Only had this car 1 day & bought it cheapish with a few issues. Some cluster lights out, blah blah!

Now the main issues is that the heater blower motor does not work in any position (1-6) now my experience of other cars is that if it works full on, then it the Thermister gone, but if not, then???

Also the EC & recirc buttons do not work/light up. Could all these problems be related, or are they seperate issues?

Currently the car passes warm air into the car after a fashion, however come the frost i'll be fooked! It also heavily condensates up!

Any help where to start will be appreciated :confused:

Right, today i re-assembled it using the old motor that worked fine on a battery test. Then fitted a new Thermistor (Resistor) Ebay £21.45p & tried it out.....
Hey presto it all works! Also the EC/Recirc buttons & lights now work too, so they are also controlled by the Thermistor curcuitry & wiring ;)

So all in all, under £22 for a relatively easy fix!

As an aside, whilst under the passenger footwell panel, i dropped the Air cleaner filter out, it was soaking wet & filthy. So new one of them ordered too.
