I have a 1991 Mercedes 190E 2.3. When i go to turn on the heater within the car there is no blowing action. I've tried pressing all the buttons and nothing. I recall the heater acting up some time back; sometimes it will come on and sometimes it wont. There is no noise whatsoever. After several minutes i can feel heat slowing wading out but no blowing action.

I've checked all the fuses and they seem fine (at the very least there is a sliver of silver on the odd looking fuse). If i had a decent Mercedes manual i would check it for such a problem but alas i only have that crappy photocopied one making its rounds.

Thanks for any tips on getting my heater working.

The usual suspects: Fan switch or Blower Motor. If you give the blower motor 12V directly at the motor (or @ the end of the relay) and it works you've got a bad switch (or relay).

Where do i locate fan switch or blower motor? I can take a photo under the hood but from there I'm lost as to where to look.

thanks

There are multiple threads on blower motors.
It's in a housing under the wiper assy.
Fan switch, I'm not sure...
Anyone?

It's on the dash. Its the "thing" you use to change the speeds of the fan..

Just more info. When i adjust the fan speed switch nothing happens. When i select the blow type switch i can hear a clicking sound coming from the squirrel cage. There is no blowing though. On every selection i can hear a motor from the engine running:



The highlighted red area is the running motor when i have the switch control selected on any item accept (0). I checked the 25a fuse for the blower motor and it is fine.

I will proceed with taking apart the bulkhead, wiper, etc to get access to the blower motor and will test it with a 12v charge. I dont have any spare fan switch to test in place of my existing one so if the motor works then i wll proceed with purchasing a new switch.
