Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 ford explorer..... when I turn on the
air or the heat after 5 mins it turns off then about
10mins laterms turns back on and it keeps
repeating ... tonight I went to use the heat the
same thing happened but now I noticed it was
blowing out warm air ?? :/

Does the fan operate continuously? Or is the temp of the air fluctuating?


Yes it does operate continuously but then turns off for about 5 mins and then come back on


If the blower motor is cutting off, then comes back on, you could have a motor which is burning up, cutting off due to heat. Could also be a heat related issue with the blower motor resistor. Surf the net on how to check both.
