Customer Question

having problems with my heat.
Submitted: 1 year ago.
Category: Car
Expert:  Edward replied 1 year ago.
Hello, I will try to help. See if the blower motor will run in the defrost mode. If it will, could be a faulty temperature switch. If it doesn't work on defrost (or any setting) the blower motor relay is most likely at fault (number 6 in this diagram) since your blower motor will run when wired directly to 12 volt source. Here is a diagram showing where the relay is. I've also included a blower motor diagnostic check list.

the heat doesnt come on in the defrost mode either,before taking the blower out it worked,the orginal issue was it was a short at the relay i replaced the relay and it has not work since{brand new relay}

Expert:  Edward replied 1 year ago.
OK, have you got power to the relay? And all fuses are good?
Expert:  Edward replied 1 year ago.
one diagram is showing a 20 amp fuse just under the blower motor. or right near it. Have you got that on yours?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i didnt see that one,all the fuses i checked were to the right of the blower

Expert:  Edward replied 1 year ago.

Check for that fuse, and also power to the relay. Let me know what you find there. You have a 12 volt test light or volt meter?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

yes i have a volt meter,i know that there is no power at the relay,20 amp fuse is not visible,i didnt even see it when you sent me the diagram of the blower,what number is XXXXX on the diagram.

Expert:  Edward replied 1 year ago.
It's not on that diagram. I'm under the assumption it had it if you had auto. climate control perhaps. If yours is manual, you may not have it. It's on another diagram that for some reason I cant upload. still working on it.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

mine is a 5 speed,

Expert:  Edward replied 1 year ago.
Here's diagram on the relay, you should have power to terminal 2. If no power to terminal 2. Run a hot wire to it temporarily and see if the blower works like it should then.

its getting kind of late,i'll have to try it in the morning,

Expert:  Edward replied 1 year ago.
alright, if no power to the relay, I would run a new wire rather than chase an open circuit. Wire it straight to the battery. That should fix it. If the switch in the panel is working correctly and will energize the relay. Give that shot.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

i tried what you siad and it still didnt work

Expert:  Edward replied 1 year ago.
I wasn't done assisting you, but since I gave such bad service I will opt out. thank you for using justanswer.com
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.
Hello. Different expert here. Do you still need assistance on this request? Thanks.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

yes i still need help

Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.
Ok. I will grab my shop manual and get back to you tomorrow.
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.

Please indicate if you have the conventional system, or the automatic system.

If I am understanding your original request, you are not getting power to the heater blower motor. Is this correct?
