In order, the most common cause of failure on the blowers is failure of the brushes on the motor itself. The motor is completely open to the elements as air comes in (ie, no cabin filter) and can get water and rust. Check the fuses. If both have failed simultainiously, odds are that the left side one is dead and is causing the right one to fail as well (the left sends the signal to the right, the incoming air temperature sensor is in the left side one, making it the "primary" box). There are several relays in each blower box that can fail from water damage, and a capacitator in the bottom of the blowers that sometimes fails. The module in the center console rarely fails, but can fail to send signal to the "piano" computer (it looks like a grand piano, its the climate control computer) located on the left side of the box containing the evaporator and heater matrix. The connections on the piano computer can fail, and the computer itself can fail. Rarely as well, the feed wires at the fuse box can short and melt, causing a loss of power in the entire circuit.

Where are heater hoses on a 1989 Chevy Celebrity?

On a 1989 Chevy Celebrity the heater hose leaves the water pump via a hose barb then runs along the top of the passenger side frame rail and then into the heater core. The heater core is in the firewall below the blower fan on the passenger side of the car. The return hose leaves the heater core and runs along the firewall then to the water outlet below the thermostat.

Check for a blown fuse. If the fuse is good then apply 12 volts directly to the blower motor. If it runs then the Blower Motor Resistor Pack is defective. If it does not run the motor itself is defective.

Why would there be no heat in a 1989 Corvette if the blower works and the heater hoses are warm?

Check and make sure your not low on coolant. The last place in your cooling system will be the heater core so if you are low on coolant then you will have no no heat even if your operating temp is normal and everything is operating properly. If you have AC, you will also have a heater control valve that turns off the water flow when the AC is working so it won't have to compete with the heater. These valves use vacuum and if it is corroded inside, it may not open to allow the hot water to enter the heater hence no heat.

The heater in your 1989 corvette wont heat i replaced the heater core and it still wont heat.?

Low coolant level? Cooling system airbound? Bad thermostat? Water pump not circulating coolant? Heater control cable not working?

The thermostat may be stuck open.
