RE: AC

The compressor engages but the blower motor is not working as in no air out of the vents. The blower motor is bad: it could be the brushes, wiring, or in need of a good cleaning. It’s not the fuse (number 11) because both the compressor and blower motor are on the same fuse.

RE: AC

Hi Morgan.

Your blower is dirty. But they all are. Try to find a clean blower on an old car. But that's not what's stopping your blower. For sure. Unless someone has poured grain or something in there.

Check your fuse. I think it is number 7. I'm not sure about US models. It's red anyway, or should be.

And concerning your other post, this is what can happen if you use a car with a low voltage current over time. The components get overheated, and accumulate more and more heat. At some point they brake down. I'm not saying that this happened here. But my suspicion is aroused.

Regards

Geir
