On ford vehicles the blower motor resistors are the most common problem when this happens.

    I replaced the blower motor resistor on my 1999 Expedition about 3 months ago. Haven't driven it a lot, but now that we have snow and cold weather, the fan is back to only working on high. Was it just a bad resistor or is there a more sinister issue?

Make sure the knob is actually turning the switch, these brake on Ford cars/trucks all the time. Check fuses, check blower motor relay,Check for power at blower motor, verify resistors are functioning properly, replace blower motor.

I have a 2000 Ford Explorer XLT with the 302 V8. The blower does not work at all in the front dash, however the blower in the center armrest for the rear seat passengers, blows cold and normal. On

Hi, the problem could be the motor, controller, or resistor. You will have to troubleshoot using a volt/ohmmeter. If you have a meter and are willing to troubleshoot, I can send a procedure.

Heater fan not operating

Most of the time when a heater blower quits working it is the blower switch that fails rather than the motor. Blower switch can be accessed in the dash panel.

Heater blower not working

You call it the blower motor, I assume you mean the interior Heater/AC blower motor. When the motor acts as you have described it is usually a problem in the motor itself like a short or rectifier.
