Heater fan works intermittently - like loose connection

  1. Has anyone heard of this before, what is it - on a '95 405 GLX

    It is a loose connection.

    Look in the passenger footwell, under the dash. The fat red wire going to
    the fan, will be loose at the fan-end. Jiggle it about, and you should be
    able to get it working. Mine was fine once I'd duct-taped it inplace.

  3. Thanks Nom, that was exactly it. very easy job - I wish they were all
    like that!

    Instead of just putting the plug back I cracked some of the plastic
    shielding off around the end where it was 'burnt' and brittle then
    gently crimped the connecter for a tighter fit before putting it back.

    The way the plastic was scorched makes me wonder if it was a fire

    It probably is a fire hazard :)
