2006 Spectra EX: with a heater problem..I turn the control switch

Customer Question

I have 2006 Spectra EX with a heater problem. I get some heat, not much, and also, I get some defrosting, but cannot hear the motor run when I turn the control switch all the way to a 4. What could be wrong?

Hello I will help you with your question,


The blower resistor mounted next to the blower motor in the bottom of the blower case under the right side of the dash has likely failed. I can help you test to be sure if you have a 12 volt testlight or voltmeter but I am fairly sure replacing the blower resistor will solve your problem. Follow the wiring from the blower motor to the resistor


Let me know how I can help you with this

The resistor is about $40 and takes ten minutes to install.


You may be charged a diagnostic fee so the total is about $120 to repair this
