Blower motor problem?

Recommended Posts

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!

    • Probably something like electric cars that was never going to happen!  Only the future will know.
    • scary interesting...
    • Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck. With big pharma in the game, is there really any doubt it will be on store shelves soon? The cattle and pork industry better come up with a "pink slime" type of name for this, or they can kiss their herds goodbye.

    • sorry, quoted wrong post.   If one quotes a quote, the system messes up the attribution
    • Water that doesn't come out of a plastic bottle.
    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
