No air is coming out of the rear AC vents located on the back of the console. I do not her any motor either. Where is the blower motor located for the rear AC blower motor?
Do you
have the same problem?

Good afternoon.

It is located in the left rear. The plastic panel has to be removed to access it.

If you mean the vents on the front floor console between the seats, those get air from the front HVAC unit. The rear unit puts air out through the vents around the back seat.

On my vehicle there are vents on the back of the console along with controls for the rear blower motor. The front AC dash vents are all blowing air fine. There is no air blowing from my rear vents. I am not talking about any floor vents. If the vents on the console comes from the front HVAC unit would I not be getting air out these vents?

ASEmaster 6371 by the panel on the left hand side I take to mean the drivers side. Is that correct? Also, no noise or air coming out of the rear console vents. This is the first part that comes to mind, although it could be something else.

The rear auxiliary AC/Heat module is located in the drivers side rear 1/4 panel area. It has ducts that blow heat/AC to the rear seat area.
There is also a blower motor in the center console if you have the third row seats. This blows air out the center console if it has that option.
Then there are vents at the rear of the console between the front seats.

No blower noise at all can mean a bad blower motor bad blower resistor or a blown fuse that powers the unit.
The motor and resistor are both in the rear behind the trim panel.

The fuse #13 30A is in the power distribution box. As you say you have no rear blower activity this would be the first item to check.

Thanks Steve and Asemaster6371 for the help. Last week I took my SUV to a well known and very respected car shop in Phoenix. After about an hour they told me the blower motor was no longer available and if it was it would be under the front console. When I came home and queried the internet it showed I could purchase the blower motor for the 1998 at multiple auto part stores. Now I think this is something I can do myself. Is there or can you provide instructions to remove the left side trim panel? Any link or you tube available that you know of showing how to remove the trim panel?

Thanks,
Glenn
