Heater keeps blowing a fuse

The heater works fine, except when I switch the control dial round to the windscreen. Each time I do this it blows the fuse.

Is this a common problem and does anyone know what the answer is?

Check to see if the motor for the air distribution door to the windshield is shorted.

Heat does not blow onto windscreen but blows through other vents - whats wrong

What make an model an year vehicle do you have ? The air blows out of the floor vents an center vents but not defrost ? Possible mode actuator , stuck mode door ! There is a door inside the heater / A/C assembly that directs the air to the desired position . These doors can be moved by a vacuum operated actuator or an electric motor . Sometimes thing's put on the dash end up inside the heater box , fall through defroster vent ! Pens , pencils etc.. Depends on the make vehicle an system , manual , or automatic climate control . Some of the newer vehicles the HVAC system as it is called , the control panel is a electronic control module an can store DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes !

Alero fuse 46 keeps blowing

I have seen this before were the 46 fuse keeps blowing and it is usually after somone has had the radio and heater control out. There should be 2 wire harnesses that plug into the back of the heater control but the 1 will fit the extra plug on the back of the radio and the customer had the heater harness pluged into the radio. Radio worked fine but the rear defogger and a few other heater controls did not and it would blow the 46 fuse as soon as the key is turned on,.

My front and rear windscreen wipers and my fan for my heater are not working. Do you know what is causing this? The indicators and lights are fine.

Generally when two or more electrical features die at the same time a common element, such as a shared fuse, is at fault. Bear in mind that the fuse is there to protect, so when it goes something on the circuit is bad and the fuse will just keep blowing out until the bad component is fixed or removed from the circuit. So find the fuse, get some proper replacements, then install a new fuse making sure that all features on the fuse's circuit are turned off. Turn them on one at a time, when the fuse blows again you now know where your problem lies. You can replace that feature or just make a mental note to not use it anymore. Of course when you let someone else drive your car it will always come back with that fuse burnt out, a guy named Murphy wrote that law.

Heater in ford ka only blowing cold air

Hi if the car is not overheating then it will be the heater control unit, this is located just under the front windscreen when the bonnet is open look at the back and you will see 2 pipes going in and going back out of the bulkhead, these go all the time copy and paste this link into your browser

Check the thermostat aswell, and ensure the fan is working on the radiator , most likely though will be that part. very common
