2005 Kia Sportage Question: cant get the blowers to turn off

when using the heating i cant get the blowers to turn off or even go slow or fast they just stay at same speed and when i try to turn off nothing happens -
Answer 1
I would have the blower resistor tested. -
Comment 1
what is a blower resistor and how much is it to repair -
Comment 2
It is the blower speed controller, and sometimes they short internally causing blower to remain on. Pull the a/c-blower fuse. Not sure of the price, I'm not at the shop. Ask someone in your area. -
Comment 3
thank you for ur help so it may just need fuse changed -
Comment 4
No; Remove fuse to shut it off so it won't run the battery down until you get it fixed. Sorry was out fixing broken pipe at the well. -
Comment 5
when i turn off the engine the blowers go off and when i start the car they go on -
Comment 6
You are talking about the heater blower, inside the car correct. There is only one, there might be 2 for the radiator cooling fans. -
Comment 7
yes i am talking about the blowers in the car go on when i start the car and when i turn off the engine off the fans go off -
Comment 8
Take it to someone and tell them you need to have your blower resister checked, and how much will it cost. -
Comment 9
thank you for all your time -
