    I have a 95 chevy silverado and just before I was done plowing yesterday i noticed the heat stopped blowing but I did not turn it off. The off-1-2-3 knob wont work. will move but nothing happens same with cold air. It seems like the blowing fan is not working? park it, shut if off then go back a few hours later start it up to go get gas and it works again. This happened to anyone else? also one of my tires are squeeking i dont know which one but you can hear it well when driving but when I hit the brakes it goes away. Thanks in advance guys.

    The squeaking tire is more than likely your brakes. The wear indicator is rubbing against the rotor and everytime you step on the brakes the tension changes so the noise disappears. The fan could be a relay overheating if there is one for it otherwise it would probably be the switch.

    I would say it is either a loose wire (ground) or aan overheating relay
    If that is the only elictrical problem then it wont be too bad
    If you can adjust the squeek by applying or removing brake pressure it is either the squeeler in your brake pad or something in brake pad.

    I would check the fuse first. If that is not the problem check for 12 volts at the blower motor and make sure the ground is good.

    I had this problem in my 97 GMC pull off the dash and knobs and you'll see that the relay is probably fried (melted in my case) back there, i think the part was $9.00 and it took about 30 minutes to pull apart the dash and install and put back together. The guys at the chevy shop knew exactly what it was when I called on the phone, he said it happens quite often.
