Q: AC blower working intermittently

asked by on February 10, 2016

The AC blower on my car only works intermittently. The mechanic says it is most likely an electrical issue since everything else was replaced and is in working order.

The main cause of intermittent blower motor failure for your AC is the blower motor itself. I would suggest having a technician, from YourMechanic, come out and replace the blower motor and test resistance on the winding and replace it as necessary.
