Question about 1997 Ford Taurus
These are 2 separate systems. It is possible the blower and the radio work on the same power line but unless one was causing a short it would not effect the other. If you remove the radio and disconnect it, based on what she is saying, the blower should work fine. I can pretty much guarantee it won't. You can buy a radio and adapter connection from any Walmart or other radio store or auto parts store. The adapter set will allow you to use the wiring and connectors in the vehicle with a none dealer radio system. If the motor on the blower is shorting outand the radio runs on the same power circuit you can disconnect the wiring harness from the blower and the radio will work fine. All of these connectors can be accessed without tools from under the dash. If the problem is the radio or the blower it is easy to isolate and locate however, if the problem is a short in the wiring that could be a lot harder to find. Look at the fuse box if the vehicle has an alarm installed on it and make sure there are no bare wires touching where it shouldn't. Your looking at hours of testing and even then it may eventually lead back to the ECM, a $1200 repair.

NO, the radio and blower are not hooked together. Those cars have major electrical problems, and transmission problems, and overheating problems. If it has over 100,000 miles on it, don't buy it.
