Question about 1995 Ford Escort

1 Answer

Heater/Air Conditioning Fan

My heat/air fan will not come on at all. I thought it may have been in the switch previously but today it will not come on at all. Where is the fuse to test the heat/air in the 1995 escort. What else would you suggest I check?
Thanks much.

    The heater fan stopped working on my 1995 Ford Escort 1.9L. It's not the fan motor and the auto parts store and Ford dealer can't get the heater relay -- discontinued. Any suggestions?

    The heater/ air conditioning fan stopped working. I thought that it was a fuse but when i looked in the fuse box on the drivers side there isn't a place for the fuse to go. in the box it says where to go but you look in the box there isn't a place where there should be a 30 amp fuse.

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

    Actually I found the problem with the fan not coming on. There are two more seriously hidden relays. Unbolt the air filter housing (12mm socket, 3 bolts). Move that out of the way and near the fender there is a rectangular shaped object with one 10mm bolt holding it on. Its there hiding. Unbolt it, its a rubber boot on it covering the last two relays. Mine were melted. Advanced was gonna special order one that they could have gotten for $70 but not the other. Forget that. I went to the ford dealership and ordered the right ones, both for less than $70. The problem is one of the wiring harnesses melted, but I'll get around that. Also you can used non OEM relays if you feel up to it. This link will tell you how to do it: http://www.feoa.net/modules.php?name=For...

Heater not working in extreme cold weather because fan wont shut off. fan has been replace and the computer has been checked. nobody knows what is wrong


I'm making some assumptions, here.. I've been told I make too many assumptions... but, I'm assuming that you're talking about the engine cooling fan.. If I'm correct in this assumption, my guess is that you've not taken the vehicle to a good, reputable mechanic or repair shop. There are several reasons that an engine fan would not turn off, and each reason would have to come from a qualified mechanic. For example, there is a sending unit for the air conditioning system that might cause continuous running... or a sending unit in the air conditioning system that could cause the same thing. To complicate that issue, quite likely your air conditioning system purposely kicks on the engine fan any time you run your defroster. Also, your inside heater should function correctly, regardless of the engine fan running continuously. If I'm wrong on that score, then your engine has a thermostat problem "to boot"... which, by itself, could cause poor heating of the inside of the vehicle. NOW, backing up a little, if you so happen to be talking about the fan INSIDE the vehicle that is part of your heating OR air conditioning, we have a little different matter on our hands... First, some vehicles legitimately have a fan running on slow speed at ALL times.. for continuous air circulation purposes (sometimes, you can't actually hear this). Also, I might add that THIS fan running all the time should not be a problem for the heater to work properly.

On idle the engine warms but no heat out of heater. Had system purged and no air. This is a 2010 Nissan xterra


The heater control valve could be stuck in the closed position. You say that you have no air. Are you saying there is no air coming out of the vents or no Air Conditioning? If you have no air coming out of the vents and you don't hear the fan, could be a fuse to the fan is shot or maybe your switch is not working. If the fan is not working and your driving and your car is up to operating temp. you should feel some heat coming out of the vents or defrosters. The chances of your heater core being plugged up could happen if someone used some kind of stop leak in the radiator and didn't follow the directions. Well that should have you confused enough.

Fan not working, car is always overheats. How do I make the fan work?


After a jumper test on the fans to make sure that they work, you might take a look at your coolant level or temperature sensor. The try testing or replacing any fuses or relays wired into your air conditioning and heating circuit. In my 1998 Buick Regal, the fans never run until the air conditioner or heating fan is turned on. Unfortunately, the A.C. compressor and the cooling fans also kick in when I turn on the heater fan switch. Your best option is to wire the fans to a manual switch on your dash or just drive really fast all the time.

My air conditioning and heater work but my air conditioning/ heater fan does not turn on


You need to get to your fan and test the resistance on the fan harness. If that checks out OK I would look at the switch. I am surfe you have already checked the fuse.
