Yesterday, and last night, the weather here in central Iowa turned wintry... 20*F ...35 mph wind, wet snow turning to ice. So, that'* when the blower motor in the '95 SLE chose to quit.
There was power to the connector at the blower motor, and just by wiggling the motor, I got it to run again.
So, here'* the question. Is this typical behavior for a motor on the way out? Or does the motor somehow require a ground to the housing that was re-established by my wiggling. Anyone know what the ground connection looks like when you get the motor out?
The parts store said the motor has only one terminal and grounds to the frame somehow, but my connector clearly carries both 12+ and ground conductors? And, I have some kind of strange, insulating, isolating screws that attach the thick rubber cover over the motor through the mounting holes. These allowed me to wiggle the motor position without too much effort.
So new motor, or just a grounding issue?
