Question about 2003 Ford Taurus

3 Answers

Blower motor stopped working.

I got a diagnostic test that said blower motor and resistor need replacing on my 2003 Ford Taurus. I replaced both and still no luck. I was told that maybe the blower motor relay or fuse could be bad but I don't know where to find the relay and don't know how to identify relay or fuse because I don't have an owners manual. Has anyone had this problem with the blower motor and how did you resolve it? Just where is the blower motor relay and how do I identify it? Is there a fuse for the blower motor?

Go to this site and you can get a copy of your owners manual. Just pic the owner's manual link in the left side task bar.
The relay is located in the interior fuse panel. It should show you a diagram of the fuse panel in the owners manual.

You should contact your local ford dealership and ask them to run an OASSIS report for open recals on your car becouse it is a knowen problem and most of the time it is replacing the wire harness for the resistor pack

A/c blower motor works if I pull power and plug back in until I cut engine off. Then I have to repeat process


Daryl, You may want to check the blower relay/ just switch with one of same type and try and if OK, problem could be the blower motor, wires/plug loose,damaged,burnt or a faulty blower motor resistor. Second link has some trouble shooting of a overheating wire problem, that is to be common in these trucks. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Front blower motor quit working replaced ignition switch,control module,resister,and blower motor but still doesnt work fuses are all good where do i look next


normally it is the resistor,( relay) then resistor module then motor.
did you test the relay(I believe located under hood, relay/fuse center), If OK check plugs and wires for melting, damage and good connection, grounds should also be checked. Use a volt ohm meter to see if you are getting any power ti motor,etc.

98 buick heater stop working


Its faulty blower motor resistor. The low and medium speed on blower motor is controlled by resistor and its actual speed is high. So because resistor is not working, blower motors actual speed which is high is working.


It can be faulty blower motor or faulty blower motor resistor. Get the blower motor inspected. If it's faulty it has to be replaced.

1998 ford taurus blower won't work. Heat won't go on or the a.c. How can this be fixed or what is the cause of the problem?


Check the fuse box under the hood and look for the a/c heater blower fuse, check to see if it's gone bad and needs to be replaced. The other thing to is check if the blower fan works on high setting only, if it does, then the blower motor resistor has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Once you have gone through all the electrical fuse and relay, then good chance that the blower motor needs to be replaced. If you go to Auto Zone they will have the blower motor and resistor if you want to replace that too and they will have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done with common tools. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer more questions you may have.

My blower motor fan speed switch will work only on High.


I had a similar problem with my 03 Taurus. Does your floorboard on the passenger side get wet when it rains really hard? If so, Ford is aware of a defect above the fan motor which is behind the glovebox.
I contacted Ford directly and they had my local ford dealer fix it free and they gave me money towards a new blower motor which shorted out from the leak, it's possible it just your switch if there is no leak but you might need both the switch and blower motor replaced like I did. Hope this helps.

I have a 2006 ford tuarus,


you need to replace the blower motor resistor, the reason it only works on high is that position bypasses the resistor, it is located near the blower motor
