Answers from the Automotive Experts

Georgia Brown, Director of Education at National Independent Automobile Dealers Association (NIADA) It could be only a fuse that needs to be replaced. You can buy these at an auto supply store or in the automotive dept in most large discount stores. Check your owners manual for location of fuse box and fuse reference information.

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Yowanda, Typically, you have a plastic cover to be removed under the passenger side dash area. I recommend that you remove the glove box with the trim, these may be 9/32nds screw heads to remove. When the glove box is removed you should have access to the blower motor where you can remove the electrical connector for easy replacement. Hope this Helps!! A. J. Valle

Judy Curry, Co-Founder and Vice President of Marketing at Currys Auto Service Hi Yowanda, We would not recommend that you try to fix this yourself, there are too many things that have to be tested and the repair is tricky! You have a relay, an electronic speed control and a blower motor itself. You have to check for power at the blower before you can condemn it. One test you can do at home is turn on the blower, under the dash on the passengers side, give the bottom of the blower a good hard smack, if the blower is the only thing wrong, it usually will start up ( does not mean its ok). (We call this the Fonz approach!) Hope this tip helps a bit!

Kerri Papajohn, Marketing Director at USA Sealants, Inc. Replacing the blower motor can be a DIY project. I just checked youtube and there is a installation video on there if you want a visual prior to DIY. Blower motor typically under passenger side dash - verify with your owners manual. I'd probably still get a shop to look at it to make sure this is the issue.

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Yowanda, If you have no air blowing, or it only works on high, then you may have a bad blower motor relay. They typically cost about $40 for the part. It sounds like they are giving you a price for a new blower motor. You can look in your owner's manual to see where the fuses and the relay are for the blower motor so that you can check them. The blower motor is probably located under the dash on the passenger side. Sometimes the relay is near it. If you can get to it, it's easy to just unplug and replace. It would be best to have the problem diagnosed so that you know if it's something you can do or not. Lori Johnson
