the blower stopped...help!

So I told her...


Ok so thats not it lol. The blower quit working on my POS isuzu. First it went out on setting 1-3 and would only work on the highest setting, and now thats out too. Whats the most likely culprit, the blower itself or a relay or some other gizmo I know nothing about? I can work on bikes but cars aren't my strong suit, particularly electrical boolshit.

Usually a (thermostst resistor), forgot the name of it. Went thru a few of them in the mustangs. Would only work on high. Mine were located beging the temp controls in the dash, a 5 min fix.

Well for the working on only high and not 1-3, that's the blower resistor. This is because only the first 3 settings actually drop the voltage to the motor, by using 3 resistors inline with each other. The switch position determines if 1, 2, or 3 resistors will be used to drop voltage, which controls the blower speed. An open in any of the 3 resistors kills everythign 1-3. HI works because it's direct current with no resistors, just straight from the switch to the motor. But if it's not working at all now, well it could still be the resistor (possibly), or the blower motor itself. Take a hammer or mallet or whatever you can find that's hard, and with it set on HI give the blower motor a good whack or two. If it comes on, you need a blower motor, and resistor too since you already know that's bad. If it doesn't come on still, just gotta check voltage at the motor and see if it's getting any juice at all

great, thanks guys. Getting this far probably would've taken me hours of scratching my head and flipping through a service manual.

I remembered what that thingy (blower motor resistor) was called on the way to work. A lot of good I am
