Have you checked the parts stores?


Is this the blower motor for the interior of the car?


There is a blower motor resistor and a HVAC control module that could be the cause.

My husband showed me. It looks as if the line is that connects to the motor fans are striped or torn he had to inplug the fans because my understanding is that the fans are only suppose to come on when the car over heats the fans be on all the time what do you think he knows about cars im just having a hard time finding the switch online ;(


Hey, I had computer maintenance to do, finally back. So now you are talking about the radiator cooling fan, and yes that comes on at a predetermined temperature when the motor is up to operating temperature. If the car over heats, one reason is because the fans are not turning on. The need to run, and if there is a problem with them, better they run than not run.
