I have a 2000 c280, The problem just started last night, When the air blower just won't shut off even when the control is off position, I waited a few minutes if it will shut off, after 5minutes I removed the blower fuse to shut it. I tried to put the fuse back on but the blower just started running again. I even went as far as removing the controller (i think it was called module) and disconnected all the wire harnesses behind it, But the blower still runs. Some say it was the blower regulator. Somebody out there pls help.

Hi rolandrrf, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation

Check and test the electronic blower control could be shorted out internally-let me know

The electronic blower control (N29) is located below the glove compartment and is bolted to the blower (A32m1).

Do you mean if I disconnect one of the wire on the control and if it stopped running that it could be shorted? And when I disconnected it, the blower stop running, So it should be safe to say that I need to replace the control unit/

Sounds like the blower control is shorted out if it stops when disconnected-the blower control circuit white and pink wire is shorted to the red and yelow wire on 15/30 circuit
