    Exclamation URGENT Heater Blowers Intermittent

    Just been shopping in Cribbs, got out to car, been sat there alone best part of 5hrs, turned ignition on then the blowers but nothing. All the dials were lit up and set accordingly, none were set halfway between options. Looked @ fuse and that was intact. Drove off got half way down m5 and noticed they had come on. Bargin now I could do up the windows...burr its was very cold.

    Got back to my house went inside, came back out after 5mins again started car but no blowers, dropped of drive way and bingo they start up.

    Ive now had this happen about 3 times since they didnt intially come on.

    Now the interesting thing is they dont cut out over bumps or when im just driving along...

    Could this be a connection issue...keeping in mind a smacked the heater controls initialy when they didnt start up. Could it be blower end??

    There was also a slight smell of burnt something when they fisrt started up each time.

    Its really bizzare as its not like its been gradually on its way out...

    Help please as A, ITS COLD OUTSIDE, and B, My windscreen keeps misting up!

    Cheers GUYS!

    unlucky, my air-con kept going like that, nothing to with the gas or anything. i replaced my heater control unit and that cured it, however these aren't cheap at 125 from vaux i'd recommend looking for a 2nd hand set. just so happens i have a set but all joking aside it could be other things but it's just a load of wires behind and if you haven't touched the back then nothing should of broke a wire etc.

    Does it work on full speed or not at all?

    If not at all it could be worn brushes on the motor that are barely touching but once it gets moving it will keep going until it stops
