Your question: Is there a way to test a blower motor resistor?

Why are Britax car seats so expensive?

How do you test a blower motor with a multimeter?

Using a multimeter set on the Ohm scale, use the positive lead and test the black wire. To check the purple wire for current, use your ignition key and turn it to the run setting, turn the heater power to full power and set the multimeter to DC power. If your meter reads “no current” the motor is no good.

Can you bypass blower motor resistor?

In the highest speed state, the blower resistor is bypassed completely and the fan is connected directly to the car’s battery, which allows maximum current through the motor. Power to the blower motor is fed through the blower motor resistor, so if it fails or has any issues power can be cut off to the motor.

Is there a fuse for the blower motor resistor?

A fuse is often located on the resistor board. The fuse only protects the low and medium blower speeds. High speed will still work if the resistor fuse is blown.

What happens when blower resistor goes bad?

Power to the blower motor is fed through the blower motor resistor, so if it fails or has any issues power can be cut off to the motor. A blower motor without power will not be able to produce any air pressure, and as a result the heating and air conditioning system will be left with no air coming from the vents.

Why does my blower motor resistor keeps melting?

Trent, one of the biggest reasons for blower motor resistors to have shorten life is actually because of faulty blower motor drawing too many amps, some times melting wires/plugs, heating up resistors shortening their life.

How do I test my blower motor power?

Keeping the black lead on a good ground, usually a bolt on the engine block, and the blower switch turned on, use the red lead to probe the plug that usually attaches to the blower motor. The meter should read between 9 and 11 volts or the test light will light up.

How do I test a resistor with a multimeter?

Pick out a random resistor and set the multimeter to the 20kΩ setting. Then hold the probes against the resistor legs with the same amount of pressure you when pressing a key on a keyboard. The meter will read one of three things, 0.00, 1, or the actual resistor value.

What can cause a blower motor to stop working?

In a situation where the motor doesn’t work on any speed, the most likely causes are: a blown power supply fuse, a bad motor ground connection, bad motor speed control module or a failed motor. On all systems, a failed blower motor is least likely.

Can you fix a resistor?

Things You Will Need

Resistors are easy to find if they have become defective because they can be measured with the electronic device turned off. Once a resistor is found to be defective, replacing it can return the electronic device to correct operation. Make sure you’re going to replace the resistor that’s defective.
