Blower motor problem?

12 posts in this topic

03 Buick LeSabre Limited: A couple of weeks ago, the blower motor wouldn't blow heat...the temp gage showed it was warmed up enough (this has the Automatic temp controls, but couldn't even get it to work when trying to do it manually). The next day it worked just fine up until yesterday when the same problem occured.

The fan speed indicator shows that it is trying to go to high speed, but the fan isn't starting. Would a blower motor going out be intermittent like this or should I be looking for something else? Thansk for any help!

Yep, it doesn't work on any speed. The part that is confusing to me is that it quit, day later worked, and now out again.

We have an 02 lesabre limited that did that exact same thing last year I bought a new blower (spendy in that car)and put it in and the problem was solved. Good Luck.

I would at least give the blower a good tap with the key on and the speed setting set to high. If it starts working than it is probably the problem.

Thanks for the help. Do you happen to remember/know where the blower is on this vehicle? How hard of a job is it to do? I'm know enough to be dangerous sometimes.

Should be under the passenger side of the dash. there is usually a plastic panel that needs to be removed on the underside of the dash. Once its out of the way you will see the blower motor. I wouldn't just jump in and replace it without finding out first if it has failed. There are many things that can cause this symptom and none of them are that difficult to figure out.

Just went out and tapped it and it took right off...looks like a trip to the parts store. I've been searching all over the internet at auto repair sites. Should have known to come here right away. Thanks guys.

I had a grand prix in on friday with the same problem. A good wack to confirm and it spins like new. Of coarse the down side is the customers don't come back to have it fixed if we can't do it that night!
