Q: AC not working

asked by on

The AC and heater will not turn on.

Hi there. If it is your blower motor not coming on, then it is possible that the blower motor resistor is bad. I would recommend having a technician from YourMechanic come out and test the resistance and voltage at the blower motor resistor, when the switch is on, and see if that is your problem.
