I'll go one step further and say that if you're blower motor works on high and you have the card type Ford blower motor resistor, no further diagnosis is required. Sometimes you will only have low and high speed settings. Do not forget to share and love our reference to help further develop our website. Saved somewhere around 160 dollar, hoping to get two more years out of it. In this case, the blower motor must also be replaced.
If the blower is still malfunctioning, you may need to replace the motor. Just throwing this out there in case anyone else with an older Ford has run into this problem. On the automatic temperature control system they further complicate the system by using a module. This is done, so the resistor or a control module is cooled down by passing air. This happens often in many cars. It is easy, you should use the save link or put your cursor to the graphic and right click then select save as.
The four wire connector that plugs into the resistor module needs a thorough inspection. It's held by two screws and is easy to replace. Remove the heater blower motor switch resistor 18591. Hey guys yet another how to from a mechanics point of view. And that we also consider you arrived here were trying to find this information, are not You? I did a little checking with my meter and a jumper wire and ended up jumping out the common ground to the med high speed wire. Today it is a blower motor resistor for a 04-08 Ford F150.
It uses a large transistor as the control element mounted in same type gizmo as would be the resistors. Heater Blower Motor Switch Removal Remove the battery 10655 ; refer to Section 414-01. Posted on Dec 17, 2010 On the blower box on the firewall there is a small orange fiberglass piece wires going in to it. Disconnect the temperature control switch connector. Often a visual inspection of the resistor reveals the problem. When this resistor module fails drivers often complain about losing individual blower motor speeds. If you observe any damage or discoloration of the terminal, you should always replace the connector.
Of course it would have to be a hacker kind of guy, as this module is not in the books anywhere. Anyway I would suggest checking all fuse's both inside and outside boxes first then locate blower relay swoop with the one next to it and test blower if its stil not working its the fan speed switch! I did see a wiring harness going to the blower housing itself. You can use to get an idea of how the circuit operates on vehicles without automatic climate control. Remove the temperature control switch knob. The resistor is under those and it is a black box that is about 5x2. Keywords for Ford Blower Motor Resistor Location :.
The question becomes, why did the fuse burn open? Things like leaves, twigs, nuts, pieces of a ripped cabin filter can jam the blade of the blower motor. I figured I should be able to find the resistor on the bottom right of the blower from the front of the truck , but from what I've read several times here, the resistor might not be there. In the 2008-2011 Ford F150 the blower motor resistor is also located behind the glove box, but is installed in the right side of the plastic air duct. This comes with new resistor, new truck side plug, and 4 wire crimps. When in proper position you can then cut each string or wrap and pull it out, leaving the brushes snap to.
If the blower motor doesn't work at all, the blower motor itself must be tested first. I did see a wiring harness going to the blower housing itself. In many cases when this situation occurs, you have a blown fuse. In addition, the replacement parts are also less expensive. Just throwing this out there in case anyone else with an older Ford has run into this problem. Music: Malik Bash - Apollo.
Anyone have a picture of it? In no way does dubaiclassified. A blower motor resistor or a blower motor control module is the part that controls the speed of the blower motor. Melting means high contact impedance. My blower only works on the lowest speed setting. When you buy replacement blower motor resistor modules from the Ford dealer they are much more expensive and they sell the pigtail connectors separately. It's held by two screws.
