Diagnosing a Blower Motor


Asked by May 16, 2017 at 05:15 PM about the 2013 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2013 Ford Explorer PI. The blower motor is
not operating. There is no air coming out of any of
the vents at any speed, but you can barely feel the
A/C and heat when the car is motion. I replaced the
main relay, labeled blower motor relay. I know there
is a TSB but can't seem to find any other info online
about this issue. Any advice?

Have you checked the blower setting switch in control assembly?

How do you suggest doing that?


It can be done by undoing wiring harness to it and crossing with paper clip to the four setting,s,but i think your blower motor may be bad,very seldom does the control assembly go bad.


Have you replaced the risitor?


That was the next piece I was gonna check.
