What can I do to fix mafunctioning wiring for a blower motor?
The fan in my 1999 Oldsmobile Alero works intermittenly. After removing the
panel covering the motor, I found that pulling on the wire circled in the diagram
provided that the motor turned on. I have unplugged the wiring and examined
it, and saw no issues. After plugging it back into the motor, I found that
pressing the electrical harness connected to the motor itself got the motor to
turn on. (If I push on the black plastic piece that holds the 'socket' for the 'in'
wiring). I am in no way a car expert, but I do enjoy fixing things myself. Is this
something that I can fix without replacing the motor?
If the connector is damaged you may need to buy a new plug and pigtail and splice it in. I recommend soldering it.
Thanks for the advice.!
