    Merry Christmas all Any of you have problems with the heater fan. I'm freezing my butt off. 2006 Chevy Silverado cab fan motor has been replaced, Wiring harness as well--worked for about a week and now I can't get the fan to even turn on again. Any help would be appreciated.

    You should have full time power at the motor and the motor grounds out through the resistor/heater controls.

    Long shot..... try wiggling the key.
    I've had it happen, especially when really cold, that the key wouldn't return to the "run" position fully from the "start" position, and the fan would not operate.

    Check the wires at the back side of the controls. I had a similar issue before and it ended up being a melted plug at the control panel. One of the pins in the plug had slid back some causing a bad connection and it melted that way.
