      Sean T. is the new TSOC President!   03/27/16

      As some of you may know, I started this forum back in 2010 in response to TCCA being sold to AutoGuide. I originally made this forum and called it the Taurus Club of Michigan (or something like that) purely as a joke, except a bunch of members from TCCA started joining. We eventually changed the name to the Taurus and Sable Owners Club, and we instantly started getting tons of signups from TCCA members in search of a new forum to join.  I only had my Taurus for about 6 months, and have moved on to the Mopar side. After 6 years, it seems weird for me to be president of TSOC. So as of today, I am 'stepping down' as President of the club and hereby hand the title of TSOC President to Sean T! I would say that most of you already know who he is, and I think he will do a great job as TSOC President. I will remain an admin of the forum and will continue to manage the server and forum software. Sean will be taking over all other responsibilities, including being in charge of the TSOC donations and money management. I will continue to pay for domain renewals, forum license renewals, and any other forum expenses, with Seans approval. Everybody please welcome Sean as the new President!

Blower Motor Not Working

10 posts in this topic

Just out of the blue, the blower motor quit working. I've checked fuses and relays, but nothing. A/C compressor continues to cycle on and off when selected, but no fan at any speed. I can hear the blend door operating as the vent control is switched through it's stations.

Any ideas?

Have you tried tapping or banging on the bottom of the motor to see if that jostles it back to life?

There should be a relay for it out in the BJB

one of the big square relays If i'm not mistaken.

The motor in my sister's SE died last year because of water leakage into the HVAC ducts from under the cowl.

On my 96 sable, mine went out in 2009 (13 years) at 150K miles. It reached its end of life. There was nothing left of the motor brushes just black dust. Water intrusion was not a factor on mine. I picked up a replacement one at Advance auto for $30 something. It fit perfectly, just had to transfer the squireel cage from the old one to the new one.

Stayed away from the dealer who wanted $140.

outatyme: I switched the starter relay with the blower relay during my initial check. Starter still works, blower still does not.

Brian_05_SEL: It hasn't rained here in months, but it worth looking into. I had bought a new cabin filter to install, then this happened.

k8crd: For that price, I may as well buy a new one.

Thanks for the help y'all. :thumbs:

I tapped on the blower motor and guess what... it came on... then quit. But another few taps and it's working, for now. New Motorcraft part is $65 from Amazon. The car has almost 160k miles, and the A/C system runs all the time.

Could also be if your A/C vent tube is clogged, I think the A/C water can drip into the blower. That was a theory I had with mine. Though after going though everything, my A/C Vent tube was clear, with A/C on no water drips inside, and with the garden hose, no leaks. Could just be age too :)

These cars aren't built to last forever :P
