The blower motor resister has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Normally there are several different sized springs . Each one causes the fan to run at a different speed. When the resister goes bad the fan goes to it's default setting (full speed) . Resisters run hot and need to be cooled so they always located on or near the blower motor shroud.

This is a classic sign of a heater blower motor resistor. It is usually located around the heater motor. It has a resistor for each speed, except for high. These burn up and are common to fail. Usually not a hard or expensive fix.

Where are the sensors for radiator fan merc.2002 villager


Sensors for radiator Fan ? What sensor ? The coolant temperature sensor is an input to the PCM - engine computer ! When the engine temperature reaches 200 degree's the PCM energizes 1 to 3 Cooling fan relay's in the battery junction box (fuse-relays ) The low speed fan relay , High speed fan control relay 1 , an high speed fan control relay 2 . Now what problem are you having ? Go on you tube an check out videos on testing cooling fan's , testing relay's .Before you replace a sensor you don't need too .

AC and Heater fan will only work on high speed, all fuses good. any ideas thanks, Dave


When the blower fan will only work on high speed setting this means the fans speed control resistor is burned out, when it fails the fan defaults to high speed only. The fan resistor is located next to the fan and held into the cooling air duct by 2 screws near the blower motor. The part is fairly cheap and easy to replace.

Fan doesn't work on high speed. It work on speeds 1-3 but not on 4 (highest speed).


Most common cause is a faulty ballast resistor. When they malfunction, they usually will work on lower fan speeds and not on higher speeds. Eventually, you will lose intermediate fan speeds as well. The resistor itself (usually white with 2 plugs mounted on the firewall near the heater core) is generally inexpensive and easy to replace. It's best to identify it on the car prior to buying one, then if you're up to it, remove it and bring it with you to the parts store.

I have an 99 mercury villager and the ''engine fan'' won't come on I took the connectoroff and wired it directly to the battery and it does work, So is it a blown fuse or some sensor and If so where is...


you have one low speed relay and 2 high speed relays in the battery box under the hood. Check them first.
Could be the ECT Sesnor, engine coolant temp sensor. Does it come on when you turn a/c on?

93 villager runs good, but temp. gauge runs up to the hot line, but never runs hot. is the a colling fan that should go on.


the cooling fan should come on low speed and then high speed as it gets hotter.

The fan should come on anytime the a/c clutch engages, even cold engine.
3 cooling fan realys in battery box in front of battery. controlled by signal from engine coolant sensor. siganl from engine computer.

Overheating cadillac


YOU CANT BYPASS THE COOLANT FANS TO OPERATE FULL SPEED.IF YOU TRY YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE HEAD ACHES AND PCM TROUBLES.YOUR THREE COOLANT FAN SPEED IS CONTROL BY THE POWER MODULE IT ASSISTS THE COMPUTER SWITCHING FAN SPEEDS AND CLIMATE CONTROL FUNCTION.CHECK ALL 3 FANS RELAYS ONE OF THEM IS NOT WORKING.IT WILL CAUSE FAN SPEED PROBLEMS.DONT BYPASS OR OVERRIDE FANS.IF SO.YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE PCM AND CLIMATE CONTROL PROBLEMS.IF YOU HAVE ALREADY CHECK 3 FAN RELAYS.THEY ARE GOOD LET THE CADILLAC DEALERSHIP CHECK IT OUT.

2002 Honda Odyssey fan only works at high speed. The A/C compress


Usually when the blower fan only operates on hi speed, its because of a failed blower motor resistor. You still have hi speed because on hi, the power going to the blower motor goes directly to it, as opposed to the lower speeds, when the power is routed through the resistor, thus lowering the voltage, which in turn lowers the speed of the fan. The resistor is usually located near the blower motor itself, under the hood back near the firewall.

Fan switch speed does not change from speed 2 to speed 3


it is all in the switch, it should only be a few bucks at a parts store and all you have to do is pop the the dash off and replace that switch.

1998 mercury villger fuel pump and cooling fan wont work


these are separate problems. You have a black fuse and relay box under the hood by the battery. There are 3 cooling fan relays in that box. 1 for low speed fan, 2 for high speed fan. You also have a fuel pump relay there.
First I would check and clean the positive battery post connection. It has 2 smaller wires that go to all the accessories. The big one is for the starter. I probably would buy a new termianl end and replace it.

Also, go here for our Villager Quest forum. files & photos to help you fix you van.

Overheating


you have one low speed fan relay and 2 high speed fan relays. I suspect the low speed relay is bad.
