Question about 1995 Saab 900

1 Answer

Thanks for the input... Their reasoning for the resistor is because the fan stopped blowing on levels 1 & 2 which they claim can cause the AC to stop. When I brought it back to them today to see if they could make everything right before they lost their reputation :) they put it up on the lift and brought me to see the car and said they were able to find a leak this time with the ink test and showed me both (upper and lower) corroded ends of the hoses. Their claim is that b/c when I brought it to them the first time the problem was the low speed motor on the fan (which I agree it was) and they ran the ink test without any negative results they assumed that b/c I described the correlating blower issue in tandem with previously running the ink test that when they replaced the resistor and heard the compressor kick on that it (the ac) "would" work fine, instead of actually waiting to see if it would. So.... I said if they can replace these parts with the expense of the labor and parts of the resistor I would pay the difference but they need to make it right. I want to believe their honest people, they're a "saab specialist" ma and pa shop that give you the option of used parts before OEM parts, so I think I'll give them one more chance to get it right, if not, they are part of the BBB and I'm sure with little effort on my part I could be sure their reputation is known to all that I am in contact with. ugh.. I wish my Uncle were still around (he was my mechanic... and a very good one at that) I appreciate your commiseration :) !! - Eliana

What the mechanic done was to pull the codes from the ecu,in other words read the diagnostic codes stored and reset to allow the new transmission to work,the radio problem is not connected and you have to be very accurate and follow the directions by the book when you input the code.

AC blows cold air, fans stop blowing

I think you have a "variable speed resistor" problem, it's overheating. It's an electronic device usually located near or attached to the AC motor blower that controls the fan speed. This is a common problem with aging AC blowers with electronic controls.

I have an 06 mazda 3. About a week ago while at a red light. I noticed my AC stopped blowing cold. Then when I accelerate it blows cold. Also my engine started overheating. Ive concluded that the issue was...

if your engine is overheating could be the problem of the ac not working , check the temperature sending unit located by thermostat housing , if it is bad will not let the radiator fan come on when ac is on and will cause your high side pressure ac line to get to hot causing the high side switch to disable the fan , also check the blower motor resistor it controls speed of blower motor

My AC blows hot air at stop lights. It works great when the car is running on the free way, but does not work when the car slows down. Any idea what the problem is????

Have you radiator clutch fan check out, sounds like its bad, air blows through radiator and a/c condenser while driving and no air blows through at stops, will cause a/c pressure to go up and not cool.

2001 Jeep Wrangler heater blower stopped working

Yes I would go with the switch, BUT, does it have a resistor bank? That is, how does it reduce the speed? Many systems use resistors to lower the speed. Burnt or bad connections can cause this as well.
You can test the blower motor by connecting direct power from a source like the cigarette lighter if you are handy.
Most of the time the lower speeds konk out but the high speed continues to work this is the resistor bank that goes out.

My heater stopped blowing this morning.

Your heater blower fan unit is in need of replacement.
It's a difficult job so take it to a service center.

Heater Fan Only Works On High

This is 100% the Blower Motor Resistor, located adjacent to the Blower Motor. This is a common problem with Dodge. I had to replace my own and several dozen others on Chyrsler's, Dodge's, Plymouth and Jeep.

Make sure you disconnect the Battery and wait for 2-minutes to discharge the Air Bag System. Remove your Passenger Side - Dash -Glove Box for easier access.

Let me know if this helped...
