Hello

The hvac blowers will not run from the control on the dash. The dash control has power and all functions indicate they are functioning properly. I have checked the fuses for both fans and they are both fine. I have powered the fans with a 12 volt source and they both run fine. Could this be a relay that is causing the problem? If so, where would it be located and how do you identify it?

Thanks

On all blower speeds except high, the ground circuit for each blower motor is via power transistor and A/CCM, allowing an infinite number of blower speeds. The A/CCM increases or reduces blower speed in correlation to vehicle speed, minimizing ram air effect. The A/CCM cuts off blower voltage if heating is selected when coolant temperature is below 86 F (30 C).

RETRIEVING TROUBLE CODES
System Self-Test
Ensure ignition is in OFF position. Press and hold AUTO and fresh/recirculated air buttons. See Fig. 1. Turn ignition to ON position while holding buttons.
All A/C-heater control panel lights and segments will flash on and off. If any lights or segments do not light, an A/C-heater control panel or light fault is indicated. Press AUTO.
NOTE:If "0" is displayed, there are no stored fault codes, wait 30 seconds for system self-test to finish.

Press face vent mode button. This button will allow scrolling through stored fault codes. The A/C-heater control panel will flash 2 digit fault codes. See FAULT CODES table.
A fault code followed by a beep indicates an active fault code. A fault code not followed by a beep indicates an inactive fault code stored in memory.

(1)Temperatures below 32 F (0 C) may set false fault code due to low refrigerant pressure. Temperatures above 95 F (35 C) may set false fault code due to temporary high refrigerant pressure.
(2)Open or short in potentiometer feed circuit. At times, motor may overrun and set additional codes. Cycling ignition on and off 2 or 3 times may correct problem.
(3)Open or short in motor drive circuit or sticking or jammed motor flap.

I know what code 23 would mean. The system needs to be recharged. There is probably a leak in the system. What would be some things to check for the code 24 Differential Potentiometer Open/Short Circuit. Also is there a blower motor resitor on this vehicle and where would this be located?
