The regulator is in the blower housing at the base of the windshield. Its probably about a two hour job by the book.

There is external access to the circuit. What you would be looking for is a 1-4v signal from the pushbutton control unit. I don't remember the color, email if you would like a diagram.

I have never seen a regulator fail in this way. Most likely you have a faulty circuit in the pushbutton control unit.

I believe there a NTC switch on the head that controls the aux fan. I'm not sure where that switch sits in the control circuit. I believe it has only 1 conductor. Check it with reference to ground with the engine cold. Should show open circuit.

Some of the answers have me confused. Are we talking about the blower that blows cold air in our face or the blower for auxiliary cooling (in front of the radiator)?

The fan for comfort is powered by a transistorized regulator. The basic circuit has three wires. Power, ground and control signal. The control signal is a 1-4v signal that comes from the pushbutton control unit. These three wires are all that makes the blower go. The control signal wire is easy to get to under the hood at (I think) a three wire connector on the firewall. (I will refresh my memory in the shop tomorrow). The actual regulator I think has 5 wires (including the output to the blower through the regulator).

Disconnecting the signal wire should shut-off the blower. I also have never seen a regulator fail in this manner(leaving the fan on all the time). I presume you have some voltage at the signal wire all the time; either that or you have been talking about the aux cooling fan and I'm all wet.

If you need a wiring diagram write me at work steve_ci@bellsouth.net
