    Hey guys and gals. Is there a fuse specifically for the fans in our trucks? My cabin fan just up and stopped working. It was working, I turned off the truck and got back in 10 mins later and it wasn't working. I checked the plugs into the back of the panel, they seem fine. The A/C button, temp control knob, and I assume the blower selection knob are all working. The fan just won't turn on. I looked in the fuse box and don't see one specifically for the fan.
    Anyone else have this issue? Was it the switches in the knob?
    Thanks for any info.

    Wait, really? Cause I'll take the damned thing out and beat the crap outta it. I have no love for that panel. The temperature control squeaks whenever I increase the temp. It pisses me off.

    Just wiggle the connector that's located under the glove box.
    Do a search and you'll find lots of posts on this one.

    the blower motor resistor was replaced for this... perhaps yours is totally fried

    87138-04052 Resistor, Blower

    it involved cutting off the blower motor resistor connector and splicing in a new resistor

    This happened in my FJ60 once.
    Dropped the blower, bits of hay and leaves inside.
    Blew it out, cleaned and lubed with corrosion-x

    and, it ran for another decade til I sold the truck.
    The resistor can fail as well though.

    Be ready to do it more often. Mine started doing this in the winter. I finally got a chance to oil it up but now it just squeaks like crazy since some of the oil dried up. Time to do it again, but I think I'll just buy another off of Amazon.
