The heater fan on my 1993 f-350 has become really loud. I only have hi speed which I understand may be a resistor issue but how do I remove the fan and motor assembly to inspect it?


A heater blower motor resistor is an electronic device with three or more progressive resistors that allow the heater blower motor to operate at slower speeds. The highest speed of the heater blower motor is not controlled by the resistor, so when the resistor fails, the fan will often work on the highest speed setting, but not the lower speeds.
To resistor is generally located under the dashboard and under the hood, near the blower motor . The resistor's electrical connector is disconnected, the resistor is removed and the new resistor is installed. On some vehicles it may be easily accessible, and on others it may take partial dashboard removal to replace the resistor.
Look under the hood, generally the wiring for the Blower resistor is attached to the wiring to the blower motor itself
It's inboard & below the motor, near the accumulator. You can see it standing beside the passenger fender. it's the off-white connector behind the L heater hose above the vacuum reservoir & the white WARNING sticker

I have a ford focus 2001 wagon. My heater motor doesnt work on settings 1 -3 but works on setting 4. I have replaced the blower motor. I have also replaced the switch. Is there any thing esle i can try to...


Third time's a charm. Would have told you to check the resistor first. Doh!
If it's any consolation, a bad switch is usually what makes the resistor go bad, but your old motor is probably just fine--sell it on e-bay!
Now, if I could only tell you where to find the resistor. Somewhere along the heater box between the switch and the motor. The resistors actually hang inside the box for cooling. It looks like the pick below with wires coming out. Some wires go to the motor, some to the switch.
Find it, take connector off, take 2 screws out. Pull it out of the heater box. See, it's all burned up.
Pay autozone $50 for a new one and get back to your life.

05 GMC sierra heater blower stopped working. It used to work on setting 1-4 but lost 4 a couple weeks ago and now none of them work. Is this a bad blower , resistor or both?


The resistor is most likely bad but should still work on the highest setting.Would check pigtails to the resistor and to the blower motor for burnt or discolored wiring.You can try tapping the blower motor and wiggling the wiring harness too see if it will work on the highest setting. It is possible that the blower motor is bad as well typically when you lose the speed selection it is the resistor but you should always have high speed.

Ford fusion 2007, blown blower fuse, replaced fuse, works at highest speed only (highest of 4) the other three setings don't work.


hte blower resistor is shot, near the blower motor, have the blower motor checked my guess is that it requiring too much power to run, hence the blown fuse

My 2001 Ford Focus' heater/air dial has stopped working. The heater will only turn on "4" and the air conditioner will not come on. What is the problem?


Sounds like a burned resistor for your fan speed. 2- 8mm screws removes resistor check to insure coils are not broke.

The heaters only work when on setting 4 and i found out its due to a faulty blower resistor, where is the resistor located and how do you replace it on a Ford Focus 51 plate


In the dash, attached to the blower motor (follow the nosie of the blower when turned on... this will help you locate)
The resistor is a 4" long Green Ceramic part with pins coming off it.

Heater fan only works on fastest speed


Your blower motor resistor has gone bad, it should be located next to your blower motor in the car, held in place with a couple of screws, remove it and replace it. The resistor is responsible for making the blower motor run at slower speeds than high or (4). Let me know if this helps.

Car heater


i think you have a short in your blower motor. the resistor block which reduces also your speed could have damage also from the short of your blower.
