FRONT BLOWER MOTOR DOES NOT WORK.

2005 Ford Freestar

Rear AC works great, the front blower does not turn on. I tested the blower with 12volts and it spins just fine. I also measure 9.7 volts at the blower motor no matter what postion the switch is set at.

Auto or Manual AC system?

Inspect and test the front blower motor resistor located behind right side of dash-start here

Test with a multimeter? What is a good and what makes it bad.

Dunno why it goes bad could be voltage overload/etc-try replacing it and see what happens

Is there anyway to test it? I though if the resistor was bad it would still work on high speed.

Try to swap it with a like one-if it works on high speed the other speed has to go thru the resistor controlling the lower speed

Changed resistor and it did not fix it.

Have the electronic manual temperature control module checked-See below
