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.

Causes corrosion on the motor commutator.

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
