Internal air blower/fan

Post by Gingermagic »

Hi all,

The whole control panel, for our air flow, seems to do nothing.

I also don't know exactly how it's supposed to work, but can assume that the rotating dial should increase the speed of some sort of fan.

Is there a fuse or two that I should check for this.

It would be nice if it was just a fuse, but I'll ask for pointers on getting to the bottom of the problem if the fuses are fine.

Which fuses should I check?

Thanks,
Damian

Did you get anywhere with this, mine failed a couple of years back, firstly there was a electrical burning smell followed by some white smoke.  A common problem I hear indicating that the motor has seized up and needs replacing.  Have not got round to it yet as it requires the dashboard being removed to get access.

If your wipers are working then not the fuse....unless mod in place...as they share same fuse with blower on early vans.

Thanks for the fuse box list Mocki.

I've been waiting for some fuses to arrive, because one of them disintegrated when I took it out to test it.

Last night, I checked ALL of the fuses in the glove compartment, one by one. All fine and I replaced the broken one.

Still nothing from the heat blower/fan, so the problem must be elsewhere.

Strangely, I've noticed that my rear wiper and screen wash are no longer working either. That's odd. Especially as I've only just checked all of the fuses. These couldn't be connected to the poptop being up could they? I've currently got that up, as the van sits on the drive, but I can't see why it should affect the rear wiper and wash. I'm just clutching at straws, because they were working fine!

Heater blower switch failed on mine, it can be tested and also serviced once removed if you want to check before ordering a replacement, the switch housing just clips together but take care not to lose the small spring inside.
