Have Subaru Questions? Ask a Subaru Mechanic and Get Answers ASAP
Do you mean the fans out at the radiator are not working or the blower inside the car?
Ok, do you have a test light or volt meter so we can do some testing?
What number fuses did you check? Inside the car or under the hood and finally,
Auto climate control or manual climate control?
Ok, I need to have you check the wiring at the blower motor. Should have power on the brown wire and the black/yellow stripped wire with the wiring plugged in and the fan switch on 0, then when you switch the fan speed to any speed, you should see a voltage drop on the black/yellow wire.
Please check this and let me know.
Yes, it is under the glove box, I am in the US so maybe my wiring diagram is different then what you actually have on yours. Seems odd. I am sending a diagram of the connector that might give us some clarity for testing.
When you checked the fuses, did you check them for power or just look to make sure they weren't popped?
Ok, looks like #17, #1 and #2 all need to be checked for power with the key on. These are the power source for the blower relay so I would like to know they are actually powering up when you turn the ignition on. It's much easier to check these then the blower relay which is not very easy to access in comparison.
Please let me know.
Ok, of course I am showing different numbers for the fuses, but I think you need to back up and go back to the fuse box under the hood and look for a blown fusible link. These should be labeled as SBF on the box cover. Square with clear tops, look into them and see if any are blown. It's the likely culprit that feeds the fuses for your rear defrost and your blower motor.
Sometimes they won't look burned, so it's best to take a flashlight and look at them, then push them side to side to see if they open. Been fooled a couple times by them. I will continue to look at my wiring diagram to see if I can come up with the specific link for you to check in the meantime.
Ok, I am sorry, but I am going to bow out and open this up for the other experts.
First, I don't have the correct wiring diagram to try and figure out what is going on, second it's quite late here.
Please don't reply,it will lock the question back to me and the other experts won't see it.
