What I consider as strange - could use some advice
My 2003 se is causing to me to stare longingly at bridge abutments.
The blower motor started acting up about a month ago. I figured ok I need to replace it, use my snow brush and whack the bottom of the dash area and it would start to work again. Sounds simple enough right ?
If I turn to Full lock left only the fan (when working) slows and my voltage gauge drops drastically. (almost all the way to the left) - don't remember if that is 0 or what but not good. Now if that wasn't strange enough when I step on the brake the fan speeds up.
What the frog is going on. I was discussing this with a mechanic friend and he said there was some type of resistor but he couldn't remember if it was for the bonneville or the GP.
At a cost of 75.00 used and 125 new I don't want to be replacing something I don't have to, if it'* a resistor then I will replace it.
Just some add on information. As I said above, full lock only turning left. When I "whack" the underneath of the dash it'* hit or miss (no pun intended) as sometimes it runs and I can adjust the speed and it lasts for the length of my drive 20 min to 2 hours. And sometimes it runs for 10 or 15 min then stops again.
I haven't seen these exact symptons when I searched so I thought I would throw them all at you at the same time and see if this is 1 problem or 6.
Also, my battery terminals are clean, I checked just to make sure that wasn't part of the voltage drop.
