Q: Heat and air issue

asked by on

Car is not blowing out heat or air whatsoever I have replaced blower motor and resistor I have checked my fuses and still nothing.. I was curious before I order the part if it's the power box that sets power to the blower motor because when I turn the heat or air on full blast the car sounds as if it's on nothing coming out! Doesn't seem like a thermostat issue could it be a belt instead? But please contact me back asap !! Thank you for your time

Q: When I first start my car in the morning it has a squealing sound till its warmed up.
