The heat / ac blower in my 2013 F150 FX4 supercrew started

Customer Question

Hi there. The heat / ac blower in my 2013 F150 FX4 supercrew started cutting in and out recently and now does not work at all. The heat and a/c still function, as each can be felt passively when traveling fast enough to get some air movement through the dashboard vents.
I've replaced fuses, switched relays to try to isolate if that's the issue, replaced the blower resistor (behind the glove box), and tried a new blower motor. To date, nothing has fixed the problem.
Any thoughts on what to try next?

Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

Do you have a wiring diagram of the blower circuit?

Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

Do you have a voltmeter?

Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

The next thing to look at would be the switch or hvac controller.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I have a voltmeter. I don't have the wiring diagram. I should also mention that when I removed the original blower resistor there was some slight melting of the plastic / discolouration.
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

You may have a wiring problem or a short to power that could cause the melting.

HI there. Can you let me know what good the wiring diagram will be in this situation? Is there a procedure you can suggest, other than buying the wiring diagram
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

Does it have auto or manual temp control for the ac/heat?

Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

Wiring diagram will help diagnose, I have seen problem with the hvac module and it causes this type of problem. I would verify by checking the power and grounds to the module first.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
auto temp control, dual zone.
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

We have a company at our dealership that rebuilds the EATC modules, we have an exchange program.

Thanks. Unfortunately, other than suggesting that I buy the wiring diagram, I don't feel that you've provided any additional insight into whats going on. Again, the a/c and heat work. Further, there is no change in how the engine's cooling system is functioning, so I think its unlikely that the control module is faulty. I will be taking the vehicle in to the shop to have them assess.
