Default Blower problems

If anyone could help, I would appreciate it big time. I thought my '06 nox blower had failed so I replaced it. I had the same result with the new blower.... No power. So I replaced the resistor and still nothing. I decided to check the voltage at the switch. The meter read 6 volts for all speeds and at the blower the voltage read the same also. Why doesn't the blower work at all? What do I test next? Is the visit to the dealer the next step? I'd appreciate any feedback, thanks.

I would check the wiring harness plug ins to make sure they do not need to be replaces..

I have a 2005 2500hd work truck that the blower stopped working. The resistor and connectors needed to be replaced.

Check for a voltage lost on the harness. Check also if you have a ground on the blower.

All fixed now! It happened to be a burnt wire in the harness behind the drivers side trim. Glad to have heat again, yay!

I would suggest that you go check the blower resistor first.

Sorry it took so long to get back with the solution - you were right it was the resistor
