In your car’s HVAC system, the heater core is what creates hot air to warm up the interior during cool weather. The air conditioner and its varied parts cools the air during the summer. The blower motor is what pushes the conditioned (heated or cooled) air out of the dash and into the cabin of the vehicle. Depending on the make and model of your vehicle, you may have one, two or even three blower motors, each with their own blower motor switch.
Essentially, the blower motor switch allows you to control the airflow within your vehicle. It lets you set the fan to off, low, medium or high (or a number of other speeds depending on the system in question). Over time and through normal wear and tear, the contacts inside the switch will wear out and it will fail, requiring a new blower motor switch.
Without a functional blower motor switch, you’ll be unable to control the fan and fan speed for your car’s HVAC system. That could mean anything from being uncomfortable, to being dangerously overheated or chilled depending on the weather conditions. If you suspect your blower motor switch is not working properly, have its operation checked by one of our expert mechanics.
Although a failed blower motor switch will not prevent you from driving, it is important to be comfortable in your car and have clear, unfogged windows. Have the problem inspected and repaired as soon as possible.
