Are you sure it's the switch itself that's gone bad? Does it work on certain speeds and not others? It's more common for the resistor pack which controls your fan speeds to go bad. It's located under the glovebox.

Blower fan n orkn in my 95 jetta and cant fid a fuse ohe panel that says blower fan


Heater is controlled by a fan switch located in your dash panel, a resistor and a blower motor. If the fan is not working the first place to check is the resistor which is located behind the dash panel in the plenum. The way to check this is remove the plug and insert a jumoer wire, if the fan runs the resistor is bad.

The heater blower motor on a '92 transport has been replaced but quit working again. Is there a resistor that has possibly gone bad? And if so where is it located?


THE BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR CONTROLS ALL SPEEDS EXCEPT HIGH . IF IT DOESN'T WORK ON ANY SPEED, IT MUST BE A BAD MOTOR, OR BAD FUSE OR A BAD SWITCH. IF YOU HAVE HIGH ONLY, THE RESISTOR MAY BE THE PROBLEM & IS PROBABLY UNDER THE DASH, NEAR THE BLOWER MOTOR.

Blower swith in position 1,2,3 no blower, in


Check the cover for the environmental cabin filter. It is located on the far right side of the cowling right below the right windshield wiper. There are a few torx screws that secure the cover and then it pulls out to reveal the cabin filter. The cover (being poorly designed by VW) cracks and during rain the rain runs off the window and soaks the cabin filter. The water from the soaked filter then drips down into the blower motor and shorts out the resistor module at the bottom of the blower motor. The blower will continue to operate at full speed because it is operating on an open circuit without need for resistance for the resistor pack. There is a small access "panel" at the bottom of the blower motor you will need to remove in order to see the problem, you should see a frighteningly burned looking module in there. Good Luck! Hope this helps!

1998 VW Can You Tell Me Where The Blower Motor Is?


Under the right side of the dash usually covered with a little trim. The motor is just twisted in and locked with a tab. Unplug it, pull down the tab lightly and unscew the motor.
