Customer Question

1997 ford explorer blower motor would work then not work. I replaced the resistor, that did not help. I put direct power to the motor and it runs. There is voltage at the motor plug but will not work when plugged in
JA: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?
Customer: 170000 auto
JA: Are you fixing your Explorer yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes. I have replaced the resistor. And tested the motor on a bench with battery pack and it works.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: could it be the a/c heater control switch?
