1998 Ford Ranger super cab heater fan problem

I have a 1998 ford ranger 4.0l that has intermittent heater/ac fan problems. Seems that fan will not come on in any position (low , med, hi) and then it just comes on. Sometimes the fan comes on when the vehicle door is slammed shut. Where is the problem?


thanks

    I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY RANGER. TRYED CHANGINE FAN SWITCH BUT STILL THE SAME. USUALY CAN GET IT TO START WORKING BY SHUTING OFF ENGINE AND RESTARTING BUT HAVE ALSO NOTICED THAT IF I TILT THE STEERING WHEEL DOWN I LOSE TURN SIGNALS. HAS TO BE A WIRING PROBLEM UNDER THE DASH.

Check the resistor block. It is located under the hood on the passenger side firewall under the fan motor. It has two small screws holding it in place with a wiring plug attached. Clean out corrosion to restore good electrical connections. If cleaning does not restore operation a new resistor block will be required. Weatherproof the outside of the wiring plug to prevent further corrosion and reassemble.

Why does my heater in my 2000 ford ranger only work on the high setting?


I assume that you are talking about the heater fan?

Your heater FAN has at least 3 settings, and for our purposes we will assume low,med and high

Low and medium run through a resistor High is wired direct
Either your resistor is bad or your fan is
I know it seems wrong that the fan could be shot but it could be pulling so many amps that it won't work in any other mode than high
I just had this happen on one of my trucks
Start with the fan

Possible solution is to check the fan speed switch. These go bad and won't change the speed/ or function in the lower speeds.
