86 subaru gl, control to heater/fan not working?

1986 subaru gl, the control to the heater/fan seems to have shorted out. i checked the blower fan and resistor (in working order), and mechanic suggested it might have something to do with the control module itself. Does this sound likely, and what steps do i take to go about fixing this?

The control module is just the switches panel. some times for the use, make not contact properly and have to be replaced. it a little hard because you have to take apart practically must of your dash panel covers to make room. and then take off radio and all you need to take off the control module but its no easy the hard wires connected to the control panel for the air diffusors almost always if you don't have the right tools and know how to do it, you will brake some plastic in the panel structure and later is practically impossible to put it back right with the new panel. so I recommend to hire some one that knows.

SOURCE: 2000 cherokee sport blower motor control

It is a bad blower motor resistor and it is mounted on the bottom of the A/C heater housing on the passenger side of the vehicle under the glovebox area. Hope this helps. Please rate this a fixya if it helps. Thanks.

SOURCE: 86 subaru gl wagon not firing.

I have the same problem with my 86 GL 4WD. One day it started to turn, and then lost all power. I couldn't even turn on the lights. I have played with the ignition switch wires, and gotten it to fire. I think there may be a short somewhere in the switch or the wires to the harness, but I have not isolated it yet. You might check your ignition switch and wiring...

SOURCE: fan blower stopped working

I had the same problem and Ia m working to resolve it.
You need to remove the blover under the glove box it's very easy to remove. 1) remove the glove box, 2) the metalic suport that it's hold by 4 screws and finally remove the 3 screws that holds the blower. Take it off and remove the coverplate of the motor ( 2 screws) and
check the brushes. In my case they were worn out. So you need to buy a new motor with the blower aprox $50 or try to replace the brushes.

SOURCE: Blower motor vent selection switch not working

the hvac selector switch in the dash may be the problem.You need to remove the switch and look at the connector on the back of switch,see if there are any burnt wires at the connector or switch.It's all electronic and the switches have been known to burn out on this and other model.

Blower vents on 86 regal


The blend door in the heater box itself is what directs the air to where it needs to go as per selector switch. The heater box is located under the dash.

HELP 86 GL-10 /getting hot


This can be a slipping belt, a worn out water pump, a damage fan or the worst of all a burnt cylinder head gasket. Turbos running at high pressures tend to blow the cylinder head gaskets. Also check the radiator.
