    Blower motor, Speed Controller.........?

    [FONT=verdana]For the past week when the ACC is in the LO (MAX) mode and all of the bars are showing on the screen the blower seems to be blowing at about half of that.[/FONT]

    [FONT=verdana]In fact no matter what setting I have it on , it just seems to not be moving as much air. (Used the LO (MAX) as an example) [/FONT]

    [FONT=verdana]Ran the Fault Code test and have a normal 0 on the left.[/FONT]
    [FONT=verdana]Interior filter was changed 6 months ago.[/FONT]

    [FONT=verdana]Reading through other threads I'm assuming it could be one of three things? Motor (brushes?), ACC Unit or HVAC Fan Speed Controller?[/FONT]

    [FONT=verdana]Any tips on narrowing it down or are there other possibilities?[/FONT]

    [FONT=verdana]Thanks in advance[/FONT]

    Well.......now it's on to the Fan Speed Controller as the new motor is doing the same thing. Spare motor to the garage. :-)

    Fan Speed Controller replaced, problem solved. Sensor not the easiest to get at. Recommend removing the gas pedal.
