98 ford contour heater wire leading into interior fuse box

Hello..i need help with possible reason why my heater wire into interior fuse box wants to overheat at connection. i replaced wire(red and green with connector) cut from another car at junkyard. this remedied problem since other connector melted. but i found sometimes my heater stops so i looked again closer and where connector goes the prong for red wire on fuse box side is corroded, i need to know if there is a reason for this from behind fuse box, the prong right next to it is fine, which has something to do with fuel pump i think. i am without heat until i can find out what may be the culprit of the corrosion with this prong. thank u very much

Corrosion can cause a week connection .if the wire you replaced it with was used it could have had the (cancer ) inside already

Is there a fuze for the ac for A 99 ford contour

A blown fuse can be identified by a break in the wire. All fuses are a push fit.

In Passenger Compartment fuse box... five reserve fuses with different current ratings are attached to the inside cover of the power distribution box in case of emergency fuse replacement. Check R14 for Heater blower motor...

Position 30, 30 AMP for Heater blower motor


Hope helps.

None of the electrical works on the interior of the car. The heater fan, the radio, the dash lights, etc.


Start by checking the fuses and relays. There is more than one fuse box in Fords - one inside the car and one under the hood. IF the fuses are OK, then a harness may have come apart. You would need to trace the wiring under/behind the dash. Does the car start OK?

Heater fan won't work. had motor checked, it is good


it could be two things that i can think of.
first and easiest to check is there is a 2 wire connector at the lower corner of the interior fuse box. sometimes it gets burnt because of poor connection. turn the blower on and wiggle the wires when you find them the are fairly large wires.
i think one is red.
other than that the blower resistors go bad but the normally work on high. the blower swith could be burnt?

Check the fuses first, if they are all good, check for a loose ground wire.
