Hi Yes a couple of things, does the fan blower work on any setting? If it works on any of 1, 2, 3, or 4 then the common fault is the resistor unit which is located behind the glove pocket to the right of the blower unit and slightly lower, best seen with a torch its a single screw and new ones cost about £15 fron Ford. Other less common faults are the actual rotary switch on the dash board which have been known to go wrong.

Hope this helps

Neil

im sure the older focus' had a problem with the connections to the motor, might be worth checking these.

Ok It still might just be the resisitor thats at fault for about £15.00 its worth a try, my local Ford dealer keeps these babies in stock so sell so many!!!

just locate it remove the wiring plug connect to the new one and try, if it works then remove the old one and replace it its only one screw!!! although access is tight it very straightforward.
