About 4 years later, with 6,000 mi/year, there was a slight odor coming from vents with only unchanged air - no heat or A/C setting. Vaguely like hot plastic. My solution: turn it off.
6 months later, unpredictably, fan would come on. I'd turn it off using the off button. A few months later the fan would come on more often. The odor would return after some minutes. This happened in fall. And the fan stopped coming on when it got cold outside (below 32).
I had a new blower motor resistor installed by a local competent mechanic. Things shifted. 1) Heat comes on now without waiting 15 minutes (roughly 15 miles). 2) EATC does not shut off when you dial in heat when vehicle is cold. 3) But you can't turn the fan off without turning off engine completely and 4) if you press EATC off, the fan sends all air to floor and seemingly at a higher rate
Mechanic thinks part Made in China is defective.
have the same problem?
