Question about 2002 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Blower motor relay

I have a ford tarus ses 2002, I had the blower motor fixed once, but somehow water leaked into it and it blew out again. I do not have the book on it, so I need to know where the relay is on the passenger side?
Is this a problem that all tarures have?
I need to figure out how to fix the problem. My blower doesn't work at all, but I can hear the switch click but only works in high setting.
Hope you can help me.
I need help please.

    Yes... Yes they do have known problems....

    Water into the blend motor actuator = dead actuator...

    You may need to replace the Rain Cap to prevent this happening again....

    I have the same problem. Awhile back the blower quit altogether. I had it fixed & the mechanic told me there's a leak in the cold air intake that not only messes up the blower but also causes water to pool on passenger floor board whenever it rains. I only have 2 settings that work - high & off.

    What is the Rain Cap?

It's the blower resistor. It was the first thing I fixed on mine when I bought it several months ago. It was a $20 part from the dealer (you can order it from most auto parts stores too). It's EASY to replace, but you have to contort yourself a little. It's right under the passenger side of the dashboard, under the glove compartment. You remove a couple of screws, take out the old one, put in a new one and BAM!! You're all fixed!

Mine also had two settings before I fixed it. It was on or off, no in-between.

Good luck!

I have a 2000 Taurus SES. Recently, the A/C blower stopped working. I have checked the blower motor fuse, and the blower motor coil fuse, and they both look good. Also, I have replaced the blower motor...


You don't say if it is climate control or manual. Either way, the relay gets power from two fuses, a 10amp for the relay and a 40amp for the actual motor. Did you check them with a meter to see if they have power with the key switch on ?
The relay sends power to the motor. The resistor and fan switch provide the ground circuit for the motor.
Does the motor have power and will it run if you jumper the ground circuit to the body ?

the fan motor is maybe bad, disconnect it (the motor) and put in new fuse, if its ok, then the motor is bad. the resistor only handles speeds lower than HIGH. so replace the motor first, then try it, if all speeds work, then the resistor is OK.

2002 taurus sel - sometimes the heater doesn't blow


If the blower motor not blowing,and it is on high, bump the lower motor to see if it will try and start working again,if it does,replace the blower motor.If it does not,then replace the blower relay.If this only happens on the lower speeds,replace the blower motor resister,witch is mounted very near the blower motor in the blower box,with two screws,and about 7 wires going to it.

Blower motor works on high speed only


Drop by your local Ford/Mercury dealer & ask for a blower motor resistor, and ask if Ford is doing anything to help owners with this problem, as it well known that water getting in to blower motor is causing this. You might want to call a local autoparts store for their price on it before you go to dealer, just in case of big price difference.
