    Really it is not a good idea to bypass switches and wiring and especially not circuit protection. this could lead to some very bad news story. If you are unsure then you should have someone look at it who can test is for you and repair it. if by chance you were to bypass the circuit protection this would relay into a very serious fire hazard due to overheated wiring, etc. hope this will help you re-consider your choice.

You can buy a replacement fan switch for under 20.00 dollar and replace it yourself just remove the front bezel from dash it pulls out and then pull out the climate control unit and remove the small bolt that holds in the switch in place and disconnect the wiring then just reverse the process and you should have heat.

Have 1985 dodge ramcharger royal se 5.2L 318. A 30amp toggle switch had been wired to control the heaters blower motor and thats how I get my heat which is constantly on high. What part or parts should I...

Hello from cold Kentucky.
The system uses a fan switch, resistor, and probably a high blower relay.
In the high position, the switch powers a relay that powers the blower motor. Any lower speed goes thru the resistor.
The resistor is on the firewall or under the dash depending on if the truck has air cond.
You can look up a blower resistor on the auto parts websites to get a visual.

The heater fan stopped working and I want to know how to get to it is it under the hood or under the dash for a 1994 chevy cavalier

The blower motor is located under the hood in the engine compartment on the rightside on the firewall, also check the blower resistor this goes bad often and it will also stop the fan from working, test the blower, hook it to power and a ground if it turns on then its the resistor. hope this helps.

The heater on my 96 accord lx wont work. i hooked a toggle switch up and the blower and the hot and cold switch work but fan speeds do not. I was told it was a possible resistor problem. where do i look?

It is not a resistor you blower motor is going out it needs to be replaced. When fan speeds don't work as they should this is clearly the problem.

1997 TBird-AC fan stopped working

Are you sure it isn't in the switch itself? I believe the fan is under the hook on this car but I don't have my books here to know for sure. If you disconnect the plug to your heater motor and insert a test light inside of the plug that goes to the motor you could see if you have power there with the ignition switch on and heater blower fan switch on. The motor is about $30. to $50. but I definitely would test the motor before buying another one.
