Hey rob

how many miles

Have you checked the blower motor it self , like unplug it and give straight power to it from external battery

have you checked the blower motor resistor ( common cause )

have u checked the a/c control unit for connector burn marks in rear of it ?

when you turn blower fan on you get nothing out of blower is this what happening now

let me know

Hi Chad,The car has a little over 200K miles. The blower stopped working about the same time as the ABS and Traction indicators came on. Also the DRLs stopped working. Would a blower resistor do all of that?
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 6 months ago.

hey how are you

the abs /traction is separate issue , probably a abs wheel sensor or abs pump situation, loose ground etc ... i will need abs codes to know that one

the blower resistor will cause blower operation to stop , but the drl should not stop unless it is on that same circuit , give me few minutes , I will look up wiring diagram and see if they share the same circuit .

Thanks

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 6 months ago.

hi , the drl is not on the blower circuit so they are not related

hope that was helpful to you let me know if you need anything else

A POSITIVE RATING IS MUCH APPRECIATED

This post will stay open for you to come back and ask me any follow up questions you may have on this issue .

Thank You Rob
