EVERYTHING electrical, on a car or otherwise, has a fuse. That is the first place to look. Secondary , fans are usually not hard to find or replace. Check the ground (loose mounting screws on the fan) first, before replacing.
start the engine then turn blower on full and then reach under the passenger side LHD vehicles and thump motor with a clenched fist ,the brushes often stick and thump clears it and it works again for a while ,new motor 196 euros plus tax
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 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ignition-Switch-Cables-Wires-PEUGEOT-206-CITROEN-XSARA-PICASSO-Lock-Barrel-Plug-/121038091531?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item1c2e6eb50b
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
