1992 Volvo 940 heater/AC fan will no longer blow anything out

Recently my the fan on my 1992 Volvo 940 stopped blowing anything out. I have a knob on the control with levels 1-5 (1 is the lowest speed, 5 is the highest or strongest.) This is going to become a problem because with the winter months upon us, the defroster does not work now!
Any suggestions on how to fix this? Could it be a fuse? A connection? A fan motor?
How can I fix it myself? I get a lot of satisfaction out of fixing my own auto problems.... Thanks, Mark.

Could be a fuse they are located behind the ash tray. could be the fan motor you can test this by finding the connection for the fan motor and connecting a positive and negative wire to the positive and negative on the connector. it could also be a relay or loose or bad connector . start at the fuses check all of them. then check to see if your fan works then check all your connections if that is not it try to see if any of your relays look burned. im not sure whicjh one controls the fan controls. good luck if you need more help or specifics i will look into it more i have a friend with one of these vehicles that i can look at.

Heater fan resistor location on a volvo 940 no AC

It should be next to or behind the blower motor, which should be behind or below your glove box.

Good luck!

1999 Mercury Mountaineer, heater/AC fan no longer blowing

I would check the fan first disconnect the electrical connectors on it and use a pair of home made jumper cables and run it from the battery. If it works move unto relay if it doesn't you've found the culprit.
Next check relay in the fuse box. Coolant tempertant switch(CTS) aka thermal switch and its circuit. CTS is usually located in the water jacket by the t-stat.

2008 saturn vue when ac or heater is on the fan blows hard then completly shuts off then comes back on on low then blows hard again all without touching the knob

You have a problem with the heater blower speed controller, they act this way just before they stop working completely.
