A/C and Heat Question.

Hi guys,

Up until yesterday the air conditioner in the car was fine. I went to turn it on and it wasn't working at all/little air coming out of the vents. The only time you could really feel the air coming out was at high speed on the highway. I then tried the heat and same thing, no heat except for when driving fast....

Do you think it could be a fan that's broken? And idea's on what it could be? Cost?

Thanks

Definitely sounds like the blower fan isnt turning on. I'm guessing there is probably some sort of resistor for the blower motor, located somewhere near the blower motor that could be blown.

You can probably a replacement motor and/or resistor from one of the online parts websites. Motor is probably a couple hundred bucks, resistor is probably 10-15 bucks.

Check out an E9x specific website like e90post other people have probably had similar problems.
