Q: AC and fan not working

asked by on March 16, 2016

Neither the air conditioner or the fan setting will work.

The information provided for your Mazda leads me to believe that the blower motor may be the primary concern as to why your car’s AC and fan are not working. If you try all the settings of your fan and do not feel any forced air coming through the vents, it is likely that the blower motor is the culprit. To be 100% certain, I recommend enlisting the assistance of a certified mechanic to come by and inspect your Mazda’s A/C system in person for you. They will quickly be able to determine exactly why your blower motor is not working and get it blowing cold again. Once these necessary repairs have been made, they will be able to inspect the entire A/C system and determine if any of those parts also need any attention.
