    Hi All,
    Hope someone can help here. I have a 1998 318se and I am currently having problems with the heater blower. It as been working fine but acouple of weeks ago suddenly stopped working. First port of call was the fuse, but all ok there, then to the computer inside the car which appers to be working fine.
    I have removed the computer as I was informed that if this was the problem the fan would still work without it in place but on full blow and blowing hot.
    When it was removed the fan did not still work, so believe this not to be the problem.
    I have noticed that when I first get in the car in the morning and start it up that the fan does come on but only for about 90 seconds or so.
    Not sure where to go from here and would be grateful, if anyone has ever had a problem like this before, could please give me some guiddance as to what the problem could be.

    The final stage resistor is common for going on the e36, have a look here for rough prices http://www.c3bmw.co.uk/StockItem.asp...&Item=unassign
