    Default Is it weather related?

    For some reason the heater in my truck stopped working and I'm wondering if it could be weather related. Here's why....

    The other night it was pouring rain and then within a few hours we had that huge wind/snow storm, as you all know. It was working when it was raining but then it stop working over night when we got that storm. So my question is.....is it possible that something was wet and then froze and that's why the heater isn't working now?

    You're pretty much right, if your problem is the same as mine was. Yesterday morning the fan in my car wouldn't work. I took it to the Chrysler dealer and the found that the fan had ice in it; probably got in there as water during the rain. Because the fan was frozen, the fuse blew. It cost 50 bucks to clear the ice and change the fuse.

    While we're at it, I have a vehicle/weather related question too...

    Sometimes when I try to unlock the doors on my truck, they unlock and instantly lock again. I think it mostly happens when it's cold out...or maybe my truck doesn't like me and doesn't want me inside it?

    Busy. Irritated. Leave me alone.

    So was the fan for yours under the hood by the heater part?

    I have no input there. Perhaps you're right.....your truck is possessed by some kind of evil spirit.

    Not sure....I wasn't there. The invoice says blower motor was frozen. I'm functionally illiterate when it comes to cars, so I don't know what else to tell you.

    I've since been told that using a blow dryer on the right spot....if you happen to find it, would thaw the blower. Check your fuse too.

    I think someone needs to just come out and say it. American cars are junk.

    I was thinking about using the blow dryer, but I just don't know where to point it under the hood. Also checked the fuses in the truck and that didn't seem to help any.
