Question about 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe

Fan switch stopped working 1 mth after replacing the resistor

When i purchased this car the fan only worked on high, I replaced the resistor, worked great all of a sudden yesterday morning nothing happens when you switch it to any position. I checked the fuses and they seem to be fine. Just wondering which direction to try first.

Thank You!! Dean

1) Check for +12v power from the fan select switch at the resistor pack - (If +12v is available there you may again have a faulty resistor pack).
2) Apply +12v directly to the fan motor to check that it runs ok.

Hevac fan motor works only on high, replaced switch panel and resistor only worked then resistor burned out


The winding in the motor may have a short. drawing too much current when trying to run on a lower speed.

Blower fan not working


The resistor bank is bad for slow speeds, the switch is bad for high speed. In your test, you have voltage, but the switch wont carry the amps, to run high speed. Open circuits will not blow fuses. Replace both switch and resistor bank for all speeds. Make sure to clean leaves and trash from fan housing and see if fan spins freely.

Air condition and heat won't work


Check to see if you are getting voltage to the blower motor if you are the motor is bad if not check the fan speed switch. 1 2 3 or low medium high if you get voltage going to the switch but not from replace the switch if you have voltage from switch check the blower motor resistor the although with the blower resistor you commonly have a high fan speed in the max setting and the lower speed settings don't work wich would make you think 1 2 3 are not working but 4 is. That is why it is best to check all parts to make sure the part you do replace needed to be replaced

A/c blower stop working all speeds, check have power, ground out speed sensor and fan comes on, replaced speed sensor, now fan just works on high when wiggling fan switch, I replaced fan switch, now...


Depending on the year and model, you should have a resistor that controls fan speed. Not sure what a speed sensor is.
On most import cars, the speed is controlled by the ground circuit. If you have power and the fan will run if you ground it, check the fan switch again and the resistor. Then look at the ground for the switch.

Question:If the 30 A. fuse on a 2002 focus dash blower motor is good,and the thermal resistor is replaced, then it must be a faulty speed switch?


Don't know where you got your info . The heater blower motor electrical B+ power comes from Fuse F 64 a 40 amp fuse . This goes right to the blower motor on the green with orange stripe wire , The black with red stripe wire goes to the switch for high speed . There is Splice 24 that ties into the black with red stripe wire. The splice 24 turns into a black with orange stripe wire . An this wire goes to the blower motor resistor . All the switch does is route the B+ voltage through the different resistors to ground .

Thermal resistor "usually" stops working is because of faulty fan speed switch ???? Totally not true , resistor assemblies fail because of the heat associated with dropping voltage across the resistors , That is why they put the resistor assembly in the air box . Air blows over to cool the resistors . The switch is nothing more then a way to direct different speeds to ground .

Rather then listening to other people ,why not learn the right way to test electrical circuits .

Cool fan low doesn't work. Doesn't appear to be


It needs to have the blower motor resistor card replaced.
It still works on high speed because on the high setting the voltage does not go through the resistor.
The resistor is mounted beside the blower motor and is easy to replace.
There you are, thank you for using FixYa.

Blower fan has stopped working except on high


The motor still works. A DC motor is speed controlled with a resistor. Luckily, the resistors that do this are mounted on the motor housing. See the following link. The resistor pack is quoted as costing about $10.

If the heater fan on your car only works on "High" the problem is more than likely the resister assembly in your blower circuit or poor connections at the resister assembly. When the switch is in the "high" position the current does not flow through the resister assembly it flows directly to the coil of the blower relay. When the switch is in "low", "medium 1", or "medium 2" position the current flows through 1, 2, or all 3 of the resistors in the resistor assembly which results in the 3 different lower speeds. Check the resister assembly and replace if needed.

A/C fan switch only works on high. When this first started it would work sometimes on the 3 other settings when it wanted to. Now it only works on high. The Dealer ship service department told me that it...


The solution was replacing the plug leading to the resistor. It is part number pt1231 from acdelco. I highly recommend this and am 99% sure that this is your solution. thanks
