Mitsubishi 3000gt Blower Motor Resistor
How to Block Common Mitsubishi 3000GT Blower Motor Resistor Stoppers
Thanks to your Mitsubishi 3000GT blower motor resistor, you have control over the fan speeds of both your air conditioning and heating systems. But what's even better is that the resistor can be easily accessed because it is just about your car's blower motor. As such, diagnosis and troubleshooting of Mitsubishi 3000GT blower motor resistor woes is just as simple. And to make things simpler for you, what follows are easy-to-do suggestions you can carry out to identify and block the most common problems that may stop your Mitsubishi 3000GT blower motor resistor from fully-functioning:
Brittle circuit board
Your Mitsubishi 3000GT blower motor resistor is likely mounted on a circuit board, and this is something you should regularly check to avert major damages. Over time, the board can become warped and broken as a result of constant heating and cooling in your blower motor. This can lead to problems with the circuitry that can later on result in Mitsubishi 3000GT blower motor resistor failure. A resulting trouble from this damage is an eventual malfunction in your car's blower motor.
The energy that powers your 3000GT's air conditioning and heating systems has to pass through the fuse first before being distributed to the assigned components. Defect on the fuses has corresponding detrimental consequences on the operations of your Mitsubishi 3000GT blower motor resistor. If your air conditioning unit, for example, fails to work, check your fuses. These are usually located just under your car's hood. Although defect on the fuses are normally detected by mere visual inspection, there are also damages that escape the eyes. To check for these invisible signs, use an ohmmeter or a test light. The device should be set at 20 volts, direct current, and there should be voltage in the fuse. Otherwise, there might be an open circuit inside the fuse, which may hamper the optimum conduct of its operations.
Single-speed fan mode
While running your car's heating and cooling systems, you may also experience your fan running on a single speed mode. This may be a result of broken coils or of excessive resistance in your Mitsubishi 3000GT blower motor resistor. Every fan speed option has a corresponding coil in your resistor. A broken coil can therefore cause a specific speed option to be unavailable. Too much resistance on your Mitsubishi 3000GT blower motor resistor can have the same effect, preventing other speed levels from functioning.
