2000 Town Car AC Blower working off and on

I have a 2000 Town Car Cartier with 75000 miles. It has been great, but over the past month the AC has been acting up. Actually, it is the blower motor. Some times it works fine, and other times it won't run at all. Everything else seems fine. You just never know.

A coworker suggested that the refrigerant may need checking, but would that also make the heater blower not work as well?

Any suggestions before I take it to a dealer?

    My wife's 2000 Town car just started doing the same thing. The blower shut off on the way into town, then just came on in the evening. This morning, I started the car and it worked just fine, but when she was driving into town, it shut off for about 20 minutes, then came on again. I've had a few people say it could be debris in the blower or it could be a short? Any other advice would be helpful.

    Drove the car this afternoon. The air was ice cold. Went inside for a few minutes went back to the car and started it up. NOTHING!

    Other symptoms: fan speed has a mind of its own.

Is it at all possible to reset the distance to empty reading on the dash? 2000 linciln towncar cartier

Distance to empty is based on the average fuel economy for the last 500 miles driven. You can reset this by unplugging the battery to set it to default but that is the best you can do.

2000 Town Car Cartier, A/C will not come on. You can change to manual/ac/Defrost/Vent/Manual Fan/Change Temp nothing. Fan will not blow. Play with it for several minutes/turn car off and with...

It sounds like vacuum is not getting to the vent, heat and A/C controls. Find the vacuum can. It may be under the hood on one of the inner fenders. The "one-way" check valve is usually located in the line and close to the can, make sure it works properly. The valve could be the very thing that's causing the problem. Trace the lines back to the vacuum block at the intake manifold or fire-wall, and also back to where the line goes thru the fire-wall. Check the can for leaks or obvious holes. They used to be just a plain metal can, but it could be a plastic ball. Check the lines as you go, for breaks and rub-thru's. Move the controls thru all settings and listen for vent door movement. Worst case is a bad vacuum motor or air flow position selector switch, and/or a faulty Blend Door Actuator. If you have been driving around with the Temperature knob or control set at the same spot for months, move it from fully cold to fully hot several times and wait for the air temperature to change each time. This will help reset the blend door and vacuum control system. Hope this helps... Let me know what you find.

Could also be the control panel, the relay(s), or the blower motor.
