Question Rear AC on 2005 pilot, new resistor didn't fix it.

Hello all, I joined this forum to search for help on little things I may be able to fix myself instead of taking it to the dealer. I have a 2005 pilot exl and the rear ac hasn't worked for over a year now. I searched in the forums and saw about the new resistor being the possible issue. I cleaned the screen and went out and bought a new resistor but it wasn't the problem. The new one didn't work and I wanted to know if there was anything else I could look into that could be causing it not to work. I hand turn the hamster wheel and it starts turning and the ac starts working. Any ideas on what it could be? Thanks for any and all input.

Could be a bad motor.

Did you try to fix the transistor module,m or replace the whole transistor module?

Did you run the diagnostics from the AC control panel?

There's many threads about the 'transistor'. Those threads should contain more help. Being from Houston, you may have a worn out fan motor, as suggested. You can unplug the fan and wire it straight to 12 volts to check it. Tap it with a small hammer while it's running to see if it stutters. The cover may come off to reveal the worn brushes.

Hondas with resistors for the fan speed are really old school.

Some years of the Pilot just used a resistor, others used a combination resistor + transistor in the same replaceable module.

Nope.

I have a first year, second month Pilot and original Electrical Manual.

They use a transistor module.

Thought I saw wiring diagrams the other night that had it both ways.

/shrug. Not the first time I've been wrong.
