Your BMW uses a blower motor resistor to control the speed. It is located on the passenger side of the heater/ac case near the firewall. If you are laying in the passenger front floor and look to the left and approximately 4 inches from the firewall and 2 inches above the carpet, you should see a connector with five wires. The resistor is held in the heater box by a plastic tab about a inch long. depress the tab downward and remove the blower resistor.

Hi. And welcome to FixYa. You need to remove the glove box door, and then you can get to the blower motor. 3 screws holds it in. Easy to remove.

A FIxYa rating for my assistance (4 blue diamonds) would realy be appreciated.

most likely its the blower motor resister and is located behind the glove box. there are a few philips head screws you will need to remove inside the glove box and under the glove box to get the glove box out after that it should be a walk in the park

SOURCE: Changing Blower motor on Chevy '98 4x4

It's simple!...Open glove box door...youll see a plastic shell that is the glove box rear portion. You should find 4, 9/32nds or 7mm (same thing just SAE or Metric) screw heads. Undo four screws and with a flat blade screw driver, gently pry out on shell at either side to clear the door straps. Once clear, just work out of resting place, set aside. You will now see like 5 relays mounted on top of the air handler. Remove bracket that holds four of them + one that is mounted alone. Pull out of the way. Checking both inside and outside, remove all screws, bolts, nuts as it were, until it is obvious there are none left. Now, this is assuming this is where your problem lies! If you are simply having a blower problem, it might be the blower module mounted right beneath and just behind relays on top of air handling box. Just take your time so you dont break anything. Good luck...theroad......

SOURCE: where is the blower motor resistor on a 1999 chev

It is behind your glove box. You have to make sure when take out the glove box be careful of the tabs and also remove the wire on the side. You will see a black box with a a bunch of wires coming out of it. You need to disconnect that mess of wires and remove the two screws that are holding the resistor in the box. Remove it and put the new one in. Be care not to bend the coils all up on the resister. Hope this makes sense, keep me posted, be glad to help.

SOURCE: Air Conditioner blower motor resistor was replaced

Motor is also energized by a relay. check that and also check that the motor itself is good by running a hot lead right to it. I'm sure you already checked the fuse and know the switch is good?

Blower moter does not work on high


I have had to replace my blower motor relay on my 2003 Dodge Caravan twice. I think the blower resistor is is under the hood on the firewall.
But, the relay module is on the inside on the passenager side. Open the glove box. Then pull the hinge tabs so that the glove box door drops all of th eway down. Look into the opening and you will see the relay. The part was about $12 at Autozone and can be replaced in about 5 minutes.
My blower motor would only work on high both times. Quick, simple, easy and inexpensive repair. Once you see the module, you will be amazed at how easy this repair is. The hardest part is finding it behind your glove box.

the blower motor is located under the passenger side of the dash. The blower motor resistor is located behind the glove box assembly. You will need to remove the glove box assembly and then you will see the resistor. It will have one connector with four or five wires and will be held to the HVAC unit with 2 screws.

I don`t know what year your car is but my 91 Escort had 4 little connections under the glove box where the passengers feet would be right in front of the blower moter (i.e. some one sitting in the passenger seat could hit these 4 relay type things if they kicked their leg) and my had been dammaged and that stopped my blower motor from working until I straightened them out and reconnected them all.

Where is the fan in a 2000 dodge caravan


I am assuming you are asking about the Blower Fan and not the Radiator Fan?
The Blower Fan is located below the Passenger side Dash. It is inside the black Duct work.
May I ask what the problem is?
Is the Blower working or only working on High? If only on High then the Blower Motor is fine and the Blower Motor Resistor that controls the Low to High speeds is bad. This is located behind the Glove Box in the Dash and on the firewall. Remove the Glove Box to access. It is approximately 3 1/2 inches by 1 1/2 inches and has 3 to 4 wires going into it.
There is also a Front Blower Motor Relay located in the Relays and Fuses.
Before replacing the Blower Motor, get back with me (for free) and let me know. This may save you alot of money in the long run, saving you from purchasing parts you may not need!
Let me know if this helped, and let me know what the problems (symptoms/signs) are.
Contact me in the Comment Section of your Posted problem.

Have lost fan to heatr and ac...where is the fuse box or diagram?


1. Does the Blower work on High (or #4) only? If so then it is not the Front Blower Motor or the Relay that is bad, but it is the Resistor which is located behind the Glove box. Follow step #a. below and take out the Glove Box to access. It has 3 to 4 wires going into it. The wiring path is: Switches to the Resistor and then to the Motor.
2. The Front Blower Motor Relay is located in the IPM - Fuse and Relay Center. It is located in a box within the engine compartment. However: (restated) IF the Blower does only work on High then this Relay is good and you should only replace the Resistor Only. The Identification and Location of the Relays and Fuses is located on the back side (inside) of the IPM cover. Remove the cover. The Front Blower Motor Relay is the same Type (size and shape) as several other Relays in the panel. Switch out the Front Blower Motor Relay with a non-engine operation Relay for a function that you know works. Recheck the operations of both functions. If the Front Blower Relay now works and the other function now does not work, it was the Relay was bad and needs to be replaced.
a. Disconnect the Negative Cable from the Battery and wait at least two (2) minutes to deactivate the Airbag Sensors.
b. Remove the Glove Box.
c. Disconnect the Electrical Connection.
d. Unbolt/Unscrew the bolts/metal screws and remove the Resistor.
Installation is reverse of above.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Blower motor runs even when ignition switch is off. Also where is the blower motor relay located?


remove glove box, look on top of heater box in recessed portion. You will see a muti-wire plug facing up. This is the blower resistor. Check for burnt connections by removing plug (common problem). Blower high speed relay located above blower motor (also behind glove box). Check for burnt connections. Repair harness available through G.M. dealer.
