Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

My blower won't work! Every time I turn on the fan/heater it blows the fuse! AutoZone said it was a fan relay...I purchased one but wasn't sure were it was located on my '99 Jeep XJ Sport. After some research I believe it's in the pdc under the hood...? However, after replacing it nothing changed! Grrr...I have no heater/defroster/fan. It's getting colder out and I'm at a lose. I checked the switch/knob and found no issues. HELP!

    unplug the blower motor, see if the fuse blows now. If not then it is your blower motor that is bad. Also check the condition of the blower motor resistor plug, it may be damaged by high temps.

AC isn't working

when a fuse keeps blowing it can only be one of two causes. either the consumer is loading the circuit too much due to a bearing problem or rusty component, or there could be a short circuit to ground. disconnect the blower motor plug connector and turn your a/c on like normal. if it blows the fuse again, replace the blower fan motor. if not, start checking the wiring for any exposed copper that might touch the ground-negative.also inspect all the plug connectors for water damage and corrosion.

1990 honda civic I replaced my blower motor and resistor checked my fuses and relays all are good. It all started when the fan wasn't blowing at the speed I had put it on which was high on defrost then...

Check the ground wire to the motor--where it attaches to the chassis. Also look over the connectors carefully. Make sure the female terminals are fully in the connector and are engaging the pins of the male connector.

My heater works but wont blow out any vents. replaced blower motor

Under your hood, passenger side bolted right in the middle of your air conditioning unit is a lone relay screwed in with 2 screws. That was the reason my 92 Blazer wouldn't blow 99% of the time. Knew it wasn't likely the motor since mine worked sometimes, and motors usual are just good or bad. The low/med/high fan speed switch has a resistor in it that can also go bad, I changed that 1st, no change, swapped out that $6 relay and now I have a fan again :) Those are really the only 2 things causing your problem unless your wiring is a wreck or something unusual. Bonus: relay's a 5 min fix taking your time.

Heater on my envoy only works on 3-4 setting, could that be the switch.

Thanks for the opportunity to let me help. The blower control switch in your vehicle also uses a blower relay. This relay is generally located on the firewall on the passenger side near the heater fan. You can also look in you vehicle owners manual for the location of the blower relay, it may be also be located in the fuse and relay box under the hood. Generally speaking if the highest setting doesn't work on a GM vehicle it is a high blower Relay. This item is not expensive and can be purchased at most all you local Auto parts stores. If you have a Napa, Orielly's, or AutoZone these stores will also likely help you in the location if you are unable to locate this relay. Here is a general picturepepsiman1967.jpg The installation of this relay is either to remove from the fuse box, or if located near the heater fan housing then you will need to remove the mounting screws, remove the wiring clip, then reverse to install. I hope that this has helped you. D.R. Wilkins

Heater fan not works with direct power..and ac fuses test this an electrical control problem?

Likely either a bad switch or relay. I'd also probe all fuses(regardless of what they are for) with a test light just to make sure they have power at both ends of each (takes ten minutes and eliminates the possibility that you missed something there.)

Heater Fan does not work

Sounds like the fan control knob has shorted out. You can check the fan "blower" relay and fuse in the engine compartment but you need to make sure the control knob is good or you will keep blowing fuses and relays. If your blower fuse and relay are good, then just have the control knob checked and replaced if needed.
