Replaced resistor pack on citroen xsara blower motor now doesn't come on

With old reistor pack blower is on full power whatever the control is set to. Have tried 3 new resistor packs from various sources but with each one the fan refuses to work at all. To get the fan to work I have to replace the old resistor pack but then I have no control over the speed of the fan

SOURCE: wiring diagram citroen xsara 2000

I see several different problems here.

First, installing aftermarket accessories like remote starts and alarm systems is asking for electrical problems with your vehicle. Those things are known to cause all kinds of problems including stalling, incorrect air/fuel ratio, and no-starts. Not to mention that the vehicle wiring harnesses usually get BUTCHERED in the process of installing them. They also make diagnosis of future problems (like stalling, no-starts, or computer fault codes) nearly impossible because the repair technician has no way of knowing if the aftermarket accessories are at fault or if it is being caused by a malfunction in the factory equipment.

Then, if you do not know where to start, it makes me question whether you should be messing with the electrical (and most likely, computer) circuits in your vehicle to begin with.

In addition to that, there is no way that anyone can help you to perform that task without having the instructions from the manufacturer of the system you are trying to install. Different systems tie in to different circuits in the vehicle. There is no way of knowing which vehicle circuits you are needing diagrams for. Did the system not come with instructions?

I have 2 recommendations for you:

1. Don't do it. If your vehicle is not equipped by the manufacturer with the options that you want, you are better off to save your money to buy a car that is.

2. If you choose to ignore recommendation number 1, I recommend that you seek the assistance of a qualified automotive repair technician in your area.

SOURCE: where is the throttle position sensor on a 2003 Citroen Xsara 2.0i

You diagnose a vehicles problem

No parts are ever installed until they
are tested & found to be defective.

The is no guessing or thinking on any
product,just knowledge of how it works
& how to test.

If your unaware of a TPS Sensor when the name
& location are the same world wide,you need a repair shop

On the throttle body

Picasso 2.0hdi wiring diagram


Do not mess around with this as it is a complete computer unit behind the facia and expensive and the official wiring diagram just shows a block with connections and no colours or numbers but then it is a haynes book so say no more ,it just says typical wiring diagram .Now what you can do is find a three or four click switch from a lod 60s model car then wire it directly into the motor under the passenger side dash where their is the resistor pack.Or pay the money for a new unit ,i also do this for the AC on and off as well ,YES I AM cowboy i admit i can and do bodge these things but wait till you find out the price ,the blower motor is 198+tax alone

Picasso heater blower not working


Hi all. Yes this is a very common issue. 2 distinct issues in fact are common with the aircon.
1 you get fan on certain settings only. This is the resistor gone and johnjohn2 has identified the fix for this above. This is usually (although not always not intermittent and so you will usually lose all other settings over night and they don't come back
2 you get no fan activity at all. This starts to happen intermittently and then gets more frequent until the fans won't work at all. The fix for this is expensive through Citroen but cheap if you get the part off ebay. It is the ignition switch cable which has a fault. A very common issue. You need to remove the ignition switch and replace the cable from it. Work is not long but plugs can be tight and fiddly.
here is the link for the part

My car is RAV4 toyota blow fan not working on 1,2,3 but #4 working only I replace switch but same as before,Please would give what I do next. Thank you.


Sounds like you have a bad blower motor resistor (manual HVAC). The resistor is just that a set of resistors in serious that drop voltage to regulate fan speed. Speed one uses all the resistors to drop the voltage the most. Speed for doesn't use the resistors so full power can be used by the blower motor to make it work at full speed.

The resistor is typically located near the blower motor under the passenger side of the dash. and will have 4-5 wires going to it.

My heater has stopped working and ive checked the fuses and its not them what should i try next


Hi,
There is a blower motor resistor , located in the air duct coming from the blower assy. This will have 4/5 wires attached which determine the speed of the motor blower. This will determine the fan speeds depending on the resistor combinations selected. Sometimes the fastest blower speed will work because it has no resistance and gets full voltage.
You can also check the plug going into the fan assy , the plug may have reecieved a knock from a foot and become loose! A circuit tester will be a great help also . Good Luck

Locate blower motor resistor on 2006 Passat 2L Turbo


The resistor is not on the motor. Go into the passenger foot well and look underneath the dashboard right at the back. There you will find a foam cover that just pulls out. Remove the foam and you will see a clip on connector plugged in a white insert. The white insert is the resistor. Firmly pull the white insert out of the dash and the resistor is in your hand

Blower motor doesn't work and has no power to it


Check the blower multispeed control resistor pack is not faulty.
The resistor pack is usually located in the air ducting, in the blower fan airflow.
Basically, +12v power is supplied (via fuse) to the fan speed control switch, which then passes via the selected speed control resistor, to the fan motor. Often a interface relay is used to switch the blower motor high current.
