Hello out there in the outback!!
Can any of you boffins tell me why the heater fan in our Fiat Ducato only works on setting 4? If I turn it to any other setting there is nothing!
I have changed the heater switch contol on the dashboard, but the same result.
Very frustrating!!!
If anyone has any ideas / comments I would love to hear them.
Cheers
Yertiz :evil:

Had the same problem on my Ducato based Kontiki last year and it was the resistor. Got one from the local Fiat dealer and had no problem since. Someone was able to post a picture of the offending article to guide me into what I should be looking for.

So it looks like the resistor then!!
I know I'm a bit thick but where is this located and is it easy to fit it?
Thanks

Someone pointed me in the right direction on the old site when I had the same trouble.
Mine was on the side of the fan housing under the dash and was easy to get out, just 2 screws I think. I didn't replace the whole assembly but got a replacement resistor from a TV repair shop for £2 and soldered it in myself :D

It's a metal or plastic rectangular in shape and roughly the size of a matchbox, you will find it either on top of, or just to the side of the heater motor mounted under the dash, there will be a few wires attached to it , and it may be possible to see a coiled spring within the rheostat itself.

M&D :)



This is a BMW one but gives the impression what to look for :wink:

Thanks to you all.
I am now just about to go and see if I can find the annoying little blighter, and ring its neck!!!
So much for a restful weekend, eh?

An interesting item, looks as though I have the same problem with the heater on my Peugeot 405, it failed during the Christmas period when it was very cold and a nightmare to drive without any screen demisting. fingers crossed
Thanks Ray.
