My blower motor stopped working, front and back of van.

My rear blower stopped working about 3 years ago, now my front one has stopped working. I checked all of the fuses and relays and everything seems to be operational. Thank you so much.

My rear blower motor stopped working and my Brother took the unit apart. He found out that the fan blade had seized up the unit. After he took out blade and sanded down blades, it worked fine. However, I am not sure about your front unit. Good luck.

REMOVAL

WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS, DISABLE THE AIRBAG SYSTEM BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. DISCONNECT AND ISOLATE THE BATTERY NEGATIVE (GROUND) CABLE, THEN WAIT TWO MINUTES FOR THE AIRBAG SYSTEM CAPACITOR TO DISCHARGE BEFORE PERFORMING FURTHER DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. THIS IS THE ONLY SURE WAY TO DISABLE THE AIR-BAG SYSTEM. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN AN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH OR DEATH.

NOTE: The blower motor is located on the passenger side of the vehicle under the instrument panel. The blower motor can be removed from the vehicle without having to remove the HVAC housing.

  1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the passenger side cowl trim panel.
  3. Position the carpet to access the front upper screw that secures the air inlet housing.
  4. Remove the recirculation door actuator.
  5. Disconnect the blower motor wire lead connector from the blower motor resistor or power module, depending on application.
    1. Remove the one screw (from the top) that secures the lower air inlet housing to the upper air inlet housing.
    2. Remove the four screws (from the bottom) that secure the lower air inlet housing to the upper air inlet housing and remove the lower HVAC housing.
    3. Push the rubber grommet through the opening in the lower air inlet housing.
    4. Route the blower motor wire lead through the opening in the lower air inlet housing and remove the lower air inlet housing from the vehicle.
    5. Position the recirculation-air door as necessary to access and remove the three screws that secure the blower motor to the lower half of the HVAC housing.
    6. Gently flex the recirculation air door downward to gain access to remove the blower motor from the HVAC housing. NOTE: To aid in installation, note the position of the blower motor mounting tabs prior to removal
      1. Remove the blower motor from the HVAC housing by rotating and tilting the blower motor as necessary.
      INSTALLATION

      1. Gently flex the recirculation-air door downward to gain access to install the blower motor into the HVAC housing.
      2. Position the blower motor to the HVAC housing and tilt and rotate the blower motor as necessary to install it into the HVAC housing.
      3. Align the blower motor mounting tabs to the locations noted during removal and install the three screws that secure the blower motor to the HVAC housing. Tighten the screws to 2 N·m (17 in. lbs.).
      4. Route the blower motor wire lead through the opening in the lower air inlet housing and seat the rubber grommet.
      5. Position the recirculation door pivot shaft into the lower air inlet housing and install the inlet housing.
      6. Install the four screws (from the bottom) that secure the lower air inlet housing to the upper air inlet housing and the lower HVAC housing. Tighten the screws to 2 N·m (17 in. lbs.).
      7. Install the one screw (from the top) that secures the lower air inlet housing to the upper air inlet housing. Tighten the screw to 2 N·m (17 in. lbs.).
      8. Connect the blower motor wire lead connector to the blower motor resistor or power module, depending on application.
      9. Install the recirculation door actuator.
      10. Reposition the carpet.
      11. Install the passenger side cowl trim panel.
      12. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
      13. Perform the heater-A/C control calibration procedure.

My front motor blower is very loud on 4, but not my back a/c. is it easy to fix on your own ? if not how much does one cost to replace ?


I can only answer part of your question because you didn't mention what kind of Ford we are talking about. YEAR, MODEL, ENGINE SIZE, TRANSMISSION (automatic or standard) can all make a BIG difference in how hard the job is to do AND how much it is going to cost to fix it.

Many times, when a front blower motor is making loud noises, it is because there is someting that has gotten into the blower motor housing. I have seen loose papers from the glove box get drawn into the blower housing many times. In these cases the cost is not much at all, or even free if you do it yourself. You simply remove the blower motor and clear out whatever there is that got stuck in there and reassemble.

MOST blower motors are not hard to remove and replace except that you have to work in some tight places most of the time. The blower itself is usually only held in by 3 or 4 screws and an electrical connector. Again, I can't give any specifics because I don't know what kind of vehicle we are talking about. Since you mentioned a rear blower motor, I can only assume that you are talking about a van or a large SUV.

Rear AC dosnt blow in the back of van. is there another blower motor in the rear besides the one in the front?


If you open the back door on the van, to the left in the 1998 van there is a panel with the air compressor behind it. there is a blower motor for the rear of the van vent system behind that compressor panel. in the 1998 van there is a clip that plugs in and can become loose causing the blower to not come on.

The rear blower works in the rear but not in the frount. The rear is still getting heat & Ac but not the front.


This might be a blower motor, there are 2 of this van 1 for the rear and 1 for the front. I would check all your fuses, in the cab. also it may be a blower motor resistor not sure if it uses the same one as the back blower. lastly your blower motor switch could have a problem. good luck

Blower motor stopped working


It seems a little high but do not know the labor charges in the area you live. No way to tell if you have rear heat and yes that would affect the price.
Sorry about your husband, good luck.
