Q: AC fan broken

asked by on

The air conditioning fan is not working.

I will assume you are referring to the fan that blows air through the interior vents. In this case the component in question is the blower motor and it’s circuit. If the blower motor has a power and ground signal with no operation, the motor assembly itself has failed. If there is no power, the circuit including the resistor and fuses must be inspected for problems. It would also be wise to inspect the cabin air filter, as a clogged filter can hinder fan performance as well. Have an experienced technician, such as one from YourMechanic, diagnose why your air conditioning is not working and provide the required repairs.
