2001 sport trac ac/heater fan not working? problem solved!

With all the fuses good I checked the fan . The connector going to the fan was was ok but , where it plugs into the fan there are two terminals or prongs inside one of them look to be burnt off. but with closer observation that one was just pushed in and not making connection with the plug. I pulled it back out with needle nose pliers heated up a small metal rod and closed the platic around the teminal to hold it in place. This fixed my fan problem. you will have to remove the winshield washer/ coolant tank and idle control to get the fan out to fix it. It took maybe 1 HR from start to finish. may thi will be helpful to someone with same problem.

Just found the answer on another site. Sure enough went out removed the 3 philips head screws in the steering column opened it up and walla a wire connection had pulled itself free. When my son uses my truck he always uses the tilt steering, when I get in I have to readjust it. because of this the wire connection pulled itself out. I simply pushed it back in an blinker and brake light are now working. My husband is now trying to figure a way to secure the wire connection so it doesn't pull itself out again. Hope this helps others, either by saving the cost of a dealership or machanic or from getting rear ended.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Windstar runs rough.

remove the coil pack and look at bottom of it if it shows any cracks coil is bad very common on these vans if you have a noid light check for injector pulse on #4 if you have pulse and good blue spark most likely the injector is bad you have to remove upper plenum to get injectors out let me know how you make out

SOURCE: 1999 Ford Taurus 3.0L OHV won't hold coolant?

Hello! There is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) #1-15-6 that addresses electrolysis in the cooling system...If this TSB has been installed on your vehicle...There will be a tag on the drivers door with the TSB #...Also, a restrictor will be inserted into the heater core inlet...Lets eliminate this right up front...Check to see if this TSB is installed...
The vehicle does have a closed system...Electrolysis, coupled with air in the system is the likely culprit...Replacing the metal lines with rubber will increase electrolysis, which turns the coolant to a "goop"...Coolant flow is adequate when being pumped, but when you shut the engine off the goop blocks the system...Pressure is high...So coolant spews out...
I'll send a test to determine the level of electrolysis...You will need a DIGITAL multimeter...We'll fix the the electrolysis...flush the system...replace the thermostat...And properly bleed the air...Send comment about TSB and do yo have the digital meter...Guru...........Saailer

Testimonial: "No, TSB is not installed. No label, and there was nothing in the heater core inlet when I re-did the system. I own a DMM."

2004 pacifica sunroof wont open or do anything . When I press the button i hear nothing no click no noise at all . All my fuses are working but i was told it could possibly be a relay ? any ideas woul


  1. Check the B+ 40 amp fuse in the Integrated Power Module (IPM). If OK, go to Step 2. If not OK, repair the shorted circuit or component as required and replace the inoperative fuse.
  2. Check the Accessory delay 20 amp fuse in the IPM. If OK, go to Step 3. If not OK, repair the shorted circuit or component as required and replace the inoperative fuse.
  3. Partially remove the headliner to access the sunroof motor/module.
  4. Disconnect the motor/module electrical connector. Using a voltmeter check for Battery voltage at the B+ terminal of the harness connector. If OK, go to Step 5. If not OK, repair the B+ circuit as necessary.
  5. With the ignition switch in the "RUN" position check for Battery voltage at the Accessory Relay Output terminal of the harness connector. If OK , go to Step 6. If not OK repair the Accessory Relay Output circuit as necessary.
  6. Using an ohmmeter test for continuity between the harness connector ground circuit and a known good ground. Continuity should be present. If OK go to Step 7. If not OK, repair the open ground circuit as necessary.
  7. Turn the ignition switch to the "OFF" position. Reconnect the motor/module electrical connector. With the ignition switch in the "RUN" position check for battery voltage on the "VENT", "CLOSE" and "OPEN" circuits at the back side of the motor/module connector. If OK, go to Step 8. If not OK replace the motor/module assembly

Blower motor resistor


Locate the blower motor and look around the outside and close to the motor for a 2-by-3-inch plate held on by two or four small screws. There will be an electrical connector plugged into it with five or six wires, depending on the vehicle type and heating and air conditioning type of control panel.
Test the resistor before replacing it. It is always recommended to test any electronic unit before replacing because there are a multitude of things that could cause the same symptoms. It only takes a few minutes and can qualify the assumption that a part is bad. It will save money to replace or repair the right part the first time.
Check the speeds by turning the fan conrol to all positions. Take note which fan speeds work and which speeds do not work. If the fan works only on one speed the blower motor resistor is very likely bad.

Check the fuses if the fan speeds do not work. The fuses for the interior heating and air conditioning fan are usually under the hood in the fuse and relay center. If the fuse looks good, then take it out and turn the ignition key on and use the volt meter set at 20 volts DC. Check to make sure that there is voltage to the fuse. If not, check for an open circuit to the fuse.

Check the relay to determine if there is power at the fuse. The relay should have two of the four terminals showing power. With the key on and the fan turned on, remove the relay and put it back in, listening for it to click. If it does not click, then replace the relay.

Check the voltage at the electrical connector on the blower motor resistor to see if the fuse and relay are good. Make sure that power is present at the connector with the key on and the fan switch on. There should be power at two terminals of the blower motor resistor. If only one terminal has power, replace the resistor. If two terminals have power, replace the blower motor itself. Remove the screws and unplug the connector to remove the blower motor resistor. Put the new one in its place by screwing it back in and plugging in the wiring connector.

Heat fan stopped working..is it a fuse?


Hi!!
It could be the Blower Motor Fuse or Relay and they should be located in the cabin Fuse Box, if both are OK, it could be the blower motor resistor, located on the blower motor housing, it is the part where the electrical connector goes into and it's got a pigtail connector that goes to the blower motor, it is attached to the blower housing by three screws. Here are some pictures for better identification.
FRONT VIEW 1kbron_5.jpg
CONNECTOR FROM RESISTOR TO BLOWER MOTOR 1kbron_6.jpg
SIDE VIEW 1kbron_7.jpg

To test it, make sure the electrical connector has voltage when the FAN is on, if voltage is present, it means relay and fuse are OK, plug the connector into the resistor and check voltage on the pigtail connector, if voltage is present, the resistor is OK, voltage varies according to the speed selected. To check the blower motor, apply 12 volts and ground the the motor terminals, it should kick in in Hi speed, if not Replace Blower Motor.
A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

My radiator fan doesn't work. could it be a fuse or should I replace the whole thing?


it could be a blown fuse,check the fuses in the fuse box under the hood,it also could be the temperature sensor that activates the fan is faulty or it could be a loose wire or a bad connection,the fan should have a connector plug on it so as it can be disconnected if it needs to be replaced pull that connector apart & check for corrosion,if it is a one wire connector run a wire from the positive terminal to the connector, if the fan is OK it will run if it has two wires run another one from the neg . terminal of the batt. check all other connector plugs.....hope this helps.....cheers
