Sounds like the heater plug/Ballast resister has burnt out. It is located up in the passenger footwell towards the middle of the car. This is a common problem and ford have a modified wiring loom with thicker gauge cables and a new ballast resister. You will probably find that your loom and ballast resister are burnt due to the current being drawn through these smaller gauge cables. Sometime the heater will work on the lowest or highest setting but not on the other settings. Hope this is of help to you.

Someone will need to figure out if you are lacking fuel to the injectors, spark to the plugs, or if you have a mechanical problem with the engine such as a faulty timing belt.

98 contour heater worker stopped working


It's uner the dash, alot of time packages/people will loosen its one wire. If it also will not just blow on fan and is indead plugged in and has 12volt measuerd to ground it's a new fan motor you'll need.
