Hi, I have a 2006 Passat and the blower motor is not working on any position. If I turn the knob to 1 - 4 and switch the AC button on it lights up and as soon as i turn the know to position 0, the AC light goes off, meaning that the knob is somewhat working. Any idea what I can check and where the blower motor is please? Thanks Dan

1998 GMC Sierra. Blower motor works sometimes. No particular circumstances, just when it wants to. Checked all fuses, relays, even replaced the resistor, nothing. Followed the wire harness and found the two pigtails that others have mentioned. Took the wires off, black and purple, and turned ignition on. Getting around 11 volts on all sittings except for the highest setting, it reads 0 volts. The compressor turns on at the console, all the switches on the console work, just not the fan.


Could it be the blower motor it self? sometimes they have a "bad spot" when it is not working, can you hit it and make it run? pretty common on these trucks. the switch is also common. they often melt at the connector on the back making a bad connect ... 1998 GMC Sierra

I have a 97 Pontiac Grand Prix, The blower motor only work on high. I have replaced the switch, the resister, and the blower motor.

Wires need to be tested at certain points to find out whats going on. It could be as simple as a bad ground somewhere. This needs to be looked at by someone with experience so that more damage is not done. Hope this helps. ... 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix
