96 escort blower fan?

6 posts in this topic

My daughters escort blows air out on all settings but high, can anyone tell me how to test so I know to change the blower, or the switch, or could it be something else?

Check to see if there is power coming out of the Dark Blue with white wire that comes out of the blower motor resistor. If there is no power unplug it and check for continuity between where the dk blu/white wire and the dk blue/black wire plug into the resistor. If it is open replace the resistor. If there is continuity than it is possible it is the switch.

You can also ground the dk blue/white wire with a jumper wire with the resistor plugged in. If the fan turns on it is possible it is a switch. If it doesn't come on than its likely the resistor.

Make sure the key is on and the fan is working on the other speeds. The switch is the ground and the power goes to the blower first then to the resistor. High speed bypasses all the resistors and is grounded directly by the switch.

Thank you, hopefully I can get it fixed in the next couple days. With the temps we've been having the high fan speed in the car is needed.

As odd as this is going to sound you get the best heat with the blower setting not on high. I have proven this to myself plenty of times with a thermometer in the vent. Its the same for a/c the coolest air is always the lower settings. Granted full speed will get everything warmer faster!

Thanks Airjer, I found the dark blue and white wire just had a bad connection to the resistor, easy fix with no parts to buy (for once). Thanks again.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
