check the fuses for the instrument panel to see if they are al…l working. Next, check the float in the gas tank to see if that is bent or damaged. The fuses and float can be replaced if necessary.
