The HVAC blower motor may stop working at one or more speeds due to a faulty blower motor resistor block. Our technicians recommend to confirm the resistor is at fault by first checking the operation of the switch.

    The blower motor stopped working at the lowest speed, then over time the second then third now the fourth speed has stopped working. I'm only left with the highest speed on the control switch that works. the repair was replacement faulty blower motor resistor block.

    Same issues with 4 and 5 only working when the switch decides to operate correctly. AC turns itself off and on. GM has replaced the switch 3 times 1 or 2 times was under warranty. Now the blower is going out.
