Hello I will help you with your question,


Can you use a 12 volt testlight or voltmeter to check for power to the motor with the blower selected on high and the key on?



Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I can probably find a tester. Where would I put the sensors?
Expert:  George H. replied 5 years ago.

The best place to check is at the red/black stripe wire at the connector with it plugged into the motor. Use a straight pin to probe into the connector and place the other lead of the tester to a clean metal piece to ground it.


The likely problem is the field effect transistor mounted next to the motor if all the other controls for the heater/AC/blower appear to work properly and you find that you do have power through the motor.


Let me know if you do not have power to the motor and I will help you from there

We tested the motor like you said and the red light did light up.
Expert:  George H. replied 5 years ago.

OK then you need to replace the transistor as long as the rest of the controls seem to operate normally. Check for any burned or melted connections and remove the screws so you can slide it out of the blower case

Thank you

It appears that the wiring plug for the transistor is burned and melted. Maybe that is all that it is.

Thanks for your help.
