It is located in the engine compartment, on the firewall, passenger side. Before pulling it, check for power to it. If no power, check for a corroded relay. It is located in a smaller relay box located right near the air filter box, between the engine and fender well. Kinda hard to see-. When you pull the cover, the relay will be in the #2 slot (2nd position from the radiator) the #1 slot is usually not used. It's only $7. Do not confuse this box with the power distribution/relay box on the drivers side.

Of course, first check the fuses.

SOURCE: does not blow when heater is on? blower motor

First check fuse panel for burned fuse, if all o.k., Take a look up under passenger side dash, it's usually a common spot.When you find it, locate wires going into it & probe with 12vdc test light for power with key on & fan in run position. If light comes on by probing one of the wires, your fan motor is shot, if nothing at either wire, start back tracking for relay & switch malfunction.

SOURCE: Blower motor location and installation on 73 ford gran torino

It's less than foot from the heater core. I would guess that either the damper doors are not on correctly or the vent hoses are not hooked up. Can you hear the blower motor running? Maybe they didn't hook the motor back up when they replaced the heater core. It takes a ground and a hot wire.I can't remember where it's at but it may be part of the same unit. Did you check the fuse?

SOURCE: locating heater blower motor resistor

the resistor is behind your glove box. open the box and push in the sides to release it and let it hang down...the resistor is right there. I didn't try to replace it, a friend did it, but the part was under $20.

My car has no heat


The first thing to check is the level of coolant-is it full? Because no heat is the first indication of low coolant. When car is cool, open radiator cap and fill with a 50-50 mix of antifreeze and water. Also fill the overflow tank halfway up with the coolant mix.
Also feel both heater hoses after the car has come to normal operating temperature. Both should be hot. If they are, the heater is working as intended. If only one is hot, the coolant is not circulating through the heater, and someone will have to get that working-possibly an air block in the heater core, possibly a plugged heater core.
Finally, the blower motor may have wore out. Without the blower, very little heat will come out. Test or replace the blower motor.

The heater and ac arent working,


is it not blowing air? first check the fuses and if they are good then get a test light and unplug the fan motor. using the test light probe the hot side of the plug while you turn on the blower does the test light light up? if so the blower motor is bad. if not locate the resistor for the fan and unplug it probe the hot pin and turn on the blower does it light up? if so the resistor is bad if not the switch needs to be your next step. hope this helps

My 94 Sundance heater/AC blower motor has quit. I've bought a new resister, but cannot find where it's located. Any help?


The blower motor resistor is located in the same duct that the blower motor blows through. If you see the blower motor, within a foot of it is the resistor. The blower motor actually blows over the resistor to keep it cool. The blower motor is usually only in 1 of 2 different locations. On passenger side, access under the hood or under dash access behind glovebox. In both cases the resitor will be in the duct that the blower motor blows through.

My heater doen't blow hot air


does the blower motor turn on. if so then check the heater core lines going into the fire wall when the vehicle is wam and feel if both are the same temp if they arent u may have a plug in the heater core preventing it from circulating thus no heat.

Blower motor doesn't blow anymore, This blows


If it blows only on high speed, it is the resister.
If it does not work at all, check fuses first. See owner manual for location.
Then check blower motor by jumping 12 volts from battery to blower motor. Make sure ground is jumped too.

If it works now, it's the control panel. If not, it is the motor.

Heater Blower Motor Switch Resistor(s)
The front heater blower motor switch resistor has the following features:
  • The assembly is located in the engine compartment on the evaporator housing (19850) next to the blower motor assembly (19805).
  • Three resistor elements are mounted on the resistor board to provide four blower motor speeds.
  • Depending on the heater blower motor switch position, series resistance is added or bypassed in the A/C blower motor circuit to decrease or increase A/C blower motor speed.
  • An overheating device (thermal limiter) will open the resistor coil circuit when the temperature reaches 121°C (250°F), interrupting the blower motor operation in all speeds except high.
  • The thermal limiter cannot be reset and is not serviceable.

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.

91 explorer heater not blowing air


The blower motor is located under the hood on the passengers side next to the hood hinge on the firewall. But, check your blower motor resistor first. The resistor is usually the trouble maker. It is located next to the blower motor. It should have 2 screws holding it onto the heater housing. Also an electrical connector. I sincerely hope that this will get it working again. Best wishes to ya.

A/c heater fan no blow


sounds to me like the blower motor resistor, and if I'm not mistaken the resistor and the blower motor are located under the dash on the passengers side. the resistor should have a wiring connection and 2 screws attaching it to the blower case. The a/c and heater blower will not work if the resistor goes out. hope this helps you out a little. Best wishes.
