Question about 1996 Ford Thunderbird LX

1 Answer

No Power to blower motor

I have no power at the terminal to the blower motor module. There was power until while checking I shorted across the terminal. I have checked the fuse under the hood listed as the blower motor fuse in the owners manual and it is ok. I have also checked all the 20 and 30A fuses under the dash and all are ok. ?Could there be a breaker or fusable link somewhere in the system stopping power from getting there?

    The fuse under the dash has power on both terminals

Chk. to see if you got a heater resister. if no resister. maybe a relay somewhere around blower motor, somepeople call them breakers others call them relays. ford uses alot of fuseable links but i dought there would be any under dash.

2007 Buick Lucerne CXL: Cooled seats not working. LIghts come on, temperature adjusters work but the motors under the seats do not come on.


Air Circulation
When the heated/cool seat switch is pressed to initiate operation of the climate control seat (CCS) system, cabin air is drawn through the heated/cool ventilation module air filter, then directed through passages in the foam of the seat cushion and seat back to the seat's occupant. In order for the CCS system to operate to its optimum performance, it is crucial to have unrestricted air flow through the system. A dirty or restricted air filter, the blockage of an exhaust air duct, a misaligned heated/cool ventilation module, or incorrect foam installation of the seat cushion or seat back will all have negative effects on CCS operation.
Heated/Cool Ventilation Module
Each heated/cool seat has 2 ventilation modules, one located under the seat cushion and one located in the seat back. These modules are controlled by the climate control seat module (CCSM). Each ventilation module contains a thermo-electric device (TED), a temperature sensor, and a blower motor. The TED and temperature sensor are mounted downstream of the blower motor. Each TED consists of a circuit of positive and negative connections sandwiched between 2 ceramic plates. Each ceramic plate is equipped with copper fins for heat exchange. The air flowing past these fins is either directed as conditioned air into the seat cushion and seat back, or directed into the cabin as waste air.
A TED is essentially a solid state heat pump that is used to heat or cool the air supply to the seat cushion and seat back. When voltage is applied to a TED, one side releases energy as heat, while the opposite side absorbs energy and gets cold. When the polarity of the current flow to the TEDs is switched, the hot and cool sides of the TED reverse.
During the following climate control seat system description and operation, the TEDs, blower motors, and temperature sensors will be referenced independently even though they are all packaged together as a module.
Climate Control Seat (CCS) System
The CCS system consists of two heated/cool ventilation modules and one climate control seat module (CCSM) that controls both the driver and passenger heated/cool seats systems. The CCSM is mounted below the front passenger seat cushion. It receives power from both, battery positive voltage and ignition 3 voltage.
Once a CCS system is activated, cabin air is drawn through the seat blower motors and directed across the fins of each of the thermo-electric device (TED) located under the seat cushion and in the seat back. The air is either heated or cooled as it passes over the TEDs. This conditioned air is then directed through channels in the foam of the seat pad and through small holes in the seat cover to the occupant. Once the system is activated, the CCSM uses a set of algorithms to control the temperature of the selected heating or cooling modes.
Your best bet is to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop an have it diagnosed .

How do i check to see if the fuse went out for my heat


Do you want to know why the blower doesn't work? If so, start at the underhood junction block and check the 30A BLO MOT maxi fuse which feeds power to the blower control module. Next, at the instrument panel junction block, check the 10A CSTR/SBM fuse and the 10A HVAC fuse. Both of these supply power to the heater and A/C programmer and the HVAC fuse also supplies power to the heater & A/C control. If all fuses are OK and everything is operating except the blower motor, check the voltage across its BLK and RD leads. The blower motor may be no good

My fan motor and windows and radio loose power, like its a loose wire or a short to the framae from the primary fuse box to the secondary one, how can i find the problem and fix it


COULD HAVE CORROSION INSIDE FUSE AND RELAY BOX CAUSING POOR CONTACT IN ELECTRICAL CIRCUITS. REMOVE FUSE AND RELAYS TO CONTROL CIRCUITS SPRAY A LITTLE ELECTRONIC CLEANER ALLOW IT TO DRY.CHECK BLOWER MOTOR RELAY IT COULD BE BAD OR BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR BAD HOT BLOWER MOTOR TO SEE IF BLOWER WORK IF NO YOU HAVE FAULTY BLOWER MOTOR. IF BLOWER MOTOR WORKS WHEN YOU HOT WIRE BLOWER MOTOR CONTROL SWITCH COULD BE BAD.RADIO AND POWER PROBLEM COULD BE IN THE FRONT CONTROL MODULE IF CLEANING OUT CONTACT WITH ELECTRONIC CLEANER.DEALERSHIP HAS TO CHECK IT OUT.

Cabin fan does not operate at all. Fuses are good,


Might be the Resistor pack located close to the blower. It has a flat connector with 4 or 5 wires, and two small screws holding in the duct. It may be a crispy critter. It happens... The blower moves air across it to keep it cool. The blower motor may be bad as well, or possibly the fan speed switch. May very well be the fuse for the blower as well. Let me know what you find.

Hello, The power module controls the blower motor. It is located on top of the heater case under the hood towaeds the passenger side. When replacing the power module make sure the seperate ground wire is tight and that it is a good ground.

The a/c blower motor is not working


the blower motor or the blower speed control module is bad. turn the a/c on and rap on the blower motor a few times, if it doesnt work check for power at the blower motor, if it has power the motor most likely bad, if NO POWER then the module is bad.

2003 trailblazer back air stays on after the truck is turned off


hi, there is a technical service bulletin published by general motors about these trailblazers and this problem, it is very common to have this problem if you own one of these. the rear a/c module is located on the passenger side in the very back underneath the plastics and bezels in the back. there is a blower resistor module that controls the fan speeds and recieves input from the control panel that gets too hot and melts the plastic surrounding the wiring connector and allows the terminal inside the connector to short the fan control wire to battery power. if this is the case, you will have to replace the resistor module, the wiring and connector, and sometimes the blower motor. you should contact you local gm/chevy dealer for parts though, they have the wiring pigtail so you replace just the connector end, and the new style resistor module, and if i remeber right, i think there is a air shield in the kit to install to improve air flow inside across the resistor to help cool it down. the blower motor when running produces the cooling ability for the resistor, if there was no airflow across the resistor, it would overheat almost immeadiatly. take the rear plastics off and the rear seat out, and have a look, you should be able to find this problem pretty quickly.

Where is the front fan resistor unit?


Look under the van,on the drivers side near the radiator,it should be in that area.Follow the wires from the fans,they should go right to the module.This is for the cooling fans for the radiator.For the resister module for the blower motor look near the blower motor in the blower box.It is near the blower fan.It can be under hood,but it will be mounted with two screws.Remove the two screws,but you need to remove the wire plug in first.Pull it out .It goes inside of the blower box.If you replace this module,replace the blower motor also,because the blower motor is what causes the resistor to burn out.Did you check voltage at fuse with key on?If you did not check the fuse with key on,you got a false reading.If you checked the fuse with key on,look for a bad ignition switch,or a fusible link burned into coming off a pos. terminal post where the battery cable goes to under the battery.If the blower will not work at all even on high blower,the resister most likely not the resistor.The blower motor relay is most likely the problem.
