Customer Question
The blower motor worked...

The blower motor worked intermittently. It didn't turn on for 3 months until few days ago. I wiggled the wire at the connector and it came on again. I disconnectected the connector and it was melted a little bit.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?

2003 Seville SLS. 160,000 MILES. Automatic

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Seville yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. Just what I've told you above. When i wiggled the ground wire is when it tirned on. But it's melted at the other end. Not sure what wire that is.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The power outlet to plug in charger and passenger seat heater has recently quit as well.

or from the resister to the motor itself?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
It plugs directly to the motor on the side of it. It has 3 wires.
Cadillac Mechanic: tim's auto repair, mechanic replied 6 months ago

ok..you may need to replace that harness,,

the problem is that the fan blower itself may be bad and pulling way too many amps,,causing the harness[wires] to overheat

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Can that be checked with ohm meter?
Cadillac Mechanic: tim's auto repair, mechanic replied 6 months ago

well,,not really sense you do have it working now,,we know that it is getting a connection at the moment
