Blower Motor

Hi guys, this is my first post and I have got lots of questions. the first one I am going to hit is my blower motor is not working. I have a '67 camaro that is basically a frankenstein. It has a '69 dash and I'm not sure what I'm looking at but all I know is that I don't have a defroster and I'm going to need one. Can anybody tell me what color wires I need to power to start troubleshooting this system? Thanks! I will have more questions soon I'm sure, I just started this project.

Re: Blower Motor

Welcome to Team Camaro Jason!

Do you know if the car had factory AC or not? If no AC, there is a single orange wire (12 gage or 14 gage) running across the firewall to the blower motor, which is under the passenger side fender. AC cars have the blower in the same place, and the same wire color, but the wire routing is a little different. The orange wire should show approx 12V when the key is on and the fan switch is in the all the way on position.

I don't know that I have seen a 69 dash in a 67. Maybe someone hung a Nova dash in it? Does it have two holes on the passenger side to secure the 69 Camaro instrument panel? Does the car have a 67 VIN in the driver front doorjamb, on with rosette rivets? Round hole to mount the wiper motor?

Re: Blower Motor

Sorry guys, I'm used to getting an email when people reply to my forum post, I thought nobody loved me!

It is very possible it is a Nova dash, I really don't know, I just know it isn't a 67 camaro dash from the pictures I have seen of others and the vertical AC controller its got. It has no center console, a center ashtray with cig lighter, and the instrument cluster has been cut out with a saw and replaced with a covan dash. I will post some pictures in a minute. I have heard alot of other people mention that orange wire and I can't seem to find it. It did have factory air, but the air box has been replaced with a home dryer vent to cover it (yes it looks as bad as it sounds) and the resistor pack was mounted (dropped in a hole) on the top of it. I will just have to post some pics when my wife gets back with the camera today. Anyways, it's getting cold out and I need my heater working and I don't want to have to pull of my fender and change my blower motor unless I have too. Thanks guys!

PS. do any of you know how to make this forum send you emails when you get a reply? thanks!

Re: Blower Motor

I just looked at a pic of a 68 Nova dash, I'm pretty sure thats what they put in it. What the [email protected]#% were they thinking?

Re: Blower Motor

ok, so I narrowed it down to the blower relay, it was a solid hunk of rust. I ordered a new one from Autozone (it was only $6.99!). Hopefully this will fix it permanently.

Re: Blower Motor

I installed the new relay, now the blower motor works only at full blast and only if I it on max AC. The controls don't really seem to do anything else. I'm pretty much lost at this point.
