I have a 2000 Grand Prix GT and recently replaced the blower motor resistor. First of all, there is no need to go to the dealer for the part. I purchased it for $24.95 from a local NAPA dealer. The OEM p/n is: 15304891.
To replace the part, here are the steps I went through:
1) Remove the glove box. There are a series of 9/32" hex head fasteners that hold the glove box assembly in place. Some of the fasteners are inside the glove box itself.
2) After removing the glove box, remove the plastic trim piece that is behind the glove box (including the fuse panel cover). There are no fasteners here. The plastic trim piece snaps in and out.
3) Remove the small carpet section that is under the glove box just above the floor (three plastic push-in type plugs hold it in place).
You now have a good size opening to work with. You will see the blower motor assembly directly behind where the glove box was. The resistor is tucked up and behind the blower motor. I had to lay on my back and slide up under the dash to find the part. It is nestled up against the fire wall.
The resistor is an oldly shaped black plastic formed piece with two wire harnesses connected to it. One is a two wire connector (one black, one purple) that plugs directly into the blower motor. The other harness is a seven wire straight plug type connector that was white on my car.
To remove the resistor, there are three 7/32" hex head fasteners. One is fairly easy to remove, the second is difficult, the third isn't even visible. I removed the first two and by wiggling the resistor was able to work it loose from the third fastener.
Be careful when taking out the resistor as there is a printed circuit board attached to it that is up and inside the blower motor housing.
Reinstallation is pretty much the reverse procedure.
Grand Am is different than Grand Prix. No need to remove glove box for GA. Merely remove the plastic covers under the glove box, the connector to the resistor, and the 2 screws mounting the resistor.
This is also the same for the 1998 old's Intrigue. Just take off the sound shield from under the glove box. The resistor is by the firewall behind heater
Take it to a repair shop.
Resistor is located behind the blower motor assembly.
The blower motor speed resistor is burned out. You can replace only the resistor but the resistor probably burned out because the blower motor is going bad. If you want to fix it for good, replace both the blower motor and blower motor speed resistor.
Check to see if you are getting power to blower motor - if so replace blower motor If not check fuse, switch, resistor pack.
Check to see if you have 12 volts at the blower motor. If yes then the blower motor is bad. If no, then the resistor, relay, or fuse is bad.
the resistor is gonna be right off the blower motor attached to the blower motor by a wire harness should be by the heater core
To replace a blower motor on the resistor first you take off the nozzle and then you go into the motor through the nozzle and unlock it then repeat and oil and done.
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.
Replace the blower motor resistor block. It is located under the dash on the passenger side.
# Locate the blower resistor under the right-side of the instrument panel # Disconnect the electrical connector from the blower motor resistor # Remove the blower motor resistor mounting screws and remove the resistor from the housing # Installation is the reverse of removal
Blown fuse, bad blower motor switch, blower motor itself, or a defective blower motor resistor pack.
replace the blower motor switch
To test the blower motor resistor, unplug the resistor connector. Each blower motor switch input terminal on the resistor must have continuity to the resistor output terminal, which is connected to the circuit going to the blower motor. If the blower motor resistor continuity does not check OK, replace the faulty resistor.You need a multimeter to test the resistor block and there should be continuity between all terminals.
the resistor is directly behind the blower motor under the dash
A malfunctioning blower motor resistor will cause the blower motor not to work. When the resistor is bad the blower motors will not turn on.
you need a new blower motor resistor with auto temp control
To change the blower motor resistor in a 2002 Nissan Maxima, locate the blower motor resistor under the glove compartment on the passenger side of the vehicle. There is a clip that is depressed and then the resistor will slide out. Remove both ends of the resistor and then replace with the new resistor.
One can replace blower motor resistor on 2003 Nissan altima by removing the old using spanners and replacing it with a new one.
o4 grand prix gt blower motor were is it located
The blower motor resistor circuit board has gone bad. Replace the blower motor resistor. I did Still dont work Try the fuses...Had the same problem and it was a blown fuse.
where is the location for a blower motor relay on a 2006 ford freestar
it needs a blower motor resistor to make the fan settings work.If you replace the Blower MOTOR Resistor it should resolve the problem.
the blower motor resistor is located behind the blower motor which is located behind the glove box there is clip wires you need to disconnect and then connect the new one.
Well it is apparent that all is not ok. The speed of the blower motor is controlled by the blower motor speed control switch and the blower motor resistor pack. One of those two items is your problem. I would bet the blower motor resistor pack is defective. The only way to know for sure is to replace it.
You must remove the glove compartment door to access the blower motor. On top of the blower motor will be wires connecting to the top. Release the connecter and let it dangle. Then using a screwdriver, remove the blower resistor on top, where the wires connected, and replace with a new resistor.
