Why might the 30 amp fuse for the heater-AC blower keep blowing when you turn it on?

If the fan turns on, it could be a short to power (two power wires shorted together) causing the increase in amperage. If the fan doesn't turn on, it's probably a short to ground after the switch in the circuit; where power is bypassing the intended path, which is the blower.

If the AC stopped blowing air on your 2003 Toyota Echo, the blower fuse could be to blame. If the fuse is fine, it might be the blower resistor that needs to be replaced.

Likely the blower motor is bad, causing increased current and blowing the fuse. Replace the blower motor.

Blown fuse, defective blower motor, or defective blower motor resistor pack.

There might be a bad fuse causing the heater to not work. Check the fuses if they are all ok you may have a bad blower motor. when you turn the heater on and no air is blowing then it is your blower motor.

mor vehicle info would help, but blower motor can be shot without blowing fuse

If the heater is blowing the fuse when the blower is turned on, I would suspect the blower motor is defective or locked up. If the A/C is blowing a fuse, suspect a bad clutch, or locked up compressor.

When the front blower for heat and a/c work fine and the rear does not on the 2001 GMC Yukon it could be a blown fuse. Automobile manufacturers rarely have both of these blowers running off the same fuse.

The blower is drawing to many amps. Have it checked. If that's not it. your blower motor is shorted out. Om the motor to the frame.

Disconnect the electrical connection at the blower fan motor, put a new fuse back in and see if the truck starts and runs without blowing the fuse. If so replace the blower fan motor. If the fuse still blows, disconnect the ac clutch wire from the ac compressor and try again.

Check blower motor fuse Check to see if compressor is working

Defective blower motor? See if it is sgetting power Blown fuse?

check for a blown fuse that says heater or blower motor

Heater blower motor is defective and locked up, or possible short in the wiring.

Bad Blower motor fuse Bad blower motor resistor Bad blower motor Bad switch Evaporator plugged- not allowing air flow

the blower motor should be either on the passenger firewall or in the passenger floorboard below the dash

I dont know anything about cars but my blower stopped working in my car and I took it to the mechanic and he changed a fuse and it started working again. Then a couple of months later the blower stoped blowing again and I took it back to the mechanic and he said the fuse is fine it might be the blower moter, how can I tell, I think it's a loose wire because my radio was removed and everysince my radio was removed my blower has been giving me problems.

Your brake fuse might continue blowing in the 1995 Toyota Camry because you have a wire that is exposed and shorting out. You might also have an issue with the brake sensors.

The blower motor fuse is in the passenger compartment fuse panel underneath the dash on the driver's side. The blower motor fuse is a 30 amp fuse marked BLOWER.

Yes, there is a fuse for the blower motor.

could be a fuse, a relay, the blower motor or the blower resistor. It's easy to check the fuse, using the owners manual. I am not sure where the relay is, and it requires special tools or replacement with a known good relay to test. If the blower works on high and no other speed, then the resistor is bad. If fuse and relay are good, and blower does not work in any position, suspect the blower motor itself.

If the blower motor does not function, it is blown fuse, defective blower motor, defective blower motor resistor pack, or in rare instances a defective blower motor speed control switch. Check the fuse. If it is OK, apply 12 volts directly to the blower motor and if it runs, you probably have a defective Resistor Pack. Very common problem. The only fix is to replace it.
