Question about 1995 Saab 900

1 Answer

AC repair... well they "looked" it over for me today and said that it was the blower fan resistor that was faulty along with a very dirty cabin filter. Both were replaced and I was told that the ac was now working well and when I picked it up and drove it away absolutely no cold air came through. Yes I am livid, so I called them but they were gone already for the day but I was told someone would call me in the morning....

I don't see a dirty cabin air filter causing your AC to fail - the cabin filter isn't connected to the AC system - it's in the vent feed from the outside, where air enters the car to be cooled. Having it filthy would only cut down a bit on the volume of air coming into the car, not on how well the AC system cools it. If the blower fan had a problem, I could see it possibly causing a failure, but I've never heard of a blower fan resistor - maybe a fan speed switch failing could cause it (that's known to happen with Audi cars), but Saab is somewhat different in their approach to car design, so I suppose it's possible. If nothing else, have them pull the service manual and show them the "blower fan resistor".

First off though, since you have your car back, I'd take it somewhere else, preferably an independent shop that specializes in European cars, and have them diagnose it. If they come up with something drastically different, I'd contact this place that you've been dealing with and let them know what has been found, and offer them a chance to make it right by you. Let them know that you may pursue legal action otherwise, as it's been apparent that they're blowing you off and don't really know what they're doing.

Did you get a return call yet? What did they say?

i dont know if you have a cabin air filter if you do replace it if its real dirty. most cars ac will have this problem if the ac is low on freon. when you check the freon. make sure the ac is on max ac, at its coldest setting with the fan on max. with the engine running check ac pressure. have someone hit the gas a little & see if the pressure drops. add as needed. most gauges from the parts store have a dial on the front. point it at outside temp & make sure pressure is the max for that range.

Fan for heater/air conditioner quit working suddenly


its the blower motor resistor that is faulty or the blower motor resistor wire connector that has a bad connection.Wiggle the wire connector going to the resistor with the ignition switch and the fan switch in the on position and if the fan comes on then the connection is bad but, if it does'nt come on then the resistor is faulty.

Need to know where the fan motor and resistor is located on the 2003 Ford Focus. Car overheats while idling, driving, in park, and it'll still overheat when the heater is on. Tell me what site I can find...


Cars usually overheat when the thermostat is faulty, coolant level is low, or the water pump fails. If your cooling fan on the radiator does not kick on shortly after the engine reaches operating temperature, you may have a bad cooling fan, cooling fan relay, or cooling fan fuse. If your engine is overheating, start by checking the fluid level, and installing a new thermostat.

A blower motor resistor is the device that controls a car's cabin heating and air conditioning unit's fan speeds. This usually won't cause the engine to overheat, your A/C fan may not function or only function at one speed. Here is a Blower Motor Resistor from Autozone: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/2003-Ford-Focus/A-C-Heater-Blower-Motor-Resistor/_/N-jk8uvZ91tag

Ac blower motor


Check fuse supplying fan is not blown,
Check blower control switch is operating OK,
Check relay controlling fan is operating OK,
Check variable speed resistor pack is not faulty (the resistor pack is usually located in the blower ducting, in the blower airflow),
Check blower motor ground connection is not missing.

When i switch on the ac, no air come out


Sounds like the blower fan is not coming on all the time. Also check for circulation.
For the fan, you have a resistor which not be be making a proper circuit for the fan to work. If the fan resistor is okay, then the blower motor is the problem.
If the vehicle has a cabin filter check to see if it is plugged. Good Luck!
