Asked by Sep 15, 2013 at 10:24 AM about the 2000 Nissan Sentra SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Once the car starts, the AC comes at full blast and I cannot turn it off. I tried the "control knob" to turn it off, but to no avail. It keeps at full blast.

Probably a failed Variable Blower Control, also known as the blower motor amp. When this fails, the blower motor will either not work at all, or it will stay on one speed like what is happening in your case.

when the amp or in this cars case the blower motor resistor fails you'd have high speed but no low or medium speeds. the controls sometimes fail on these. is it only the blower speed that you cannot control or is it also the hot/cold or def/vent/floor controls that are acting up? I'd prob go to a dealer and spend a couple $$ as replacing the wrong parts adds up on these cars and cheaper to do it right first time.

You can change the resistor pretty easily. Go get one at your favorite parts store. It's under the glove box. You only have to remove the glove box (2 screws or a few more). You'll save more than half the price since the time to change the resistor is usually more expansive than the resistor itself.
