Default Ventilation not working

Hi all,

I wonder if you can help me, about a week ago now my air ventilation has stopped working. So on the control panel if you try to get air to blow through the vents, nothing happens. I don't think it is a fuse or relay as I can hear a sort of motor whirling (if that makes sense) so what could it be, what part do I need?
Any suggestions

Kind regards,

Marc

Hi Marc.
Is the A/C not blowing at all through any of the vents, a local member had the same problem, so i had to change out the heater transformer / blower resistor.

1

2

3

After i changed it the blower would still not work, so i hooked up the T4 and forced the blower through 15% 20% 25% and so on up to maximum 100% then we tried the A/C and success the blower was working.

The motor blower fan relay resistor part is
077800-0580

If it turns out to be the fan relay try one of the traders on here Mickyboy, or Tom Holland.

It could also be the front control panel but they very rarely go wrong.

Hi Artic,

Thanks for your comprehensive reply��
In regards to the aircon, it does work, but there is no fan blowing it out, so would that still be the problem you described?

Warm regards,

Marc

Hi Marc.
It sounds the same as the owner i fitted one for, if it turns out to be the blower its self that is a massive job to replace, very intrusive to get to.

Easier if you drop the pedal box out (still requires a bit of upside down in the footwell action though)

Having done this job last year on my car, I wonder if it wold be easier to do if the entire dashboard were removed???


If you suspect the motor as opposed to the driver transistor pack thing (which I tried first, and it made no difference) remove the pollen filter and reach along the duct, and with the ATC switched on, spin the fan blades.


It might be that it comes back to life, this is very short term, but it will point you in the right direction.
