The fan in my 98 voyager completely died, with nothing at all happening when I went through the various rotary switch settings.
When I drove up to the shop, it came on and did fine.
It died again an hour later.
Drove to shop, it's fine.
This has happened a bunch of times by now.
The folk there suggest that it's probably the fan
motor with a "dead spot" (they had a differnet term
which I've forgotten). They figure what's happening
is that sometimes the motor shuts off with everything
positioned just wrong, so turning it on does nothing.
Then, a bit later, after some potholes.... it gets
shaken and moved enough to get to a "live" portion
and comes back.
They recommend replacing the fan assembly (this is the
one that's right behind the passenger side glove compartment).
It makes sense to me, but I figured I'd ask around
for a second opinion before committing the cash.
Thoughts? Thanks muchly.
