Customer Question
The blower on my...

The blower on my 2002 Ford Explorer quit working at the same time a plug burned out on a module mounted just behind the fuse box under the dash. We cut the wires to stop it from burning and now everything thing else seems to work except the auto headlights. There must be some connection. All the fuses are good. I am not able to find a hot line coming to the multi function climate control.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Explorer yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes l and my son were trouble shooting it. My biggest question at this point is what is the module called that the plug burned out on?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I checked the relay and it is good. I think the problem is with something that controls the relay.

its called the daytime running lights control module. get a used one and install. also check connections to headlamps and make sure there are no damage or burned out bulbs

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
That is fine. I will look at it again on Saturday.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
That generic drawing you sent me does not help. It needs much more detail. If you cannot find one then tell me. The one you sent is not specific to that vehicle. It needs wire colors and individual wires marked on it.

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.
