You also have to remember that the stereo has a fuse down by the driver's side door in the panel. I mention that because you didn't so maybe you over looked it? As for the other person having the clock reset AND having little power to windows, check the power comming from the alternator and the battery with a multimeter. Make sure you know what you are doing. It should read anywhere from 11-14.4 volts. Anything less, either of them are going bad. Also, try removing the radio and locate the "battery feed" wire. It;s normally yellow, but I think it's a different color in the Rodeo/Passports. Anyway, just look it up. With the car off, take the multimeter and the positive in the feed wire and touch the negative to a ground (mostly any metal will do). If you are not getting power even with the car off, you have a lose/broken connection somewhere. That wire supplies power to the radio to hold the info while the car is off, such as memory channels/clock/etc. For both of you: also check the power comming from the power wires to the radio, make sure they are around 12-14.4 volts too, then work back from there. If you are getting power, then the radio is dead. Hope this helps.

Location of the resister for the heater fan 350 ford 2006


Its under dash panel.

HEATER BLOWER MOTOR


Its faulty blower motor resistor. The low and medium speed on blower motor is controlled by resistor and its actual speed is high. So because resistor is not working, blower motors actual speed which is high is working.


It can be faulty blower motor or faulty blower motor resistor. Get the blower motor inspected. If it's faulty it has to be replaced.

Heater fan comes on intermitently (often after hitting a bump) and when it doesn't work niether does the rear defrost, could it be a loose wire or some sort of sensor?


Its common that the wire harness has melted where it connects to the blower motor resistor. To get to the blower resistor you must take off the modesty panel that hides all the wiring. The right side of this panel (to the right of the courtesy lamp) just swings out of the way on a plastic hinge, after you untuck it from the other side. It does not come all the way off, but it doesn't need to. After this, the other (larger) section removes with three screws. (This panel must be reinstalled correctly, because molded into it was part of the ductwork that routes air up to the defrost vent on that side. Make note of how it fits before you take it out.) Lay all this carefully aside where you can find them later, especially the screws.

Once this is out of the way, the real fun begins. The blower motor is behind your glove box, partially obstructed by an electronic relay box (BCM). The blower motor relay is behind the blower motor, jammed up against the firewall. Disconnect the wiring harness from the resistor and the motor; tuck it out of the way. You should not have to take the blower motor out to get to the resistor, but if it's in your way, go ahead. Be careful to move your head out from under the dash...the blower motor is heavy, and if it falls on your forehead, you'll have an embarrassing mark to explain to people for about a month. The resistor mounts with two screws.

You can replace the resistor or just replace the wire harness if it's melted which is a common issues after a few years of being heated up from the electrical current running through the wires.

Good luck and keep us posted.

I have a 1999 Jeep TJ. My heater recently stopped blowing any air. I have changed the heater resistor and heater fan/motor. Still nothing. I have checked all fuses....what now....


Hello Tom,
This problem can be trouble shot by checking: The fuse. Are you 100% sure it is good? Get a new one unless you are sure. You said you replaced the resistor but still check it again to be sure it did not cook recently. It will appear crusty,melted carbon deposits. If you bought a good NEW heater motor check it again by getting or making some cheap jumper leads and by unplugging the heater connector under the hood, connect one of the leads to the battery then to one of the posts of the heater. Connect the other jumper to to the other post and to the connector on the motor. It should whirl around and scare the heck out of you it you get the polarity right : ) now, onto something more fun and where I think your problem is. Your control panel.... Using a phillips screwdriver, remove the screws from your face plate/facia/dash moulding covering your stereo/climate control panels. Screws located under eye glass basin,in back of cigarette ash bin and below I think. It pops off and exposes the screws to your climate control module. 4 screw/nuts allow you to pull out your climate module box. Check your connections. Most likely, your selector switch is melted. Perhaps even the harness that plugs into it is melted too. Replace the blower selector switch (small screw removes it) with a new one. Autozone carries them. If your wiring is toast, make a drawing of your color wires BEFORE you cut them free (what post on the switch the wire plugged onto by aligning the plug orientation to the post orientation "mated connections") and close to the connector as possible making sure the wire is good. Get some heavier gauge wiring and splice in and solder neat and strong extensions onto the cut wires. While you are at your auto store, pick up the appropriate female plug in connectors to fit over the blower speed selector pins. Solder these onto your extensions as well and liquid tape all bare wiring. Plug them onto the correct plug to the blower motor switch. YOUR VERY DETAILED DRAWING that you made. When I did this, I made my wire extensions about 8 inches long so I had plenty of room to solder and work. Check your connections,tape them to avoid shorts and use liquid tape on the blower speed connections if there is bare wire. Turn your vehicle on run through your selector speeds. You should also replace your RELAY. It is located on psngr side under glove box. Buy a good one. Replace this even if it appears to be working as they can get worn and as your motor gets worn, allow extra juice to backfeed and kill your heater components again. I hope this helps. If all of this fails your wiring harness may be cooked but I think this is your blower speed selector switch. I will be on here to check on you the next few days to see if you need any more help. Let me know how things turned out so I can help you more if needed. This is a very common problem with this model. Take care.

2001 JGCL heater blower motor works intermittently If you wiggle wire on blower control unit it works. I replaced wiring with new Mopar wire set. Now, it does not work at all.


Check control unit for any burning or melting at contacts for wire harness. If damaged, change it. Also, you may have a problem with the blower motor causing excessive draw. This will cause switch /wiring to overheat. Make sure that wires do not get hot before stuffing everything back into dash.
