Heater blower working only after hitting the dash. But finally quit. Fuse for Hvac is good. Got any good ideas, where next? Blower resistors or blower motor? Seen like a common problem.

Thanks

It sounds like the blower motor has gone out but to be sure here is a guide that will show you how to test for power and ground at the blower motor and how to replace it.

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

A few months ago my blower for my a/c started to only turn on when I would hit a bump or travel over 60 mph. Now it will not turn on at all. Also, before all of this started, there was a static noise coming from the passenger side of my car that would come on and off when I hit a bump. It would remain on even when I turned the car off. However, this static noise stopped when I started having the a/c issue. Is this an electrical problem? Is it expensive to fix?

Do you have an Auto Temp Control system?
You did say that there was a period when it would still run with the key OFF, right?

Hi
sounds like it could be a blower motor going out/worn out. Do you do any work on cars yourself or family?

The static noise is what stayed on with the car off, not the a/c. No there is no auto temp control. The static noise might have nothing to do with the a/c problem. I just thought it might be helpful.

Blower is on pass side under dash check the wiring for melt/burn/corrosion and if ok test plug for voltage and if ok test blower by removing and applying 12 volts from battery.

Heater problem
2004 Pontiac Grand Prix 6 cyl Automatic 103000 miles

I live in wyoming and the winters are very cold around here. I drive a 2004 Grand prix gt. I went and washed my car and it was probley in the 20 degree range outside. Maybe an hour or so after I washed it my heater all the sudden wouldnt come on. It wouldnt blow any hot air or any air at all for that matter. Could my blower motor be frozen up from washing my car in such cold weather? Or could it be a fuse? I need help

Find the blower motor -turn heater on bang on the blower motor a few times-did it come on if not could be fuse/blower motor relay/control switch/HVACcontrol module/motor control processor/ and motor itself.

I have a 2004 Grand Prix that the heater blower does not work. The car is warmed up and all of the fuses look ok.

Welcome to the forum, I'd have to get at the blower motor connector. With key and hvac turned on, check for voltage and ground at the connector. If that checks out, I suspect a faulty blower motor. Any fuses you check, use a testlite on the fuse circuit, make sure the circuit is hot.

My blower fan does not work(for ac or heat) I hear it, it just doesn't blow. It used to start working again when I pounded the dashboard, now it does not. Where is this heater box duct? Also, to check for 12 volts of power, how do I do this?

Check batt main fuse 4-- 30 amp, in the underhood fuse box. Use a testlite, the circuit should be hot all the time. If that checks out, I'd have to get at the blower motor connector and check for voltage and ground.

The blower fan works intermitantly. When it is not working, if I hit the right side of the center dash (where the controls are located) it starts working. It also starts working if I hit a bump or pot hole. If it is the control module (contains 3 dial switches and the rear dfrost and air conditioner button) is there any way to test it?

Welcome to the forum. Have all trouble codes checked, see if anything points to the hvac system. I'd get at the blower motor connector, everything turned on, check for voltage and ground. If no voltage, I backtrack the circuit. Test when the blower refuses to run.
