The blowers in my focus only work on level 4 , ive been intouch with a local mechanic and he said he can sort it for £50 . He said i need a resistor unit . If so are these easy to fit ? as i would do it myself . Any ideas on what else it could be ?

its most likly the resistor pack which is located behind the glovebox and held in place by an 8mm bolt, but it could also be the dash switch. 9 out of 10 times its the resistor pack

give these guys a ring and find the price of the resistor pack

Hello mate, i had the exact same problem with my 96 fiesta, what had caused it was the multiplug behind the glovebox had burnt out, so i cut the plug off and attached spades to the end of the wiring and connected them manually and now it works like a dream and it took me bout 10 minutes and cost me 7.99 for a big spade wiring kit but really all yu need is 4 fittings which will cost bout 50p hope this helps

Is the resistor pack in the same place on a Ford Puma? I have already replaced the HCV and the speed switch and still no blower.

yes i think it is,if you puma was built before 10/1999 The problem may be caused by a poor electrical contact of the blower motor resistor multiplug. The high current passing through the resistor may be the cause of the melting multiplug. The solution is to fit a new blower motor resistor that has modified connectors that can withstand the high temperatures along with a new wiring loom to the resistor.
