Question about 1997 Chrysler LHS

1 Answer

Blower motor worked sporadically, then not at all

The blower sometimes worked well, squealed sometimes, then one day last week there was a terrible smell that I couldn't identify, but may have smelled a little like engine coolant. I checked all over for leaks and found none, then realized that the blower wasn't working at all. I found that the fuse was blown, but replacing it didn't work.
If I knew how to get to the motor to check it or replace it I would be happy. I'd also like to know if there may be another problem in the circuit, like the control switch. How would I test it?

    I checked under the hood and inside, under the dash. MNfisherman told me to look for three screws on the firewall. I could not find the blower motor at the firewall. Is access from under the hood or behind the dash? Please be a bit more specific.

The fan motor will need to be replaced. You can access it at the firewall. There will be 3 screws holding it on. The brushes inside the motor are shot and will need to be replaced. You can also hit up a junk yard.
If the brushes are shorted out, then the motor will short out causing you to blow fuse.

2004 crown vic. only 63K miles on her. AC/heat fan was sporadically working, now its done. AC was nice and cold, working fine. Is the fan a hard replacement if I were to find one at a parts yard?

Try to check the power and ground on the blower fan. If you missing the ground on the blower fan connector than most likely it is the blower fan resistor (controller), it is located under the hood close to back firewall behind left cylinder head.

Front blower motor works sporadically rear works fine

Might just be a bad blower motor. It takes it a while to spin fully after its on due to bad bushings in the motor. Take it out and see if it spins freely or not. Of not, replace it and all will be fine.

1998 Pontiac Grand Prix GT - Blower Motor will not blow in the lower speeds, High Speed (5) only. Resistor has been replaced 3 times in the last twenty four hours, blower motor has been replaced twice in...

Your ignition switch is bogus. High speed runs directly off the speed control but the lower speeds go thru the ignition switch. Do not know why but that is the way it is!!!!!!!!
Replace the ignition switch and you will be back in business.
