Q: My fan for my a c and heater is only blowing air on 2 3 and 4 settings but not 1

asked by on

My fan on my ac and heater is only blowing air on 2 3 and 4 setting but not 1 but i can feel air when i have the fan on 1 when i am moving down the road. When i put it on recirculation i cant feel air on setting 1 at all.

My car has 36000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The blower motor resistor, in the motor speed control circuit, is probably faulty. If your vehicle does not have automatic temperature control, the part that needs to be replaced is relatively inexpensive. If you desire a definitive diagnosis, and replacement of the "resistor block" if needed, right at your location, please request blower motor resistor inspection/replacement. If you request that service, the responding certified mechanic will get this taken care of for you promptly. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.

Hi Ricardo. We answered your question earlier. However, if you didn't receive the reply, here is what we stated earlier. In most cases, an EVAP leak will create an OBD-II trouble code. The best way to detect an EVAP leak...

Q: Could it be my thermostat

The in dash HVAC blower motor sometimes relies on a resistor block to vary motor speed. If so equipped, and the resistor block has failed, the motor will not work. In addition, faults can develop within the blower's electric drive...

Q: Fans working on 4th setting only

Blower speed in your application is controlled by a replaceable resistor block in the blower motor circuit. If various blower fan speeds have become unusable, and you are now left with only one speed, a common cause is the resistor...
