Heater motor

Asked by Jan 01, 2013 at 01:23 PM about the 1995 GMC Sierra 1500 K1500 SL 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My heater motor only comes on when it wants to.  Most often it will come on when it's freezing cold. I always leave it
switched on.  If I start the truck in the morning it usually is on, when I stop and re start it usually doesn't work.  
Changed the resistor which solved the lw speed problem but now........

The blower motor needs replacement. The brushes are short and when the motor heats up, one or both don't reach the commutator.
