Re: Eb Ghia Interior Fan Stays On. Help!!!!

The fan speed controller (silver cast metal box behind the glove box toward the centre at level of bottom of glove box.) sits in the air inlet on the firewall to cool the transistor that sit in the heatsink on the rear. When leaves and moisture get into this inlet (as always happens) the transistor case get corroded. This usually results in the fan always running on high but if left long enough might create a short. In any event I would start by pulling the fan speed controller and checking for corrosion (watch out for the "hidden" screw). The transistor is not expensive or hard to replace and is available from Worldwide Electronics.

Re: Eb Ghia Interior Fan Stays On. Help!!!!

Have fixed problem with a temp method. Have unplugged the fan speed controller for the moment. It sits right behind the glove box. I can plug it in easily if need be for a long trip, etc. and then unplug. Bit of a pain in the butt, but will be ok for the time being. I will fix properly at a later stage. This problem happened all of a sudden and I was really unsure what was going on.
