Electronic Ignition Fault - Blower motor not working

Post by dragunas » Mon Oct 16, 2017 8:18 pm

Hello. my car recently produced this kind of error, and I don't know why. When this fault came up, the blower motor stopped working. All buttons and controls on climate control works, rear heated window/side mirrors works, AC also makes sound when button is pressed, all adjusting motors works. But no wind from heater fan. I have read, that the ignition barrel might be at fault(maybe that's why it says electronic ignition?). I'm checking for blown fuses tomorrow.

Is the blower motor also not running when the engine is running?

The blower motor can only run if the engine is running, to prevent the battery from depleting quickly.

Normal culprit is the resistor pack - its hidden behind the centre console - accessed from under the passenger footwell carpet. Look for the green plugs and wiggle those wires.....

Nope, not running with engine running. I pulled antenna wire so hard, that maybe i ripped a connection somewhere underneath..? Also, I have p1519 (coolant blower motor), are these motors supplied with same fuse?

Also, MFD displays "Electronic Ignition Fault". Could that be fault code for bad ignition barrel?

Fixed the problem. Ignition switch was faulty.
