New here and blower issues!

Hi all, hope everyone is doing well.

Iím new here, donít really do that much forum or car stuff though! I can do a few standard things (bulbs, oil, etc...) but I normally get it in the garage for bigger things.

Iíve found my climate control has packed in! Tried all the settings and nothing! A bit of research and Iíve heard that the resistor block can sometimes go and as I can feel the fan try when I turn it on or off, I suspect it might be that.

Iíve found one online for £20 on offer but I canít find the location in the car! Every video I find is for an older model so no good. Kinda pulling my hair out now, and the cold weather this week hasnít helped!

Iíll be much appreciative of any info or pics any of you have. Itís a 2016 Punto Easy+.

Much thanks in advance,

R

Re: New here and blower issues!

Hi

If it has twisty knobs..it has a residtor pack

If it has push button control.. its different

Personally
. I WOULD remove the fan itself.. and test it before worrying about the finer controls

The unit is basically unchanged from the 2006 grande

Re: New here and blower issues!

Your 2016 car should still have the same parts in its interior fan/heater system as puntos and Vauxhall corsaís going back to about 2005.

If you have a climate control model which you probably do then you donít have a resistor at all which might be why you canít find it.

You have a PWM unit which is stupidly expensive but also much more reliable than the old resistors, if you explain what the problem is, whatís working/not working and whatís displaying on the climate unit, then maybe we can give some better advice. If you want to just change the Ďresistorí and you do have a climate control model the. Youíll need to track down the PWM unit

This is the sort of thing you will need and should be looking for under the dash

This is a very good deal so if itís correct for your car (check part numbers) then you can bag yourself a bargain, they are usually £100 more than that.
I would check every single fuse one by one before changing anything

Cheers! It DEFINITELY not got a resistor block (well not like the one I almost bought!). I think Iíve got it diagnosed to the climate control unit bolted next to the fan, or one of the plugs to be more specific! Looks melted through.
