Question about 1999 Lincoln Town Car

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

About a week after I got my car I hit some bumps and my fan went out, kicked back in and then out again. The blower motor was tested when taken out of the car and it worked fine. The car produces AC/Heat just fine but will not blow it out on eather setting (bi-level, dash vents, etc.) or speed, totally dead. I have been told the blower motor resistor is a very common problem. I just want to ask anybody on here!! Thanks

    Even with the blower motor having tested out good after the problem occured? I did put another one in after everything went south on me, this is why I thought it was ok. I have also heard a possible bad ground wire.

    Nothing

    Now I can select bi-level/defrost and all the others and the air will trickle out of where I select. Wow, this is getting deep. I will let everybody know what happens when its all over, hopefully this week! Thanks everybody for the help!

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.

The AC cooling fan should come on when the AC is turned on. This is not happening. The vehicle is a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country 3.8 liter van.Any ideas? Relay appears to be fine.


In some vehicles, just because you turn on the A/C..the fan does not come on...and some, when you set the A/C to on, you have to make the fan blow to make the A/C compressor work.. Sounds like,maybe, the blower motor resistor may be bad.. they are easy to change and not too expensive..You should be able to buy one at ( some will install it for you - if you are real sweet) :

When I turn on my heat or air, nothing happens. There is a slight hint of heat or AC coming out of the vents when I have it set at 4. It will occasionally work, if I hit a bump just right, and it kicks...


If I'm reading this correctly- your blower isnt working? the fan doesn't blow? If the blower comes on over hard bumps, probably the blower motor is bad. More common is blower resistor, but try to find motor & bang on it while switched on...if it comes on, the motor is bad.

Have heat but fan for heater and defroster do not work all the time, comes on occasionally when hit bump or something but will go off again.


Check the connections at the blower motor for loose or melted connections on the plugs and check the blower resistor for the same conditions....hope you find it good luck

My ac only works when i hit a huge bump and never again


I've had a similar problem. For me, the armature had some bad spots... or the bearings were going bad. So, I'd open the hood and tap the motor with a rubber mallet. Then, I'd reach through the open passenger window to feel if the air was coming from the vent. This would work very well until the blower motor finally went completely bad.
