98 contour heater worker stopped working

I checked the fuses and relay under the dash, they are good. Where is the heater blower and what is the easiest way to get to it to check?

    Thanks for the response. Found the motor, unplugged it. Ran a direct to the battery, nothing. Put a tester to the wire, got the light. That's telling me it is the motor. To take it out, I just had to turn it counter clockwise and push up on the one clip. Pop, out it came. Thanks again.

It's uner the dash, alot of time packages/people will loosen its one wire. If it also will not just blow on fan and is indead plugged in and has 12volt measuerd to ground it's a new fan motor you'll need.

It is probably the blower itself. If the fuse and relay are good, I would say it is.

I have a 1998 ford contour and the past few weeks i have smelt somewhat of a burning rubber odor.then all of a sudden my heat wont work any ideas? fuse looks good.looking for ideas before i start replacing...


If you aren't getting any airflow out of the heater, your blower motor had a sticky bearing and overheated until it blew its thermal fuse, the motor resistor burned out, or something fried in the heater-A/C controller.

I've never looked under the hood of a Contour, but many cars have the blower motor mounted on the engine side of the firewall, and some of these have the connector out there also. Otherwise, you'll have to crawl under the dash. Once you find the blower connector, you can test the system before you buy parts. First, unplug the blower connector, then (with the car turned on and set so the heater could run if it was working) check the voltage* between the connector pins and ground (not the motor half of the connector!). If you get voltage (which pin has voltage will depend on fan speed settings), then check the motor and any resistors mounted with it. If you don't, look for a separate blower motor resistor, then check the control if necessary.

*Use a voltmeter (preferred) or a small 12 V lightbulb. The "screwdriver spark draw test" used by some amateurs is potentially hazardous and destructive, especially if there are solid-state controllers in the circuit.

Check the fuse box in the car first then if that dont work check the fuse block under the hood also check for a bad relay. And if that dont fix it you may need a blower motor
