#3 of 5 Re: Heater Fan Control Problem [root1115]
Jul 31, 2010 (2:22 pm)
Thanks for taking the time to post this. I have a 2000 Solara Convertible LE and had the same problem with my HVAC fan - high or nothing. I was able to remove the blower motor resistor without removing the panel under the glove compartment (I suppose that this could be different for the convertibles than the regular model but why would it be?)
For anyone reading this after I wrote it, the best picture I found of the area is this one.
Anyway, it was screwed in with two phillips-head screws (who's brilliant idea was that? A hex-head screw/bolt would have made so much more sense) which I was able to remove with a stubby screwdriver and a bit of swearing. My local dealership had a new resistor (part 87138-33060, "72F Resistor", in my case for the manual hvac system) for $25.18. I replaced the screws with hex-heads to make it easier in case I have to do it again (though since the first one lasted 11 years and ~210,000 miles, I can't imagine it happening again).
I ended up leaning (hard and long) on my right shoulder to get my right arm into the space. The shoulder is a bit sore but the fan operates on all speeds. Thanks again!

When I push the "button" for a/c, nothing happens. Dealer tells me they just don't change the switch,they change the entire board that the swich is on, which cost over 600 dollars plus 65 dollars labor. Does anyone have a better idea!! Neal
#5 of 5 Heat only works on MAX
Sep 27, 2012 (6:11 am)
I have a 2001 Solara V6 SLE w/ 255,000km - just recently, the heater is only producing hot air when the temperature is set to MAX.
Anything from 18degrees to 31.5degrees produces cold air.
Any help or ideas of where I should start troubleshooting would be great! thx.
