Customer Question
I have a 1996 Ford...
I have a 1996 Ford Taurus that I am constantly having to replace the capacitor controlling the blower fan. I have placed a new one in but fan is not working. Would I have to replace the entire power distribution box?

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved. This means the blower motor fan is worn, pulling too many amps causing controller to burn out. So you will need to replace the capacitor again and blower motor. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
