Question about 1998 Acura Integra Type R
I am trying to detrmine if the fan switch or Blower is bad on my daughters 98 Acura Integra. Apparently the fan was working, stopped, she then turned it off and then back on. The fan started again and then stopped. I was thinking I could take out the fan switch and use a multimeter on it, but I was curious as to whether or not someone had a better way. Maybe the shotgun approach, change the fan switch, then the blower if that doesn't work. But changing the switch maybe harder than I invision.... Any suggestions?
You could unplug the blower motor and use test light/probe to make sure you have a power signal from the switch to the blower motor.If therse power then the blower motor is at fault.If no power at the fan use the lighter socket to get 12v to give the blower motor to guarantee its just a power supply issue.If blower works you will need to remove switch to check wether you have power going in and power coming out.If power in and nothing coming out then the switch is at fault.If memory serves me correctly the switch is the multi speed resistor all built in.If no power going to switch check fuse

There is a thing called a blower motor resistor that controls the fan on cars these days. they are usually in the air box. check with a dealer for your car. its easy to change.
