A/C -Heater Blower switch won't work even with switch ON? Our 2000 Grand Vitara's A/C - Heater Blower speed switch recently stopped working.

I have a 2003 Hyundai Accent. My air conditioning is not working. The heater, fan, blowers and everything else are working fine. I was told that is was the a/c switch, so I had it replaced and it did not fix the problem. We also checked the electrical and wires from switch to a/c compressor and all seem to be in working order.

When we turn on the air conditioning we get no blower but the compressor is working alright, I think it might be in a vacuum switching device but dont know where it is located so that I can check the hoses? I have also noticed that the vacuum break booster is weak so that tells me that there must be a leak all I need is to have a diagram as to where the vacuum switch is located or an explanation to how to go about getting to it. Thanks.

I have a 1999 Chevy Suburban. It has a dual air conditioning system. Everything works fine,except the front high switch, making it a slow cooling process in 90 degree,bumper to bumper, weather. Does just the blower switch need replacing! The mechanics I ask don't seem to know for sure,telling me all they can do is start replacing parts to the tune of $300 to $1000. Seems kind of steep to me. Thank you for your help!


Sounds like the blower motor resistor. It should be mounted close to the blower motor. The blower motor resistor may run around $50.00, you may need to replace the plug, dealer item, around $60-70. Shouldn't be $1000. ... Chevrolet Suburban 1500

I have a dail blower switch on my 1998 Mark VIII. I does not cut on the blower for my heat and air condition


In that case either the switch or the relay are faulty. To test it is easy: just take it out of the dash and disconnect it: if the fan stops it's the switch, if not it's the relay. Replace the broken part. ... 1998 Lincoln Mark VIII
