Question about 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis

1 Answer

2001 Merc Marq automatic ac blower motor stopped working. I wired blower directly to battery with a fused switch. This has worked for past 9 months----but, now the compressor stays on when the switch is on. The ac clutch is disengaged when the switch is off, but if you turn the switch on (engine off) the clutch locks in. When the engine is running the compressor evaporator lines frost up unless the ac is on full blast. Do I need a new control panel---or are there fuses or relays that are causing the problem? Thanks, Jesse East

Check the fuses and blower motor resister first. Some systems don't have resisters. Use blower motor speed control instead.


SECTION 412-04: Control Components 2001 Crown Victoria/Grand Marquis Workshop Manual
REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION Blower Motor Speed Control Removal and Installation

  1. Disconnect the wire harness connector.
  1. Remove the screws and remove the blower motor speed control.

  1. To install, reverse the removal procedure.





  • The blower motor is inoperative—EATC
  • Fuse.
  • Circuitry open or shorted.
  • A/C blower motor switch.
  • A/C blower motor resistor.
  • A/C blower motor.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Electronic Automatic Temperature Control Module Self-Test
  • The EATC module self-test will not detect concerns associated with data link messages like engine coolant temperature or vehicle speed signals. A diagnostic tool must be used to retrieve these concerns.
  • The EATC module self-test will detect concerns in the system control functions and will display hard diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) in addition to intermittent diagnostic trouble codes for concerns that occur during system operation. The vehicle interior temperature should be between 4° and 32°C (40° and 90°F) when carrying out the self-test. If the temperatures are not within the specified ranges, false in-car temperature sensor DTCs will be displayed.
  • The self-test can be initiated at any time. Normal operation of the system stops when the self-test is activated.
  • To enter the self-test, press the OFF and FLOOR buttons simultaneously and then press the AUTOMATIC button within two seconds. The display will show a pulse tracer going around the center of the display window. The test may run as long as 30 seconds. Record all DTCs displayed.
  • If any DTCs appear during the self-test, follow the diagnostics procedure given under ACTION for each DTC given.
  • If a condition exists but no DTCs appear during the self-test, refer to the Symptom Chart Condition: The EATC System Is Inoperative, Intermittent or Improper Operation.
  • To exit self-test and retain all intermittent DTCs, push the blue (cooler) button. The control will exit self-test, retain all intermittent diagnostic trouble codes and then turn OFF (display blank).
  • To exit the self-test and clear all DTCs, press the DEFROST button. The vacuum fluorescent display window will show 888 and all function symbols for one second. Then, the EATC control assembly will turn OFF (display blank) and all DTCs will be cleared.
  • Always exit the self-test before powering the system down (system turned OFF).
  • Intermittent DTCs will be deleted after 80 ignition switch ON cycles after the intermittent condition occurs.

1983 Chevrolet C10 Silverado: The AC compressor and heater blower motor fan will not come on.


The brown wire at the speed switch is the power wire. Powers is then directed to the blower motor resistor throught the orange, lt blue and yellows wires. The blower motor receives power through the orange wire. Check for power at the fuse with the key on. If there is no power the problem could be the ignition switch or the wiring in between the switch and the fuse block

Air conditioning and blower stopped working, all fuses checked good.Is there a common feed to these two circuits?


The answer is that there is dirt dust and fuzz built up in the brushes of the blower motor. Had to figure this one out myself. Remove glove box, carefully disassemble bottom of blower motor, remove brush cap and brushes clean up mess and reassemble. Not for a novice but if you're a thinker you can figure it out. Mine has worked every time since. The Pontiac guys had no clue wanted to replace motor.

2001 monte carlo blower motor stops working with heat or ac


Check all fuses using a test light. If good, turn on fan and check for power at the blower motor connector. There all the wires there as each one is for different speed. If good, blower might be bad. If no power, check switch itself for continuity. Keep me informed.

Mercury grand marquis,ls,2001. the ac blower is not working. I jumped the fan direct from the battery and it works. How can I by pass the climate control and install a manual switch. I beleive the climate...


Have you checked the fuse under the dash. You can run power directly from the battery as you did to test the blower just make sure you use a high amp rated switch and make sure you install an inline fuse rated no more than ten amps if you use say 14 guage wire. Let me know how it goes good luck.

2001 Nissan Sentra A/C Blower Not working


I enjoyed the same problem on my 2001 Nissan Sentra three months after I moved to Florida from New England. It is not a fuse; the fan would not work at all if it was a fuse. Your problem is the fan motor resistor behind the glove box. The classic symptoms are that the fan will not operate except on 4 (full speed). You technically could replace it on your own but I took it to my Nissan dealer and had it replaced for under $100, parts, labour, tax, and coffee.
