    Default 406 partner heater blower resistor

    The 406 coupé D8 fan in the heater have a intermittent fault. Occasionally come on. The fuses and control panel are Ok.
    I guess for what I have read that it can be the resistor module which on the D9 fits into the ducting between the fan and the heater. I do not know were is located in the D8.
    The part number is heater blower resistor 6441.78.
    Where I can get it in Australia?
    An example is here:

    Thanks

    Just diid mine in my D8. Remove the fan which is under the glovebox and held in by 3 bolts. Carefully remove the plug and carefully remove the fan...mine got caught in wiring and I managed to snap off one of the bolt lugs....superglue fixed it.

    The controller sits in the top of the fan housing....you will have to loosen the fan from its housing to remove the module...the fan is held in by pliable rubber fingers that engage the housing.

    With mine the plug into the controller had arced badly so I had to pull the plug apart (it has a clip to open the plug housing) and cleaned the contacts.

    I got my new controller from UK off ebay...fast delivery and cheap....hate to think of the cost in australia.... Also, this same module goes into citroens so they are easy to get off ebay....as you have already found.

    Another very common prob here actually involves the feed from the ignition switch (at least on D8 sedans). I replaced the resistor pack on mine, assuming this was the problem, but no joy. Simply wiring in a direct feed with switch from the battery overcame the blowing problem. Make sure you switch it off when stationary, mind you, if you use this el cheapo approach, as the fan will flatten the battery in no time. A far more elegant solution is to wire a relay into the ignition to fan circuit, taking a direct, but ignition switch relay controlled, feed from the battery. You may need to use a different contact point on the ignition switch to get this to work if it has gone badly. Car should have always been set up this way IMHO. You can also replace the ignition switch itself, but this ain't cheap.

    But before replacing resistor packs, etc, see what a direct feed from battery to fan control does. If it now spins, the resistor pack is not your prob.

    Just by the way, if your prob really IS the resistor pack/control unit I still have the perfectly good replaced one for my old 406 97 ST sedan sitting in the boot (assuming the coupe & sedan modules are the same). DM me with an address and I'll post it to you for nix. No use to me.

    +1 with the arcing issue!

    Mine did it, burnt out the plug between the fan and loom. After fixing it - the motor shat itself anyways!

    Just what I need to know...I have a D8 406 coupe & my aircon and fan was on full blast...as soon as I touched the climate control to reduce fan speed the fan stopped working and I haven't been able to get it running again..
    I have a Citroen C5 hdi that has died..it is a 2002 model...can i use it's controller module?
    thanks
    MORE NEWS...I just got the fan working although at full blast by turning off the car...putting fan on full and turning on again...but if i touch the fan speed control she turns off

    No, they are not the same and do not readily interchange.

    Thanks Addo...
    I have also taken my C5 self dimming mirror off and fitted it to the Pug...I have spliced the wires together...any idea if this will work? or am I best to leave it disconnected?
    Cheers

    No ideas there. Depends who makes the modules!

    could I do any harm connecting?
