Blowers aren’t working
JA: What is the make/model/year of your car?
Customer: Vauxhall Astra 2007
JA: Are you fixing your Astra yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes. I have replaced the blower motor. Worked fine for a couple of months. Now the blower had stopped again. No setting (1-4) works. All fuses are fine.
JA: Have you checked the vehicle's manual yet?
Customer: Yes
JA: Is there anything else the Mechanic should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

You would need one to do some testing or get an auto electrician.

If you do get a multi meter and need further assistance just get back to me regards Gavin.

Thanks Gavin. I’ve taken the motor out and the plastic surrounding the positive wire into the resistor has melted.

I have seen that before have you got any terminal crimping pliers see image.

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
No, I haven’t. Should the plastic have been removed?

Replace the connection with Fully Insulated Blue Female Electrical connector see image.
