SOURCE: heater blower switch will only work at possion 4

Underneath the glove compartment on the passenger side is a cover which must come off,2 plastic screws holding this cover.Underneath you will find a 5 pin connector[big plug] connected to a white connector in the blower fan housing.This is called the fan resistor which controls the blower fan speed.Unclip the resistor out the housing and renew.Your problems should be solved..regards

SOURCE: Heater blower switch only works in postions 3 and 4

Heat limiting capacitor is blown on low side. Limits excessive heat to components. Three capacitors on one board. One is constant. One runs two lower speeds and other runs two higher speeds. Need to replace. Follow wire from blower motor back towards center of vehicle. The capacitor is approx. 1.5" X 2.5" and is mounted with two screws. Simply remove plug and two screws, pull out capacitor. Replace with new in reverse order. Did last year. Part was relatively cheap and easy to replace. You do have to be somewhat limber to fingers and tools under there.
Good luck.

SOURCE: Blower swith in position 1,2,3 no blower, in

Check the cover for the environmental cabin filter. It is located on the far right side of the cowling right below the right windshield wiper. There are a few torx screws that secure the cover and then it pulls out to reveal the cabin filter. The cover (being poorly designed by VW) cracks and during rain the rain runs off the window and soaks the cabin filter. The water from the soaked filter then drips down into the blower motor and shorts out the resistor module at the bottom of the blower motor. The blower will continue to operate at full speed because it is operating on an open circuit without need for resistance for the resistor pack. There is a small access "panel" at the bottom of the blower motor you will need to remove in order to see the problem, you should see a frighteningly burned looking module in there. Good Luck! Hope this helps!

SOURCE: 2008 Ford Escape heater blower no longer runs in

It could be the blower resistor. While I'm not familiar with the 2008 Escape, most resistors are located near the blower motor under the dash on the passenger side. It'll have a plug with several wires, and usually 2 screws holding it in.

No heat


You don't mention the make model and year of your car. A coworker has a old VW TDI with 230,000 miles and he had to replace the thermostat to get heat to work again.

Heater fan has sto pped working. The car still lets heat in the cabin when control is turned up. Blower is not wotking. 2008 VW Rabbit.


First look to see if you have a fuse for the blower motor...then you will want to disconnect power to the fan an jump 12 volts to the fan motor to see if it works...if ok, then there is a speed control resistor that sometimes goes bad located on the heater assembly...It is usually right past the fan so the fan can keep it cool and has 4 or more wires on it. if all else ok then last would be the switch inside car

Have a 1982 VW Rabbit conv. The heater fan blows then stops.


Sounds like the resistor has blown from what you say... this is the 4" long Green ceramic bit on the heater blower motor... you can buy them seperately.

But.. watch out, the switch on the dash on Mk1 Golfs / Caddys are very common

Hi
Sorry....No good news on this problem.
The resistor is built into the blower motor and can NOT be removed

Blower motor doesn't blow anymore, This blows


If it blows only on high speed, it is the resister.
If it does not work at all, check fuses first. See owner manual for location.
Then check blower motor by jumping 12 volts from battery to blower motor. Make sure ground is jumped too.

If it works now, it's the control panel. If not, it is the motor.

Blower Motor —Front Removal and Installation
  1. Prepare the vehicle for blower motor (19805) removal.
    1. Disconnect the battery ground cable (14301). For additional information, refer to Section 414-01 .
    1. Remove the air cleaner assembly. For additional information, refer to Section 303-12 .
  1. Detach the speed control servo.
    1. Disconnect the electrical connector.
    1. Remove the bolt.
    1. Position the speed control servo aside.
  1. Position the coolant expansion tank/windshield washer reservoir aside.
    1. Remove the screws and the nuts.
    1. Position the coolant expansion tank/windshield washer reservoir aside.
  1. Remove the blower motor.

Heater Blower Motor Switch Resistor(s)
The front heater blower motor switch resistor has the following features:
  • The assembly is located in the engine compartment on the evaporator housing (19850) next to the blower motor assembly (19805).
  • Three resistor elements are mounted on the resistor board to provide four blower motor speeds.
  • Depending on the heater blower motor switch position, series resistance is added or bypassed in the A/C blower motor circuit to decrease or increase A/C blower motor speed.
  • An overheating device (thermal limiter) will open the resistor coil circuit when the temperature reaches 121°C (250°F), interrupting the blower motor operation in all speeds except high.
  • The thermal limiter cannot be reset and is not serviceable.
