BMW 330i Blower Final Stage Fan Resistor May Fail
BMW 330i Problem
Average Mileage: 115,714 mi (95,000 mi - 134,000 mi)
My heater/Air conditioner blower has always blown intermittently, and at varying speeds. 3 days ago the blower stoped working altogether. I can still feel heat from the vents, but is not blowing out and causes quite a problem in the morning when the windows are foggy, will not defrost.
