Question about 1999 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

1 Answer

My 1999 E320 wagon cabin air blower/fan does not come on when unit is activated, in either A/C or Heat. In A/C the heat exchanger gets cold and the airway dampers can be heard switching, but no blower. Blower fuses are ok. Is there an internal switch I can check? Where do I access the blower motor to check wiring, etc.? Thanks for your help.

02 mountaineer heater blows cold air, but one heater hose hot the other cold


One hose being cold means the water/coolant is not flowing through the heater core. Flushing it may help.

Fan stays on ,wont let the Radiator get hot .so i m not getting any heat


Hi Fred.

I'm not totally sure I understand your question, but I'll take a shot. Are you saying that the engine fan stays on all the time for your car, keeping the radiator cool, and so you're not able to get any heat in the cabin air? Or possibly that the cabin fan is on all the time and you can't get any heat because it's keeping the radiator cool.

unless there is something very odd about your car (or you're living at the south pole), your engine coolant will be plenty warm within a few minutes of starting. If you are doubtful, drive the car for 5 to 10 minutes, stop, turn off the motor, pop the hood, and carefully move your hand close to the radiator. The blower fan helps transfer heat, but that's to move the coolant temp down probably into the 150-200F range.

if you're not getting any cabin heat, I'd have stronger suspicion about the heater core for your air system. In the majority of vehicles, there is a loop of coolant that comes off the back of the engine block, through the fire wall, and up to a U-Bend of pipe. When the heater is off, the coolant is just re-directed back to the engine. As you turn the knob or lever for cabin heat, it'll turn a switching valve to shunt the hot coolant into a heat exchanger/mini-radiator that the cabin air blows past. This system being a mini-radiator is why highways with long uphill grades will advise motorists to turn on their heater full heat, highest fan, when climbing in the summer. it's an additional way to keep the engine from overheating, even if it sucks for people in the vehicle.

Depending on the car, it can be either easy or really involved diagnosing or repairing the heat exchanger. if you go this route, you'll want to make sure that the coolant is circulated through the core thoroughly and that the coolant-system is de-bubbled.

Good Luck!

2001 Chevy blazer air conditioning blower is throwing very little air. what and how I can get it back to normal?


Is the issue there when using heat and air-con?
If so, then check the blower motor and fan switch for fault.

Check any cabin air filter if fitted for clogging.

If only an issue with hot air flow, then check the heater matrix hasn't bunged up.

If only a cold air flow, then check the air conditioning car evaporator in the cabin for signs of clogging.

Clogging can be more of an issue in pet owner's cars as pet hair readily clogs up these two components in cars fitted with no interior air cleaner element/filter.

Heat problem in my bmw 1993 525i wagon and my blower are not working


check the fuse for your blower problem if not the fuse could be a conection on the unit or the blower unit has died. as for the lack of heat this could be cos of the blower or fan motor as i call it not working but could also be your thermostat stuck open or a air lock in the water system

1999 cadillac deville air wont work


There's a blower motor (fan) under the hood and up against the firewall near the center of the car that takes some work to remove. It has gone out in the last 2 of my 4 Cadillacs. Turns out if you're not real careful with the positioning of the spark plug wires they will brush up against it, and if one of them gets cracked or brittle it will "arc" and short out the blower motor. The a/c compressor should still come on (you'll hear a click when it engages) but you won't get any air blowing into the cabin, hot or cold.

The part was like $200 stock (year 2000 prices) and it took about an hour to remove it. My Caddy at that time had this damn strut bar going across the engine bay which we eventually removed to get to the blower motor.
