Question about 1997 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

Need to get my wifes car heater blower working again.

The last mechanic installed a 2 speed switch to bypass the dash controls that go to heater/blower. The switch that IS installed now burnt out as my wife kept it on the low setting which caused the switch to overheat and NOT FUNCTION! I can not find a switch like this anywhere. I just want the heater to blow air, even if it starts when the car turns on. Any help?

CHECK THE BLOWER MOTOR RESISTOR ON THE EVAP BOX. MOST LIKELY IT IS BAD. AFTER YOU REPLACE IT THROW AWAY THE 2 SPEED SWITCH AND RESTORE WIRING BACK THE WAY IT SHOULD BE.

To fix the AC unit which blows hot air all the time. Seems like you have a small leak in the system or the AC compressor has gone out. Suggest you try recharging the unit. Make sure you have the correct R-22 or 134A freeon. If this work for a few days then have the leak fixed, if this doesn't work replace the compressor. Check Ebay for the compressor i obtained one for $100.00. Cost $450 at Auto Zone.

SOURCE: what is the function of the idle speed control valve?

The idle air control (IAC) valve assembly on a combustible engine monitors and manipulates the amount of controlled air moving around the throttle plate. The IAC valve is managed by the electronic control module (ECM) of the engine, which calculates the position of the IAC valve. Voltage pulses called counts extend and retract an internal conical-tipped shaft called a pintle inside the IAC valve. When the pintle is extended, the cone-shaped tip positions itself closer to the air inlet and restricts the amount of air allowed to pass through the throttle, building up more air around the throttle plate to increase the rpms of the engine. When the pintle is retracted, it moves away from the inlet and allows more air into the throttle away from the throttle plate, decreasing the rpms. The IAC valve operates and adjusts constantly while the engine is running to help prevent the engine from stalling or surging. This will not cause the engine to misfire!! Hopefully this helps

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.

SOURCE: Heater wont blow hot air in my 1998 Lincoln Navigator

the computer that controls the deflector motor are not responding and opening the door for heat, I'm sure you have climate control,check the temp setting sensor to the computer input first

I have replasteb the heater/ac blowermoter and restester checked the bender door working and the ac/heater is still not working Why isn't it working????


What exactly isn't working? the blower motor? If so then you may need a new blower motor harness from the switch to the blower, the connector burn up (under sized wiring) at the dash control head, you will also need a new blower speed control switch.

My Wife's care overheats and the heater only blows out cold air.


check that the thermostat is in correctly as it will cause no circulation but overheating. have a compression test done to eliminate head gasket /cracked head. There could be a blockage in the heater core but I am thinking that by passing the heater fan he has also by passed the actuator( coolant valve) for the heater core. Water pumps suffer from bad bearings and very seldom anything else. check that he hasn't blocked off the water to the heater core as well
the throwing back of the coolant is the boiling of the coolant in the block ( bad head gasket) due to lack of circulation. It may be a blocked radiator as flushing doesn't fix the blocked cores . If that is the case a new radiator is in order.

Need to find a similar switch to the one that previous mechanic used to bypass the heater blower controls at dash


TRY RADIO SHACK. MOST PEOPLE WHO BUILD PROJECTS LIKE SWITCHES GO TO RADIO SHACK. I HAD A SIMILAR PROBLEM AND THAT WORKED FOR ME. OR IF YOU WANT THE EXACT SWITCH THAT YOU HAD TRY A JUNK YARD LIKE LKQ, (352) 746-3011 IS THE CUSTOMER SERVICE NUMBER.
GOOD LUCK.

High speed doesn,t work on heater switch.


Pull the heater control panel out of the dash and inspect the blower speed control switch, look for signs of a burnt connector to the switch, it will be discolored looking, if this is the case replace the switch and install a repair connector

The fan speed selector switch control only works on the highest speed. When I put the switch to the lower speeds there is no air, and I can't hear the motor working. It's as if it is off in the lower fan...


Hello Imrevoy.
When this symptom happens your blower motor resistor has gone open circuit.
When on the high fan position it sends full battery power to the fan so it bypasses the resistor.
That's why, now how to repair?
Here's the manual instruction.

  1. REMOVE GlOVE COMPARTMENT DOOR
  2. REMOVE ENGINE ECU
    1. Disconnect the wire harness clamps.
    2. Disconnect the connectors.
    3. Remove the 2 bolts and engine (and ECT) ECU.

  1. Two way flow heater models only: REMOVE AIR DUCT (Motor cover)
    1. Disconnect the control link.
    2. Disconnect the connector clamps.
    3. Remove the screw.
    4. Release the claw and remove the air duct.

There you are, I hope your repair goes well.

Cannot control my AC blower on my 2001 Lincoln


sounds like your switch contacts are shorted closed.. try disconnecting the switch for inspection and use a volt ohm meter to inspect switch across contacts...

What will make a blower in a car only work on high 0n a 1996 sunfire


Could be two things. Heater control..or heater switch. Or the moter is not recieving the reostat info from control. Check at heater wher wires go into it..as you change positions of switch you should see a voltage drop or increase, if u do then the moter is bad...if u do not then replace the heater control unit. :)

Heater fan only works on high speed


usually when the blower motor gets old its starts to draw more current to run. which can pop fuses, burn out resistors and melt wires. also when you go to replace the resistor check the connector for signs of melting or burning you may end up having to replace that conector
