Quick! heater blower switch question!
Posted 25 November 2003 - 08:07 PM
The heater blower only works in position #3 in Alice, and I need to get the correct parts from my parts car while I am in Haines for Thanksgiving. Do I just take the switch itself, or are the resistors located somewhere else? Is there anything else that could possibly cause this that I should pick up while I am there?
Oh yeah, and an early happy Thanksgiving to all! Be thankful for Subarus!

What do I have to do to fix it? is it the resistors or do I need to pull the blower and clean out the elec. motor?
Please help.. I'm freezing my rump roast off up here

I should note that there is a piece of plastic broken off from this particular blower motor resistor casing, so yours will look slightly different.
Hope this helps,

the URGENT Snowman says, and I quote
"The heater blower only works in position #3 "
This problem -- if by number #3 he means one click below high speed i.e. #4 --- can not be only the resistor block.
The switch by passes the resistor block when in position #4 or high speed. If it is not blowing in pos.#4 then the switch is at fault and he must grab it also.
If the URGENT Snowman means only in high speed then I am off base and should be tagged out.

And looking at a wiring diagram for an '88, it seems like the only thing it could be if the fan works in position 3 and not position 4 would be a bad fan switch. Bad resistors explain why positions 1 and 2 work, but not position 4.
Looks like I'll have to pay more attention next time.
