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!

So the blower doesn't work on any speed?

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!

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
