Welcome. Just for responses, which engine do you have
Sorry, I have the 1.4 turbo.Welcome. Just for responses, which engine do you have
I know it works on all 3 speeds, the problem is that the lowest setting (which is supposed to come on when the car starts or when the AC is on) works sporadically (once or twice a month) and even at operating temperature, the fan and AC do not turn on. As I mentioned, a previous shop got it to work fine for about a month before it just stopped and the issue came back.You can buy the resistor packs now from Ebay for about $13. The problem is if you are having to pay a mechanic then its really not worth going cheap because they will want $700 for labour in any case and its always a bit of a crap shoot on the quality of aftermarket parts.
Now if you can do it yourself then heck yeah, $13.. or even $85 for a whole aftermarket fan is worth a few hours of DIY wrenching.
You need to confirm the fan/resistor pack itself is not working first which is pretty simple. A number of posts can be found recently on this forum on how to do this.
