    2002 SLS front blower not blowing

    So, I'm new here, have searched other threads before posting but no luck. I Seville has had an ongoing problem with the A/C blower, FRONT ONLY. It basically works when it wants to. When it works, everything works fine, blows cold, speed controls are fine. When is DOESN'T WORK, air comes thru the vents only on the highway and comes thru cold. Tricky part, passenger side and right vent in the middle comes thru cold, left vent, driver vent and leg vents come thru hot. Rear A/C works fine and cold. Any help would be very appreciated.

    Hiya ..............

    Study and use the proper car/year group instructions in the sticky post just above this thread - "How to pull codes" - Your car has a built-in code reader/scanner/memory and it will tell you if there's anything wrong with most of the HVAC blower/door/temperature control circuits. The system uses the 3 DIC control buttons just right of the instrument panel. When you enter diagnostics the buttons change function - study the sticky.

    Get any stored codes, and then use the link to OBD-II codes in the sticky. Decipher it all and post it here.

    Might be a failing blower, but a bad ground in the passengers side kick panel has been known to cause the same intermittent blower problem.

    I don't believe the blower is a monitored item.

    Sorry it took so long to post back. I did the code check and only thing that came back had to do with why the driver side vents blow hot. No other codes came out.

    @Ranger, what would I be looking for on the passenger side kick panel?

    ----------------------------
    remove the passenger side kick panel -
    behind it you will see a bunch of black wires on a bolt -
    those are grounds -

    remove the bolt - clean the surface - inspect the connectors -
    re-install the bolt -

    if that doesn't solve the blower problem - replace the blower -

    the best deal on a blower is TYC 700098 -
    a high quality part at a great price -

    the best price I found was on ebay - $47.02 -

    if you don't like ebay - you can get one from amazon for $50.92 -
