97 2.3ltr blower questions
Okay I bough this used over 7 years ago and the a/c has never worked and the blower only worked on highest setting.
Recently there have been some problems with the pulley system that also seemed to effect the blower fan too because it no longer would work at any setting. The idler pulley, power steering pump and belt were replaced and briefly the blower worked again. Then the a/c compressor went on the fritz and no more blower. I just put on a new belt to bypass the a/c compressor and still no blower. I found a blown fuse and replaced that but still nothing.
I already know that the resistor pack is bad because the settings never have worked properly, but could that be the only thing? The question is should the highest setting still be working even if the resistor was bad?
Would problems with the belt tensioner have any effect here even though the AC compressor has been completely bypassed? Or was the timing of the pulley problems just a coincidence?
The obvious next pieces to look at would be connectors and motor. But at this point I'm thinking it might be cheaper and easier to just buy a plug in heater than to replace connector, resistor, and motor. Any thoughts?
