Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD

1 Answer

Fan/AC Hi just was wondering what is involved in troubleshooting for the AC/Fan and if I'd have to take the whole dash out/off. The fan works minimally(most of the time all the settings seem to be stuck on "low", but it will blow on high at random), the AC is "cool" but doesn't get cold...the heater however works fine but of course without the fan, the air just "seeps" out....I think maybe the vacuum system is clogged or broken.....,but that wouldn't explain why the fan works sometimes..... Thanks so much.

Fan in dash is screeching when ac is on. Could it possibly just need cleaned or should I replace it. Is it the fan motor?

The screaching is comming from the fan's rotor bearing(s)...the whole fan needs to be replaced.

My 04 Altima 2.5S AC compressor wont engage, I took it to an AC shop and he told me he checked the pressure and everything is ok... no leaks. the compressor is not getting any power as well as the radiator...

You would need a shop manual for the wiring diagram for the ac to troubleshoot it.
There is a low pressure switch and a relay involved that could prevent the clutch from getting power. The radiator fan runs when the ac is running and high pressure is above 200 psi.

2002 ford focus fan knob not working at all 1 2 3 or 4 to turn heat on, although you can feel minimal heat coming from the vents.

Probably a blown fuse? Does the AC light come on when it's turned to MAX setting and the fan is on 1 thru 4 speed?It should.
Check all fuses. don-ohio

Heater/ac switch won't turn on fan? Checked

Always start at both ends of the problem...check for blown fuses, then hot wire the blower motor. If both check out as good, move to the next items...switch on dash and resistor, then relay. Very likely one of those items have failed.

I have a kia sephia 1998 and it keep overheating . I changed the thermostat and raiadotor And found out it was my fan. How do I test to see what part of the fan is not working?

One way to tell if the fan works is by turning on the AC, when you do this the fan should turn on.
If the fan works when the AC is on you may have a bad temp sensor, relay, fuse or wiring problem.
If the fan doesn't work with the AC then you would replace the whole fan unit as an assembly.
If your car doesn't have AC then you should just take it to a shop.

Having problems with AC fan

The bearings are going in your blower motor. You should be able to access it from under the dash, or under the hood. In the good old days they were all accessible from under the hood, but that made it too easy for us. I'm pretty sure if you remove the lower right insulator panel, below the glove box, you will be able to see your motor, and it is held in by three screws.

Blower fan only works on high

If it is working at all then the relay and fuse is good and the problem is either the little vacuum hose on the back of the control switch panel or the panel itself.
