Question about 2000 Toyota Camry

2 Answers

Fan (blower for interior) only works on high setting all other settings basically turns the fan off. Air conditioning still works. There is not air flow at all on the settings (other than high) when the "recirculation" button is on . There is air flow with no pressure on the lower fan settings when the recirculation is off.

The fan speed resistor is the problem........when you are on full speed the current bypasses the resistor and this is what gives you the fastest speed from the fan motor.......on 1, 2, or 3 speed setting, it is directed through the fans speed resistor circuit

It is located in the air box behind the glovebox on the interior of the car passenger side

    Thank you. Is the resister easy to replace? Can novice mechanic do it? Is it best to get a repair manual at this time?

    It is fairly easy to do, pretty much remove the wiring connector from it, and 2 screws and it is out......if you lie on your back with your head under the glovebox you will notice it under there with a torch.....it is square and is located underneath the air box (behind the glovebox)

    Thanks... this is helpful. I looked under, and there is a black plastic piece with no screws connecting it to anything. How can that black piece be safely removed without breakage?

Air condition only works on setting 4 can you give me some advice regards Alan


I don't fully understand your question, though I believe you are stating that the fan switch only turns the fan on to the high setting. This condition is usually caused by a blower motor resistor going bad.

Tip

Tips for operating Air conditioning system on Toyota Hilux and someother...


To cool off your Toyota after it has been parked in the hot sun, drive with the windows open for a few minutes. This vents the hot air, allowing the air conditioning to cool the interior more quickly.

Make sure the air intake grilles in front of the windshield are not blocked (by leaves or snow, for example).

On humid, do not blow cold air on the windshield. The windshield could fog up because of the difference in air temperature on the inside and outside of the windshield.

Keep the area under the front seats clear to allow air to circulate throughout the vehicle.

On cold days, set the fan speed to high for a minute to help clear the intake ducts of snow or moisture. This can reduce the amount of fogging on the windows.

When driving on dusty roads, close all windows. If dust thrown up b the vehicle is still drawn into the vehicle after closing the windows, it is recommended that the in intake be set to FRESH and the fan speed to any setting except "OFF".

If following another vehicle on a dusty road, or driving in windy and dusty conditions, it is recommended that the air intake be temporarily set to RECIRCULATE, which will close off the outside passage and prevent outside air and dust from entering the vehicle interior.

HEATING

For best results, set controls to;
Fan speed ---- Any setting except "OFF"
Temperature----Towards WARM (red zone)
Air intake ---- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow ---- FLOOR
Air conditioning ---- OFF

For quick heating, select recirculated air for a few minutes. To keep the windows from fogging, select fresh after the vehicle has been warmed.

Press the "A/C" button on for dehumidified heating.

Choose floor/windshield air flow to heat the voltage interior while defrosting or defogging the windshield.

AIR CONDITIONING

For best results, set controls to;

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards COLD (blue zone)
Air intake --- (outside air)
Air flow --- PANEL
Air conditioning --- ON

For quick cooling, move the air intake selector to recirculate for a few minutes.

VENTILATION

For best results, set controls to;

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards COLD (blue zone)
Air intake --- (outside air)
Air flow --- PANEL
Air conditioning --- ON

DEFOGGING

The inside of the windshield

For best results, set controls to:

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards WARM (red zone) to heat; COLD (blue zone) to cool
Air intake --- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow --- WINDSHIELD
Air conditioning --- ON

The outside of the windshield

For best results, set controls to:

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards WARM (red zone)
Air intake --- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow --- WINDSHIELD
Air conditioning --- OFF

On humid days, do not blow cold air on the windshield. The windshield could fog up because of the difference in air temperature on the inside and outside of the windshield.

DEFROSTING

The outside of the windshield

For best results, set controls to:

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards WARM (red zone)
Air intake --- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow --- WINDSHIELD
Air conditioning --- OFF

To heat the vehicle interior while defrosting the windshield, choose floor/windshield air flow.

Air condition and heat won't work


Check to see if you are getting voltage to the blower motor if you are the motor is bad if not check the fan speed switch. 1 2 3 or low medium high if you get voltage going to the switch but not from replace the switch if you have voltage from switch check the blower motor resistor the although with the blower resistor you commonly have a high fan speed in the max setting and the lower speed settings don't work wich would make you think 1 2 3 are not working but 4 is. That is why it is best to check all parts to make sure the part you do replace needed to be replaced

Interior fan hasn't worked properly for some time, would only work on fan's highest setting. Now we've got no air at all, regardless of setting.


Blower motor RESISTER has went bad. Its behind the blower motor; small hands are a definite plus for changing it.

Cabin air fan will not turn on


Sounds like a blower motor resistor that is malfunctioning. It will cause the fan motor to only turn on at one speed, and generally it will work on High only. Pretty comon on and older vehicle, and fairly inexpensive.

Defrost and floor wont blow air but vents work


these repairs are usually best left to an electromechanic but it can be doen by anyone with basic knowledge following the troubleshooting section in repair manual which can be purchase from local parts shop or online haynes or chiltons will do and get a multitester.

First check basics: are the fuses good to defrost blower? (fuse access refer to manual)
then see if there is power to the blower/defrost switch use multi meter at 20V setting
then see if there is power to blower unit under dash (see manual under interior section to access blower motor)
probe using same setting to test for power on each wire ( as you turn blower setting from low to high you shuld notice the voltagre climbs aswell)
if this checks out your blower motor is faulty replace and your good heres a few places to get the best deal on parts
