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.

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

Can that be checked with ohm meter?
Cadillac Mechanic: tim's auto repair, mechanic replied 3 months ago
