Question air/heat won't turn off!?

I think Siberia is falling apart!

Yesterday I went to turn the heat on low and the knob seemed like it was kind of stuck, but I tried to turn it on anyway (not a bright move). Well, it came on, but it came on full blast, even when it shows that it's on the lowest setting. NOW, it won't turn off at all. Even when it shows it's off, it's still blasting out.

I'm looking for a really easy or cheap fix, I don't care if I can't use the heat/air until I can take her in to get fixed. I just want it to stop blowing. I can't afford repairs right now!

Check the fuse panel to see if there is a dedicated fuse for the blower (I can't remember...), and pull it.

I do not have a fix for you. But I have a temporary fix, if you open your fuse box on the left drivers side (door must be opened to locate, it is black and you push it in to open it) and look for the fuse that is for the fan in your car. Your manual should tell you which one it is or the back of the black piece you take out when removing your fuse box cover (picture of a fan). Now it will tell you there are more then one fan: trial and error is what you are going to have to do. I have done it before but I cannot remember which one it was (Maybe 25). Here's the best picture I found of it as I would go outside an take a picture but it is 15 degrees! Ok so you would only open the bottom part he opened up that whole side. (Your problem might just be a faulty fuse).


Make sure you use plyers with a rubber end to remove the fuses. Also make sure the car is off everytime to test one to see if it is the right one or not. So take one off then turn on the car and then turn off the car and test another. Put the ones you are not testing back of course. Of course you are responsible and make sure to get more then one opinion.
