    Icon5 Heater/Air Con Blower - 206 GTi 180

    Hi Guys

    Hope you can help, the air blower in my 180 decided to stop blowing air!

    It started with the air shutting off for a second or two and then it would come back on again but now nothing.

    I have taken the fan motor out and tested the power connector (the red a black cabled connector?) to the fan voltage when on full speed and it was only showing something around the 1.5v mark, which I thought was odd, shouldn't it be 12v? I've been reading it could be the thermostat in the heating and cooling system near the blower motor, if that goes on the blink would it send the wrong voltages to the motor?

    Any thoughts on what might be broken is much appreciated

    If anyone comes across this same issue I found a 40A fuse in the engine bay fuse box more or less disintegrated.

    I think this fuse may need to be 30A and not 40A as 40A seems to have allowed the plastic to get so hot it melts and almost destroy the socket the fuse sits in, anyway replacing this fuse brought my air fan blower and A/C back to life.

    Guess its just another gremlin!
