1995 Mercury Mystique defroster problem

The front defroster / heater on a 1995 merc mystique stopped working. Have replaced relay under the dash and can't find a fuse either under dash or under hood in original factory manual that is in line with this. This car is relatively "young" having only 35k miles but has sat for long periods of time in Florida when not snow birding.

Can you help with regard to locating fuse and testing heater motor (can't seem to locate that either ) . Thanks.

There is a resister block located on the duct work that may have failed. it's located near the fan and has a wiring harness going to it. you can jumper that wire for a moment to check the function of the fan as well.. it likely needs to be replaced.

Do you have air coming from the panel vents. If so you could have a lose vacuum line that opens the defrost vent.

Remove a heater blower motor in 1998 mercury mystique it just dont work and need to remove it to check it out


I believe yours is in the middle right of the dash. Under it. If so, then your in for a treat. Most of the dash has to come out to remove it. Get a manual, you'll need it.

You must have recharged the unit? Or replaced the compressor unit? Some have an "overload" relay, it may have caused one of the fuses to blow.
