Silverago Fan runs only on high

13 posts in this topic

I hopped in the 2004 Silverado on Saturday and the fan only worked on high. It has been working on all speeds before that. I asked a friend with a Tahoe and he said this happened to him and some module needed replacing. Any help on what part it is and where it is located?

Blower resistor board.......Located in the heater box under the dash passenger side.

I second a blower motor resistor. Should be easy to replace.

Do I just pull out the old board and put in the new? Do you need to disconnect any power or am I good to go with the key off?

Good to go with key off. Shoud be 2 (maybe three) screws holding the resistor board in place. Just unplug, remove, put in the new resistor, plug back in and turn on the key. Should have all the speeds then.

So am I replacing just the resistor on the board or the whole board?

The whole board. I think they run 40 bucks or so (retail) if I remember....

Hookmaster-

Let us know how the repair works out for you, I have to do this to my GMC Sierra as well but unfortunately its not at the top of my list priority wise so I've been putting it off.

Interesting, my 2003 Silverado has the same issue. Please do share if this is the cure.

Thanks.

You still haven't done that.

The reason why high works is that it bypasses all the resistors to allow the full 12 volts to reach the blower. Likely the resistor that controls the next speed down from high has gone bad since all the other lower speeds use that resistor the regulate the voltage to the blower.

I'm going to try and get the part tonight and put it in before the cold weather. I think I may have lost the #1 fan setting a while ago. I checked it with a small strip of napkin and the #1 setting moved no air. As of Saturday, I turn the fan speed setting from 0-4 and nothing happens. Going to 5 (high) I hear a click and the fan comes blasting on. I also hear a some intermittent clicks in the back of the cab (crew cab). Does this have something to do with the flow through cabin ventilation?

The blower resistor board was the fix. The part # for my 2004 Silverado Crew Cab was 89019088. This was for a bench seat, not the floor console model. It's best to have the VIN# to make sure you get the right part. It was held on by two hex nut screws. It should have taken 30 minutes but it took me 1 hour since the screw above the hump for the shroud was a little tricky to put back in. I now have air movement on setting #1 which I didn't have before. I also noticed that on long freeway trips I needed to put the fan on #3 instead of #2 last fall. So it gave some indication it was failing before it went belly up. The part cost $53.99 with the tax so I probably saved $50-$100 in labor.

I told my daughter I was going to post on Fishing MN about the issue and I would have the fix in 1 day or less. Well it took less than 25 minutes!!! Of all the non-fishing advice on this website, the car/truck stuff is some of the most valuable since the non-mechanics can fix stuff but we don't know where to start. Thanks to all who responded.

Glad to hear its fixed!!

We have a good bunch of experienced automotive people here. I'm sure they would agree that it is there/our pleasure to help!!

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
