Question about 1998 Mercury Tracer

1 Answer

Heater/Fan Hey all, I have a question, I have a 1998 Mercury Tracer FWD with a 126,000. Went to start the car to defrost and warm up and no air was blowing from the vents, went inside 20 mins later it was on and the car was warm. Two days later it did the same thing but this time it didnt come back on? And now its completely off at all times. Its not the fuse im pretty sure its the fan. Ive searched high and low for a answer on what it could be? Can anyone give me any info? It wont even blow cold air out :( Thanks

I think you're right that it is the blower fan. It could be a bad connection on it - that will work when it's hot enough to dry it out, or it may be worn out or sticky.
It needs investigating anyway.

You could first try putting 12V across it to see if it is an electrical issue, or rotating it by hand when cool to see if it is siezing.

Sometimes replacement is needed, but could also be just a bad connection.

Heater Core replacement

first, check the coolant level and add if its low..check for accidental ac turn-on at the controlls..then its an issue with the controls themselves provided the water pump is good..there are baffle doors that are controlled reemotely in the dash and one of these couldd be not functioning or blocked by debris like a penny sliding into the defrost vent will jam the door and keep it from working...check these and see...good luck..

1998 HEATER OR HEATER FAN DON'T WORK. Does it have a fuse ?

Yes it does i believe it is a 30 amp. Should be under the dash. Check all your fuses under the dash. Just because it doesn't say heater doesn't mean it don't affect the circuit.

Check the blower resister and blower motor connection located under the passenger side of the dash.they have a tendency to get burnt up due to a poor connection .:)

1998 mercury tracer. overheated while waiting in

It might be a bad relay or a bad engine coolant temp sensor. Fan is likely good. Might have 2 relays. See owner manual.

89 merc tracer blows cold air brrrrrrr

I would recommend flushing the heater core with water thru the coolant line, then blowing compressed air thru it also. And when you refill the coolant, make sure there is no air in the system.I would also recommend replacing the thermostat if you have the time and the money and the knowledge to do so
