Faulty Fan

Recommended Posts

:help: I have a 1991 Tarago and the interior fan has been playing up. Fan speed position 2 has never worked, now intermittently the fan doesn't work at all and position 3 is the same speed as position 1

Any ideas on which how to fix this problem???

Thanks

This is hard to explain without photos, but I will try. Usually my first point I check for an A/C blower that is playing up is the resistor pack for it. This is only really applicable to older cars as the newer ones have electronic controls. The resistor pack is usually located in/on the blower fan assembly. You usually access this by taking the glove box out so you can access behind it. Then on the blower fan assembly, usually on the joining ducting, there will be a small section approximately about 3cm x 5cm secured by a couple of screws. This section contains different lengths of resistance wire that is used to adjust the speed of the blower motor. Chances are, one or more of these resistors have been blown.

Thanks for a fast reply :rolleyes: ... A query on your response ... have you ever done this on a Tarago? I'm not exactly sure how to pull out the glovebox but I'll have a look at it.

In the meantime I've started pulling out what I think you'd call the fan control unit .. the bit with the fan levers on it. but I can't find a way to remove the cables - they seem to be firmly fixed. Is there a special tool required to remove these? Or perhaps they should be released from the other end??

Sorry mate. Only had to go about changing the resistor pack over in a 91 Camry, 96 Lancer, and 95 Commodore. Pulled various dashes apart as well, but no Tarago's. As for the cable, they are usually attached over a circular stem which if you squeeze together, can be lifted off. Once again hard to explain without photo's which I don't have at the moment. If you can't remove it on the control end, then yes, you need to go to the other side of the cable. My sister's Mazda 3 can only be done this way.
