Valeo Heater Resistor 509894 - Known Vauxhall (Opel) Vectra Vehicle Faults Webinar

Learn everything you need to know about heater resistor issues in the Vectra C.

Faults of the Vectra C Heater Resistor

Discover What May Be Causing Air Conditioning or Heating Problems

Air conditioning and heating are critical for customer comfort, so any issues must be dealt with quickly. If you are dealing with issues related to the heater resistor in a Vauxhall Vectra, there are a few known faults in the Vectra C that you should know about. These issues can cause the blower motor not to work correctly and can cause other parts to fail if the problem is misdiagnosed. In this 6-minute free webinar, you will learn about these major faults and how to fix them to avoid costly mistakes. 

What Does a Heater Resistor Do?

The heater resistor plays an essential role in the air conditioning system. When it fails, it can cause problems with the blower motor, so the heater resistor is often blamed for blower problems. Still, heater resistors are often returned to Valeo and found to work perfectly, suggesting another culprit. So what else could cause the blower motor to malfunction? We’ll explore this question by focusing on two other ways the heater blower motor can fail on the Vectra C. 

Known Faults of the Vectra C

If you find that replacing the resistor doesn’t fix the problem, something else may be to blame. The design of the vehicle means two other faults often cause similar symptoms to a failed heater resistor. Thankfully, it’s easy to test for these other potential causes if you know what to look for. We’ll tell you where to find these components, specifically on the Vauxhall Vectra C, and show you how to identify signs of damage by looking at images of damaged parts. You’ll learn where to pay special attention and what to check for to avoid secondary warranty problems and unnecessary parts replacement.

Obtaining Parts and Installation Tips

If you do need to replace a part, you can easily find it thanks to our parts finder portal called Tech@ssist. You can search by model, VIN, or part reference number. We’ve included the model-specific parts numbers in this webinar, such as the heater resistor in the Vectra. You’ll also find technical service bulletins in the downloads section of our webinar about each of these potential culprits for heater blower problems. We also offer our free Valeo technical hotline, which you can call if you ever have any questions about installation.
