Try this on most heaters systems there is a in line valve that is connected to the thermostat by a small cable under the dash the cable might have come off or valve is not working properly,this should be on the main heater hose coming in to the heater core

2000 escort diesel van.interior heater has stopped working,checked fuse and its not that.any ideas ? any thoughts.cheers


likely your blower motor. but take connector off at blower, key on, htr on high. should have power at connector. check with a test light. If power is present, its your blower. If no power, and fuse is good, it's a wiring issue or your heater blower switch on the dash.

Your blower motor is not working. You must check it out first. Lets start with the fuse then the relay and last the resistor. If all these check out ok you have a bad fan blower motor. Good Luck!!!

you hit the nail on the head ,cold and silicone chips ,they do not like the cold weather they can be temperamental to say the least ,as for finding the faulty component you will need an identical car that works ok ,then when yours will not start try swopping bits till you hit the one causing the problem.or sell it for a nice manual diesel version,

Blower motor


fuse under the dash and under the hood but if fuses are good you may just have a bad blower motor check the wires on the blower motor first for connection before replacing

Heater/Air Conditioning Fan


Are you talking about the blower motor or the radiator fan? The blower motor is under the glove box in the circular black plastic cover. This is very easy to replace, a new one cost about $50 and just plugs right in. There is a 30 amp heater fuse in front over the driver seat under the dash. It's above all the other fuses, its black and rectangular. If that's not it it may be the blower motor

But if its your radiator fan its another ball game. First try the fuses and the relay in the fuse box under the hood, driverside. If thats not it, it could be the fan motor. f the fan motor is burnt out thats easy. Thats $130 for a new motor at the auto store and there are only 3 bolts that hold the radiator fan assembly in. Pull that out, change the motor out (3 more bolts) and put it back in, plug it in and your done.

If the problem is in the radiator fan and not the blower motor it could also be a busted thermostat. Not horrible, but if you have the 1.9 liter engine you have to take of the distributor, to get to it. New thermostat is $8.

I had to replace the blower motor and the ac worked better than great after. My recent problem is in the radiator fan. Not coming on at all. I replaced the motor, the relay, the fuses, the thermostat (was also broken), and the problem persists. This is a worst case senario. I think I have it narrowed down to a fusible link, but have to locate them.

Good luck
