HiCustomer Thank you for asking your question on Just Answer.

Can you tell me if you have the Manual or Automatic system (automatic has a digital display that you would set the temperature on).

Also, can I assume you have AC too?

Thanks

Chevy Mechanic: Greg A, Master Troubleshooter replied 9 years ago

OK. Then you have two possibilities.

1 - The relay on the blower motor resistor pack has failed, and the resistor pack will have to be replaced.

2 - The fuse that supplies power to the blower motor when the switch is set to High is bad (in the upper-right of the schematic).

I would check that fuse first (in the engine wiring harness junction block) and make sure power is making it to and from that fuse.

Please let me know what you find or if you need further instructions.

Hi again.

Here is a diagram of the Engine Wiring Junction Block.

I believe the fuse you will be looking for is # XXXXX (see table below).

i checked the fuse it is good and i replaced the blower motoer relay it clicks once when i switch from 4 to 5
Chevy Mechanic: Greg A, Master Troubleshooter replied 9 years ago
Is that the relay on the blower motor resistor pack?
Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 9 years ago
yes
Chevy Mechanic: Greg A, Master Troubleshooter replied 9 years ago

Let me do a little checking. I thought the relay was "integrated" into the resistor pack.

But if it can be replaced, you will have to measure to make sure that the power is getting to the input of that relay, and is making to the output. If not, you could have a burned trace on the resistor assembly board.

Back soon, Greg A.

it is integrated it resistor is connects to the hardness fron the ac controls then go to the blower motor and has the resistor board that goes into the plastic "pipe" that goes from the blower to somewhere
Chevy Mechanic: Greg A, Master Troubleshooter replied 9 years ago

Hi again,

I believe the resistor pack should look something like this, where the relay is enclosed inside the "box" I have drawn below.

Is this what you have?

Thanks

Customer reply replied 9 years ago
yes
Chevy Mechanic: Greg A, Master Troubleshooter replied 9 years ago

OK. Well if you can hear that relay clicking, then you will actually have to test to see if the power is coming into that relay, from the fuse you said you checked. Then make sure that the power can make it to the output.

What I would do is probe Pin G (should be an orange wire) when the controls are set to High, and the ignition is turned on. You can use a multimeter set on the voltage scale, or a test light, to check for power on that pin.

Then check for power coming out of what should be a purple wire and going to the blower motor. You will need to have power there too. If the current is not making it through that path when the system is switched to High, then there has to be a connection problem with that relay.

Please let me know what you find, or if you need more help.

Take Care, Greg A.

ill check then get back with u in 3 hour if you r awake
Chevy Mechanic: Greg A, Master Troubleshooter replied 9 years ago

I am in West Coast time, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Just so you know, usually the Resistor modules are sold and replaced as one assembly. I checked on Rockauto.com and found that they cost about $25-$35.

On some of my older vehicles, I have gotten away with replacing relays on the resistor modules, but they don't seem to last very long. I don't think the "generic" relay I put in there could stand the higher current when the motor is on high.

Take Care, Greg A.

before i go i was going to tell you i bought my resistor from rockauto last week and put it on to day so i tell you later what happen with volt test
Chevy Mechanic: Greg A, Master Troubleshooter replied 9 years ago

Thanks for letting me know. You may have got a bad module there. It happens some times.

i tested the g pin and from the red wire same as purple i got 12 volts from both, could the motor be bad, even though that doesn't make since i would not work on high
Chevy Mechanic: Greg A, Master Troubleshooter replied 9 years ago

Hi again Tex. Sorry to get back to you so late, but I was out for a late supper with my wife.

It does sound kind of strange. I would think that if the motor runs on the lower speeds, it should run on the high speed setting.

Did you make the measurements on the motor side of the relay with everything still connected? If not, I would reconnect everything and "back-probe" the pin that leads to the motor (red or purple wire - the output side) and watch the voltage for changes between the high setting and the next lower setting that works. If you do that, please let me know what the two voltage readings are (assuming you have a voltmeter).

I would hate for you to replace the motor and then have the same results, but I suppose I have seen stranger things happen. It just doesn't make sense to me that the motor would run at all speeds except high, if the motor is bad.

Another thing you can try is applying power (and ground) directly to the motor connector pins. That would be the same as using the high setting through that relay.

Please let me know what you find.

Take Care, Greg A.

i tested and i got 12.6 volts on all settings so am officially stumped i stuck red prob on red wire an black on black and i switch through the settings and got 12.6 so i hope you can help somehow
Chevy Mechanic: Greg A, Master Troubleshooter replied 9 years ago

Next step is to apply power and ground directly to the motor. That means pull the connector to the motor loose, the apply power directly to the motor connector pins. The motor should spin a full speed.

This is starting to get a little baffling. The schmatic does not show that the ground is switched, and your measurements look correct. Strange.
