My car just recently stopped blowing air out of all the vents. The air conditioning is running when turned on it just doesn't blow air out. The heat will not blow out either. Occasionally you can be driving, or just turning on the car and the air conditioner / heat will blow out. It will usually stay on until the ignition is truned off. But there is no guarantee it will come back on. With winter coming I will need my heat blowing out properly. Please help

Sounds like the blower motor is going out. Sometimes they will work then when shut off not work, or if you hit a bump in the road. Etc. Electric motors will do that. Find the blower, itis behind the right side of the dash. Use a test light to see if it has power when it wont work, if so the motor is bad. If no power get back to me and I will tell you where to check next

Hey guys, I'm having the same exact issue. I did some research online and discovered it is the blower motor. I bought the relay for it just in case because others were having the same issue, although I couldnt find the relay on my car. I removed the glove compartment and I can see the blower motor underneath the dash on the right. I tapped on it and whal-a the ac started blowing. It worked for only a day but now when I tap on it, it just wants to give me a breeze and shut off. You can hear the motor trying to turn, but it wont blow out hard anymore. I went to Autozone to find the part, but it didnt look the same. Basically, on my motor, the end of it is visible and it extends a little downward from the motor. The one from autozone is flat. Also, I noticed the opening where the hose fits is smaller than the one on my motor. So I am out of luck. Where can I find this motor at? Also, is this an easy part to replace or will I have to take it to a technician?

Places like Autozone mostly seel universal motors, that way they dont have to stock a bunch of them. You may need to go to Nissan for the exact same motor. The job only pays.8 of an hour so it cant be too difficult
