Question about 1999 Buick Century

1 Answer

AC fan runs after ignition switch is turned off....runs battery down to zero....

I pulled a 10a fuse in the fuse box in the engine compartment that the diagram said "AC" on it but the fan kept running.

    I finally figured out where the fuse box was inside the passenger compartment and pulled a 25a fuse that the diagram indicated was for the "high blower". The blower stopped. I guess I'll put it in when I need it and pull it when I park it. I'm guessing the problem is in a switch/relay or somewhere else in the system. The car is at our place in Florida and it has been about five months since I drove it. It possible that a number of things can go wrong in the system if it goes for many months without being driven.

If your car has HVAC where you set a temp (like 75) this is the automatic unit. The blower controller often fails and the blower will continue to run after the car is turned off.

SOURCE: AC does not engage when turned on

Take the glove box out. Behind the fuse box you will find a big gob of black tape, (it looks like a box shape all taped up. Take the tape off and you will find three inline fuse holders taped together. The AC fuse is the 10 amp one.

How do I wire the radiator fan to the ignition high circuit fuse?


simply buy a on off switch 30 amp or better automotive run this switch directly from the battery directly to the hot wire on the fan motor, FYI In some instances this will cause over run or Idling on after the ignition switch is turned off the fans produce enough back power to barely keep the engine running if this happens just take it alll ! apart and go get the proper parts immediately the run on can cost you a timing chain and much more.making sure to install a 30 amp fuse between the switch and the fan motors also make sure if you have 2 fans one for the radiator and one for the evaporator coil for your AC wire this one up to so your system does not over pressurize the AC system and possibly damage your compressor.Do not leave it this way long as temp differences will eventually not be in sync and will over heat and possibly damage your engine also running it this way will be harder on fuel also so get it fied soon as you can. thanks the FixYa team

2004 Mazda Tribute, power mirrors and radio stopped working at the same time. I have check all fuses in the passenger compartment and all the cartridge fuses I can see in the engine compartment. I do


With the ignition switch in the ACC or RUN position, check for 12 volts on the output (BLK/PNK wire) of 10A FUSE 8 in the central junction box. This is the supply line to the mirrors.

While at the central junction box, check for 12 volts on the output of 10A FUSE 27 (ORG/LT GRN) and 10A FUSE 19 (RED/YEL) if there is a separate subwoofer. Check for 12 volts on the output of 5A FUSE 12 (YEL/BLK) to verify that the accesory relay is energized.

2000 kia sportage, blower fuse location


Let's start with the passenger compartment fuse box. If you checked the 30A HEATER fuse the blower motor should run at various speeds as you operate the blower switch. If you checked the 10A REAR WIPER fuse (!), and also checked the 30A ADD (?) fuse in the engine compartment fuse relay box, turning on the air conditioner should operate the A/C relay to turn on the condenser fan motor. If this doesn't solve your problem, you'll have to trace power through the various circuits.
