Hello all - newbie here.
Just did a fairly thorough search through all of the blower motor related issues within the Maxima/i30/i35 forum and there is a lot of talk about the resistor and amplifier, yet no one has mentioned the thermal transmitter (ECTS - coolant temp sensor).
So, here's my deal - my '96 i30t blower motor quit. Took the motor out, tested it and it runs out of the car. So, I followed the self-diagnostic procedures laid out within the factory service manual and I get the '23' code - thermal transmitter.
Here's my question - can a malfunctioning ECTS truly cause my blower motor to not function at all, on any speed? I've read that if it's a resistor issue, the blower motor will generally fail to full speed, not just quit working. Any help would be appreciated!
