Re: Blower motor kaput!

First check the fuses, fuse 1 in the PDC and fuse 7 on the JB. If ok, i would check the connector if its not overheated, which is a common problem. The connector on the controller looks ok on the picture, but i would disconnect it to see if the pins are ok. You could test the blower motor by just putting 12V directly on it. When running fine and no obvious connector problems, its probably the controller.

Re: Blower motor kaput!

There is a writeup from i believe Ipahihi, where he just soldered the wires to the controller board. Will see if i can find it.
