If there's power but fan doesn't work, it suggests Fan is u/s and you need a new one!

I had a similar problem last year,You will need a new fan as Kevmond says.Either get one from partsgateway or a new one from ford.I chose the later as if there was a problem,the dealer is only 10mins away.
If I remember it cost about 150 but I can`t be sure.Also I had it fitted by an auto electrician who found outpart of the loom (cars,not fans) was broken & he traced the fault & fixed it.
I too only found this all out when I had the a/c repaired (hole in condenser) by an independant company..
Hope this is of use to you,
MM

P.S Welcome to the club.

Hi
Thanks for your replys.
I had the fan tested and it seemed that the fan was ok and all power on it was working.
, but the fan still wasnt working!! and the fault code keeps coming up linking it to the fan.

If there is power to the fan and the fan is tested ok it will work, you can have a problem if the power going to the fan was only tested with a voltmeter but there is a high resistance somewhere in the circuit and when the fan load is applied the voltage goes to near zero and the fan does not run. Try to measure voltage at the fan with it connected and the aircon on.

Best of luck Ed

If you've checked power have you also checked the earth

The power module for the fan could have seized up,then you would still have power going in but no actual movement from the fan.I think the best bet is to get a new fan from ford on the understanding that you can take it back if it still does not work,at least that way you will have a better idea of the problem.

Thinking about it and if I remember correctly wasn't the feed to the motor, pulses of full voltage that the Powertrain Control Module produced
