Question about 2005 Chevrolet Silverado

1 Answer

The blower motor on my 1998 GMC 2500 5.0 L works intermittently. It will come on randomly and work for a while and then cut off. It doesnt seem to be related to where the fan speed selector is set at. Recently it seems it he blower doesn't work far more then it does. I have replaced the resistor with no change noted. What should be my next course of action?

SOURCE: Blower motor or resistor?

If it was the motor that went out then it would not blow at all. The resistor is the culprit that starts killing off speeds. It should be about $25 to $30 at an aftermarket store like autozone or advanced auto parts.

No the motor is not bad or going bad, the heater blower motor resister is bad, thats regulates the blower speeds, its located under dash by heater motor 2 screws hold in heater box with a electrical plug to it.

SOURCE: Blower motor or resistor?

Yes its the blower motor resistor.

More then likley theres some trash or something in it, or possibly the motor itself is on it's way out. There not that bad to pull out of that body car, just pull it out and see what you can see.

The blower motor is under the glove compartment

You can replace the resistor on your own. Please find a detailed diagram which would guide you to do it.

Under the dashboard on the passenger side you will see the blower motor. Near the blower motor inside the air duct is the resistor. It should be held in place by two screws. Hope this helps. Good luck

I own a 1998 GMC 2500 5.0 L pickup and for several months now the blower motor has been working intermittently. It doesn't seem to matter what speed the selector is set on. It will come on and off several...

You say the blower goes on/off at any speed?,you mean if on high it cuts off?,on low it cuts off?sounds the same???. Try putting a continuity lamp at the fuse box and watch(someone watch)to see if light goes on/off;"could" be power is disconnected at blower(if light stays on). This is free of cost(s) and somewhere to start. Hope this helps somewhat. Alberto

There is a good chance that there may be some debris lodged in the fan itself. Or... the wiring is loose.

2003 GMC Yukon XL blower fan intermittently doesnt turn on

Could be the blower motor, the resistor, or the control on the dash.
You'll need to check the circuit for voltage when it fails to work.

1998 gmc 2500 heater swith only work on high

Most likely cause is the blower motor resistor. If you remove the glove box (4 screws, two on each side), the resistor is located behind the 4 relays. Two screws hold it in place. rmeove screws and pull it up and out of the HVAC case.
