Look for a broken plastic vacuum line under hood, vacuum is what controls the heater controls inside the car

Location and procedure of replacing blower on 94 explorer

I assume you're talking about the blower motor that blows your hot/cold air. In my 2001 explorer it is located under the hood up against the firewall on the passenger side. The casing for it is circular and maybe 10 inches or so in diameter. It has about 4 small screws that hold the cover on and an electrical connection to disconnect. The replacement part is about $30 at a parts store.

1998 Ford Explorer. Heating / Air Cond.

You are deffently haveing some electrical issues. These usually result from bad ground. The fact you are experiencing so many at the same time make me want to ask the following question. How long have you owned this vehicle, and was it a swimmer (flood damaged)? If not, I believe I would start by checking under the hood on the drivers side where the relays are located. Start by making sure all wire connectors are tight. If so, then check the relays. You may want to pull them out, one at a time so you don't confuse where they go. Sometimes just taking them out and putting them back in is enough to make a better connection, some times that is, Try that for now I'll write more later when I have more time and I find out more info from you about your vehicle.

91 explorer heater not blowing air

The blower motor is located under the hood on the passengers side next to the hood hinge on the firewall. But, check your blower motor resistor first. The resistor is usually the trouble maker. It is located next to the blower motor. It should have 2 screws holding it onto the heater housing. Also an electrical connector. I sincerely hope that this will get it working again. Best wishes to ya.
