The Fan In My Car Doesn’t Blow. Relay, Fuse, Or What

Posted in Ignition Systems | Asked on Aug 9, 2010

About a year and a half ago, I got in my car and noticed my AC was not working. Actually the fan just wasn’t blowing. I could feel hot or cold air when I put my hand over the vents but it was not coming out. Because of money, I have delayed fixing it. However, when I started my car today, I was blasted with air. This had happened once right after it broke. I was so excited it was working again. When I got home, I turned it off and on a few times to make sure it was really working and it did. About 30 minutes later, I got in the car to leave and when I started it, the air did not blow (:-() and I was back to where I was before.
Luckily now I realize that the fan does work so it must be something with a fuse? Or I heard it may be the relay (whatever that is). Any mechanics out there have any suggestions? I have a 2004 honda civic.

    well most likely a switch or a bad wire if it wasnt working and then it started and then it dont

    Sounds like a bad ground wire connection on the blower motor. That’s probably under the dash on the passenger side. If there were a loose enough connection, slamming the door or just driving can cause it to contact intermittently or lose contact, allowing the fan to work sometimes.

    there a relay for the air conditioner that will go out and cause it not to work try checking that,there also a fuse for it in the main fuse panel on the inside of the car,the owners manual tells where it is and what size to use back in it,good luck.
