Question:If the 30 A. fuse on a 2002 focus dash blower motor is good,and the thermal resistor is replaced, then it must be a faulty speed switch?


Don't know where you got your info . The heater blower motor electrical B+ power comes from Fuse F 64 a 40 amp fuse . This goes right to the blower motor on the green with orange stripe wire , The black with red stripe wire goes to the switch for high speed . There is Splice 24 that ties into the black with red stripe wire. The splice 24 turns into a black with orange stripe wire . An this wire goes to the blower motor resistor . All the switch does is route the B+ voltage through the different resistors to ground .

Thermal resistor "usually" stops working is because of faulty fan speed switch ???? Totally not true , resistor assemblies fail because of the heat associated with dropping voltage across the resistors , That is why they put the resistor assembly in the air box . Air blows over to cool the resistors . The switch is nothing more then a way to direct different speeds to ground .

Rather then listening to other people ,why not learn the right way to test electrical circuits .

I have a 2001 Ford Focus DOHC. Heater doesn't blow hot. Hot cold indicator switch clicks as i9t should when I turn indicator but it doesn't seem to change anything


Feel your heater hoses and see if they are getting hot..If so when your click from the switch ,,make sure the door is switching from hot to cold

Blower heater on my Ford Focus TDDC 2004 doesn`t work inspite all the fuses are ok. what can you suggest about this problem.


Check resistor behind the glove box, take glove box out should be green in colour. Have seen these burnt ot before, should replace the wiring loom and resistor. Not expensive.

If it doesn't blow at all, and/or you only feel a small amount of air coming through the vents (not forced), it may be the blower motor switch (resistor).

Hope this helps.

I have a ford focus 2001 wagon. My heater motor doesnt work on settings 1 -3 but works on setting 4. I have replaced the blower motor. I have also replaced the switch. Is there any thing esle i can try to...


Third time's a charm. Would have told you to check the resistor first. Doh!
If it's any consolation, a bad switch is usually what makes the resistor go bad, but your old motor is probably just fine--sell it on e-bay!
Now, if I could only tell you where to find the resistor. Somewhere along the heater box between the switch and the motor. The resistors actually hang inside the box for cooling. It looks like the pick below with wires coming out. Some wires go to the motor, some to the switch.
Find it, take connector off, take 2 screws out. Pull it out of the heater box. See, it's all burned up.
Pay autozone $50 for a new one and get back to your life.

My 2001 Ford Focus' heater/air dial has stopped working. The heater will only turn on "4" and the air conditioner will not come on. What is the problem?


Sounds like a burned resistor for your fan speed. 2- 8mm screws removes resistor check to insure coils are not broke.

2001 ford focus heater switch


I have just managed to fix the blower in my 2004 Ford Focus. Only worked on number 4 which cuts out the AC. Garage quoted me £40 for part and £40 for labour. I brought a second hand resistor from these people (very helpful and only £10 plus VAT) http://www.breakeryard.com/view_supplier_feed...

. Arrived next day. To replace the old one you just remove the 3 screws under the glove box and pull the box out. In front of you will be a big barrel which is the fan. To the bottom right of this you will see the old resistor. This is held in by one screw. Remove this and pull out the fixed wires. Put in the new part, re attach the wires and put the screw back. Job done. Should take about 15mins.
Hope this helps somebody somewhere
