How do you repair or replace the heater blower resistor on a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am?
The resistor assembly will be located in the evaporator's box. But, they rarely go bad. You probably have a switch, or a motor that has gone bad. It could still be under warranty.
Once you remove the glove compartment (remember to unplug light before pulling), you will be able to see the blower motor. I left the blower motor in, and removed the panels underneath to get access. It was a major feat and tested my flexibility. I'm 6ft, I reclined the seat, unrolled the window and stuck one leg out the window, that was the most comfortable position. The back hex screw took about 10 minutes to unscrew with some breaks since my back was begging for mercy. I would recommend unscrewing the back screw first since if you remove it last the resistor board will drop and make visibility difficult if it wasn't nearly impossible already. I had a tough time screwing them back in and ended up leaving out the back screw...figured in 3 years I'll burn this one up anyway. The resistor board is located right where toes would hit if you kept sliding them up the floor toward the engine. Buenos Suerte.
the heater resistor is located under the passenger sides dash (near the passengers feet). there is an access panel that you pull off. some have clips holding it on, some have screws. the blower resistor is located in the blower box. the resistor itself you will not be able to see, only the connector. usually there is about 5 wires on this connector and they are in a row. disconnect the connector, there is usually…
Fig 15 Blower Motor Resistor NOTE: The blower motor resistor is located on the lower right side of the heater housing. REMOVAL # Remove lower right underpanel silencer/duct. # Disconnect wiring connectors on blower motor resistor. # Remove blower motor resistor retaining screws. # Pull blower motor resistor out of heater housing.
Something called a blower control module takes the place and is found in the hole where you would find a blower resistor, so there isn't a blower resistor in that vehicle. As far as the blower control module is concerned, the module is serviced as a unit. No part can be fixed or replaced. This is not to be confused with the control head in the dash. The blower control module is held into the…
If there is no air moving through the vehicle when the heater is engaged could that be the heater blower motor is so where is it located and how difficult is it to change?
the most likely cause is not a fuse but the final stage blower resistor, its very easy to replace, it located near the right side footwell vent duct. remove the trim panel under the glove box, and the resistor is very visabl along with the connector, remove and replace resistor, experienced tech takes about 5mins. to do. good luck.
