There should be a heater relay fuse under the hood.

Where is the blower motor relay located on a 2010 jeep liberty


on all speeds, is it dead sounding or only no air flow???
wow no symptoms posted only this goose chase deal.

use the scan tool yet? see all DTC errors.
2008 cars can report most cause of lost power etc,
not scanning, invites expensive gue$$ing.!!

HVAC 101: (
gdoes the motor have 12vdc on high? at connector to it>?
on all speed's (now that is a KEY FACT there)

  1. defeat air bag first or die , fiddling these parts.
  2. do the HVAC calibration yet? per FSM.
  3. scan it yet ,if not you will guess wrong. I promise,
  4. i have to stop my online page ,is missing the wiring sections.

calibrate damper:
Use this procedure to ensure that the A/C-heater control is correctly calibrated to the blend door actuator. If the calibration is not correct, the heating-A/C system may experience a condition where full heating or cooling capabilities cannot be obtained.

Many steps can not be done with out a real jeep scan system.
sorry, cant.

I have a 2000 Nissan Xterra and the 2 blower fuses keep blowing causing the the heat not to work. When I went to switch out the fuses the first time the motor and heat worked right away but only for a...


you have a problem with the motor circuit drawing more amperage than the fuse will allow. it could be the motor itself, or something that is keep the motor from turning freely. otherwise it's a wiring problem. i would suggest unplugging the motor, and then turning on the fan. hopefully, if there is some short to ground, which sounds unlikely, the fuse will blow. otherwise i suggest replacing the blower motor. good luck!

I turn the the fan on for the heating but the fan


Sounds like a seized up (bad bearings) blower motor. It may not pull enough current to blow the fuse at the lower fan settings but does at the high one. Something could also be jamming the blower fan in its air duct.

Most blower motors can be accessed under the hood. Replace the fuse then put the blower switch on one of the lower settings (don't blow the fuse). Get yourself a good sized screwdriver and hit the back of the blower motor with the screwdriver handle a couple of times.

Sometimes (unless the blower motor has totally seized up) you can get it to spin and this will tell you for sure you need a new blower. Other than that, you can get a spare blower motor, remove the connection wires from the old motor and hook them up to the new one to test before you go to the trouble of replacing the blower.

Hope this helps you out... -Dan

Where is the blower motor relay 89 dodge spirit


It's against the firewall under the drivers side of the dash. You'll need to remove the fuse panel and other parts to reach it. Disconnect the battery first in case you were to short something out.  f you're blower motor isn't working, before replacing, check for power through the system by checking for continuity or voltage with a multimeter. The AC/Heating system gets it's own power through the ignition switch seperately from other accessories and only passes power in the RUN position, so check for power there first. If you don't have power at the ignition switch, check the fusible link between the battery and firewall (There's a whole group of them about a foot away from the firewall on the left side). I found out that was the problem with my ventilation system after I'd already torn apart the dash.
If you have to replace the blower motor (make sure it is the blower motor first, because it's not a fun project), you'll have to remove the glovebox. You'll then have to remove the fan enclosure by removing several bolts. You'll probably have to replace the gasket as well, as the one in my car fell apart once the enclosure was removed. You'll then have to remove the fan by decompressing a spring clip and removing from the center spindle. You can then remove the fan. In my car, there wasn't a connector at the blower motor, so you'd have to desolder or cut the wires. If you do cut the wires, you'll have to resolder the new blower motor in and put heatshrink over the solder joints (adhesive preferably), as I don't believe it is advised to use crimps due to the amount of current. Ultimately there'll be soldering involved, most likely in a cramped space, so be careful of solder drips. If the fusible link is blown, check the connection at the ignition switch. Mine melted pretty severely, which is probably what blew the fusible link. If you change the fusible link, put a fuse holder in it's place. If you have to replace the ignition switch connector as well, solder everything... no crimps.

Heating broke


Was the blower making strange noises before it quit? If not, does the blower work at all? perhaps only on one speed? If it only works on one speed, look for the resistor that goes with the blower motor. I assume it will be near the blower itself, but can't tell you where. An auto parts store can probably tell you. If the blower was noisy and suddenly quit, you will likely need to replace the blower motor.

1998 Grand Cherokee blower not working


Check blower fuse, relay and power at blower motor harness terminal. Check for proper grounding at dashboard and body as well. Yo
good lucku can run a hot wire to the blower motor and touch it to the connector spade to check if blower itself is OK. There are other components in the system, but this is a good start! Don't forget...fuses blow because there is a problem elsewhere. If you replace one and it blows again, there is something else wrong!
