    does the bower motor stop running when you turn the switch off?

    When the car is turned off and the key is removed the defrost runs full blast. If I remove the "Blower Relay" from the box under the hood it will stop.
    Also, when I crank the car it stops.

Well it seems to me that you've found the problem, the relay is stuck closed. looking at these wiring diagrams i have, fuse #23 supplys power to the relay. this circuit is hot at all times. so with the relay stuck, it would energize the motor. you can swap a relay of the same type with one from the same location. just be sure it has nothing to do with starting or running the car. most relays are identical. check the part number on the relay

    I purchased a new relay yesterday and put it in and it did not correct the situation.
    My wife just called and when she pushed the relay in this morning the fan did not come on. She has driven around town stoping and starting the car and it is working fine today.????
    The only way I could get it to stop last night was to pull out the blower relay??

    well bud, i can't help you. the only thing i can think of is there may be a intermittent wiring problem. try wiggling wires around to see if the motor will run. or your wife is magic.

AC blows cold air, fans stop blowing

I think you have a "variable speed resistor" problem, it's overheating. It's an electronic device usually located near or attached to the AC motor blower that controls the fan speed. This is a common problem with aging AC blowers with electronic controls.

I have a 98 expedition that starts every time but shuts down everytime too.

When you start it up don't completely release the key from the crank position, let off just enough to stop the starter, if the engine continues to run the ignition switch is defective, a common problem in this year. This is not the lock cylinder but the electrical switch located down at the bottom top of the steering column that the ignition key cylinder actuates via a long steel rod.

Fords systems will still blow air even when off. does the clicking get quieter wehn off?

also, you can get it to stop blowing by turning on the recirculator. its a button with a car on it and a u-shapped arrow on the ac controls in dash. IF it stops then then something is in the housing and the fan is hitting it.
