Customer Question
Second opinion] I have...

Second opinion] I have a 2006 kia amanti that has an intermitent blower. I have checked the fuses and they are good. I replaced the blower resistor, seemed to work for a while. Somtimes it will come right away , sometimes it will only come on after driving a while. Today it won't come on at all.

Mechanic's Assistant: Most vehicles have two fuse panels. Have you located both?

No, I only checked one panel under the hood. If it is either fuse then the blower wouldn't work at all would it ? Does the hi speed relay have anything to do with this problem?

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

Yes, I have replaced the resistor and checked the fuse under the hood.

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

Nothing.

Hey how are you

Click on link to view the Heater wiring diagram , can you view this circuit and read it ?

I can try to help you with it

If you do not mind me asking ,are you looking at fixing this yourself or looking to know the most possible cause of this issue and taking it to repair shop for the work ?

Do you have any prior experience in electrical troubleshooting and testing with a test light for power & ground ?

Do you have a test light & or power probe for testing ?

Please let me know

Thank You
