Default Intermittent AC blower problem

Hi Board,

The AC blower on my 04 will intermittently not work if the car is started

with the switch on, but will eventually come on. The problem has progressed

the last few days to the point that it stops during operation. In searching the

board it appears it could be the blower motor itself or the switch.

Any suggestions on which to start with? Thanks Royleroyleroy

So, can i assume that since the blower does work intermittently on all speeds,

it's not the resistor on switch? I'm tempted to just replace the motor, as it

doesn't seem like a big project. What sayeth the board?

Have you checked the wire connectors going to the blower?

I haven't. Thanks, will check both. I do know that on lower speeds the output is very low compared to my other 2005 PT.

an update, as I hate it when someone asks for and gets good advice, then

can't be bothered to inform those who helped. I installed a blower motor

from Amazon, which seemed to do the trick. The old one seemed to have

quite a bit of drag when turned by hand. The new one definitely has more

output. Thanks for the help
