Brand new blower motor is frustratingly weak!!!
Hey guys, new to the G6 Owners Club and I was looking for some help. Sorry if this was already covered in another thread but I couldn't find it anywhere, here or on Google. I have an 05' G6 in which the blower motor and blower motor resistor went out on. I first lost blower levels 1, 2, and 3 but level 4 worked just fine. Then I started hearing squeeking and squeeling from the blower motor itself which turned into a nasty grinding noise. I replaced both blower motor and resistor a few days later but the new motor I put in just doesn't have any force behind it and barely defogs my windshield. The old motor put out air like a jet turbine and i'm looking to restore that kind of power to it. I know there isn't anything blocking the airflow and the actuator door works just fine supplying air where I want it to. My first impression was that the motor just wasn't as powerful but I can't imagine ANYONE being satisfied with this kind of air output and if this is how it was intended to work then these motors should be pulled from the market. The only solution I have been able to come up with is that the resistor is cutting too much power to the motor (which doesn't seem likely since even level 4, which iv'e read is a direct 12v supply to the motor, is frustratingly weak). I did find one case of someone saying the wiring harness in their blower was manufactured backwards causing the motor to spin the wrong direction but it was a different make and model car completely. Does it seem likely that this could be the problem? Has anyone else run into this problem? The old blower was the original motor since I had to cut it out of the dash and the new motor is a Factory Air by 4 Seasons i believe the part# was 75777. I'm not sure of the resistor but I can look it up if need be. THANKS!!!!
