2012 Chevy Malibu Blower Fan

Asked by Oct 12, 2018 at 01:24 PM about the 2012 Chevrolet Malibu 2LT FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I own a 2012 Chevy Malibu, the Fan works periodically. When it doesn't work if I hit the bottom of the dashboard the fan will work again sometimes for a few days sometimes a day. I then punch the side again sometimes once sometimes many times, has anyone else had this issue. When I brought it in I was told the blower fan was fine. It also happened to be working at time, a day later same issue. Before I break my hand does anyone have similar problems

It's either an electrical short or a loose wire, or something caught at the blades that needs to be cleaned out.

Thank you


Just to add, sometimes the motor brushes can cause problems. The blower motor might go on or off with vibration or hitting a bump. Check voltage and ground at blower motor when problem is ongoing, if both good have to look at blower motor. Just my opinion.
