what is wrong with my car it is past 24 hours
Expert:  George H. replied 3 months ago.

Hello, I just saw your question,

Does the blower motor run when you turn the key off when the battery is charged?

This is an automatic system where you set the temperature and the system controls the blower speed to do the rest?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
when even with key out of the switch
Expert:  George H. replied 3 months ago.

OK, under the right side of the dash is the blower motor, follow the wiring from the motor up to the blower transistor and replace the transistor. Two screws allow you to pull it down out of the heater case. Replacing this part will restore normal operation to the motor.

Let me know what questions you have about this

Thanks

This has already been replaced
Expert:  George H. replied 3 months ago.

Then it is the same issue, do you have a voltmeter to check the circuit and what is the brand and part number of the part that was replaced?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
The lights stay powered on the heater control where you change it from heat. AC. Defrost
This control panel always has power even with the key off we changed it and still have the same problem
Expert:  George H. replied 3 months ago.

That is a different issue than the blower running after the key is off.

If you remove the IG2 fuse from the underhood box does the controls power down? If it does the ignition switch is the fault.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
We will try that tomorrow thanks
Expert:  George H. replied 3 months ago.

OK, let me know what you find, the controls have a couple of power sources but the IG2 fuse is what should turn off when the switch is off.

Thanks

Expert:  George H. replied 2 months ago.

Hello again,

So you can't find the IG2 fuse?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
There is an IGN2 relay
Expert:  George H. replied 2 months ago.

There is a fuse as well.

It is 30 amps and is next to the low beam headlamp relay. No IG2 fuse.

Do you have the cover for the engine fuse block?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
It's not under the hood it is on the inside when it is removed the light still is on
Expert:  George H. replied 2 months ago.

The IG2 fuse is in the underhood fuseblock lower left hand corner one fuse up from the bottom

Customer: replied 2 months ago.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
