  • 1999 Mercury Sable fan switch

    my fan switch does not work when turned to low or medium. It only works on high. I finally got the dashboard out and replaced the switch. Still problem exists. Is there any place on line I could go to get a wire diagram and see how this switch is wired or where the fan motor in located in the vehical?
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Bob

    I have heard that there is a high and low speed controller on the later fan itself. I would have it looked at or throw in a aftermarket/new one.
    Progress,.... that is what I keep forgetting ;)

      There will be (i think this is the proper name for it) a resistor inline with the switch wiring. This is the thing that regulates the voltage to the fan thus giving you the different speeds. I had the same thing happen on a Ford Mondeo i used to have, it turned out to be located in the passenger footwell. Strange but true!

        You are right about "resistor". there is a resistor pack next to the fan motor and usually it attach to the "air hose/pipe" after the blower. It is nothing but a modue with couple "spring" resistor and those "spring" probably broke/blew due to heat/resistant.

          That the one, it was a spring type thing that had broken. It was quite expensive if i remember as well. Typical Ford part, ie it could only be bought new!!!
