Check the fuse first; refer to the Owners Manual for the fuse (position 13, 5AMP); according with your comment this fuse is OK.

If the blower is completely dead and is not providing any air movement, the cause could be in the resistor block for the fan motor or the fan motor.

1.- If you have one or more blower speeds, the problem is the Resistor Block. This part (resistor block) controls the various speeds of the blower motor. It is located on the passenger compartment side of the blower housing and can be replaced in few minutes. You can find the part online for around $10.

2.- If you do not have any speeds, you should verify the Fan Motor works by pulling it and connecting it to a 12 volt DC power source. To pull the fan motor, you will have to remove the glove box to gain access to the 3 or 4 screws that hold the fan in place, although I did it without removing the glove box. The motor is attached to a large mounting plate that is at the bottom of the air plenum located behind the glove box. If you look up from the passenger floor you will see the motor hanging down. Once the connector is disconnected and the screws are out, you will have to turn the mounting plate to allow the motor to drop. Keep in mind the position as you pull it down as it needs to go back in the same twisting fashion.

If the motor is good and really spins up, then the problem is the resistor block is completely dead (replace it the resistor block)


Hope help with this.

2000 escort diesel van.interior heater has stopped working,checked fuse and its not that.any ideas ? any thoughts.cheers


likely your blower motor. but take connector off at blower, key on, htr on high. should have power at connector. check with a test light. If power is present, its your blower. If no power, and fuse is good, it's a wiring issue or your heater blower switch on the dash.

There is a fuse box inside the car to the left of the steering column. fuse 228 10 amp and fuse 208 40 amp. Check power to the blower motor connector. Check for water in blower. I have seen water get into blower motor and short out. Good luck I hope this helps.

1998 ford taurus blower won't work. Heat won't go on or the a.c. How can this be fixed or what is the cause of the problem?


Check the fuse box under the hood and look for the a/c heater blower fuse, check to see if it's gone bad and needs to be replaced. The other thing to is check if the blower fan works on high setting only, if it does, then the blower motor resistor has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Once you have gone through all the electrical fuse and relay, then good chance that the blower motor needs to be replaced. If you go to Auto Zone they will have the blower motor and resistor if you want to replace that too and they will have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done with common tools. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer more questions you may have.

Blower on the heater/AC not working on 1998 Escort, checked fuse under dash?


Ok, first off, check the fuses under the dash. If they're all good, does the blower work only on high speed? If yes, then you have a bad blower motor resistor, which is located under the hood, near the blower motor itself. If the motor doesnt work at all at any fan speed, make sure the wiring harness that plugs into the motor under the hood is clean and tightly installed. If it still doesnt operate, sometimes tapping on the blower motor housing will kick it on, but if that doesnt work, you may have to replace the blower motor. They are available aftermarket, and arent usually too expensive.
