Blower isn't working on my 02 X-star I just got. The breaker isn't tripped. I click it on and nothing. The light doesn't come on the dash either like when I flip the switch to the bilge...which also isn't working! Ugh.

Do any of the rocker switchs work?? do the gauges work?

are all cables attached to the battery making good clean contact? also, is the tether attached?


Do your gauges work?

all the gauges work. yes the tether is attached. when I flip the switch the little red light does not come on and the blower does not work. When I flip the rest of the switches the red light's come on in the switch. The connections to the battery look fine, but I will remove them and clean it tonight. Can't imagine that's the problem if most everything else is working.
The bilge, which isn't working, switch light comes on when I flip it to manual or auto, but the bilge doesn't work. I ordered a new cartridge and am hoping it's just the cartridge.

I would pull the switch. Connect the wires manually as a test. If the blower comes on, the switch is your problem. If not, I would then check the blower. I had a similar issue with my '94 Prostar and I had a bad switch. Good luck.

any tips or tricks for getting the rocker switch out?

I had to take the whole switch panel off. After that, I don't recall, but I think it is pretty self-evident once the whole panel is off.

Sorry for the double post. My PC hung up and I was not very patient
