Question about 2001 Lincoln Town Car

Blower doesn't work

Replaced blower motor, resistor, fuse, relay, and ATC. There is one thing I can't identify. It's in the wiring just before the blower motor. T-shaped, two pin connector, and top is filled with a black plastic/bakelite. I can't get any fire across the pins. Any idea what this component is? Thanks.

    Turns out the part in the wiring harness I couldn't identify was actually the washer fluid reservior sensor. Nothing to do with the blower motor. Should've checked all the connections prior to taking all the wires loose. Also, I was mistaken when I said the resistor had been replaced. I misunderstood. It was actually the resistor that had gone bad. Once replaced, the a/c and the blower worked fine. Problem solved.

Sounds as if this is a connection that isn't required on your model,the manufacturer uses the same wiring harness on many different models so to keep costs down , the connector/s not required are blanked off hence the plastic/bakelite covering

SOURCE: Lincoln 2000 town car Blower doesn't work at HI-MED-LOW speeds...

it is called blower motor resistor , should be close to blower motor , you will see a plug type connector with two screws , remove the screws and there should be a resistor inside the cover for the motor, swap with new and reassemble

SOURCE: how do i get to the blower motor resistor

it is located on the heater box where the bolwer moror is there will be two screws holding it on the housing, look on the passenger side under the dash it will have 3 to 5 wires connected to it depending on the type of temp controller.

SOURCE: 1999 town car blower motor resistor.....maybe?

The Blower Motor Resistor is a common problem in your car but not for the problem you describe. When the Heat/AC won't blow on all speeds, the blower motor resistor is at fault. When air won't blow out of vents, bi-level, or floor the problem is the blend door actuator. This is vacuum driven and diverts the air to where you select. When air will only blow from one place (usually the defrost) then the blend door actuator is the problem. This can sometimes be corrected if there's a vacuum leak (usually under the hood in front of the passenger you'll find the vacuum line and can trace it backward to find a leak). If no leak can be found, the blend door actuator itself is defective and needs replacement.

Relays are normally located under the hood in a protective plastic box. Good Luck Ned

SOURCE: 1995 Lincoln town car blower motor resistor

it's most likely the blower resistor, which is located under the hood on the passengers side in the evaporator case. if you have manual a/c heat control this is a cheap fix, if you have auto temp control it is a very expensive part [around 200.00] good luck

Blower not working


There is relay for the blower motor in the front control module also ! ! It could also be the blower motor resistor ! Do you know how to use a volt meter ? Check for battery voltage at the dark blue wire at the blower motor , if you have voltage there the relay is good ,test it with the blower switch on ! if you have power there it is the blower resistor or bad ground ! One more question ,is yours auto temp. control ? That adds a little more complexity to it !

Blower motor


I'm showing a blower relay and a resistor used on models with manual ac control.
The blower motor is grounded and the fan switch provides power thru the resistor. So you have a 40amp blower fuse that handles high thru the relay, then a 30amp HVAC fuse that powers the blower thru the fan switch.
Do you not have power from the resistor to the blower motor on the purple wire ?

Fan motor blower not working


According to the wiring diagram, there are only three components to the system. The blower motor, the resistor, and the speed control switch.
The resistor gets power from the switch which is powered by a 25amp fuse. On high setting the resistor is bypassed and the blower motor gets power from a 30amp circuit breaker. The blower is grounded to the body. The fuse is hot in the "run" position and the 30amp breaker is hot all the time.
So you should have power at the blower motor on one of the settings and a direct ground on the black wire.

Where is the blower motor relay on the 1994 Ford Econoline. The fan is going one speed - SLOW. I replaced the blower motor, because it was squealing, but that never solved the problem. I'm thinking it's...


On your vehicle, if it works on low speed, that eliminates the fuse, the blower motor relay and the blower motor resistor. All of the parts of the resistor must bee good for it to work on low. The relay supplies power to the motor and the controls provide the ground, so if the motor runs at all, it is not the relay or the fuse. The only thing left is the switch. Fords are bad about burning the wire connector that conects to the switch. You will most likely have to replace the switch and the connector. Both of these parts are widely avaiable at most aftermarket parts stores.

Heater fan just quit working. Cant find a fuse for it anywhere. Checked the relay and the switch and they seem fine.


Blower Motor not working for all speeds or not at all.

What does it take to get air to come out the vents?

1. Power from the battery or alternator, wiring thru a fuse and possibly an accessory relay to the switch

2. Switch and wiring to channel voltage to the appropriate resistor corresponding to the desired speed

3. Resistor set to reduce voltage to the blower for settings less than high

4. Final wiring to blower and blower itself

Because there is usually no relay between the switch and the resistor, all of the blower current runs through the switch. This sometimes causes the switch to overheat and fail over time. Depending on how the switch is designed, the failure may allow multiple currents to run to the resistor pack, and this may in turn cause the resistor pack to overheat and fail. An example of the circuit I'm describing is shown below:


88d29df.gif

Note that if the above switch was to contact both terminals 2 and 3 simultaneously, there would be more current than the resistor pack is designed for. This can burn the resistors and/or blow the thermal breaker. Also note that if the resistor pack fails, the blower can still run at full speed.

Troubleshooting: The last sentence above is a clue.

If your blower is working only on high speed, the likely cause is a failed resistor pack. However, because of the other discussion above, you should also troubleshoot the switch to see if it is the reason the resistor pack failed.

If the blower does not work at all, odds are that the problem is the fuse, relay, or the motor itself.

Repair: The resistor pack is installed in the air stream of the system to help cool the resistors. It is usually accessible from under the dash on the passenger's side or sometimes from the engine compartment along the firewall. It is identifiable by the connector with several wires coming out-some going to the switch and some to the blower motor. The resistor is replaced by unscrewing it from the duct and reinstalling the new resistor pack.

The blower is usually accessible from above the passenger

in the duct work where the blower motor attaches you will see the resister block. it is held into the duct work with two or three screws and there is a wiring going to it. undo the screws and pull it out carefully and replace it. your fan should work fine after that. be careful if the circuit is live as it does heat up alot.

Go to this site and you can get a copy of your owners manual. Just pic the owner's manual link in the left side task bar.
The relay is located in the interior fuse panel. It should show you a diagram of the fuse panel in the owners manual.
