There are several reasons for a blower to stop working. Does it work on ANY speed? Does the AC compressor lamp or any of the vent control LEDs still work when using the AC controls? Do ANY of the speed for the blower work or are they all dead?

1st, you wanna check your fuses. There will be fuses in the underhood fusebox marked blower or heater fan, check and repalce as necessary. Also, if the earlier check for working LED bulbs on the AC control panel showed some or all lights dont ever turn on when engine is running, you may have problems with the control system.
if the fuses are good, now you need to test parts. there is a blower motor speed control aka blower resistor that frequently fails on most cars. It is the part that carries the current for all speeds of the blower and regulates speed when commanded. It has to absorb the excess energy to lower speeds and it tends to get very hot and burn out as a result. If it has failed, there will be power IN on one of its wires, and no power OUT on any others. If you have no multimeter or testlight to check things like this, Id recommend taking it to a certified mechanic.
If the control lamps all work that means controls have power, if the blower resistor has no power, fuses or blower relay are the most likely cause. if the blower resistor has power but still no fan, most likely your fan has failed. as a general rule, I replace fans and blower resistors as pairs. fans tend to last longer, but they also get more demanding with age (kinda like people) and that extra demand will burn out the newer resistor much faster than when the fan was newer. it can be alot of time and money to change a blower TWICE, so to be sure it wont fail again, test current, or simply replace the blower fan if it is determined a resistor has failed. (a good fan in theory shouldnt draw enough amperage to burn out a good resistor, EVER, so if the resistor burns, the fan is typically drawing too much power, and even though it works "fine", it will burn the next resistor in a short time as well.).

This is most likely an issue with your vapor evap system. As it gets worse you may also get jerking in the driveline from insufficient fuel flow which will damage the transmission, and you may hear the gas tank pop. I recommend getting it fixed by a mechanic, but if you can't and the gas tank is popping, you can get by for awhile by cutting the O-ring off of your gas cap, it's ghetto but i ran my Sable like that for over 3 months.

With a scanner or code reader. Most auto parts stores will scan the computer for free in hopes of selling you some parts.

Depends where the defect if. Most alarm /remote systems lock doors before the remote will activate the starter. They do splice into the car's system..do if the defect if further down line from the splice the problem will remain. Check your relays for the problem.

Disconnect the negative battery terminal for a few minutes. the door lock works on different frequency power signals supplied by one wire. With mixed frequencies stuff happens.

Relays don't usually stick on. Look at the controller. It can be scanned.

I will not answer this question, nor would I advise anyone else to do so, due the potential for criminal misuse by unscrupulous parties.Best advice would be to go through dealer for protection of yourself and the general public.

If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
Heater Housing
  • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
  • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.

you will need a 3/8'' drive breaker bar to pull back & hold the ''belt tensioner'' away & while doing so remove the serpentine belt. there is a 3/8'' square hole in the tensioner where you apply the bar. watch your fingers!

synthetic oil is a great product use it if you can afford it and the oil filter that your owners manual recommends is just fine. also the weight that your manual says to use is what you need to get as well. example synthetic 10w40 i like castrol

Can't tell you the number, but the fuses are usually labelled. If not, pull each one, one at a time to find the bad one. Cigar lighter fuses are usually 30 amp.

Although I am not familiar with your engine, I find using a pressure pump and gauge on the radiator filler neck allows for inspection of where a leak is coming from without running the engine and without having it hot. These test kits are often available as "loan a tool" sets from better parts stores. If you can't find any coolant leakage, do you see white smoke from the tail pipe (not just the usual moisture burn off from cold exhaust, but all the time). Could be a leaking head gasket.

Might be a misaligned or defective brake light switch.

It might be a defective clockspring in the steering column. This also may cause the cruise control to not work at all or intermittently.
