    Angry 2005 Deville replaced blower motor twice stopped working 3rd time

    My husband has replaced blower motor two times and has stopped again all within 6-8 week period of time. These are used parts but he is thinking something else is going on. I noticed at first the original ac would go down low when i turned corners then it stopped completely. He bought a usedblower motor put it in and it workedfor 2 weeks. Returned it they gave us another and same thing happened. He checked fuses but we dont have a clue. You know how hot it gets in DC in August, so I need help fast. Thank fellow CA I lovers.

    A used blower is always a gamble, but check the ground.

    I looked online and I see off-brand blower units for ~$60 brand new, with the AC Delco OEM units going for ~$160.

    At this point, I would definitely recommend spending the $60 for a brand new blower unit.

    Of course, 'Ranger' always has sage advice, so I would be sure to check all connections thoroughly and clean/repair as necessary.

    like Ranger suggested - check the grounds -
    they are behind the passenger side kick panel -

    but usually a bad ground would be an intermittent problem -
    "fan stopped - hit a bump and it started again" type of situation -

    I also doubt a bad ground would display the same problem with multiple blowers -

    I have absolutely no problem in suggesting a TYC brand blower -
    a high quality blower - at a GREAT price -
    TYC Part # 700110 - $44.08 - with free shipping -
    http://www.amazon.com/TYC-700110-Pon...ype=automotive

    there are even some TCY 70011 blowers listed on ebay for $40 with free shipping -
