    Default AC Blower Turns Off Automatically [ Honda City 2000 ]

    Hi fellows,

    vehicle under consideration is a Honda City 2000, and problem runs like this when i turn on the AC on any speed of blower after like 10 minutes blower shuts off, and with it AC also dies and AC clutch dis engages, wait for like another 10 minutes and it will turn on automatically, like its been programmed to rest for some time, running and idle time of blower at start of season was long and now its been reduced to like 10 mins or even low. blower is installed with a relay, its a nissan one 4 pin blue color, today plugged in a toyota denso one for testing but same, AC system is not installed with pressure a switch. today also opened up the center console to have a look at blower speed selector switch but it didnt shown any signs of heat up sorta thing, grip was snug and shiny connectors apparently it seems good too.

    so guys have you faced such situation with hondas or have any clue to pin down the problem, feed back and suggestion are highly appreciated.

    Regards,
    Mahmood

    @xulfiqar
    got one bulb for the AC switch and light on the switch does not goes off when blower trips, checked the AC clutch and it remains engaged contrary to my previous writing, but question remains if this is related to AC electrical then why blower behaves same on heater or simply when it is turned on.
    If the ac clutch remains engaged i m thinking that ur blower motor has issues May be it just stops spinning. It doesnt matter if ur running the heater/ac/nothing. Ac clutch staying engaged kind of solves the mystey

    Your ac system thinks that the blower is running. If there had been a problem with the switch , the clutch wud have went off

    yeh wali baat dil ko lagti hai, ok switch tu saaf saaf bach gaya, now its blower and it stops and it runs and it stops and it runs....... so what can make it behave like this, if it would have the blower resistor, i've checked as you have seen its intact and all three resistors there showing different resistance on multimeter, what else remains to be checked, any idea !!!!!!!!!! i have even replaced the relay attached with the blower but no use

    aik sec, aisa tu nahi k motor k bearing heat up ho kar jam ho jate hon, but unko slow hona chahiye pehle, aik kaam aur kia ja sakta hai, i'll get a motor from my electrician and plug the power jack onto the new one by removing and extending from original blower, or perhaps i can remove motor from brother's mehroo. what do you say of this idea???

    if the ac button light is lit and the blower turns off, then most probably the blower carbon brushes are bad, try to tap it with a small hammer when it stops, if the blower starts up then the brushes are worn out for sure, also if your blower motor is squeaking then that also means its bad.

    This is a classic symptom of the blower motor dying.

    Default yet another strange update

    i was myself pretty hopeful yesterday that we have narrowed down the problem but today its some other story, so here is todays experiment

    • turned on the blower and wait till it turns off
    • blower turns off
    • tapped the motor with screw driver back and it didnt kick started the motor
    • repeated same with two shut offs and same result
    • then instead of swapping the blower motor with mehran's removed the power grip from blower motor and fed it to multimeter
    • and results was as following



    so motor is safe its the input which is at fault, as shown in pics it goes to zero and gradually increases, when voltage is at normal level motor kicks in.

    so what can cause this behavior, after this i also unplugged the blower resistor and started the blower at speed 4 and exact same behavior, any ideas guys.............

    Check the wiring, this sort of behaviour is caused by bad contacts. Trace back the wiring and see where you have the loss. The two blue wires to the blower are a short subharness, check before this harness and replace the subharness if you see proper behaviour before it.

    If you dont get your result, trace backwards till you find it.

    to test meter - plug it into the wall and test A/C - compare to another meter. That way you know its good.

    dammit, it better be just the loose grip contact somewhere and better be easy to trace back, next update on weekend i guess.

    meter itslef is good, its internal 9v battery is weak and it is indicated by a battery sign on LCD, we were discussing this one, else no problem with meter.

    That little short subharness that connects to the blower motor can be a PITA. Its actually set up to save your original wiring from melting - consider it a fuseable link in the circuit.

    yeah looking at the wiring schematic it should be connecting with output of blower resistors and should be close by, will have a brief look tomorrow removing the glove compartment if found something then good else will do it over the weekend aaram se

    @xulfiqar

    only if you have not written that PITA thing above this is what i got today
    AC Blower Turns Off Automatically  Honda City 2000  -1039799

    now thats what i call a PITA, and for better feel herez another teaser
    AC Blower Turns Off Automatically  Honda City 2000  -1039801

    now i was expecting that blue wiring harness will be a small one as in civics but here wires from both the blower resistor and this blue pair gets under the carpet behind the blower motor along with firewall in such a way that it is un accessable, go got to the other side and under and found same color wires and found some burnt ends in a grip, got multimeter out tested continuity and verified, the grip was stuck got taken out the grip from the circled female grip in the first pic and above was the scene, its plugged into a relay couldnt get a good look as i have to take down the fues box but certainlt a relay clicks on movement of grip. luckily i have this at home with meAC Blower Turns Off Automatically  Honda City 2000  -1039805


    AC Blower Turns Off Automatically  Honda City 2000  -1039806

    you can see the same jumper plugged into the grip in the first pic for testing purpose, now this is certainly a sunday job for me to do, i think i can use two exiting wire by taking them out the current burnt grip and rest two thick wire need to be jointed to the new wires.

    Told you its bad connections, anyway - solder the wires together, twist and tape will not transfer full amps.
