Electrical problem 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

this vehicles climate control will not come on, the blower motor is not working, the a/c button doesn't light up when pressed.I found that in the fuse block on the drivers side of the dash that the blower motor fuse has no power. If I supply that fuse with power then everything works normally. All other fuses are good. My main question is, where does this fuse receive power from. Thank you for your help in advance.

Do you
have the same problem?

Hello and thanks for donating

According to the schematics, the A/C Blower Fuse (25 amp) will have an orange wire going to the blower motor relay. Have you tested the relay out? From the relay it will go to multiple places, including the blower motor itself and the HVAC Control Module.

The fuse I have no power at is in the drivers side fuse block (20 amp). Where is the blower motor relay? Im going by the fuse panel covers and none of them say blower motor relay. Thanks.

The blower motor relay is integral with the blower motor resistor, sorry I just noticed that. I see the other A/C fuse you speak of, has a brown wire going to it. It goes to the same places as the other I listed, but if the fuse itself doesn't have power then it must be the wiring going to it at fault because it gets power from the battery to the fuse, then from fuse to the other components.

Sure it's rather large though and probably not readable on this forum, so I have sent it to your email on file as well. (UPDATED WIRING DIAGRAMS LOCATED AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST)

Awesome thanks! Also have you heard of any of these concerns caused by the BCM? This same car has the security light, the trunk ajar light, the airbag light, and the low tire light on also.I know. WOW.

Yep that's usually a sign of a crazy computer (aka BCM, PCM etc.). None of those things are related at all other than that the computer has last say in all of their functions.

Could the bad bcm be the cause of my a/c problem?

Don't think it could cause the fuse not to have power because again the power comes straight from battery to the fuse box.

Just wanted to give you an update. The reason the fuse for the a/c control head wasnt getting power was the ignition switch. The orange wire coming from the ignition should have power with the key in the on position, mine didnt. I replaced the ignition switch and problem solved. Also as far as the car dying and the multiple insturment cluster warning lights, the battery was shot tested it three times and it failed every time. Replaced the battery and havent had a problem since. Yay

Heater problem
2003 Chevy Impala 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 168000 miles

Hi,

The heat/AC blower on my 2003 Impala has only worked on the highest setting (5) for over a year now. Just last week, it stopped working completely. I can hear a clicking noise when I switch back and forth from 4 to 5. Winter is getting closer and I really will need as much heat blowing out as possible! Thanks for any insight you can provide.

Air Conditioning problem
2003 Chevy Impala 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

I was driving in to work and had the A/C on. The blower was running fine and just stopped completely. It doesn't work on any setting from 1-5. I swapped the fuses on either side of the car and that didn't seem to do anything. Changing to defrost or heat doesn't seem to make a difference. I can hear the A/C kick on when pressing the button, but no blow.

Thanks for your help

3.8 V6 and I guess manual climate control. I have to press a button to turn it on or off. There's no letters after my Impala name. It's not a LS or anything.
