Question about 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis

Climate Control Blower motor stopped working

The fan stopped working regardless of the speed being set low or high, heat, A/C, vent, etc. I checked all the fuses, took the climate control unit from the dash, checked and cleaned all connections. disconnected the blower motor and measured the voltage. At low speed, I was receiving 2-3 volts and at high fan speed, 10-12 volts. I figured the motor was bad so I replaced it, but got the same problem. I took both the new and old blower motors and applied external battery and both motors worked. I figured maybe the connector itself was bad so I cut the wires and connected directly to the motor and it still did not work. When I checked the voltage with the motor attached, I was not getting any reading. Something is causing a voltage drop when the motor is connected, but I don't know how to proceed?

    I was told the resistor is bad, but I can't find it to replace it. Can you help?

I had the same problem with my 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis. I ended up replacing the blower and the resistor which is on the passenger center side of the firewall tucked in where it is hard to get to. Everything worked fine for about two years. It just went out again here about a month ago. I am going to try to replace the resistor again, but I am wondering if it doesnt have something to do with the climate control switch. I do not want to replace the same part every year or two, so if anyone has a idea of what could possibaly be the bigger problem, please let me know.

I know this is gonna sound stupid but you mentioned nothing about it did you by chance find and check for a ground ?

SOURCE: heat-a/c blower motor stopped

check for ground going to fan. If there is no ground replace a/c control panel located under radio it what you use to turn on the heater/ a/c

SOURCE: HEAT/AC blower motor stopped working

It's even odd that you were getting a step-type voltage when you first checked.
Many speed regulators are simple tapped resistors with the switch selecting which tap is connected to the motor.
More elegant controls would use a semiconductor (transistor) and a few other components to supply step-variable voltage to the motor.

To determine which is used on your car, you will at least need the electrical diagram for it, preferably an aftermarket service manual - Haynes or Chilton should be available at least in the US and Canada.
Those will contain not only the electrical info you now lack but possibly instructions that will aid in locating the controlling circuit.
I suspect that circuit is faulty; if the resistor type, it will be a device with mulitple taps, if solid state, a few parts on a small board.

Have a 2009 Nissan Quest I can't turn the heat off. Just stays on a high level of blowing out heat .


If you have a fan that has different speed settings (1234, or low med high etc) and the only one that works is high - then the blower resistor pack has failed. If you have a climate control unit (where you just pick a temp you want) then the fan is controlled by the heating system and it sets fan speed. If you have climate control style try lowering the temp to a lower setting (current temp in vehicle) and see if fan slows down. If not then climate control unit or fan resistor bad. If dial type and you get nothing on lower settings (only high works like mentioned above) you need to change blower resistor. It is located under dash near the fan itself. Look for small unit bolted in duct near fan with wire plug going to it.

Blower motor doesn't pump well even the fan switch on high


sounds like blower bearings are dried out and will eventually lock up the blower..sometimes you can spray wd40 in the blower bearings and it will work fine for a while.. also check vacuum controls to the baffle dors in the ductwork..may have some leaks there.. should hear a slight hissing if really bad..repost findings

Why wont my a/c or heater fan come on?


When the blower works only on the high setting its usually a bad blower resistor which is right near the blower motor. now you say it would always blow high regardless of the fan speed setting that would indicate probably the climate control unit or a connector problem somewhere. finally it not working at all may be the climate control unit or connection went bad even further. it might have a blown fuse or a bad blower motor in addition to the climate control unit or connector problem .check for power and ground at the blower motor. the power is supplied from fuses and may have a relay also. the ground is supplied from the climate control unit and goes through the resistor to control the fan speed. good luck

The air conditioner isnt blowing hard


Do the blower speed settings still work, just weaker? Or is it just one low speed all the time? If you can still change the speeds then it's a weak blower motor. If its just one low speed all the time, (same speed for high and low blower speed settings) then you need a blower motor resistor.

2000 Volvo V70 climate control problem - blower remains in high, regardless of AUT 0-High setting. Vent selection and temperature controls work. Any idea?


Most common cause of this problem is a bad climate control power stage. The power stage control the speed of the blower fan on different settings, if it goes bad it defaults to full blast. There is a small chance the climate contro lunit itself is bad but more than 90% of the time, it is the power stage. It is located near the blower fan under the dash in the passenger footwell area. It makes it much easier to remove the glove box and knee bolster as well as the cover panel. It is rectangular in shape about 1.5" x 3" and black.

if it was a vacuum leak it would not do it intermittently, first you should replace your blower motor resistor to correct the only working on high fan speed and the reevaluate the a/c it could be affecting the climate control

No heat or a/c


From what your saying, it works in a sense, but very little air is blowing out. I had this issue with my '96 328i where the climate control was only running the fans at a low speed no matter what setting I put it on. The resolution to my problem was replacing the final stage unit for the climate control and now my heat and a/c work beautifully and the fan goes from low to high without problems. If you don't have climate control but the manual dials for the heat and a/c, then you may need to change the blower resistor pack. For either unit, it can be located in several places and you'll have to do some searching to find it good. If the convertible is any similar to the 4dr sedan I have, it should be located under the dash panel on the drivers side at the rear of the console. Hopefully this link may help you out.
