It sounds like the wire for a remote amp, or power antenna (the blue wire) needs to be taped up, and the fuse for the radio/power windows replaced. Is it an aftermarket stereo?

I changed alternator and new battery on ford 98 still battery light is on?


Have you checked the fuse and Maxi limiters. Inside the engine compartment on the right side of the firewall there is a cover that has your limiters underneath it, also there is an in-line fuse for your alternator that may have been overlooked. It will be a orange and Lt blue on one side of the fuse and on the other side it will be Yellow and white.

I hope this cure the problem. Good luck.

The front fan has stopped working in my 2004 town and country. It is not the fuse or relay. I am assuming it is the fan motor. I have read it is behind the glove compartment. I have dropped the glove...

Hello Defjlf.

It is mounted on the passenger side at the bottom of the heater box just above where the passengers feet would be. The motor will be mounted in vertical.
On the Town & Country you may need to remove the hush panel to see it.
You may need to be a flexible person to work under there but it isn't too bad to change.
If you need further advise on this, please ask me here in a comment. Be glad to help.

Front blower motor not working

Hi there,

Your front blower motor not working may be as a result of the failure of the heater control resistor unit. However, if you can hear the blower motor operating, but cannot feel air flow from the vents, there is a problem with the airflow controls, not the blower motor.

Also, you can check if there is any fluid leaking from the heater core or evaporator. Any fluid leaks near the heater blower may need to be resolved immediately. If a total replacement is needed, here's how you do it:

  • Raise and support the hood on your van. Loosen and remove the negative cable from its post on the battery with a socket wrench. Lay the cable down within the engine compartment. Wait approximately 12 minutes before you continue the repair. This will allow enough time for the back-up power sources for the air bags to deplete their energy.
  • Open the front passenger's-side door and have a seat within the van. Open the glove compartment door and take out everything in it. At the upper, rear of the door you should see black tabs--one on both sides of the door.
  • Grasp the glove compartment door on both sides near each of the tabs. Squeeze the door inward to release the tabs and lower the door. Allow the door to hang--you do not have to completely remove it.
  • Locate the blower motor cover. If you look through the hole where the glove compartment door was, you should see the cover directly in front of you. The cover is black and looks like a strangely shaped circle
  • Remove the three bolts from around the lip of the cover with your socket wrench. Pull the cover off and set it to the side. Follow the blower motor's wiring harness through the hole in the blower motor housing and unplug the harness. Back-feed the wires through the hole in the housing and allow them to hang from the blower motor.
  • Remove the three bolts around the base of the blower motor that secure it in place with your socket wrench. Pull the blower motor toward you and then lower it down from under the dashboard. Install the new blower motor just as you removed the old one. It will not fit through the glove compartment hole. You have to raise it up from under the dashboard.
  • Return and completely secure all three of the bolts to the base of the blower motor with your socket wrench. Feed the new blower motor's wiring harness back through the hole in the housing. Plug the harness back up to the same connection to which the old blower connected.
  • Place the cover back over the blower motor. Return and tighten all three of the cover's bolts with your socket wrench. Lift the glove compartment door and squeeze inward near the tabs once more. Push the tabs back behind the door opening and then release the door. Return everything you had in the glove compartment and shut the door.
  • Reconnect and secure the negative cable to the battery with your socket wrench. Shut the hood, start your Town & Country's engine and test out the blower motor.

Best of luck...

Where is the resistor located that runs the different speeds of the blower motor?

Its on the passenger side underneath the dash. Take off the lower dash panel that's right below the glove compartment (2 screws you can see underneath, 2 you have to take off the glove compartment door to get to). Once you get that off, its really easy to see. There are 2 bolts (size about 7mm) holding it in and a locking clip with the 4 blower switch wires coming out.

I have a 1996 Buick Gran Sport that the blower started making a noise like some insulation or something is flapping against the fan. How do you remove the blower housing to gain access?

there are three screws you need to get to underneath the glove compartment two of which are quite easy to remove, the third is tucked far in to the side kickplate on the passenger side. Most often something from your glove box can slide back and fall in to the blower motor and make a heck of a noice, I bet your laugh once you find out what is stuck in there, I know I did
