Hi everyone, I have a c200 Elegance Estate 1999 (T reg).About 6 months ago the hot air blower on my car would just come on at random times and switch off itself within ten minutes (it only blew out hot air even if dial was on cold). Now it comes on as soon as the car is started and wont turn of at all.This also prevents me from using the air conditioning, although it works as normal when the heater blower did used to stop.Any ideas before I start spending out!! Many Thanks

You need a new regulator fitted by the sound of it, very common, thats my first guess

They usually fail so that only the slow speed is working but it could go short circuit and be on all the time,,this should not affect the temp in the car

Blower Troubles (still!)

Hi again!
Just replaced the resistor/regulator and I still have the same problem!The blower blows out air when it is switched off, but when I turn it up the blower speed goes up too! However ,'sometimes' it does start to work normally again but very rarely???? Any Ideas??
Thanks
