Question about 1994 Nissan Pathfinder

1 Answer

Heating and cooling fan won't turn on with switch.

I've tested the fan, it works, bought a new resistor, but the fan still doesn't come on.  What is the switch in the dash called so I can get a replacement and where do I replace it?

    Sorry to mention it, but I did check both fuses for the fan.  They were both good but I replaced them anyway, just in case. That wasn't it either.  Where is the switch, what is it called and is it behind the dash.  I'm thinking it's the switch.  It's the only thing left that I haven't been able to fix, check or replace.

You might want to check for a bad fuse. Some automobiles have a fuse for the fan.

My car over heats, when it gets hot and I shut it off, the fan comes on and stays on for about 30 sec. then goes off and doesn't come back on. Is their something wrong with my relay?


The fan switch could be faulty or worse case is you have combustion fumes being pushed into the cooling jacket. Yup blown headgasket. Take to a reputable shop and have them perform a block test.
The fan could also have an intermittent fault and not kick on all the time when the relay demands it on. Good luck!

Cooling fans won,t come on


1 fan is for cooling the motor and the other fan comes on when the ac is turned on or its very warm outside it 2 stage

Heating and cooling fan not working


sounds like a bad blower resistor.The switch runs a straight 12 volts to the motor in high,but runs through the resistor on the lower speeds.The resistor is located somewhere on the HVAC unit(it requires airflow to avoid premature burnout).

Question:If the 30 A. fuse on a 2002 focus dash blower motor is good,and the thermal resistor is replaced, then it must be a faulty speed switch?


Don't know where you got your info . The heater blower motor electrical B+ power comes from Fuse F 64 a 40 amp fuse . This goes right to the blower motor on the green with orange stripe wire , The black with red stripe wire goes to the switch for high speed . There is Splice 24 that ties into the black with red stripe wire. The splice 24 turns into a black with orange stripe wire . An this wire goes to the blower motor resistor . All the switch does is route the B+ voltage through the different resistors to ground .

Thermal resistor "usually" stops working is because of faulty fan speed switch ???? Totally not true , resistor assemblies fail because of the heat associated with dropping voltage across the resistors , That is why they put the resistor assembly in the air box . Air blows over to cool the resistors . The switch is nothing more then a way to direct different speeds to ground .

Rather then listening to other people ,why not learn the right way to test electrical circuits .

I have a 04 Chrysler sebring and the engine is over heating, the coolant container be bubbling, and the heat won't come on all of the sudden I just put a water pump on.


you might want to change the thermostat and make sure there is no air in the system,make sure all the air is properly bleed out of the cooling system.also make sure that the cooling fan at the rad is working properly.if this doesn`t correct this have a combustion gas test done on the cooling system.

A/c works great when fan is on high speed when


Could be as easy as a new blower motor switch or blower motor resistors.

Heater & cooling fan only works on high.Power locks don't work.


there is a resistor for the heating and cooling fan speed. this controls the amount of voltage to your fan, which controls the speed. usually when the fan only works on high it will bypass the resistor and use the full 12 volts for the high setting. your power locks might be part of this circuit. i would check the resistor first then check the locks. usually the resistor is behind the high low switch

2000 Olds Alero. Cooling/Heating fan stopped


The blower is on the right hand side under the dash. You are right in thinking the blower resistor is the problem. The resistor is in the heater box behind the blower. Only 2 bolts hold it in but the back one can be a challenge to remove. The bolt is 5.5 mm.

Check for power and ground with a test light at the resistor connector. You should have power on the colored wires in the various switch positions. The black one is ground.

2004 elantra heater control only operates at #4 setting


If # 4 is the highest fan setting it might be the resistor pack that controls the fan speeds.For each speed increase the fan switch takes a resistor out of the resistor loop The highest speed is a direct connection to the battery. The switch is usually located very close to the fan since it gets quite hot and needs to be cooled by the fan.It is also generaly accessible from under the hood,but not always.Sometimes it is under the dash Hope this helps.

I believe my heating/ac motor resistor is bad - fan doesn't work on high


Look behind the glove compartment door. Press the tabs holding it inward to let it drop out of the way.
I'm getting suspicious that the resitor block isn't to blame for these problems. May be the switch. The resistor block looks to be bullet-proof but it is a hard to test assembly.
