hey guys. my gf has an 88 t-bird 5.0
the other day she flipped her heat on and the fan didn't turn on. then after a few trys it started working again.
today it won't work at all. any ideas?
i got a feeling its something stupid.

where is the blower motor located? on the firewall somewhere? could it be something loose somewhere?

Blower motor is probably behind the glovebox area. That's where the ones I've messed with are. It could be the switch itself on the dash.

if it was the switch, would the whole thing stop working, or just one function (like max or min.)

if its the swtich the whole thing wouldnt work, pop out the heat switch pannel, get a multimeter and touch it to the leads see if you get anything should be about 12V i assume.

a test light would work but a multimeter would be a lot better at knowing if thats the actual problem. anyways just try the test light, I doubt its the switch. A multimeter is a super usefull tool, you can find them for like $40.
