Having problems with your Chevrolet Malibu ?

I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu LS 6-cylinder and my heater blower stopped working. I checked the fuses and they are all good, I assume the motor for the blower is bad. I believe the blower is a 1997 - 2003 Chevrolet Malibu 4-Seasons A/C Blower Motor. Do you have any other ideas? Also, where is the heater blower motor located? Do you have instructions to put this unit in? Please advise. [email protected]

Answers :

Replace the blower motor resistor. Remove the shroud below glove box, 2 screws and a snap-pop fitting. Be careful of the courtesy light. Remove the blower moter and disconnect the purple/black power connector to it - - you'll need this extra room to work with. 2 more screws, same size, 6.5mm on mine, 7or 8mm on some others, that holds the blower motor resistor in place. This replacement part is less than 40 bones at most parts store. Unplug, replace, re-install, test and you're on your way with about 2 hours of slow paced effort in your own driveway. Typical cost at a garage - up to $400, what a sham.
The blower motor is located under the dash on the passengers side. I will assume the blower quit on ALL Speeds, not just speeds other than High.

\015\012Using a 12 Volt test light or DC Voltmeter (DVOM):

\015\012Check for power to the blower motor with the Key ON and Blower set to HIGH. Unplug the electrical connector for the hot wire and use a known good ground. If you have about 12 Volts with no electrical connector damage, the blower motor is bad.
