Heater motor speed control


Asked by Mar 02, 2016 at 07:25 AM about the 2000 Mercury Villager 4 Dr Estate Passenger Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2000 mercury villager estate and replace this heater motor resistor,
that controls the speed of the heater motor 3 times now. what would cause
the resistor to keep going out? When it fails the only speed that works is the
highest speed setting the other speeds do not work.

I went threw 5 resistors in my car before one stayed working. Just kept bringing them back for warranty for replacement. Believe this or not but then I replaced the cabin filter as mine was pretty dirty. That seemed to help. But it is possible the blower motor itself is drawing too much power.

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

This makes sense about the motor that's what I was also thinking. The cabin filter was replaced about a year ago so that should be in good shape.
