Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 2009 escape and the fan is not blowing air anymore when in second position. If I switch to 3 or 4 everything looks good and the air blows as it should for those positions but is getting too hot in the car. Thanks
If the blower does not run in the second position, but does on the other speeds, the problem is usually the resistor.

yes the heater controls are vacum however the blower motor is not. a new control panel is an option and may fix it. if it was my blazer i would first check the fuse boxes onder the hood and in the side of the dash driver side. if they are good i would go to the nearest auto parts store and buy a test light. this will aid you in making sure what the problem is before you go spending money on replacement parts. the blower motor is in one of two places. its most likely under the dash on the passenger side. there is a cover that you will have to remove directly under the glove box. once removed you should see a large red and a large black wire. these are the power and ground for the blower motor . in some gm's these wires go into a resistor. the harness plugs into the resistor and the blower motor wires come out of it. ok now that we are a little bit familiar with our suroundings the red wire i told you about is the hot wire if you ground the clamp on the test light to the door hindge. (make sure its a good ground by touching the positive batter terminal. if the test light lights its a good ground )now unplug the blower motor and touch the metal posts in the end of the plug that belong to the red wire. if it lights when the key is on and the blower control is on in all posisions you need a blower motor. if it does not then you need a blower motor resistor.

I know from experience that if the coolant is to low ( not just the freon levels in the compresor but the antifreeze/coolant level as well) the AC system will not cool and will blow hot. Check the coolant Antifreeze and freon levels, even with the Coolant being a little low my 1998 Ford E150 Van will blow hot. After you have ruled out of these possibilities and the chance it is the thermostat most likely the problem is what Ford calls the "Flap" it controls the air flow through the vent system when you switch from Heat to AC. When the Flap is working it closes off one systems air flow so as to not interfere with the current climate selection.
