Default I'm having HVAC fan motor issues - intermittent on my 2016 C7

I'm looking for some quick help... My AC fan motor is started to work intermittently. It's stop working Today for about 15 minutes after I got an oil change. It's started on it's own driving. It work until I turned the car off. I went to the dealer to make a appointment and It'd start up again... Crazy... I went out again to get a carryout and I hit a Speed Bump and It's started immediately. I think there a loose connector or connecting of the pigtail. Has anyone had the same issue? Where is the fan blower connection ( Plug / pigtail) location on the C7? Any How do Videos?

I looking for some help on this, it was 100 degrees Today!

Hey there- I had the same problem today with my 2015. No air coming out of the vents at all. Tried everything, and can't get it to work.

Update: I took the panel under the glove-box and gain access to several connectors and harnesses. I believe one of them was the fan blower connector. I push, pull and push on them and re attached the panel. I'm been driving around running some errands with stops and starting. It's appears the issue has been resolved. Fingers crossed!

Thanks for the encouragement John- I did the same thing, and it worked!
Only took 2 minutes and saved a trip at the dealership and the $100 deductible for my extended warranty.


Use a tool like this to remove the 2 plastic retainers for the plastic panel under the glove box

this silver box houses the blower motor

press down on the clip while pulling out the plug

here's what the plug looks like- check for any damage before re-connecting

This has been happening to me too, simply pulling down on the housing cover without even removing it fully and the fan will start again.

When mine was having issues, disconnecting / reconnecting the bluetooth fixed it. Seemed strange when someone told me to try it, but I guess the fan speeds slow down when you get phone calls etc.

It worked for a while, but then it totally died. 4 days of driving in it with the *** roof!. Utah, Vegas, Death Valley.... It was 114+ in Death Valley!
