Good afternoon, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** am a Ford technician and I would be happy to answer this for you.

If you have replaced the resistor and are still having this issue then the problem is in the blower motor assembly. These have a tendency to run hot, and when they start to overheat they will shut off, almost like how a circuit breaker operates. I would get a new blower motor and then retest it. Let me know if you have any further questions :)

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.

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
