Go to any auto parts store and buy a heavy duty wire. this should fix the problem. because the blower motor, is pulling to much power when its on. the best way is to put a fuse in the line between the battery and toggle switch. this way if it shorts out, it will blow the fuse try a 20 amp fuse if this is not enough. go to a 30 amp. Good-day !

I have a 95 blazerr, the blower motor stopped working, ive put in two toggle switch but they both quit working


A toggle switch will only work on a fresh cable, which is wired directly to the alternator or the battery. If you put a toggle switch on the existing electric fan wire, you will not be able to turn it on as long as the engine management does not send you current.

Replaced Blower Motor and Resistor.AC works but the Blower Motor relay Keeps melting.


So you need a repair shop or dealer to do the
required testing to find & resolve ALL wiring
& electrical problems

You do not want a guess from an internet site
Doesn't work that way

Need wiring diagrams,lots of your time to explain the
issues & some detailed & possibly lengthy & for you,costly
labor time, to just find the main issue

Mazda tribute cooling fan


sounds like the motor itself could be burnt out and usually when that happens u have to replace the motor itself....i actually had the fan stop working in a Taurus one time and i hot wired a wire from the fan motor to the battery and another wire to the "fan" on the fuse box (at the driver side) straight into a toggle switch i made into the dash by the steering column....it bypassed the relay and once i hit that toggle switch i would turn the fan on and off anytime i wanted to....if this is something u may try to do then it would save u alot of money and time with ur project....im not saying it would be successful in ur situation but i worked for mine....the only thing is, the toggle is ran off the battery and once u shut ur car off u always wanna make sure the toggle switch is off or it will run ur battery down....hope this helps and good luck

What does the fault code 0483 mean for a 2005 dodge ram 3500?


computer confused by cooling fan voltage/current level. Is the fan working? If yes, may have a short. If no, try hotwiring to battery to see if it's good. If fan works by hotwire, suspect relay is bad. Check all wiring before buying any parts. Relay does not click in until engine is hot. Let me know if you have more questions.

My hot wire for my blower motor came out of the fuse box (actually looks like the **** melted ) is there a way to run a seperate switch for my blower motor or is it hard to replace the fuse box oh my car...


If you don't want to go to the bother of changing the fuse box then you can run a power wire direct from the battery to a switch inside the car and hook the blower motor to the other side. It will always be live so you will have to remember to turn it off when you turn the car off. Also make sure you put an in-line fuse between the switch and the blower motor. Make sure that when you feed the wire through the firewall that it can't connect with metal or it will short out. Put the wire through one of the rubber plugs that are already there. Hope this helps.

Im trying to troubleshoot a non-funtioning blower


To test the blower motor run a jumper wire from the hot side directly to the hot terminal on the battery. If the motor is in good condition it should come on. If it comes on that may indicate a bad resistor pack. Since the resistor is an electrical part which is self-contained would probably be easier to change than to test. You should do the resistor pack first (before the switch) because it is the easier of the two to change out. If replacing the resistor pack does not fix the problem then you will need to replace the switch.

Blower motor not always working


when wired to the battery it's getting full power.
so if the switch is set to anything but max it won't get full power. does it work on max?
does the fan stop and start over bumps? will it come on if you wiggle the wires? check those.
if there are no loose wires and the fan is not jammed in the heater box try a new motor.
