Question about 1998 Ford Escort
Hello. I'm in France at tyhe moment and have bought this car. It's great, but when I turned on heater blower (air conditioning) I get a rapid fuse-blow! I replaced fuse and for a spell it worked...and it sounded like (when I swithed it on) the main cooling fan comes on also...is this right? The air-con did work for a time and I haven't seen old owner to ask if she had any problems. Any suggestions? I've had a good look under bonnet to see if anything blocks air ways...nothing.
Ford had a problem with the blower resistor and the fan switch overheating. The blower resistor is located in the heater box at the base,where the passenger rests his feet. Look at the plug to the resistor,if it is melted you need to check with your local Ford dealer, there is a kit to repair this.You should also check the back of the switch for the same condition. Good Luck,hope this helps.
