Hvac blower motor not working

1997 ford explorer hvac blower motor not working

  • AndyK9 Apr 19, 2009

    I have 1997 XLT with the same problem. AC/Heat worked (i.e. blower on) and then stopped working at the first 2 speeds...eventually, all speeds stopped (blower doesn't come on anymore). The rear consol works fine. There were a few days that the blower would come on if the switch was left on and I would hit a big bump in the road. (promted me to think there was a loose conection or faulty relay). I haven't found the blower motor resistor most blogs mention. Feel free to give me a clue where to find the darn thing or if it could something else....

2006 ford expolrer fan keep running when heat is off

Could be one of blower motor relays contacts stuck closed . There are two blower motor relays 1 & 2 . One is located in the under hood fuse/relay box .
Or if your explore has automatic HVAC , it could be the front blower motor speed controller , this have been known to do this .
Which HVAC does your explorer have , manual or electronic automatic control.

Im having a problem finding the right resistor at the parts store. They all say for a 1995 explorer but it doesnt work with my female plug. Any suggestions?

Looks like the automatic climate control uses a five pin blower motor resistor or controller. I would guess that the parts store has supplied you with a three or four pin that is for the manual HVAC.

The auto HVAC blower control module looks like a dealer part only. I show a part number 19E624 and it look like it retails for about $250. airjer995_35.jpg

2003 explorer blower motor output weak on all settings

Check for airflow restrictions and proper HVAC door operation. If all is well, compare blower motor current to specifications and replace motor if necessary. Also, make sure that blower is receiving proper voltage from controls.

2003 Ford Explorer Fan Blower Motor

Jeff, If I understand you correctly you say your blower motor only works on high? check your blower motor resistor, located next to blower motor. The resistor makes the other speeds availiable, high bypasses the resistor, let me know if that fixes you up
