I was hoping you could advise me on a problem I'm having on a 99
Taurus. I bought it 'used' in March this year, and I guess I bought
I have the DOHC 24V engine. I was out driving today, and
stopped at a
light. I put the car in park, jumped out to get something out of
trunk, and when I got back in the car and put it back in drive, the
out. It was blowing at 'high' speed, and literally just
quit. I tried both
heat and air, and NOTHING blows out. I just had
it "recharged" two weeks ago.
We popped open the glove box, and checked for condensation, but
seemed dry. Still, my husband took the harness off,
waited a few seconds, then
reconnected it to see if the blower would
restart. That didn't work. Then he
disconnected the black/grey
connection and waited, then reconnected. No start.
We replaced the
blower motor; no go. Replaced the resistor. Nothing. :evil:
Tested with a voltage meter, husband says he's got juice (not sure if
knows what he's looking at--he's good at cars, but not
great.) He says when he
put the new resistor in, it was blowing, but
when he put it in gear, it quit
again. I'm not sure I believe that,
but is there anyone who can please tell me
what might be the likely
source of my problems? Should I buy a relay or switch?
fan (the one by the radiator) is on almost constantly--is this
related? I have a CEL on, but the guy who scanned it said it was O2
bank one, and dammit, they're not cheap, (130 for the
I can change a
tire or the oil, but I'm not very mechanically adept
when it comes to things
like this, and I'm DEFINITELY not in the
market to go back to the dealer again.
If someone can email me to
walk me through what I should do to make this thing
appreciate all the help I can get.
Thanks for any help,
PS LOVE the board!
