'tis the season. Check the fuses to see if they are good. You may need to wiggle them a bit and if they are the old style with the exposed metal strip, check closely for small cracks. If the fuse is good and the contacts are not corroded, it may be the resistor.

This assumes that the blower is not moving any air at all. If the problem is the air won't blow through certain vents, that's a vacuum line problem.

    Call the dealer and ask them where it is located. Then you will know where it is but not if it will fix the problem. You might take it by an electrical shop and have them test the switch before you go diving into this.

I own a 1993 BMW 318i and the fan in the front of


I assume you mean the radiator fan. This might be indicative of a different problem. The main issue is, does the car overheat? If not, then it's probably a thermostat that's stuck open. A lot of things can fail in the fan system...the fan motor itself, a fuse, a relay, or the temperature sensor that tells the fan to turn on.

1998 bmw 318i. aux cooling fan does not run. Causing motor to run hot.


check the relay, most probably under the hood, and check the fuse, most probably under the steering wheel near pedals. If u have two fans, most times the 2nd fan is driven by a strap from hte 1st motor, if so, check to see if its broken. If it does need a strap, should turn freely by hand since it has no motor or strap.
