The blower motor itself is the most likely cause. It is located under the dash on the passenger side. The plug is usually white with a black and a blue wire. Remove the plug and run a test light between the 2 terminals, turn the key to "on"(engine not running) with the blower switch on in any position the light should turn on. If it does the blower is bad and can be replaced by taking out the 3 screws that hold it in. if the light does not light, the wires and fuse need to be checked. The fuse is labeled "heater" and is under the dash on the drivers side. If the blower works on high speed but does not work on one or more of the lower speeds-- the blower motor is OK. The problem lies in the resistor block, usually found attached to the air duct slightly downstream from the blower motor. Look for a 3 to 5 wire plug-in attached to the air duct. Remove the electrical plug carefully, then remove the 1 or 2 screws attaching the small flat plastic to the air duct. Gently remove the part-- if it has little coils of wire on it, you found the resistor. Treat it very carefully as the wires are brittle. Presuming you look at the coils (and see 1 or 2 with breaks in them) go get a replacement from a junkyard (cheap but used parts), auto parts store, or Toyota dealer. The Toyota dealer part will fit like a glove-- but take your heart medication before they tell you the price.

Does a 1999 Chevy silverado pickup have reistors for the heater speeds control?

Yes, located in the blower motor resistor pack. Follow the wires backward from the blower motor to find it.

Why would the heater blower on a 1991 Toyota pickup not work on all speeds?

toyotas have a resistor bank in line with heater motor each speed has a different value resistor. there is no resistor on high speed. it is located on passenger side in heater duct I thank it has two screws holding it on when you get it out you will see the resistors burned

Blower wont work on all 5 speeds, usually the lower speeds tend to go first.

Why does the lower three heater speeds on a 1999 Malibu not work?

The blower motor resistor is defective. They go bad when the blower motor pulls to much amperage.

Is there a relay switch for the heater on a 1994 Chevy truck?

Only for the high speed blower function. The lower speeds go thru the blower motor speed resister.

Why will the heater blower work on the 2 high speeds and not the 2 low speeds on a 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier and what part needs replaced and where is it located?

The blower motor resistor is bad.

If 2000 dodge ram heater blower motor has high speed only what is the issue?

If it has only high speed, the blower motor resistor has to be replaced to get all speeds back.

How do you find fault on heater fan not workin mk3 mondeo?

If all speeds do not work, suspect the fuse, the switch, the switch connector or the blower motor. If only high speed works, suspect the blower motor speed resistor. If low speeds work and not high, suspect the blower motor relay.

If heater fan is working but nothing coming out would the problem be blower resistor or switch for 1999 Oldsmobile intrigue?

If the heater fan works on all speeds, then the blower motor, blower fuse, blower relay, and blower motor resistor pack are all good. If the fan runs but nothing comes out of the vents, you have a 'mode door' issue (which might include a bad control head).

Sounds like you need to replace your blower motor resistor.

Can a 1994 Chevrolet Caprice Classic heater blower motor resistor be tested to see if it needs replacing?

If you have only high speed on the blower motor or you are missing one or more low speeds, chances are the blower motor speed resistor is burned out.

What is a resistor block for on a Dodge Caravan?

The resistor block or blower motor resistor is used to control the speed of the blower motor. That is how you get the lower speeds on your air conditioning or heater. The higher the resistance the lower the speed of the motor.

What does the blower resistor do?

It gives you all the blower speeds except high.

What is wrong if the heater in a 1999 Honda Civic doesn't get warm?

could be thermostat or heater fan if you can hear all the speeds on the blower motor working then it could be your thermostat but your heater core might be plugged as well

How do you fix heater fan when it stops working on a 1994 Chevy s10?

If you have no blower speeds at all, first check the fuse. If the fuse is okay I would suspect the blower speed switch and its electrical plug has melted. If the switch checks okay I would suspect the blower motor is bad. If you have high speed only, I would replace the blower motor speed resistor. If you have all lower blower speeds but no high speed, replace the high speed relay.
