So, just as the temps are reaching 100 degrees here, my blower isn't responding to the rotary dial in the Climate Control Panel. Luckily the blower seems to be stuck on, but it is in the lowest fan speed so it's not moving much air. Pushing the 'Auto' button and turning the knob does not affect the fan speed at all, even through the LEDs on still light up when the knob is turned, (including the orange one "off" light). The fan also continues to blow after the car is turned off and the key is removed from the ignition... <p>I checked the fuse, pulled it and reinserted thinking it may "reset" but to no avail....<p>Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: Strange blower issue.... (TWMn)

hmm... my temp sensor (little fan behind the slots) seems to be working fine... it's the main blower that moves air through the vents that isn't responding... I assume it's either the blower itself or the switch? I was just wondering if this is a problem that anyone's come across before, but it's not looking like it's a common thing....

Nope. Suspect you'll have to take it to dealer.

Re: Strange blower issue.... (855turbo95)

getting stranger.... yesterday I get in to come home from work and the blower is on full force instead of on a low setting, still non-responsive to the rotary control.... I get home, turn it off and pull out the key - still blowing full force. I close the door and lock them, still blowing full force... I let it sit for a while, came back out to the garage and it is still blowing full force. The only way I got it to turn off is by pulling the fuse. <p>I guess the good news is that the actual blower is still working(?) as it wasn't making any strange noise or anything.... Is there anything between the rotary switch and the actual blower that could be causing this?

You know that the blower runs for about 7 minutes after running the AC for extended periods, right? It states this in the owners manual, for drying out condensate in the system and so your AC doesn't smell.<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=117673" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=117673</A>

Re: (TWMn)

Yes, I'm aware of that and have experienced it before, but this is different and was longer and at higher speed than the normal period... I'm just wondering if there's any known problems with the rotary switch that would cause the blower to not respond to it, or if ultimately major components will need to be replaced.
