We need to know what car you are driving. If it is a Ford product, just follow the wires from the heater fan motor under the hood to a small plug-in part sticking out of the metal Firewall or ductwork.

On Ford made products this is a 2 bolt mounted part with a wiring harness plugged in. Sometimes replacement is not necessary, just tap the part with a broom handle and it will reset. The part is expensive and no rhyme or reason for failure. A new part can do exactly the same thing.

Please rate my solution.

For advice on other Brands submit a question naming the brand.

SOURCE: flash signal


To my knowledge the turn signal flasher for a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero is part of the Hazard Flashing switch. It is actually a 4 way flasher unit in one assembly.

Additionally, there was a recall order for 1999-2002 Alero models due to electrical issues which includes signal lights. You can try calling Oldsmobile at 1-800-630-6537. The Ref. No. is 04098A issued Jan. 11, 2006. Accordingly, the repairs will be made at no charge to the customer. The special policy covers warranty repair (for such problems) for a period of 10 years or 150,000 miles (240,000 km), whichever occurs first.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

For the past month or so i have only had on on my blower for my ac and heat settings 1 2 3 has stopped workin i was told its a easy cheap fix i just dont know what it exactly is and where its exactly...

follow the wires back from the blower motor. The wires from the blower motor should plug into it. That is the part you need to change. Called the blower motor resistor

I have a 1995 Acura Legend, air conditioner blower stopped workin

It means the blower fan is not running, look for wires that got knocked off, usually at the motor....

Good news is the AC sounds like it is working correctly, so this repair cost should be smaller. Apply external power to the fan terminal to see if it goes, if it does, problem is upstream, switch, resistors, etc.

But sounds like a fan. Test it. independently from the rest of the car

It is possible that you'll need to replace the fan motor or the entire unit if the motor it'self can not be replace separately from the fan.
