That's frustrating. If the fan motor sounds healthy when it does run the you probably have a faulty fan switch. When it does come on if it works at all speeds then it's possible there's a bad connection at the switch but this is unlikely. Unless you have experiance with replacing dashboard switches on a VW you wiil probably have to pay a tech to replace it and at that time the swith could be tested with a volt/ ohm meter to make sure that's the problem. I wish I could help more. Good luck.

Ac fan not working, ac is cold but fan won't blow air into cab...


check the fan itself to see if it works. check the heater fuse first! if all is ok, you probably have a bad heater fan resistor. to check blower, please go here on pc for info on blower. .cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion-t16272_ds569146

Rear blower: only works on high when set on cold, won't work at all when set to heat


I would start with the rear blower motor resistor, the resistor is what controls the speed of the fan, the resistor is located in the rear heater box near the blower, you will need to remove the right rear side panel to access the heater box. start with that

1990 Dodge Caravan A/C / Heater blower fan mode control won't work


The mode doors are operated by vacuum. Check the vacuum supply line to verify it is connected to the intake manifold. If that looks good, remove the control panel to see if vacuum is coming to the mode switch. Then check to see if the switch is transferring vacuum to the actuator lines. Here is the panel removal procedure:
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the necessary bezel(s) in order to gain access to the control head.
  3. Remove the screws that fasten the control head to the instrument panel.
  4. Pull the unit out to troubleshoot.

My keyless remote for my mercury sable 2001 just stopped working. I changed the battery, but it won't work. Is there a fuse/connection ( less expensive ) that I could try ?


It will not make the car not heat unless you have an electronic climate control but it will make the blower that blows the heat not force the air into the car and you will only get air blowing when the car is moving. Check fuses first (refer to manual if your not sure where they are) and then make sure your blower (the fan) is working when you turn it on low/med/hi etc.

Heat & AC blower (fan) does not come on. Just


if it worked on some settings and not on others then the blower motor resister has gone bad. its mounted on the heater box near the fan about half way up the heater box. they are cheap and easy to change. give that a try first

A/c heater won't blow... Blower works even replaced with new blower but still won't blow... Is there a relay to replace? The fuse for a/c is good


did you check to see if the a/c belt is still on the a/c puller ? if so then try a flush of all hoses.
