1998 Ford Fiesta 1.25 Zetec, heater blower not working, suspect

Customer Question

1998 Ford Fiesta 1.25 Zetec, heater blower not working, suspect blown fuse/relay but unsure as to where in the fuse box these are located as I am unable to locate a decent fuse box diagram, can you help?

Check fuse 16. It's a 30A fuse.

 

If it looks ok, use a test lamp to make sure it is live with the ignition on.

This is my dilema, I have checked all fuses with ignition on, you mention fuse 16 but I dont know which port is fuse 16 other than it holds a 30amp fuse (choice of 3, all working).
Expert:  Bill replied 4 years ago.

Here is diagram of fusebox.

Did you use testlamp to prove that fuses were live at both ends.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Tested both sides of fuse, thanks for the fusebox layout, it will help for the future. Any ideas? if relay supected, I am in the same dilema as for the fusebox layout (which is which)...
Expert:  Bill replied 4 years ago.

If you have checked the fuses and it is live when ignition is on then there are two possibilites.

 

Either the motor has packed in or the switch is faulty.

 

If the motor runs on high speed only then resistor is faulty..

 

Your next step is to check that the live feed is getting to the motor. It's not a relay fault.
