My blower motor won't run at all when the truck is first started and won't start running till you hit a bump

Then when it cools down after shutting the truck off it all happens again
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi:
If it doesn't start intil you hit a bump, you have a loose connection or a broken wire. The first thing I would look at is the blower motor resistor. I believe it's located on the passanger side firewall of the engine compartment. Several wires in a plug will be connected to ther resister. Often times, from heat the plug gets so hot it starts to melt causing a poor connection.

Let me know if this helps.

Joe
