Heater fan stopped working

When I start my van, the heater blower does not come on. My husband has checked every electrical wire/fuse in the van and still no luck. If anyone has an idea, please help. This is not the time of year for me to be without heat:( Thank you in advance!

Question:If the 30 A. fuse on a 2002 focus dash blower motor is good,and the thermal resistor is replaced, then it must be a faulty speed switch?


Don't know where you got your info . The heater blower motor electrical B+ power comes from Fuse F 64 a 40 amp fuse . This goes right to the blower motor on the green with orange stripe wire , The black with red stripe wire goes to the switch for high speed . There is Splice 24 that ties into the black with red stripe wire. The splice 24 turns into a black with orange stripe wire . An this wire goes to the blower motor resistor . All the switch does is route the B+ voltage through the different resistors to ground .

Thermal resistor "usually" stops working is because of faulty fan speed switch ???? Totally not true , resistor assemblies fail because of the heat associated with dropping voltage across the resistors , That is why they put the resistor assembly in the air box . Air blows over to cool the resistors . The switch is nothing more then a way to direct different speeds to ground .

Rather then listening to other people ,why not learn the right way to test electrical circuits .

2000 escort diesel van.interior heater has stopped working,checked fuse and its not that.any ideas ? any thoughts.cheers


likely your blower motor. but take connector off at blower, key on, htr on high. should have power at connector. check with a test light. If power is present, its your blower. If no power, and fuse is good, it's a wiring issue or your heater blower switch on the dash.

Heater fan works for a while then cuts off till it cools down




What can go wrong with a blower motor?
There are several things that may cause your blower motor to stop working. The simplest cause would be a blown fuse. If you replace the fuse and it quickly blows again, then you probably have an electrical short. Disconnected wires on the exterior of the blower motor can also cause it stop working, and if your blower motor gets dirty, it can get clogged or muddy which keeps the fan blades from spinning.

How do I test my blower motor?
When you are troubleshooting your blower motor, it is best to start by running the air conditioning or the heater to see if you can hear the sound of the fan. If you can hear the fan, it could be clogged or corroded with dirt. If you do not hear the fan, then you may have a bad resistor, blown fuse, or a loose wire. Next, you should replace any blown fuses in your car's fuse panel and try to start the blower motor again. If another fuse blows right away, you have an electrical short. If it doesn't blow out and the motor is still silent, then something else is wrong. In the case where the fuse lasts for a little while as the fan spins but then the fuse blows again, that usually means you need to replace the brushes on the motor. Finally, you can pull the motor out and visually inspect it for loose wires. If you don't see any and still want to test, try hooking it up to the battery to see if the motor will start. If all these tests still find you with a dead blower motor, it's definitely time to replace it.

How do I replace it?
Usually located under your vehicle's instrument panel, the blower motor can be removed and replaced. You'll need to disconnect the blower motor connector and remove the retaining screws holding it into place. Detach the fan retainer clip from the motor shaft that's located in the center of the blower wheel. You may need to save that piece if you are not replacing the whole motor. Inspect your new motor to ensure nothing is broken and the blades can properly spin. Re-attach the fan retainer clip, the retaining screws, and the connector so you can test your new blower motor out.

'97 Venture Van. Fan is not blowing no matter


Test the motor first, The wire to it is a hot positive wire and the motor's housing is the ground. If that works ok next check the resistor to see if its burnt out. Did you look at your fuses first?

boy, that sound like a major circuit to cause all that. either a main fuse under the hood or a main circuit wiring harness connector. there are no unfused circuits that could indicate a short unless there has been past fuse blowing problems
