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.

Yup, thats it. That baby spent some time going through water.

Well they managed to do it without putting a single scratch or ding in the damn thing. I didn't even know until a couple weeks later I noticed a sticker in the door sill that said USAED Omaha US GOVERNMENT PROPERTY. I had to Google USAED to figure wtf it meant.

The Corps are always in mud and floods I work with them a lot. They are like land surveyors, if you cant drive to it its beating feat in and out several times hauling equipment. If you get stuck its good to make buddies with a operator and his trackhoe. A cooler of iced down beer after work and they will pull ya out of anything.

Well sonofabitch...it just dawned on me. Srvy mentioned floods...the Missouri river flooded the hell out of this area in 2011. Those one who sucks the peniss must have been out driving that thing through floodwaters when it was brand new.



Just my ****ing luck...

Weird the corps would buy a light duty pickup to abuse.

Do you have a die grinder? I’d buy a wire brush wheel and try to clean that up before I put it back together.

Buy some neverseez and put on the bolts.

I don't know that it was necessarily "abused" or that it even saw heavy use. It appeared to be very well taken care of, I was surprised to find out it was a fleet vehicle. Hell I had it for over a year before I even really noticed how bad the undercarriage was, but as you know, I had a lot of other stuff on my mind last year.


I did clean it up real well before I put it back together. At least I know what I'm in for when I do the other side.

Those fleet vehicles are well taken care of and are kept only 2 to 3 years. All routine maintenance must be strictly adhered our fleets have bumper to bumper service agreements that cover everything from oil changes to tire rotations. Major repairs or maintenance over a certain amount must be approved but have never had a denial.

If that's true that would mean there was another private owner before me. I didn't do a history check on it, might just do that out of curiosity.


I still think the damage had to be done by the corps when it was fairly new, it makes way too much sense.

I never paid weekly but they took away the 2% option on monthly billing years ago. 2% on weekly billing makes sense.

When you start buying long blocks and trannys the bucks add up but $4K a week in misc parts. Cough.

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.

what does cough mean? that im FOS? and whats the difference between 2% on a monthly or weekly? it all adds up the same. FTR i pay my napa account monthly and i get 2% on it too...


the only people that dont get t are the ones who are slow paying, maybe that was your issue...

my misc. parts bill was over 4k last week and i took off tuesday. the engine and transmission and dealer parts took it over 10k. thats the truth. i not a liar or delusional like you...
