DESCRIPTION

Heating & Air Conditioning
Fig. 191: Rear Blower

The rear blower motor (1) is a 12-volt, direct current (DC) motor mounted within a plastic housing with an integral wire connector (4) and a squirrel cage-type blower wheel (3) that is secured to the blower motor shaft.

Three integral mounting tabs (2) and a lock tab (5) secure the blower motor to the inboard side of the rear heater-A/C housing.

The rear blower motor can be accessed for service without removing the rear heater-A/C housing.

OPERATION

The rear blower motor is used to control the velocity of air moving through the rear heater-A/C housing by spinning the blower wheel within the heater-A/C housing at the selected speed.

The rear blower motor will only operate when the ignition switch is in ON and the rear blower motor switch located in the front accessory switch panel is ON. The rear blower motor receives a battery feed through the totally integrated power module (TIPM), whenever the ignition switch is in ON.

The rear blower motor and blower wheel are factory balanced and cannot be adjusted or repaired and must be replaced as an assembly if inoperative or damaged.
