Water leaking in on pasenger side floor

Put new heater blower motor in ( got hot and melted wires among other things) After this the water would come in along the inside of the firewall. We opened up the drains to make sure it was working also applied silicone on exterior such as where window meets the cowling. Is there something else I should be looking for ?

It sounds like you may have pinched the 12 volt wire that supplies the blower motor with power, and the seal between the motor and housing is letting in water. Try removing the blower motor and look for the pinched wire where it may be short circuited, and reseal the motor to the housing with a new gasket or silicone sealer.

I have a 97 Ford Expedition the heater motor is blowing the thermostat checks out good what is my next step to find out why I'm not getting any heat

A couple of things to check. your temp selector lever, knob from cold to hot. make sure it is moving the selector and opening to let hot water into the core.. Check listen for vacuum leak and move the controls for defroster floor etc. and listen to see if they are actuating ..these are usually vacuum operated but some are cables that get stuck at the heater temp valve. Hope this helps mike

Heater runs but does not heat

If it is blowing air at different speeds inside the car, I think you are saying the blower works fine, but blows no heat.
If it is running different speeds but is not blowing inside the car, you probably have a plastic flap inside the heater assembly inside the car that is not opening, not allowing the air to come in.
That might likely be a vacuum issue, or maybe a mechanical one. (whatever is supposed to open the flap)

If the flap is working and you are getting different amounts of air inside the car according to the speed of the blower fan setting you have selected, go to the engine temperature.
Is the radiator getting hot?
Have you a temperature gauge to tell if the engine is hot?
If not, you will need to warm up the engine, and then determine if there is hot water in the radiator.
If you pull off the cap to see, it could blow up on your face, so you will need to find someone who can help you with this.
If the radiator is hot after about 10-15 minutes of the motor running, you are perhaps not getting hot water to the heater.
You would need to check the temperature control to see if it is working. This is often a mechanical switch located near the firewall of the Jeep under the hood. Usually it is the size of a small fist, and has a heater hose running into and out of it, and has a wire attached to the top.
It might have a wire to it that should move when you select hot or cold inside the jeep at the control panel. Sometimes the control wire will rust or break.. The heater hoses should be hot if the hot water is running through them.
If your radiator is low on coolant, often the heater inside the car will not work.

Heat & air conditioning blowers

No,your problem is the blower motor resistor that is either faulty or it has a bad connection.These resistors get hot and melt the pigtail.You can try and wiggle connection with the ignition and the fan switches on and see if it comes on. The resistor should be at lower right side of heater box near the floor on passemger side.You should see the pigtail going to it.

The blower motor stopped working, so I replaced the 30A heater fuse which was blown. Tried the blower again, and the fuse blows within a minute. Now when I try to replace the fuse with the battery...

disconnect the blower motor. if the fuse is ok then, the blower motor is bad. if the coolant leak is on the passenger floor, you may have a heater core leaking, although you may also smell a sweet odor from it.

Heater in my 2002 jeep wont get hot unless going down the road and I have water in the floor on the pasenger side.

Sounds like you have a leak at the heater core and lack of heat usually means low water level in radiator. When engine is cold ,add some radiator "stop leak" top up the radiator, start the jeep but leave the cap off until the water is hot and you are sure radiator is full. Then tighten cap and drive or idle for about half hour or more. When you can afford it change out the heater core.

Water under pasenger side carpet not from heater core

Find the drain for the A/C located under the hood, firewall, nearest the bottom of the firewall. It will be a black tube and if plugged, the condensation from use of the A/C (which also turns on when the defrost is used to evaporate moisture) will back up into the blower box and drain onto the floor. Long term effects include; rotted floor board, mildew, shorted blower motor and loss of effective defrosting, heating and cooling. Use a coat hanger or other long thin item to clear the drain and allow the water to drain. The system will be much more efficient. Let me know if you need anything else.

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.

Check the blower motor resistor module,it is on the passengers side by the blower motor.Make sure and check the connectors to.They get hot and will melt sometimes.You can get new connectors from the dealership if they are melted.Hope this helps.Good luck.
