HEATER BLOWER ONLY WORKS INTERMITTENTLY

2000 Renault Clio

2000 Renault Clio

When it's working the blower speed control works ok at all 4 speed options. When it does work, it works for around 5 minutes or so and then slows down over the course of a minute or so and then stops but more often than not, it doesn't work at all. Tapping the blower casing sometimes gets it to work.

I'm not sure whether to replace the resistor or whether the problem is with the blower itself (when it's working it's fine).

Any ideas would be welcome.

Direct battery voltage to the blower motor and see if it does the same thing its doing

Hi Andy

I was wondering did you ever find out what was wrong with your clio heater as im experiencing the exact same problem.

Thanks for any help in the matter

I would Replace the blower motor resistor first. If this does not cure the fault the blower motor must be breaking down when hot !
