Will I need a blower motor or resistor? on 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix

After the car sits for a few hours, the blower doesnt work sometimes when I start it. It usually kicks on after a short time, however, today it wouldn't come on at all. Any suggestions? Thanks

you need to test it with a test light to see if it has power. it may be just the motor. Roy

If it is the motor, maybe the brushes are worn or sticking or there is a bad spot on the armature, when it fails, hit the area near the motor with you hand and see if it then works, if it does replace the motor. Best to do proper tests. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info.
