The blower motor resistor has failed. A relatively in expensive repair.The resistor may have failed due to age or possibly the blower motor itself.

    where is this resistor located?

    The blower motor resistor is usually located near the blower motor under the passenger side dash for this vehicle.

    Some are available through auto parts stores such as NAPA and Carquest.The dealer should have it though a on average runs 20-30 dollars.

I'm working on a 93 escort and have no dash lights or heater fan. All other lights work Anyone have a fix?


ok under the hood were the blower motor is, or under the dash were over it may be there is a resistor there has 2 screws holding it in pace with a plug should have 4 or 5 wires on it with a test light or mult meter test for power there if you have power at the red wire the other 3 wires one is your low speed the other is med speed the 3rd id hi speed test them for power, you will need to turn your speed switch from low to med then hi to see volts there if you have power at one and not the others unplug it and put a jumper wire in there and you fan should work on what ever speed wire you have it in and if it work on all 3 speed by installing a jumper you will need to replace the resistor there a round 20 bucks .....

Ac/heater will only work on low when you move it to med or high it shuts off


need to check switch,resistor and fan ---ur switch might have resistor built in it would need to be tested for continuity for the other speeds --if your truck [didnt specify which ] has a separate resistor it should be attached to the heater fan motor housing again resistor needs to be tested -also test ur fan for any resistance or overheating

Ac/heater onlu works on low


you either have a bad switch or bad fan motor. I would start by replacing the switch

The low/med/high fan switch on my 1985 Toyota pickup is no longer working, How do I replace the heater fan blower switch?


Hi,
Don't go there just yet ! Most heater motor speed problems relate to the heater resistor ! It's located in the ducting close to the motor assy and usually has 4/5 wires on to it and a 2 screw fixing. This componant must be cooled (hence air duct location) and is solely responsible for motor speeds ! You can check motor fan by test lamp/meter ! Good Luck

Why does my heater in my 2000 ford ranger only work on the high setting?


I assume that you are talking about the heater fan?

Your heater FAN has at least 3 settings, and for our purposes we will assume low,med and high

Low and medium run through a resistor High is wired direct
Either your resistor is bad or your fan is
I know it seems wrong that the fan could be shot but it could be pulling so many amps that it won't work in any other mode than high
I just had this happen on one of my trucks
Start with the fan

1998 Ford Ranger super cab heater fan problem


Check the resistor block. It is located under the hood on the passenger side firewall under the fan motor. It has two small screws holding it in place with a wiring plug attached. Clean out corrosion to restore good electrical connections. If cleaning does not restore operation a new resistor block will be required. Weatherproof the outside of the wiring plug to prevent further corrosion and reassemble.

Toyota tacoma heater fan runs slowly in the 3rd & 4th positions


Using a voltmeter, the resisted voltage values for the fan motor are as follows:
LOW- 3 VDC
Med LOW - 6 VDC
Med HIGH - 9 VDC
High - 12 VDC

The fan resistor gets 12 volts from each position of the fan switch, and the 12 VDC is then lowered thru each of the 3 internal resistors inside the fan resistor. My guess is that the resistor has failed, and the resistance wires contained on it may have meshed together. The resistor is on the black box between the blower motor housing and the center of the dash. 2 phillips screws hold it in. Easy to remove/replace. Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Heater blower works intermitantly


If you have access to a DC voltmeter; try this:
Check for voltage on each of the heater resistor terminals, when it is unplugged, key in the on position. With the heater switch on low, you should have 3 volts DC, on lo-med, 6 VDC, hi-med, 9 VDC and on hi, 12 vdc. It looks to me like you might have a bad heater switrch, if the voltages do not match exactly what is posted above, or vary when you slightly manipulate the switch, the switch contacts are bad. Hope this helps. If not, please repost for additinal info.
