Culprits Behind a Bad Chrysler Sebring Blower Motor
Driving without cool or warm air to fill your car can get really uncomfortable. And if this happens, you can blame your Chrysler Sebring blower motor for failing to function properly. But instead of just cursing at the bad component, you can also check the fuses and wires as they are usually the culprits behind this. To help you deal with a bad blower motor, here are some helpful tips:
If your blower motor isn't making any sound, you may want to check for any blown fuse as this can be the cause of your bad component. To verify this, you should replace the damaged fuses that you see on your motor. But don't just leave your motor running because you need to check on the new fuses. If your blower motor functions well and normally, then you can pat yourself at the back for a job well done. But if the new fuses blow immediately or they last a while but still blows out, you're dealing with an electrical short or damaged motor brushes that need replacement.
Loose wires can also be the reason for your blower motor to malfunction, so you also need to check for any sign of this. If your wires aren't properly connected, power won't be able to pass through the motor, which results to a malfunctioning blower motor. So if you find any loose wires on your blower motor, you can just simply secure them back to their proper connections and hope that this will make your component work fine again. Otherwise, you should just replace the motor if it doesn't start after you connected a wire to the ground and another to a power source.
Clogged or stuck
You may start to notice that you're A/C isn't blowing out air. If this happens on your Sebring, you can look for the blower motor on your car and lightly tap it using your clenched fist or a hammer because it can get sometimes stuck or clogged. If you feel air coming out of your vents after tapping it, then your blower motor was merely stuck. But if the tapping didn't work, you can start looking for a good blower replacement part.
