    Front AC Blower not working

    I have a 2006 Honda Odyssey. The front AC Blower is not working. I can see the AC display react to increasing or decreasing the blower speed, but nothing comes out. Rear AC Blower seems to be fine. I check around in the fuse boxes and everything looks ok. Is it most likely a AC Blower Motor or could it be something else? Thanks for the help.

    does it blow air when you max out the blower speed,,try a search on the topic

    I don't get anything blowing out of it. Saw a couple of other posts too. They all had mentioned that they had been able to get air out at full blast, I don't, so I thought that it could be something else.

    ASSuming you have an EX you will have to get out the voltmeter and trace the circuit out. IF you have an LX the resister pack is most likely blown.
    F56 or blower motor relay in under hood relay box, blower motor.

    I'm having this same exact problem. Front won't do anything, but the back works just fine.

    Mine is a 06 Honda Odyssey LX

    Any idea where I can get a replacement resister pack?

    I'll chime in on my experience with the resistor pack on a 2000 LX. My resistor was blown, and the fan WORKED at full speed only. So rather than through money at a possible non-needed part, do the work to trouble shoot the circuit. First with a VOM you can check the resistance of the pack. Mine, which was bad read open, so it was easy for me (don't forget my fan worked at full speed). I would pull the the pack and read the resistance, if that were good then I'd apply 12 volts directly to the blower motor, if it works then you go from there (trouble shoot the circuit). Lots of luck, Russ.

    On LX the resistor pack is bypassed when on high. Therefore if it does not work on high it is not the resistor pack.
    As above check F56 and the blower relay in the under hood fuse panel. Or possibly a bad motor. Get a voltmeter and trace it out.

    me too

    My 06 EX is experiencing the same thing. Anyone find out what it was? Where do I find the blower motor relay on the EX?

    Front air stopped blowing today in my 2006 Touring. Rear air is blowing, however now its hot air. Able to change temp and fan speed with no problems. Even tried the front defroster with no luck. Suggestions?

    Same problem on my 2007 Odyssey EX. I don't get cold air at all. The rear control the rear fan but no cold air. Front digital control appear to function but nothing blows or gets cold. Anybody find the problem?

    DIY- How to Fix, AC power transistor - Honda-Tech. Has procedures to check out the transistor under the dash. I have the same problem and my part checked bad.

    Honda wanted 112$ for the transistor for the a/c with auto mode. Picked up the thermal cut off form digikey for 60 cents. Just changed it out. Works great. This thermal cut off took a little bit of soldering. I ordered the part shown in this you tube video. The transistor is different in the 07 but the thermal cut off is the same part.

    if you short the thermistor as presented in some of the threads, make sure to re-install the entire assembly so the heat sink is seated in the duct. the heat issue is not trivial! without the airflow, you will melt the case, likely destroy the transistor, and may cause fire! I speak from experience!!! this fix works well though!

    Hi all - apparently this problem has shown up on my 2006 LX. Rear blower works fine but the front does nothing even at full power. I pulled the Resister pack and tested across pins 3-4(opposite side of the button on the connector). I got 1500 ohms so I assume that the resistor is ok. I got power at the 40 amp heater fuse under the hood as well. Does this say that the blower motor itself is bad? I saw a video for the earlier generation Ody and this did not seem too bad other than the location of the part but how much is the part typically? I assume this is a dealer only part?

    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks
