Question about 1999 Mazda Protege

Open Question

Fan on the Passenger side make loud grinding noise

The fan on the passenger side of my '99 Protege DX makes this loud grinding noise whenever I go over potholes or make a turn. It used to happen intermittently and I would "fix it" by turning off/on the fan. Recently, my workaround doesn't work anymore. The noise happens on a daily basis to the point I have to turn off the fan completely. Does anyone know what is wrong? Does it cost a lot to fix? Thanks in advance for your help!!

Look at the backside of the headlight after raising the hood remove the bulb with the plug attached and then remove the plug look at the connections in the plug it may be that there is a bad connection I would just replace the bulb chances are the filiment is broken or hanging on by a thread causing intermittent failure.

SOURCE: I have a 1997 mazda protege LX . I am suspecting

use a test light and probe the wires .some fans don't work both at the same time so it maybe necessary to let the car reach operating temp to see if there is power and ground to the fans.

SOURCE: have a 1997 mazda protege

The fans are a DC motor & will run in either direction

So you can't do anything wrong

One terminal goes to a wire from the battery positive,
the other you ground anywhere you like,as long as
it's metal

When I turn on my ac on high and medium a very loud rough grinding comes from under passenger side dash


You could have something caught in the interior air fan, it could be loose or broken, or it could have a bad bearing. Without knowing make, model and year, can't tell you much else to look at.

Auxiliary fan not kicking on (it has 2 fans, the driver's side cooling fan and the passenger side fan that runs intermittently that comes on when a/c or when heat is set to defrost setting stopped com


It won't cause any overheating, that fan is only suppose to come on when the a/c is on. Since it's cold, it's not going to come on because the engine has at least 2 sensors that tell the temp and it can see it's not needed. Now, if you turn it on during the summer and it doesn't come on and your a/c doesn't work, you may have blown the relay or your a/c may be low/out.

Air conditioning fan makes loud noise the faster you ru it.


Concerning your broken vent -- this can be caused by a broken linkage or a malfunctioning servo motor as well. these vent have air ducts the sway back and forth to adjust the dual air flow function. if the servo o linkages are malfunctioning or not connected for some reason, it will not allow total control of the air flow and temperature range. Now, if you have a combination of a flow error and temperature error as well, thai can be caused by a combination of the two.

In this case, you will need to inspect the linkages as well as the servo motor function as well. in addition, i would test the air temp sensors for there operational value. they control the temp when you adjust the coll or hot function.

Concerning the Loud noise coming from the blower fan---

This issue can be caused by a misalignment within the blower housing or, it can also be caused by some minor damage within the motor itself, causing it to rotate in a erratic manner, in return, forcing it to rub against the housing itself. the best solution here is to extract this blower fan housing and inspect for lose fan propeller and motor stability. replace parts accordingly.

PLease rate and have a great day:)

When car is running and fan comes on


Sonds like the fan to me. Yes, those are available separately. Water pump is internal inside of the timing cover and those are pretty bullet proof. Fan is most likely NG. Not that common. I have replaced only 1 in 12 years with Nissan.
