Grand Punto heater fan resistor

Hi all

Not posted before

Sad to say little problem with heater fan it don't work.

It's a 1.4 active sport no aircon reg Dec 07

Checked fuses,fan motor and had connectors on and off.

Where is the resistor i've got glove box out but can't see it or do you need to take all heater box out.

On the bright side if it ever works again it will be dead quiet without all the leaves in the fan !

try sticking it on speed 4 if it still doesn't work its likely to be the motor is kaput (4 bypasses the resistor pack)

get a multi meter and see if you have a voltage at the plug that goes onto the motor

Re: Grand Punto heater fan resistor

Thanks for quick reply Andy.

Put meter on and top speed it's 1.69 volts and reads about same on other speeds.

This afternoon I had fan motor out gave it 12 volts and it jumped off the step ladders so think thats working but I won't be doing that trick again.

No feed when fan switch is in off position of course.

Re: Grand Punto heater fan resistor

Thanks for all your help everyone.

Hope to have another look tomorrow if weathers not too bad.

If no joy then it's a visit to a Fiat dealer.

Any recomendations for one in or near Wigan.

Chorley Fiat Blackpool supplied but it's a bit to far.

Re: Grand Punto heater fan resistor

just look for melted/burnt wiring at resistor, you will see it easily enough.

p.s. resistor is near where passengers toes would be if they had legs stretched out

Re: Grand Punto heater fan resistor

If I'm looking at right thing in a white plastic housing with multiplug on that has five connectors green n yellow, green n black, blue n red, plus two thick wires that go to heater fan, should be one brown, one orange but on close inspection in between snow showers I have two brown going into connector so yes orange wire is burnt at end.
Still looks good enough to do job or does it mean I have problem somewhere else or bad connection in multiplug to resistor, how do you get resistor out ?

Re: Grand Punto heater fan resistor

take multiplug off (press in clip and pull) and look at the end of it, are the terminals clean or black and burnt?

Re: Grand Punto heater fan resistor

Back on the road with working fan on all speeds, yes it was bad connection on orange wire to resistor. Not the best bit of electrical design big thick wire with cheap little connectors. Then to put multi plug it in a place that's going to be kicked when front passengers stretch out their legs.

Top tip when checking multiplug by waggling make sure engine is running as I think relay don't power without engine running.

Re: Grand Punto heater fan resistor

I stand corrected Mr T now only give lift's to dwarf's and make sure they don't stretch out but it's still not the best bit of design
