The transistor that drives the various levels of the blower motor is shot. It is shorted internally. This part is around $100 at your dealer. unless you had a bad relay and some used car dealer just jumped the relay with a wire. not saying this ever happened to me though...

Where is the blower motor resistor on a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

The blower motor resistor block is located on the underside of the HVAC housing (Heater Box) next to the blower motor. The blower motor is located at the right side of the dashboard. You can access the blower motor resistor block from under the dashboard. A Word of Caution! Stay clear of the blower motor resistor block heat sink - It could be Hot. Incidentally, I have read about people working on their dashboards and setting off the airbag. It is a good thing to disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery and make sure that it can not touch the battery post. Wait at least a couple of minutes for the airbag system to discharge.

Why my 2002 town and country acheat blower stay on all the time even if acheat is off stay on as soon as i turn the engin on .Goes off if turn the engin off..?

THE BLOWER MOTOR RESISTIOR IS FRIED. CHEAP CHINESE PART. WHEN IT BLOWS THE DEFAULTS IS FOR THE BLOWER MOTOR TO BE STOCK ON FULL-BETTER THAN NOT WORKING AT ALL. THE PART IS CHEAP$20-$25.00. THE INSTALL IS VERY HARD. LET THE DEALER DO IT.

Why does the blower 98 Intrepid only blow on high not low or intermediate?

Defective blower motor resistor module. this is true except if the control module is malfunctioning at which point the defrost goes to emergency mode in which the defrost will stay on permanently. My module will not power up and I need help with wiring schematics to find a bad ground or power wire

Is blower resistor same as blower motor?

No. The blower motor is the motor that turns the fan that blows the air through the vents inside your vehicle whether its blowing for the ac or the heater. The blower motor RESISTOR controls the speed in which your blower motor turns. The resistor will be located either in the engine compartment, usually in the firewall ( the metal wall separating your engine from your cab). In newer vehicles the resistor is located behind the glove box inside your cab. The resistor is mounted with two bolts/screws and has a wire connecting box plug with 5 connectors. The connectors on the resistor are male and the connecting plug has female plugs. The resistor is VERY easy to replace even for beginners and is very affordable. The one I just changed was $17.00. It was located in the firewall and took me less than 5 minutes to replace. Hope this helps! Stay cool!

Why would blower motor stay on when yousut off ac or heat on a 1997 intrepid es also has only high speed when ac heat is on?

Having only high fan speed is due to your resistor block being blown. It is located behind the floor duct at the passengers feet. It costs about $30 and has only 2 screws holding it in.


Why does blower motor stay on when the engine is off and the key is removed on a 1991 cadillac deville?

follow the plug from the blower motor. It should lead to another plug on top of your heater core housing.There should be three bolts securing the plug. Remove them and replace the part. I don't know what it is called.My 1988 eldorado did the same thing. Works fine now though.


Where is the fuse link to the blower motor?

The blower motor has two fuses. One is located in the fuse panel under or to the left of your dash. The other is located in the fuse box in the engine compartment. Usually , unless it has pealed off, you will find the diagram on the inside of the fuse panel cover which tells you what each fuse is for and what amperage fuse it should be replaced with. Hope this helps! Stay Cool!


How do you replace a blower motor resistor in a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

Blower Motor Resistor: Testing and Inspection Warning: On vehicles equipped with air bags, disable the airbag system before attempting any steering wheel, steering column, or instrument panel component diagnosis or service. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative (Ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the airbag system capacitor to discharge before performing further diagnosis or service. This is the only way to disable the air bag system. Failure to take the proper pre-cautions could result in accidental air bag deployment and possible personal injury. For circuit descriptions and diagrams, refer to the appropriate wiring information. The wiring information includes wiring diagrams, proper wire and connector repair procedures, further details on wire harness routing and retention, as well as pin-out and location views for the various wire harness connectors, splices and grounds. 1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. 2. Remove the glove box from the instrument panel. 3. Disconnect the wire harness connector from the blower motor resistor block. 4. Check for continuity between each of the blower motor switch input terminals of the resistor and the resistor output terminal. In each case there should be continuity. If OK, repair the wire harness circuits between the blower motor switch and the blower motor resistor, blower motor or blower motor relay as required. If not OK, replace the faulty blower motor resitor block. How to replace the blower motor resistor block: Caution: Stay clear of the blower motor and resistor block (Hot). Do not operate the blower motor with the resistor block removed. 1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. 2. Remove the glove box from the instrument panel. 3. Pull out the lock on the blower motor resistor wire harness connector to unlock the connector latch. 4. Depress the latch on the blower motor resistor wire harness connector and disconnect the connector from the resistor. 5. Remove the two screws that secure the blower motor resistor block to the HVAC housing. 6. Remove the resistor block from the HVAC housing. Installation: 1. Position the blower motor resistor block into the HVAC housing. 2. Install the two screws that secure the resistor block to the HVAC housing. Tighten the screws to 2.2 Nm (20 in. lbs.) 3. Connect the wire harness connector to the resistor block. 4. Push in the lock on the blower motor resistor wire harness connecgtor to lock the connector latch. 5. Install the glove box. 6. Reconnect the battery negative cable. 7. Have a nice day!
