The only places I've found those types of parts locally are a dealer,(expensive) or a junkyard,(used, no guarantee), you might be able to find something online with a Google search. I found one at a junkyard and the entire thing was about $110 at the dealer. I was able to change just the switch as I thought it was the reason that I only had the two top speeds on the fan. The problem is, I've been told is a resistor located at the heater box that I have yet to find.
Change blower fan control switch in the dash
The vacuum switch/actuator for the fan shutter is under the dash directly below the radio . IT is NOT easy to get to.
its a relay in the dash or check ur switch
Run a fused HOT line from the fuse block to the switch under dash - the other end to the cooling fan
Hi, The blower fan is under the dash on the right side sort of behind and a little to the left of the glove compartment. Steve H.
A ceiling fan speed control switch is wired the same as an ordinary off- on switch. If it is a replacement, look at the wires connection on the existing switch and connect the new speed control the same way.
This has been one for me also. I got an entire switch assy for a '97 at a junkyard. Mine only showed a small bit od black at the plub so I replaced just the switch itself because I only had the top two fan speeds although it could be the bottom two or none at all. The problem wasn't the switch, it was the heater resistor located on the blower housing behind the glove gompartment door. It's real easy to get to, just press in the sides of the glove compartment door (their flexible) and the resistor is right there. It's held in with one small screw, just be gentle with the replacement (dealer 33.80) and all the fan speeds are back. also unless the switch is broken, sometimes you can clean the contacts of the black film that builds up were the switch contacts meet, just remember to put some di-electric grease back on it when your done to prevent corrosion
Bad fan motor? Check to see if you are getting power to it Bad Switch? Bad fan relay?
are you talking about the one that controlls fan speed its out side under the hood on side of heater box
The fan does not have a switch - the thermostat switch runs the fan.

The fan is located under the dash on the passenger side. You do not have to remove the dash. Access the fan by removing the panel on the bottom of the dash (just above the passenger's feet), held up by two or three screws. The fan assembly (motor and squirrel cage fan) is held in place by four (if I remember) small bolts up on the underside of the dash, which is a little awkward to get to. Remove the bolts and the assembly will drop down. Disconnect the electrical plug (a catch must be released with a small screwdriver) to remove the assembly. Replacement is reverse of this procedure.
AnswerMore than likely you have a short in the fan motor. will require replacement.Don't forget the wiring in this circuit could be faulty, the fan switch, even the fan relay can cause a short.
The fan control switch is located in the bottom driver side of the radiator if your fan does not turn on when the car has heated up to temperature unplug the fan switch and jumper the plug not the switch side if the fan comes on the switch is bad.
The fan switch, on your 1986 Chevy, is located on the fan of. The switch will have three wires going to it, from the temperature sensor.
replace the blower fan resistor located under the dash behind the glove box
You may have a bad ignition pig tail. It is in the steering column behind the ignition switch.
Run a lead from the positive on the battery to the fan. If it begins turning the problem is in the switch. I wired a switch on my dash for the fan.
I have done this a couple of times. On right side of dash where the heater and fan controls are, at the bottom of that panel are two screws withPhillips heads. Pull two screws and set a side in a place where you don't lose them. then, push up and pull trim panel towards you. Should come out with ease. behind Trim panel should see three mounting screws. then pull cluster out of dash. At the top of the cluster is your fan switch which is mounted by two more screws and a four wire plug attached to it. unplug wire and pull screws and switch should be loose. last, (with care) pull the round knob attached on the front of switch. Reinstall new switch in reverse order and you should be good. Keep in mind, make sure you disconnect the battery before you proceed with switch replacement, and it would be wise to check fuses before to see if that is not the problem. Good luck!
it might possbile Fan is out. or check Fuse. if Fuse was still good then Fan is out what you do is you look for the Fan blower inside of dash. somewhere. I had replace my in dash. was not easy to put all together since replace the Fan. Good luck. What year Escort? The fan motor on my 97 is under the glove box, fairly easily accessible. Be sure to check connections at fan motor, I had a connector that fried, I replaced the connector and it worked fine.
There is no radiator fan switch on the s-series.
check fuse , fuses located under dash left of steering column. second check heater fan switch finally the fan motor located under hood passenger side
Check your radiator fan switch and your fan switch coolant sensor .
need to replace the blower motor relay located bhind the fan under the dash
what "fan" switch? there are 2 fans-radiator fan (electric) and interior "heater" fan. ***the interior fan switch is on the dashboard, just above the radio. it is a "bar-grasp" switch with white dots above the switch. the rad. fan switch is controlled by the ecm thru. the coolant temp. sensor. addendum: ***is for a '95 galant. your int. heater switch will, more than likely, be different
