SOURCE: 2006 Ford Explorer XLT the Blower Fan only works on 4 and 3 Sp

Look under the dash on passenger side and just to the left of the blower motor housing you will see the 4WD control module.Remove the 2 screws holding the module and let it hang down and your resistors are behind this.Remove the 2 screws holding the resistors and remove.
Now I am assuming you have manual climate control and not electonic.

You most likely have air in the system. These things can be a royal pain to get the air bleed out of the system.
Look back next to the brake booster and you will see a rubber tube with a screw cap in the end of it(this is the heater bleed), also on the front of the intake area you will see a black tube with an allen sloted cap.
Remove the slotted cap and screw the screw cc on the rubber tube. Add coolant to the coolant jug allowing the system to equalize until no more coolant can be added. Add as much coolant as possible to the engine fill( the sloted cap near intake). The heater air bleed will remain open.Replace the engine fill cap.Start the engine and turn the heater to MAX position.Close the heater air bleed when a steady stream of coolant comes from it, during engine idle. Allow the engine to idle for five minutes, add coolant to the degas bottle as needed to maintain the cold fill MAX mark.Reopen the heater air bleed to release any entrapped air and close again. Maintain engine speed of 2,000 rpm for 3-5 minutes or until hot air comes from the heater.Return to idle and verify hot air is still coming from the heater. Set the heater temperature setting to 75° F and allow the vehicle to idle for two minutes.Shut the engine off and allow to cool.After the engine has cooled, add coolant to the degas bottle to bring the level to the cold fill MAX mark. This should have the air out of the system.

SOURCE: Cooling fans will not kick in.

The fans won't kick on then you need to replace the coolant temp sensor this runs your fans.

SOURCE: Ford Focus LX 2.0L 2003: radiator fan not working

This can be caused by a few things. First, the fan motor may be burned out or the temperature switch may be malfunctioning so the fan doesn't engage. The thermostat may also have gone out which prohibits the coolant to circulate through the engine and radiator thus cooling your engine.

Why does my blower only work on number 4


this sounds like a bad blower motor resistor that is bad and only working when the switch is put in the 4th position. the resistor has resistors wires in it that respond to the path of power through fan switch on the dash, depending on which fan speed you need.

I need an engine coolant blower motor control module


Doesd the fan work when the aircon is turned on?If not then the fan needs to be changed as it comes as a whole assembly including the resistor.
All you have to do is jack the car up,place chasis stands, unplug the fan wires from the bottom,push the whole frame on which the fan is mounted on and it should just pop out.
There is a ceremic resistor on the fan assembly that tends to go brittle over a time.The whole assembly from ford was $120aud.(about 2mnths ago)

Hello my name is Sean and I have a 2002 ford focus wagon with a 2.0 motor. The blower fan for the heat and air has stoped working. I have ordered a new blower fan and resistor but havent received yet. I...


the fan motor is maybe bad, disconnect it (the motor) and put in new fuse, if its ok, then the motor is bad. the resistor only handles speeds lower than HIGH. so replace the motor first, then try it, if all speeds work, then the resistor is OK.

Need to know where the fan motor and resistor is located on the 2003 Ford Focus. Car overheats while idling, driving, in park, and it'll still overheat when the heater is on. Tell me what site I can find...


Cars usually overheat when the thermostat is faulty, coolant level is low, or the water pump fails. If your cooling fan on the radiator does not kick on shortly after the engine reaches operating temperature, you may have a bad cooling fan, cooling fan relay, or cooling fan fuse. If your engine is overheating, start by checking the fluid level, and installing a new thermostat.

A blower motor resistor is the device that controls a car's cabin heating and air conditioning unit's fan speeds. This usually won't cause the engine to overheat, your A/C fan may not function or only function at one speed. Here is a Blower Motor Resistor from Autozone: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/2003-Ford-Focus/A-C-Heater-Blower-Motor-Resistor/_/N-jk8uvZ91tag
