Customer Question

My chevy 2001 suburban rear ac blower died and I am trying to find out what fuse protects that system. I have tried several that say AC and HAVAC but no fan controls. When you engage the rear system nothing happens-no fan or blower operating--maybe a shot blower?

Ok, good, we need to check the power and ground at the rear blower motor. this will tell us if we a bad blower motor or a electrical problem to the blower motor.

you will need to remove the right rear quarter molding to gain access to the blower motor. there is two wires going to the blower motor. one is a purple wire, which should have 12 volts when the blower is turned on. the other is a black wire which is ground. if you have a test light, just go across the purple and black, if the the test lights then the power and ground is good!! and the blower motor is bad!!

Removal Procedure

  1. Remove the rear seat.
  2. Remove the garnish molding.
  3. Remove the trim panel.
  4. Remove the door sill plate.

    This may be getting a more technical than I wanted--but I should be able to check the blower--if bad can you tell me about what a replacement would run and the time/labor involved?

    Thanks for your help.
    Expert:  goodwrench9124 replied 6 years ago.

    sure the rear blower motor takes a little less than an hour to replace labor time is .7 of an hour. and here is the part price. depending on what the shop rate is, translate to about 50- 75.00 dollars in labor
