Question about 1998 Honda Accord

1 Answer

1998 Honda Accord interior ventilation fan has stopped working.

The air con stopped working some time ago and I was told it needed topping up (didnt get it done) then my interior blower fan became slower over a period of weeks and has now stopped even on the highest setting. The fuses look ok , I have removed the glove compartment but not sure how to get access to the fan to check the wiring. I suspect that the brushes are worn on the fan and it probably needs removing for repair or replacement.
I have been told by the Honda dealer that the air con not working shouldnt have caused the fan to stop.

They are right the air conditioner has nothing to do with the fan running .. your air conditioner is operated by a pressure switch .when it gets low on freon it will not come on, which saves your compressor. your fan only blows the cold air the air conditioner puts in to the coils located inside your dash. which the blower then blows the air into the car.. now you are on the right track look some more you will find the round motor under that dash near the glove box and its held in there with usually 4 small bolts. and removal is easy if you can locate it.. one wire and 4 small bolts and out it comes .. you should be able to get one at a local parts store ..

Interior fan has stopped but air con compressor starts when fan is switched on


look for blower motor. if not the case, the blower could just be broken. it can happen once the vehicle gets close to 10 years, but is usually preceded by a noise in the blower. most everything other than the blower, in the ac system, goes back to the mc unit.

What causes the interior blower motor to run & quit sporadically even with no A/C running?


Hi Milton, Sounds like another problem with the motor or the power supply to it. Check the connections first and then the motor. Regards John

Interior fan hasn't worked properly for some time, would only work on fan's highest setting. Now we've got no air at all, regardless of setting.


Blower motor RESISTER has went bad. Its behind the blower motor; small hands are a definite plus for changing it.

WHY DOES MY RADIATOR FAN COMES ON ONLY WHEN MY AC IS ON ON MY 88 TOYOTA COROLLA


Hi,
it is generally because the air con heat exchanger has to be cooled in order for your air con to work correctly and cool the interior of your car.


The air conditioning utilises a gas by the name of freon. This gas is pumped around the air con system by a compressor. The gas, going through the aircon cooler or heat exchanger, starts to cool down. Depending on the system layout, the gas is forced through a very small aperture situated after the cooler. It reverts to a liquid, passes through the matrix in the car, a fan blows the interior air of the car through the matrix. The fluid picks up the heat, and cooler air exits the matrix and, (hopefully) cools the interior of the car. This endless cycle is repeated as long as the air con is powered on.

Hope this brief description will suffice.

My blower only works on setting 123 + air con not that cold


You have a resistor array assembly going out. What you described is typical of the first resistor going out and over loading the second, which goes out and overloads the third. Replace the HVAC resistor array. Don't buy a used one. Spend the extra money on the new OEM dealer item. Good luck to you.
