On my vauxhall vivaro van, the fan heater isn't very good and when I turn it to number 4 it blows the fuse, the fuse is a 32amp how do I can the fan motor??

Usually on cars there is a blower motor resistor that changes the amount of amperage to the fan motor. If that is fried or shorted out than you could be receiving too much juice and piping your fuse. Either way there is some kind of short.

How to install a blower moter and fan

Well, here's the instructions from the service manual. The labor guide says this can be done in 1.6 hours...I don't see how, unless the instructions are wrong about having to remove the instrument panel. My thoughts are that if you are only doing the blower motor, the blower assembly will come out without pulling the dash. You probably only have to do a partial disassembly and remove the glove box and the glove box lower support.



Removal and Installation

1. Disconnect battery ground cable. Remove Instrument panel. (See Instrument Panel Removal) Disconnect resistor connector. remove blower assembly duct. Disconnect motor connector. Remove blower assembly

2. Remove blower assembly screws and blower motor assembly. Remove clip and fan from assembly. Separate motor case and remove blower motor. To install, reverse removal procedure.



1. Disable air bag system. See AIRBAG RESTRAINT SYSTEM article in ACCESSORIES/SAFETY EQUIPMENT SECTION. Disconnect negative battery cable. Scribe mating marks on steering wheel and shaft for installation reference. Using Steering Wheel Remover (J-29752) remove steering wheel. Remove steering cowl.

2. Remove instrument panel grilles and plug, or driving pattern indicator panel (A/T Models). Disconnect electrical connections. Remove instrument panel hood, instrument cluster ezel and instrument cluster. Remove hood release handle. Remove knee protector.

3. Remove dash fuse/relay block and side trim. Remove engine control module box. Remove radio console and glove box lower reinforcement. Remove speaker covers and glove box. Remove heater control panel knobs and cover. Disconnect heater control cables, and remove heater control panel. Remove illumination control knob. Remove instrument panel.


1. Install instrument panel. Install and adjust heater control cables. To complete installation, reverse removal procedure. Ensure mating marks on steering wheel and shaft align. Apply grease to contact ring and tighten steering wheel nut to 26 ft.lbs. (35 N.m).

Heater blower motor does not work all the time kia sedona 2.9 crdi ithink its the control knob but cant find out how to remove it

you need to gently remove the wood trim around center dash, there is a screw in the bottom of the ash tray to remove, then 4 screws to remove control center, each of the side wires have a small push buton on them to release, once free there are two screws on the back of the fan control knob.

The heater control knob will not work need to

disconnect the Neg battery terminal, however, make sure you have the reactivation code for the radio if you still have the original factory car stereo, this is important, if you do not have the code, the radio will be inoperative. carefully remove the defrost button from the panel face,disconnect the connector in the rear of the switch. remove the blower and temp controls by carefully prying them out, a small flat blade screwdriver works great. there should be 6 screws on the panel, once removed, pull the panel out far enough to remove/ disconnect the two wire connectors behind the assembly. once this is done, there are 5 screws on the back, remove and separate the heater/ac control assembly, replace and re-install as you have taken apart. this is how you would remove the assembly. i hope this solve your question.
