a/c blower switch

Hello, I have a 97 Ford Contour and the fan blower switch will not work on the Hi setting (other 3 work fine). I've searched for a blown fuse but can't find where it is. Any thoughts or knowledge? thanks.

Had this happen to my 98 Contour. Ford issued a recall in Oct 1999 for this situation. The "...Heater Blower Resistor may develop increased resistance which could potentially prevent the heater blower from operating on some speeds."

Mine also worked on every setting except high. Ford replaced this part and it worked fine afterwards. I seem to recall I had to have this fixed again later, but can't find the receipt.

If you haven't had this fixed already, you should be able to replace the heater blower resistor to fix. My manual shows it's located in the heater unit, and can be pried out after removing the heater blower motor. The blower motor is under the dash on the passenger side.


1) Disconnect negative battery cable.

2) Disable the airbag system. (Before proceeding, wait a minimum of 15 minutes to allow the airbag capacitor to discharge as a precaution against accidental firing.)

3) Release 4 clips (by pulling them out) securing the passenger side footwell upper trim panel.

4) Disconnect the motor's electrical connector.

5) Lift the motor's retaining lug slightly, twist the motor counterclockwise about 30 degrees, then remove the assembly.

6) Remove the motor control resistor by sliding a slim screwdriver into the slot provided in one end. Press the screwdriver in approx. 1/4" against spring pressure, and pry the resistor out.

I have a 1996 Ford Contour, I have a blower problem, the blower does not work on high, very little air. I read the fix from Joe on removing the blower and replacing the resistor, I can not get the blower motor to release, I think I found the retaining lug but when i lift it I still can not get the blower motor to release so I can remove it.

Can anyone tell me if the 98 Ford Contour has a " A/C Orifice Tube" in it? I bought one and trying to replace the old one, but looking at the system I can't see where it would go. Book doesn't all for one but the guys at the Auto store says it should have one.

Certain 1995 through 1998 model year Ford Contour and Mercury Mystique vehicles built from July 1, 1995 through December 31, 1997.


In some of the affected vehicles, the blower switch or resistor may develop increased resistance which could potentially prevent the blower from operating on some speeds.

Johnny Taylor did you find out what the issue was with your motor, having the same problem. Was working on high only, now the motor not working at all?
**/**/** **:**

my issues is with the blower motor, what i have done so far is, replaced the switch, replaced the resistor and checked all the fuses and relays but i get nothing no speeds work.i removed the blower motor and hooked it up to a 12v and it started right up .....i did not check wires or if there are any grounds any help would be a huge help.
**/**/** **:**

Replaced resistor, fan worked for three days on all speeds. Bought new switch speed switch; no change. Not getting power to resistor or fan blower motor. Switching from panel to defrost, etc. you can hear the flaps changing. Could it be a relay. Which one.Fuses all okay.

I have a 1999 Ford Countour that will not shut off when the key is turned to off postion, also tried unplugging the ignition switch this did not work either.. I have been told..this may be the body control module, I have never heard of such a thing. I have had to resort to unplugging the battery everytime I stop the car.. any solutions will be greeatly appreciated..
