You must have a short somewhere. It's going to be hard to find for sure. Next time it blows start checking for the short with a volt meter in everything connected to that fuse.

Heater switch replacment

Hello! it's my job to make things as easy for the customer as possible...Therefore I must ask why you want to replace the heater switch? Is it because you have lost one or two of the switch speeds? Your vehicle is noted for loss of the Blower Motor Resistor...
Changing the Heater switch means removal of the Climate Control Assembly which is not the easiest of jobs...I've included the process...But are you sure the blower resistor is OK? If you have lost 1,2, or all blower motor speeds it's more than likely the Resistor pack. And a lot easier to change...

Remove climate control:

  1. Remove the instrument cluster finish panel...
  1. Remove the 3 climate control assembly screws...
  1. Disconnect the climate control assembly vacuum connector...
  1. Disconnect the 5 climate control assembly electrical connectors...
  1. Remove the climate control assembly..
Removal of blower motor Switch:
  1. Remove the climate control assembly.
  1. Remove the blower motor switch knob.
  1. Remove the blower motor switch.
    1. Remove the screw.
    1. Remove the blower motor switch.

Removal of blower motor Resistor:

Blower Resistor is under the battery tray...

The climate control on my audi a4 1.8 avant estate doesnt work. The digital display works perfectly fine but no air comes out at all

Hi Michael. You don't say what mileage your car has done, but if you use the heater blower during normal UK winters, it's a strong possibility that the blower motor has packed up, (check with a new fuse first), or that the carbon brushes have worn down so far that they no longer have contact with the slip rings of the heater blower fan. This could show itself as an intermittent stop-starting of airflow which would maybe come and go with increasingly longer periods of no airflow until it finally fails to work at all. If you haven't tried it already, set the control to demist and give the NS door (nearest the blower motor) a good slam shut just as the LED lights on the display start climbing up. This may jolt the blower motor into turning.NB this is not a permanent fix and may cause other damage if used regularly!!! A new blower motor (OEM apparently) will cost about £65 inc delivery from ebay (the 'real' price seems to be about £130, God only knows what the labour charge would be). The brushes are available separately for under a tenner inc. postage also from ebay. It seems that this is a very common problem with A4/ A3/ Passat blower motors which have reached the circa 10 yr old mark. Fitting the brushes is about a 1- 2 hr job if you are prepared to do it yourself, and involves removing the blower motor after removing the glovebox by accessing the hexhead screws on the panel at end of fascia, with NS door opened. There are a few forums with good pics of this if you have a search. The carbon brushes are a commonly widespread standard size and fit a lot of VW Audi models. You need to weigh this up against the cost of a new blower motor, and how much of your own time you want to spend on the project, but none of this is very difficult; even soldering the brush contacts is a very simple job if you have ever used a soldering iron. If you don't own a soldering iron, and will have to buy one, or if you don't consider £65 too much to pay for a new motor, it would be a simpler job to replace the blower motor and avoid the brushes and soldering job altogether. I have heard that reputable auto repairers would ask for around £200-£250 to replace the heater blower motor, which is not dreadfully unreasonable if the parts cost is £130, but less reasonable if they are paying £65 for the part....Best of Luck.

Heater blower does not work on my audi a4, where

The blower motor is located behind the glovebox.

You will need to remove the glovebox and you will see the blower motor at the top right side. Remove the screws holding it, disconnect the electrical connector and remove it from the car. It is a tight squeeze, be patient.

Need to find and fix blend door on 2001 Audi A4 Quattro 2.8L

you would have to remove the dash. i would first check the auxilary water pump to make sure it's not leaking. if your car has electronic climate control turn the heat on low with the engine off the change the temperature and listen for an electric motor sound to see if the blend motor is working.

1997 Audi A4 2.6- heater blower working intermittantly. Display is working ok it shows fan speed going up & down but no air coming out of the vents.

check if you can here the fan running. If not the cause can be that the bushes have reached there limit and need to be replaced. If you have the time and tools, you can remove the motor and get to the bushes. You will find that they have been worn down to a curn shape. If you remove each bush, and flip it 180 degrees, then the tip of the bush will make contact with the motor shaft. This will give you many months of fan life and save you a packet. You could also replace the buses with new ones - Audi do not sell them but can be matched by good auto shops.

1999 Audi A4 Climate Control Removal/Installation

You have to remove the trim panel around the stereo/climate control to expose the screws that hold it in place. Once you do that, and the screws are removed, it pulls straight out and unplugs. No need to disconnect the battery and no tricks to it once it slides out.
