blower motor

  1. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello. I have an 2005 Arc 9-3 convertible and the blower motor went out. Previous to this the blower would automatically turn on and I've read that could be a problem with the resistor, so I thought I'd replace both. Since this is my daughters car I just wanted to verify if it has an automatic...
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello all! Since buying my 2001 95 wagon, I havent ever had the cabin fans work. It has been pretty temperate by me so I hadn't gotten around to finally tackling it until this week. I ran the ACC calibration and came up with 08/14 codes- read a TON on this forum and wound up fixing both of...

    Hello fellow Saabmates, I've done my research and searched the forums, but couldn't find anyone with the same issue I'm having. Any guidance/help/redirects are welcomed and appreciated. Currently my blower motor is not blowing; however, this is what I have done already in an attempt to fix...
  4. 9-5 Workshop
    Recently acquired a 2006 9-5 wagon. I was told the AC did not work but upon inspection it is the blower motor not working. Does not work on any settings whether heater or AC related. My question is what is the most common reason for blower motor not to work on a Saab 9-5?

    Hello, I have a 2005 93. I had the blower fan replaced in September '16. In December, it would only work intermittently. I brought back to garage and after sitting in his heated shop overnight, it worked again. The same issue started a couple of weeks ago again. I brought it back to garage...

    Stumped on heater fan/blower motor with manual climate control... Working on my brother's '03 and trying to come up with what could be wrong with my replacement of the heater fan/resistor, etc. A bit of background: At some point, the old unit and resistor may have had water damage due to the...

    My Saab is an '01 9-3 SE Manual. Up until today I have had heat and relatively cold A/C in my car and the fan speed could have been whatever was set and it would perform with no issues. Today I turned on my car and the ACC said the fan was on full blast but no air was coming out. I tested the...

    I recently purchased a 2005 Saab 9-3 Linear with MANUAL CLIMATE CONTROL. I found that the cabin fan blower motor would stop working and found some fixes online. I immediately checked the fan itself by pulling out the cabin filter and trying to move it by hand..... it was VERY stiff and did not...
  9. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I purchased a 1999 9-3SE which runs quite well, but the blower motor in the acc does not work. I pulled the whole system apart and tested the blower and it works fine, and the only logical reasoning I can come up with is that there are missing wires leading into the resistor. The connection I'm...

    Hello and thanks for reading. Here's my issue: I had a bad blower motor resistor which was probably caused by my blower motor that had seized. I have replaced the blower motor resistor, and put some WD-40 on the spline of the blower motor and it now works fine, i think. Here's where it gets...
  11. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Ran into what's looking like a common problem with my 2003 9-3 Linear this winter when my cabin fan would stay on even with the ignition off. Based on insight I got in this forum I replaced the resistor and that seemed to fix the problem...until now. The fan speeds change as they should and...

    My blower motor stopped working correctly. It stops, it comes back on, it's weird. I tried this well known and suggested thread http://www.saabcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=165760&page=1 and it's still doing it. (BTW it's 7 SCREWS if you want to take the fan housing down! Remember it now...
  13. 9-5 Workshop
    Okay, it's a long story but back in February I finally got new brushes for my blower motor (I had been driving for 2 years in Northern Minnesota with no heat...brrrr....) Once the refurbished motor was in, the heat worked phenomenal! However, right around May or so it quit working...
