Question about 1998 Ford Escort
Blower not working on my 1998 Ford Escort
Ok, first off, check the fuses under the dash. If they're all good, does the blower work only on high speed? If yes, then you have a bad blower motor resistor, which is located under the hood, near the blower motor itself. If the motor doesnt work at all at any fan speed, make sure the wiring harness that plugs into the motor under the hood is clean and tightly installed. If it still doesnt operate, sometimes tapping on the blower motor housing will kick it on, but if that doesnt work, you may have to replace the blower motor. They are available aftermarket, and arent usually too expensive.

Check Fuse F20 on central fusebox, if OK Look For Heater blower speed resistor board located under bonnet (not in the passenger footwell as claimed by many). Look for a plastic cover just behind the bulkhead seperating the engine compartment and the wiper mechanism. In my case it was the earth terminal was corroded
