Question about 1999 Ford Contour

1 Answer

My 1999 Ford Contour's fan blower is having some issues. When I start the car, the fan blower does not blow. After about 10-15 minutes, it finally kicks in. I can feel the heat when I start the car, but it is very faint. Any ideas? My thoughts were either a blown fuse, replace the blower motor, or replace the resistor.

1999 ford contour is not getting gas? starts finally but when put in reverse it chokes and dies. battery finally holds charge

Check the fuel pump. It's inside the fuel tank. You can read fuel pressure from the schraeder valve fitting on the injector rail with a gauge. If low or no pressure is shown, then replace the fuel pump.

1999 ford contour se custom sport check engine light stays on recently had new alternator replaced and when i turn heat on it only runs on hi otherwise car is running ok will the check engine light go off...

Contour's are notorious for check engine lights. Mine has been on for years. The only way really to reset the CEL is to rent or buy a code reader and record the codes that are stored. Information on CEL codes is available on the internet. FYI the most common code for contour's are P0420 and P0421. These won't cause any driveability issues. As for your heater problem, your fan blower relay is toast

Heater of my 1999 ford contour is not working. is there a fuse i can replace to make it work?

There is a fuse under the steering wheel area, also there is a heater conrol under the passenger side dash on the left side of the blower motor. 1 screw holds it in the plenum(heating duct) there is a 4 wire plug going to it. You can check the actual blower motor for operation by putting 12 volts to it. To remove it there are two tabs on either side of the housing.Remove the wire first. Push the tabs up together and turn the fan housing to remove it. You now will have the whole fan in your hands. Using a wire jump from a 12v source(car battery works) to test the fan.2 wires reqd for + and-. if the fan does not function it may need replacing or just lubrication.
