Some H3 Hummers were recalled for that, but it was not expanded to us.

If you are curious about any recalls for your vehicle, go here: https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls and enter your VIN.

That is a very helpful URL , but be aware it only lists unrepaired recalls.

checked my VIN against NHTSA and GM and apparently this does not apply to sons.

You'd think that, if they're issuing a recall do to a bad part, that they'd issue the recall for all of the vehicles that have that part. I've had this problem on both of my Solstices.

I had the same issue with my 4Runner. There's a really crappy vacuum switching valve on the 4.7L conveniently located under the intake manifold ($$$) that likes to go bad. They recalled the Tundra and Land Cruiser, but not the 4Runner that uses the same engine.

I wound up getting a bypass module rather than tearing the top of the motor apart. That manifold is not simple to remove.

Calling @TomatoSoup pics if you do this repair.

Someone on FB does stated that it has something to do with always having the fan on high?

The consensus is if you stay at 1,2 or 3 but NOT 4 fan speed you are fine. Apparently if you run the HVAC fan on high for an extended period of time you risk the meltdown. I don't use high ever

Mine did not melt there, but at the connector under the BCM. And it melted there when running the blower on high for an extended period of time (driving top down after sunset on a chilly evening and my better half was cold.)

I remember reading about this issue in a thread back in 2015. After reading it i had my solstice taken to my local G.M.Dealership & had the blower motor resistor & the connector harness changed.
They installed resistor oem part was 10397098 .
They installed harness oem part number 25949869 .
So far so good.
