Question about 1996 Toyota Tacoma

Open Question

1996 Tacoma Heater/Ac blower cuts out.

It stops working (at all speeds) for anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. It will come back on and work fine. Is it the blower motor or the resistor?

SOURCE: Blower motor has only low speed

You may need to get the correct resistor, as they are designed to only allow so much amperage to go through them. If it is getting very hot it is runnig to many amps through it. It will eventually blow and you will need to replace it anyway.

there is no relay for the heater fan it's a 15 amp fuse and is on the accessories circuit. the reostat is responsible for all 3 speeds .with the key off there should be no voltage to the blower motor whether the fans speed fan switch is on or off. the fuse will be located in the fuse paneleither on the drivers left side in the dash or underneath the dash in the fuse block. you have a short in the harness that is under the dash and most likely it's a bad plug on the harness. your going to have to do some searching but that's where the problem short is... please rate

Remove the glovebox door, and the under dash cover/trim panel.

Look behind where the glove box was, you will see the heater box

At the bottom of this box, there is a round plate with a wiring connector and 3 screws holding this plate to the heater box.

This plate is the bottom of the heater fan assembly; remove the connector, and the 3 screws. The fan motor will drop staright down. Real easy to do.

I see quite a few of these that the connector on the blower motor side goes bad. One thing you can do is remove the panel under the passenger side of the dash. You will see the blower motor when you remove it. With the key on and the blower motor set to any speed wiggle/pull/twist the connector. If the blower motor changes speed or stops it need to be replaced.

I assume you mean that the blower motor quit running. Did you try it to see if it will run on any speed? If it won't run on high, but runs on the lower speeds, it is most likely a bad blower motor high relay. If it will not blow on any speed, it could be the blower motor fuse (In which case, you must find out why it blew or it will only happen again.) or the blower motor itself. Buick Century is known to burn the connector at the blower motor. There is a replacement connector available in the aftermarket to repair this. I personally recommend replacing the blower motor also if it is a burned connector because the blower motor is usually partially shorted internally, which is what causes the connector to get hot and burn.

Have you checked the resistor block that controls the fan speed? The fact that the blower will run after you tap it suggests to me that the motor is possibly faulty.You will have to remove the fan assembly,then feed it 12 volts directly and see what happens.If it continues to run then work back from there,if it heats up or stops you have your culprit.Good luck.

Ok, may sound like a dumb question,but how do you know if its a blower motor resistor problem or just the blower/motor. Ive been reading solutions for problem on the A/C blower still blowing air but speeds...


The blower motor resistor is usually only switched into the circuit for the lower speeds and for the fastest speed the resistor is bypassed so I guess the motor needs to be replaced if it does not work in any position. However, sometimes the blower motor is not protected by a fuse but by an automatically resetting sealed circuit breaker usually located not far from the motor. The circuit breakers dont fail very often, If the fan works for a few seconds and then stops and then does the same thing several minutes later then the fan motor definitely needs replacing.

The airconditioning fan runs for a few seconds then quits. The rear operates fine.


Sounds like your blower motor has quit if it is inop on all levels. If high speed works and the other speeds do not, then its probally the rheastat or resistor pack

Heater not working


The problem is probably the blower motor resistor. I'm not sure where yours is located exactly. They can be on the firewall under the hood or some are near the blower motor under the dash.

It is most likely the switch or the blower motor or the speed control resistor assy or solid state speed control, not sure which you have, check the blower first ( when it stops running) then the switch with a 12 volt test light to see if voltage is present. does this happen at all blower speeds??
