Check the wire connector located under the dash on the passenger side. a poor design, it can get kicked by a passengers foot. my blower got fixed by just wiggling it a few times!

You should have (assuming my diagrams correct) a black and red wire, a black and green wire and black and grey going into heater motor( resistor built in motor so probably is this at fault) and should have a 12 v feed at one of these three depending upon speed position. hope this helps.

Why wont my heat in my1997 ford f150 work

check coolant level and temperature of the heater hoses after the engine is at operating temp. the heater hoses should be the same temperature if not then the heater core is plugged and needs replacing. if the hoses feel the same temperature but not heat you may need to replace the thermostat. I am guessing the blower motor is functioning to blow air over the heater and into the cab.

Location for blower motor/heater/fan fuse?

Before you rip, check the 30A HEATER CIRCUIT BREAKER in the instrument panel fuse panel. The input is hot with the engine running. CB output connects directly to the heater blower motor. A cluster of heater blower motor resistors determines blower speed as selected by the blower switch in the heater control assembly. The switch setting is sent to the powertrain control module (PCM) which acts to turn the blower motor on at the selected speed.

Location for blower motor fuse on a 1994 ford escort hatch

this isnt the heatercore as it is producing heat and the blower is a fan. the issue could be there is a bad connection to the blower or that the fuse is no longer good.

Heater comes on when going over bump then it shut

Blower on High Only? This is the Blower (Fan) Motor Resistor. Was that/has been Replaced?
This should be located near the Blower Motor. Follow the wires from the Blower Motor BACK to the Resistor. Change out the Resisitor and before re-assembling back together - Check the operation.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

My Blower motor for my heater on a 99 ford escort is not working.Is it the motor or resister that is gone??the fuses look ok where is the resister located can you send a diagram

look in passenger foot well on blower case for 4 wire connector.

Behind right side of I/P, A/C-heater plenum

resister bad would still allow high speed. may be blower motor.

  • The blower motor does not operate/does not operate correctly
  • Open fuse.
  • Tripped circuit breaker.
  • Circuitry open/shorted.
  • Heater blower motor switch (18578).
  • Heater blower motor switch resistor (18591).
  • Blower motor relay.
  • Blower motor.

Blower motor

fuse under the dash and under the hood but if fuses are good you may just have a bad blower motor check the wires on the blower motor first for connection before replacing

You Feel the heat but it does not blow--
Check your Blower motor Ralay first if it is Clicking then check the Blower motor itself apply 12 volts to pos wire at blower motor if it does NOT come on Replace blower motor if it does work the Problem is at the Switch itself

Escort van 55 blower heater does not blow at all

I had this problem on my '98 Ford Escort ZX2.
It did not need a new blower but a $15 Blower Motor Resistor.  The wires and connectors rusted out.
