    will be worth checking the plug that goes to the fan, a member on here had a problem with his

    As I originally thought it was the blower motor that was knackered. Real pig to change but managed to get it done without too much swearing! When I removed the old one the motor was virtually seized up. Thanks for everyone that helped out on this thread.

    Thanks for the update Tom ...fortunately you followed our fault finding diagnosis and narrowed it down to the blower motor instead of unecessary spend

    Hi,

    Sorry for the thread ressurection,

    My Aircon stopped working and recently my blower fan has also stopped working. The Final stage resistor was replaced a couple of years ago under warranty, and find it hard to believe that this has failed again?

    I removed my glove box to try and find if the relay (located behind) is at fault. (a) when the system is off and then activated I hear no clicking noise from the relay. (b) when I activate the aircon there is no clicking noise from the relay.

    If i switch on my fog lights I can hear the relay next to it make a click noise.

    I have tried swapping over the relay to the one next to it but then the system doesnt switch on at all (they blower relay is a brownish colour whilst the others are grey).

    Is there any other other way to test if the relay is faulty? I am trying to eliminate problems before purchasing a new final stage stage resistor.

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Dave
