Mechanics/SAUTO I need some advice

My daughter has a 2006 Mercury Milan (Ford Fusion) and since I bought it for her 6 months ago she's had trouble with the blower motor. Until yesterday when it wouldn't come on we just reached under the glove box smacked it with the palm of our hand and it would work fine but now that doesn't work.

I've read online that the resistors are notorious for going bad but a lot of people have problems with the motor as well so I decided to look at the motor itself first. The plug that plugs into the motor and the plug on the motor itself are both melted inside. I tried hot wiring the motor directly to the battery and the fan turned but it created a huge hot spark at the wire. Im guessing that's because I bypassed the resistor?

The damn plug was $30 and I'm waiting for the motor to arrive at O'reilly's which is another $70. When I replace these am I at risk of melting another motor plug because the resistor could be bad as well? Is there a way to test the resistor? The resistor is $170 so I'm hoping that isn't the culprit.

One more thing that gives me hope that it isnt the resistor is before going out completely the blower worked on all speeds.

It was probably just a little loose in the connection ski it would arc and melt the plug.

Pigtail and blower should fix it.

One good thing is now it will be under warranty for life

I hate electricity. Real answer is wait for SAUTO

But it shouldn’t be melting shit. Check the fuses and make sure the Amps on the fuse are correct. If not you probably have a wiring problem. Something is shorting. Maybe it’s in the harness

Great to hear, thanks guys. When I get it back together I'll let it run for awhile and check the wire/plug to see if its warm.

What's that got to do with your last post?

And the price will be different at every store, and of course there's a difference between shop pricing and walk in...I can guarantee you aren't getting a bigger break than I do from them. I wrote them a check for over 4000 yesterday and that was my lowest one in months. I pay the amount in full every Friday morning. They take pretty good care of me.

I won't buy engines from them or any parts store for that matter. They all suck, especially Marshall engines

$4k in parts in a week? Dammed if you could buy right you could be yachting in style. 15% of $20K x 12 is a lot of change. ($31K a year@15%) O'reilly should furnish you with a new truck every year

I used to write $20 checks every month to Oreilly but for 5 locations and non of that Friday bullshit, Monthly statements....even better when 10 days 2% terms were still a thing. $5k a year discount.

You don't have the choices down there that I did in KC and St Louis. With accounts at WD's you could bypass the part stores and save an addl' 15-20%. Plus the trips, vendor dinners, and other perks. Tennaco (Monroe) was my fav with yearly cruises.

All the little WD's have been swallowed up (Worldpak account was great back then but no longer since Advance.) but the rules have changed but there are a few sources to be had if you have connections.

I had bad luck with a Ford 5.0 performance engine from Jasper... Never liked them after losing money doing warranty work. It barely paid for the tech no less the hourly value of a bay.

3rd engine was a winner

I get 2 percent off every Friday not sure where you think that's a thing of the past. I pay every week in Friday because I WANT to. I also pay for every tire that gets delivered when they get delivered.

I actually spent almost 10k this week in parts. Brand new Ford engine and a new transmission for a trailblazer that were purchased elsewhere. And that's not including tires sold.

And I did all of that with 2 lifts and an alignment rack with one other technician, A lube/tire guy and one part timer that tries to keep the place clean ish and my tools put away.
I think I have a reason to be proud.

And like I said oreilly's takes pretty good care of me every year.

I get my engines from the same people that supply the dealers. Knock on wood I've never had a warranty claim on any of them. Hundreds

I've got a Marshall rebuild at my shop right now because it pulled rocker arm studs with a stock cam. They won't cover it so the guy pulled it from another shop and I'm going to install screw in studs.

It seemed like there were claims on every jasper and Marshall and power torque or whatever they want to call themselves now.
