  • I'm sure some of you guys have recieved the recall letters Blower Motor resistor on Chevy Silverabo not Blower. Spoke with you guys.

    There is a recall on the blower motor wire harness for chevrolet trucks. I took mine to a chevy dealer and had it replaced for free.

    The Chevrolet Silverado has 18 problems reported for blower fan stops chevy just sent out a recall on this item i received it sat the 26th of nov they .

    Just shows anyone can do it. It's usually caused by the blower motor or blower resistor going bad! Posted on Jun 20, Failing blower motor resistor blocks are a common problem with many GM vehicles. For a better experience, please enable JavaScript in your browser before proceeding.

    Now it seems that the only speed that works is high. Is the blower motor starting to fail? Each selection of the blower control directs electrical power through a different resistor. The job of the resistor is to reduce the amount of electrical energy available to operate a circuit. A simple way to think of it, a resistor slows electricity down. There are some household item we can use as an example. Think of an electric blender: Each speed you select sends the electricity through a resistor with a different value.

    The same holds true for the blower motor in your vehicle, the higher the number you select the faster the blower motor will spin. Understanding this makes it easy to realize that blenders are good and the blower for your heater is too. The fight between the 2 results in heat. Just look into your toaster when it is working: Time changes things, rust, corrosion or a loose connector create a little too much heat for things like blower resistor blocks, resulting in a melt down.

    The image to the left shows a melt down of a GM resistor block. If you click on the image you can get a really good view of the damage. Also note the burnt red wire on the connector. Which is the likely cause for the melt down. The good, being inside the heater box the movement of the air created by the blower helps cool the resistors. The problem is the water tends to get on the blower resistor too. The image to the left is the resistor side of the melted resistor block seen above.

    Click on the image for a good view. To the left you can see the replacement blower resistor block. More often than not when replacing the blower resistor block, the connector for the wiring to the resistor block needs to be replaced as well.

    You can see the damage to the wiring in an earlier image. The replacement connector is often referred to a a pig-tail. The connector comes with the replacement terminals and wires. A pretty easy fix! Failing blower motor resistor blocks are a common problem with many GM vehicles. Not only a recall but if you have paid to have this repair performed you can receive a refund on the repairs.

    Also the affected parts have an extended warranty! Customer letters for this Special Coverage were mailed in phases. Letters for the final phase will begin mailing on January 4, , and so the reimbursement expiration date for this Special Coverage has been extended to January 31, Please discard all copies of bulletin , issued May On some model year Chevrolet Avalanche, Suburban, Tahoe; GMC Yukon, Yukon XL; and model year Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra vehicles equipped with a manual heating, ventilation, and air conditioning HVAC system CJ3 or heavy duty heater C42 , the interface between the electrical terminals of the relay resistor module and the wiring connector that powers the module may be incapable of conducting higher current levels for sustained periods of blower motor operation.

    In addition, moisture and other contaminants may enter the fresh air intake plenum and contact the internal circuit of the module or corrode the terminals.

    If any of these were to occur, the relay resistor module or wiring connector could overheat and the HVAC blower may not function on certain blower settings or may be inoperative. This may be accompanied by a burning smell or smoke. This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 10 years or , miles , km , whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership. Customer requests for reimbursement of previously paid repairs to correct the condition described in this bulletin are to be submitted to the dealer prior to or by December 31, Repairs must have occurred within the 10 years of the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, or , kilometres, whichever occurs first.

    When a customer requests reimbursement, they must provide the following: If the work was done by someone other than a GM dealership, the amount of reimbursement will be limited to the amount that the repair would have cost GM to have it completed by a GM dealership. Due to part availability, owner letters will be released in phases starting with older model year first.
