God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

93 325i blower motor not working

Hello guys so I've got a 93 325i I just purchased with a blown headgasket so I had the head rebuilt and got the engine running good again now I have the issue of no blower motor and I figured before I dig in I'd put something up here and see if anyone else is having the same issue. Just a little background I'm a veteran mechanic GM CERTIFIED and Ford certified almost master of both very fond and lightly certified in Subaru but this is the first German I've ever had the "pleasure" of working on I think it will be a great car in the end. Another side note the drivers door latch won't catch any suggestions?

Holy cow! I have the exact same problem (on my 93 325i)! Is yours intermittent? Because sometimes my blower motor works, and sometimes it doesn't. But now, it just started Randomly working when I didn't do anything.

Your problem sounds exactly like mine, just mine works sometimes and doesn't others.

Check the resistor block that feeds the blower motor...they are known to blow.

Also check the blower motor has not seized...can be released with some lubrication....a seized motor will blow the resistor block.
