Wouldn\'t you know it !

I get the Jeep running real good and I take it out for a little ride last night when it starts to rain, so I turn on the defrosters and there is no air coming out, today I started looking for the problem, the fuse is good and there is 12 volts to the fan switch, so I am thinking do I want to tear all that mess out to get to the blower motor. I live in Florida, I don't need no lousy heater and the wife can wipe the windshield when it rains. So what if, we are going up to NC and TN in late Oct. I can take a little cold, I guess. We'll think about it anyway.

Happy Trails

Re: Wouldn\'t you know it !

check the wire on the back of the blower motor.... it's hard to see because it's under the battery tray(where it gets broken).. run a wire right from the + of the batt to it and see if the fan blows, or if it just sucks..LOLOLOLOL

Re: Wouldn\'t you know it !

I tore out my heater as soon as i got my jeep. I live south of you in Ft. Myers and I really REally don't need the heater. I plan on getting one of those electric passenger ones, if i need the heat. Plus i got holes in the floor boards, so i get constant heat [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img], but i also get the bad engine smells [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]. Just invest in some jackets and sweaters.

Re: Wouldn\'t you know it !

Elusive, you hit the nail on the head. The wire was off and while I was there I pulled the battery box out and cleaned and painted it. Thank you!
