Question about 1990 Mitsubishi Minivan

1 Answer

Fan Motor My air conditioning has been replaced in a mitsubishi express van 1995 SJ series. That all works well now but the fan blower works poorly, at full speed it works as if on low speed, I bought new carbon brushes and that improved the blower speed slightly but still does not blow as well as it did when I first bought the van. The motor I bought was secondhand as the original the brushes were worn and the commutator segments gone, the commutator segments on this one were grooved and I placed the armature in a lathe and filed it down smooth and then used 2000grit to finish it off. Is there anything I can do to make the blowere blow more air, or can I replace it with a different motor?

The motor ,or the fan selector switch,and connector most likely are the problem,check the fan,it could be at fault,or the switch,and connector,as for the floorboard being wet,it is most likely the drain for the evaporator is stopped up,look directly below where the ac lines go in the firewall(in the car from under the hood)the drain will be there,blow it out with air pressure,like a air tank,and blow gun.Water will pour out like a water fall if you get it clear.If this was helpful,please rate,and thank you.

SOURCE: front blower motor will not

This may be a faulty Blower motor resistor, usually mounted inside the blower motor air box, or defective blower motor. There is no single Relay for the blower motor.

Dodge caravan air conditioning fan not blowing

I would turn the fan on with the van off and listen to see if just the blower is working at all or a slower speed. . If you have a volt meter you could make sure it was getting power by unplugging the wire to it and testing there.. If you have power then the blower motor is the problem . If it was a resister it would not work at all normally. or it would work on one speed but not another speed in most cases.. I would think by the age of it more likely a bad blower fan motor .the part is about 73 dollars to replace complete with fan and the resisters are 15-20 at your local auto parts store .
This could also be a wire harness issue with the resister plug which supplies the power to the blower . it very common that the wires got hot and melted from old age or from a blower that was old and drawing too much power .The resister and harness or located under the hood on the firewall of the passenger side of the van .Yes there is a fuse for the blower fan under the dash .If it has blown it could be the blower drawing too much power.or other issues .
Yes we sure do feel the heat here in Florida .

I have a 1995 Acura Legend, air conditioner blower stopped workin

It means the blower fan is not running, look for wires that got knocked off, usually at the motor....

Good news is the AC sounds like it is working correctly, so this repair cost should be smaller. Apply external power to the fan terminal to see if it goes, if it does, problem is upstream, switch, resistors, etc.

But sounds like a fan. Test it. independently from the rest of the car

How can I fix my air conditioning?

you need to replace the blower motor, Im not %100 on the location of the one in a 97 pontiac mini van, but they are generally located just above the floorboard, under the dash on the passenger side of the vehicle.

1995 chevy alumina blower fan motor not working

The problem is most likely the blower motor resistor. I'm not sure where it is located on your vehicle, most are on the firewall under the hood or near the blower motor itself.

Heater/Air Conditioning Fan

Are you talking about the blower motor or the radiator fan? The blower motor is under the glove box in the circular black plastic cover. This is very easy to replace, a new one cost about $50 and just plugs right in. There is a 30 amp heater fuse in front over the driver seat under the dash. It's above all the other fuses, its black and rectangular. If that's not it it may be the blower motor

But if its your radiator fan its another ball game. First try the fuses and the relay in the fuse box under the hood, driverside. If thats not it, it could be the fan motor. f the fan motor is burnt out thats easy. Thats $130 for a new motor at the auto store and there are only 3 bolts that hold the radiator fan assembly in. Pull that out, change the motor out (3 more bolts) and put it back in, plug it in and your done.

If the problem is in the radiator fan and not the blower motor it could also be a busted thermostat. Not horrible, but if you have the 1.9 liter engine you have to take of the distributor, to get to it. New thermostat is $8.

I had to replace the blower motor and the ac worked better than great after. My recent problem is in the radiator fan. Not coming on at all. I replaced the motor, the relay, the fuses, the thermostat (was also broken), and the problem persists. This is a worst case senario. I think I have it narrowed down to a fusible link, but have to locate them.

Good luck
