Probably a blown fuse or a miswire. Pull the radio and revert to stock. If the fan works carefully re-wire the radio with a good diagram.
if the fan is still dead with stock radio setup you may have a short, bad relay or bad temperature switch.
if you understand electrical get a tester and start snooping.
see if any of the manuals contain good wiring diagrams.
if not its best to leave it to the pros. You dont want your car to go up in flames. If you are super concerned about a fire, disconnect your battery when the car isnt in use. SpoonerTuner com Free downloadable Honda Acura Factory Service Manuals...

SOURCE: Blower AC fan not working.

Hope you have both fixed your problem by now; my system has been down.

In most auto applications, the bearings of small fans and motors are made of sintered phosphor bronze with graphite or petroleum lubricant embedded in it.
Since there isn't much load on these, the bearings can outlast the rest of the car but they do have a tendency to get gummy and since the fan motor doesn't have much torque, it may have trouble overcoming the stickiness and start turning.

If it wasn't for the buried location of most blowers, it would be a simple job to flush out the bearings with a penetrating lubricant such as WD-40 that is mostly volatile and doesn't leave much residue behind to complicate (gum up) things again.

This problem is common to some computer cooling fans too although many of the small CPU cooling fans actually have PLASTIC bearings!
Including some that were clearly marked as 'ball bearings.'

SOURCE: The blower fan stopped working this morning. No

You can take a look at your fuses and see if your fuse is burnt out or if that not the case and the fuses are fine then it sound like blower motor is shot.

My radio has an aux button, but no aux jack, is one hidden somewhere for use in different model style, ie sle, lx


if you have aux button there is a plug wire that mite be in the dash of the car, you could go to the radio manufacture website see if you can find the users manual, or installation guide, operational manual, the aux mite be a wifi option on other device of similar radio, that radio may have many versions and the version you got does not have that option with the cheaper version of radio that was installed when the car was made.
go to manufactures website, service, make, model,
it may need drivers to run the aux.

Won't start. key works in aux position but not when turned all the way


If you have power in aux position(ex.)radio works but doesn't when you put the key in the start position,the ignition switch is bad,the contacts are warn out for starting/cranking&run positions,these are used everytime you start your car,but auxillary is ony used once in awhile(ex.)your sitting listening to music while waiting for someone to come,but if you do have radio in the run position,but no cranking/starting you could have a blown resistor on fire wall or fuse for ignition,or the starter has called it quits,good luck I don't know if the starter is clicking rapid or just one click or just no power not cranking or cranking a better description of everything that happens will make this alot easier

Playing my ipod on AUX mode????!?!?!?!?!!!!??


HELLO, ON THE IPOD BOX ARE SEVERAL NUMBER CODES. THEY HAVE TO BE SET TO THE RIGHT NUMBERS ON OR OFF BEFORE THE FACTORY RADIO WILL READ THE BOX. ONCE THE CORRECT NUMBERS ARE SET FOR YOUR VEHICLE THE AUX BUTTON WILL WORK JUST FINE. IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE BOOK WITH THE CODES IN IT. JUST COUNT THE WIRES ON THE ADAPTOR AND THE LOCATION OF THE PINS THEY CONNECT TO. THEN PUSH ONLY THOSE PINS UP IN THE ON POSTION. GOOD LUCK!
