I have a 1997 ford crown victoria. The only way the heat works is if I run a wire from the heater blower to the negative battery post. So I wanted to know what part do I need that will work the heater...

if it was me i would check all of the ground going to the blower motor it maybe a bad wire inside the motor itself and i would also look for a good used one check this website out to see if you can fine a good salvage yard near you also give these websites a try to see if they maybe helpful to you and if all fails stop by your local library and get your hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for your car wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

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!

Heater blower only works on high speed

You probably have a bad resistor, the resistor is located underdash on the passenger side next to the blower motor, remove the wiring harness and screws to remove it and replace it with a new one. The resistor is responsible for blower motor speeds less than full. Hope this helps, let me know.

Need to know what fuse is for blower in 2000 ford mustang 6v

I don't know how hard it would be to pull out the blower switch and test it, but to make things easier, turn the ignition to run position, or you could start the engine if you prefer, go to the passenger side engine compartment, and a few inches to the right of the blower you will see a connector that has 5 wires going to it: 2-orange/black, a light green/white, a yellow/red and a red/orange. Unplug that connector, get a wire or a jumper and ground it good somewhere to some clean metal, or the battery negative, and then touch the jumper to corresponding orange/black prong on that connector. That is the high setting on the blower, and the blower should start at full speed. If you touch any other prongs, it will go through the resistor, and the fan will start at different speeds, so that's one way to test the resistor.
If the blower works, than your switch is defective.
If nothing happens, make sure the blower fuse is good, and with a test light or a voltmeter, make sure you have power at the blower. The blower has two wires going to it, an orange/black and a brown/orange. If there is voltage on the br/o wire, and the blower didn't come on with the previous test, than the blower is defective.

Heater only works when it wants to

could possibly be control head for heater/ac system. lots of gm vehicles have this problem.sounds like a loose connection, look under the dash on the right side near blower motor to check wires to blower motor
