Question about 2000 Ford Windstar

2 Answers

Blower fan My blower fan just started blowing full speed on all settings. I replaced the resistor, but still no luck - what next should I look for? The switch itself? How would I go about checking/installling that? I have heat, and the fan blows - but not on the lower settings. Please advise.

    Can you explain how to check the switch? While in the vehicle or removed and if removed, how do I remove it?

    Just wanted to let you all know - my problem has been fixed. It was neither the resistor or the switch - but a wire that had rubbed bare was shorting out against the housing and causing my problem - just goes to show - there are problems other than "normal" that sometimes isn't always an easy fix. Thanks to all.

    No, I didn't do more than the resistor - my son found the problem today. Thanks.

Yes it may be the switch, it is easy to check, each speed will show continuity when switched, but only one at a time, if all show closed circuit then the switch is defective

    You will have to pull the AC/Heater control to access the switch, this is very involved, and to lengthy to go into here, if you are going to do this kind of work I suggest you buy a Ford Factory service manual set for the truck.

I want to know how I can trouble shoot fan blower problem get it behind me?


Your talking about the interior blower? If the first 3 settings don't work, you have to replace the blower resistor. The relay is a different story. Though the relay could be built in the resistor. I'm thinking this is not your case. The resistor controls the speeds of the blower, until it gets to high. Then the relay kicks in to give the blower full power. I would say replace the resistor. I good thing to remember is, If you get any speed from the blower, the resistor is bad. If you get nothing,check the fuse, replace it, if it blows again, replace the blower. If the fuse doesn't blow, then start looking at the controller and wires. This advice goes for all makes and models.

You will need to replace the blower motor speed control module/resistor, it is burned out. it is located next to the blower motor.

My car is RAV4 toyota blow fan not working on 1,2,3 but #4 working only I replace switch but same as before,Please would give what I do next. Thank you.


Sounds like you have a bad blower motor resistor (manual HVAC). The resistor is just that a set of resistors in serious that drop voltage to regulate fan speed. Speed one uses all the resistors to drop the voltage the most. Speed for doesn't use the resistors so full power can be used by the blower motor to make it work at full speed.

The resistor is typically located near the blower motor under the passenger side of the dash. and will have 4-5 wires going to it.

My heater has stopped working and ive checked the fuses and its not them what should i try next


Hi,
There is a blower motor resistor , located in the air duct coming from the blower assy. This will have 4/5 wires attached which determine the speed of the motor blower. This will determine the fan speeds depending on the resistor combinations selected. Sometimes the fastest blower speed will work because it has no resistance and gets full voltage.
You can also check the plug going into the fan assy , the plug may have reecieved a knock from a foot and become loose! A circuit tester will be a great help also . Good Luck

We have a 2002 villager, the fan only works on Hi setting, Checked the 20 Amp fuse in the panel to the left of the steering column, as well as the larger fuse in the engine compartment. Both are fine. Is...


The blower motor doesn't use a different fuse depending on the speed. The most common cause for your concern is bad blower motor resistors. The resistors lower the voltage to the blower motor so it doesn't turn at full speed when you have it set to fan speed 1. When the resistors blow out the only setting that works is full speed because it doesn't go through the resistor.

My 94 integra ls not blowing air. when i turn on the ac the compressor comes on but blower does not. i need a diagram of the ac/heater blower motor


Hello! Here is a test procedure to isolate the fault in the blower motor circuit. Make sure ignition key is off...Remove the glove box...
Located on top of the blower assembly box is a connector with the following wires; Blue, blue/white, blue/ yellow, and blue/black. The device that the plug was connected to is called the resistor pack. Two screws hold it in place. Remove the resistor pack and check it for open or burnt resistors. If it is defective purchase a new one. Average cost is $25. If the fan motor did not run in the high position then more testing is required. If the air conditioner dash light comes on when you select A/C that eliminates the A/C switch. Next set the fan speed to first position. Place your ohm meter on the X10 scale and measure between the blue wire to ground...set fan speed to next position; measure between blue/white to ground...set next position; measure between blue/yellow to ground. Set fan to high position; measure between blue/black to ground. All readings should be zero ohms (full meter deflection). If they are not then the fan speed selector switch needs to be replaced. If all readings are correct then replacing the resistor pack will solve your problem.

1998 GMC Sierra pickup truck cabin fan problem


Your blower moter is under your glovebox and very easy to replace.I dont think thats your ploblem.I would pull off the dash.It will snap right off without breaking anything.Then pull out the part that holds the selector switch for the fan speed.Then you unplug that switch.Clean the copper contacts.Plug it back in.If everything works again like it should and did in my truck then it is either that switch that is bad or the wiring harness.I would replace that switch.
