Question about 2002 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Blower Motor fuses keep on blowing. During summer seasons the air has blown from my car with a loud rattling noise until it went kaput and nothing blows at all. I replaced the fuses under the hood labeled "Blower Motor" only to find that the fuse keeps on blowing once I turn on the HVAC So, why do they keep blowing? And how do I fix it? Perhaps I should fix that rattling noise problem first? Technical terms appreciated.

I believe the ultimate problem is with the blower motor itself.They can get water in them, dirt and general grot. The motor will be on the passenger side up under the dash and will be held in with three screws.You are going to have to remove the motor and examine it.Watch your back,I won't do this job any more because of the way you have to double up.I'm thinking that the blower may have come apart and jammed.Many times you can get replacement blower fans at your local auto shop,or try your local wreckers for a good used one.Nissan will want way too much for this so try these sources first.You can apply direct battery voltage to the old fan to test it but be carefull,if its good it will try to torque out of your hand,and be sure you don't cross any of the wires,it can be a shocking experience( no pun intended) Take your time and good luck.

1996 Lincoln Mark 8 AC controllers working blowers working nothing coming out of the vent


I noted your question. You said that NOTHING is coming out of the VENT. Do you mean the interior vents normally for heat and air? Does air blow out of your dash defrost vent? Does blower motor work continuously? If so, I suggest that you check fuse panel at driver's door. If you have your owner's guide, look on pages 251 and 252. 251 shows your interior fuses. 252 shows description for Fuse #9 (10A). You have numerous 10A fuses. #9 is the lowest fuse perpendicular to Fuse #10 (15A). If it is blown, you have some sort of resistance in one of 4 things RUN BY THE FUSE. I went to my mechanic and he told me that the Blower Motor Control Resistor behind the glove compartment was bad. I replaced it (125 dollars) and it was not the problem. Check the fuse. Is it blown? Replace and the system may work normally. If it continues to blow please get back to me. If the system works after replacement, please respond.

The heater and a/c quit working on my 1998 Mercury Mystique.


Could be a fuse/relay in the electrical box under the hood. Take the lid off and flip it over. You should see a diagram of what relay control's what. If not it will be in the owners manual or search it up on google.it could be the fan/blower motor went bad or just the resistor for the fan/blower motor.

Turned on interior fan speed and heard a loud noise, then nothing. Air speed now doesn't work.


More than likely the squirrel cage fan attached to the blower motor has broken or come apart causing it to bind up in the housing making the vehicle blow a fuse. Check the fuse block for the blown fuse then try the switch for the fan speed again if no noise, you may want to inspect the fan for damage.

Air/heater not blowing air at all


Starting with the basics, check the fuse for the blower motor. If it's blown and you replace it and all is fine then you can write it off as a fluke. If it blows right away or soon after you've got a short or something somewhere. If the fuse is ok then the problem is most likely the blower motor resistor or the blower itself. There is a chance it could be a module, wiring, etc aso...
Good luck
