My phone was slow. Typing is ok.

O.k.,so you want to continue here instead of the call is this correct?

O.k.,locate the 40 amp HVAC blower fuse in the under hood fuse panel.Double check to make sure it is o.k.If it is o.k. test and see if it has power at one terminal that this fuse seats into in the fuse panel ( at or near 12 volts DC) with the key on or off.If it does not have power let me know.

If it does have power but you have no power at the blower motor then this indicates there is a broken wire leading from this fuse to the blower motor.This fuse feeds direct to the blower motor to give it power at all times.

Ok im checking there is full power at the fuse
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I will look for the broken wire

O.k.,It is an orange wire all the way from the fuse to the blower motor.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
far i haven't seen a break but i have power with the swit h off

You have power at the blower with the switch off but not when it is on?Are you testing with a test light or multi meter?

Ask Your Own Saturn Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Multimeter

What does the voltage read with blower switch off and then when the blower switch is switched on?

Ask Your Own Saturn Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
12.7 swit h off 0 switch on

Is this testing with the ground lead from the meter connected to a good ground point and if so have you tried with the ground lead connected to a different ground point to see if the voltage readings change at all with the fan switch on and off?

Ask Your Own Saturn Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
The same reading at different poi ts
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
The blower had stopped while i was driving

O.k.,you are losing voltage off this fuse.Now does the fuse drop the voltage as well when the blower is switched on?

Ask Your Own Saturn Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No the fuse retains full power

O.k.,so you are losing voltage on the orange wire from the fuse to the blower.This is due to a loose terminal connection at the fuse under the fuse box or corrosion in the fuse box or a corroded or damaged wire leading from the fuse to the blower motor.This is the only reason the voltage would drop/become lost like this here.

Ask Your Own Saturn Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Im guessing there is something wrong from the fusebox to the blower

Correct.I am not sure if you saw my last post so I will post it again:

With the temp switch on i unplugged the resistor then i had power to my blower. I plugged the resistor plug back into the resitor then no power to the blower.

Did you see any wiring damage anywhere?

Ask Your Own Saturn Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I traced the system so far nothing i will keep searching there has to be something

It is losing voltage so there has to be a break or damaged or corrosion in the wiring.

I agree

Let me know if you find anything.

One mechanic says its the transmission, I think its something to do with the torque conversion part or it, not a specific gear. Aweful vibration but only in the right combination of engine speed and gear. When the car downshifts and coast to a stop, the noise/vibration vanishes. When I start accelerating it doesn't start until the car is appraoaching what I would guess is fourth gear. But the symtoms come and go throughout the upper gears. I was going to do a ATF and filter change to eliminate that part. The fluid is full and doesn't seem discolored. … read more
