Blower stopped working

    Hi all,

    I'm new to the Chevy pick-up world, and I need to know where to start with this issue.

    My HVAC fan stopped working the other day. The switch seemed to be a little flaky - sometimes the speed did not match the switch setting, and the other day it stopped altogether. No fuses are blown. Does this seem like a switch issue or a resistor issue or a blower motor issue?

    Also, there has been water dripping out of the fan housing (or at least that is where it looks like it is coming from). It has been raining for the last few days, and I'm guessing that the cowl is not draining properly. Any ideas how to unplug the spot where it is supposed to drain?

    Thanks in advance

    hi sounds like you have 2 thinks. one is do you have a text light' unplug the blower motor and see if you have power to the motor. if you do try to ground the motor if it dont start. replace it. hope this helps you out ralph

    I don't want to sound too stupid, but what is a text light?

    hi its a light you use to see if you have voltage on a wire. go to any parts store and tell them you want one. they are cheap. maybe 5 to 7 dollars. then ground the one end and stick the other end in the wire. if it lights up its good ralph
