Where is heater blower motor on 2000 Rodeo?
Under glove box, facing up. 4 brass screws hold it in and has a wire connector plugged in the side.
* Disconnect the negative battery cable * Remove the glove compartment and lower dash trim to gain access to the heater case and blower motor * Detach the blower motor cover and disconnect the electrical connector from the blower motor * Remove the blower motor mounting screws and pull the blower motor carefully out of the housing * If you are replacing the motor detach the fan and transfer it to the new motor
What can you do about your 2000 Ford Explorer heater blower motor you have to tap it to get it to work?
Disconnect the battery and let the vehicle sit for 20 minutes... Remove the right side panel insulator (passengers side)... Remove the (BCM) body control module and set aside carefully.. Disconnect the power plug to the blower motor.. Remove the screws holding the blower motor.. Remove the blower motor......
What has happened is your blower motor resisor has failed. When you turn the fan speed switch those settings are resistances that "damp" the blower motor and it runs slower. When this fails, it just has full current to the blower motor. Sometimes these are called block resistors. That likely is the problem.
First check fuse, if it is good, check for voltage at the motor itself. if it is not present, check the relay in the negative power line located behind the golve box. This relay is activated by the ignition switch and completes the ground path to the blower.(this blower motor has 2 wires on it because the case does not complete the path to ground for the motor) If you turn on the ignition switch…
If a 2000 Grand Am sometimes has the heater blower working and sometimes it won't, the problem could be with the heater relay switch. The heater relay switch lets the heater blower know when to come on and when to go off. In most vehicles this switch is behind the glove compartment. This part sometimes gets corroded from condensation in this area.
