Hi all,
 
I am a new member with a p12 (2003) and a problem......
The Heater blower is not blowing, I have tested motor and seems OK.
I have located a control box which I believe controls the air con and fan speed etc, My question is should there be something else to look for , I would expect to find some sort of resistor pack? Does anybody know what I should be looking for or is the fault likely to lie with the control box I have already found (this box was located directly attached to the motor blower housing under the glove box). Any advise would be appreciated.....
 
Thank you all.....
 
Dave (Harpo)

Hi Harpo, did you solve this problem with your Primera?

Unfortunetely mine seems to have done the very same thing.  The fans suddenly cut off yesterday, and are not working at all now.  I've checked the fuses but they are fine.

Really don't know where to start, considering the P12 Primera's electrics are a bit of mine field!

Anybody any ideas? Costly?

Cheers

its round 20-30 quid. its up by the clutch pedal on the heater box, its a white connector and held in with 2 philips screws

After replacing part after part, i never got to the bottom of this so if you do find the problem it needs saving in the how to's!

PS, you can overide the pooter side of things by earthing the live connection on the heater blower.
put a switch in line, means you'll only have "full speed" but in this weather and steamy windows it's better than nowt.

Thanks chimeo, is there an easy way of testing it is this? I'm not particularly clever when it comes to car electrics.  Also do you know the part number to make sure I don't get the wrong component from Nissan.

Cheers all for your help.

I've just been in touch with a garage about sourcing a 'Fan Control amp', the technician stated that usually the fan works on full-speed even when these amp blows.

As mine isn't working at all, could this mean its the Blower motor (192...eek)?  I guess it might be worth changing this part first and seeing if it works? The current fan control amp doesn't have any mjaor burns or anything on it.  What a pain..

its not known as a fan control amp, ill get the name tomorrow, if your is the blower motor ill be very suprised,

Well the little white thing above the clutch pedal held in by two phillips screws is known as  the 'Fan control amplifier' according to the Primera service CD, anyway I've ordered the part so hopefully it will cure it!!

Will do Wink,  this cold and wet weather has really come at the wrong time for me.. Bit of mission trying to avoid the steamy windows scenario! Hopefully I'll have the replacement part soon. 

Will keep you all updated.

Thanks for your help. Indeed it was the 'Fan control Amp' or 'Heater Reg' as  they called it at the salvage place.  I waited over a week for the part to come in at the local Nissan garage and decided to give up and risk getting a used part. It's soo nice to have warm/steamy-window free car back!

how much did you pay for this part? as my heater controls only work on No.3!  Shocked
 
sounds like a similar problem to you?

Posted By: maniclamb
Date Posted: 23 Jan 2008 at 3:04pm
My fan wasn't working at any of the levels.. However people says its usually the cause when your fans only work at the top speed. I'm not sure if its a similar system for a P10? If so, then yes it could be the solution to your problem.

The part was listed at 27 + VAT from the Nissan garage, I got it little bit cheaper from the local salvage yard.  I was getting bored of waiting for it to come in at the garage!

The heater fan stopped working on my 2002 Primera and on advice I changed the Module Assembly Power (resistor pack). It is located next to the clutch at the back of the heater outlet and secured with two philips screws. It took 5 minutes to change and cost £36 inclusive of VAT at my local Nissan dealer. This sorted the problem.

The part number is 27761-AV600

it would seem on P10, P11 & 144 models the fan will still work on highest speed whereas on a P12 it stops working altogether

I wanted to post my experience which should help out P12 owners.
  • Blower unit stopped working.
  • P12 has 5 settings - blower didn't work on any (as per mentioned in post above).
  • Got a mechanic to check the blower, was working ok.
  • Mechanic told me I probably needed a resistor board.
  • Came on here to check it out - got a bit confused so rang nissan to ask their advice.
  • Told me most likely a resistor pack so I ordered one.
  • Arrived today - the unit is actually called a Module Assy-POW. £46.17 including vat.
  • It is the part with the white connector behind the clutch pedal mentioned earlier in thread.
  • Replaced it and the blower is now working ok.
  • No sign of damage etc. on old unit.
I have uploaded some pictures which can be found here which should help you out:

Some dealers suggest changing the pollen filter at the same time. Maybe a blocked filter causes extra load on the motor and blows the fan control module?


Posted By: Orinoco
Date Posted: 01 Sep 2010 at 3:31pm
I took my Primera into the main dealer near me to get it fixed today and they quoted me £185 for the module, air filter and fitting. I now wish I had followed the advice above and fitted it myself.

what version of primera has he got, depending on that could be one of two things, on the earlier primeras its usually the heater resistor card, about £35 from nissan. for a P12...it could be what has been said earlier in this thread

My P12 had this problem too, first time in 2008 and it cost me about 60€. The fan was working properly but no hot or cold air was produced. Now the fan isn't working at all. Going to rewiew the whole post and see if I can find an answer that matches the problem in my car. Not nice to drive with steamy windows and cold

Hi
 
Went & checked the Pollen filter cleaned it & replaced no joy, found the module under the clutch pedal & unscrewed it and opened it and found where the resister was.
No guage to measure it however shorted it by soldering 10amp house fuse wire across the resister as the car fuse was 15amps, worked fine & blowers now going ok, then bought the resister from Maplin for 67pence soldered it in and thats it great, estimated cost of garage repair could have been between £60 & £100.
May be an unorthodox test but its the result that counts.
Thanks to all the guys out there who have helped.
 
thanks John

Hi
 
In my P12 02 SE Diesel, the problem is that the fan works, i can also adjust the fan speeds but there is very little air being blown out and therefore causing condensation.
 
Will replacing the above discussed part resolve my condensation?
 
Thanks.

Your problem sounds more like a blocked pollen filter.

Hi there. Sorry to drag up an old thread, but found this online when searching for help when my blowers packed up this week.  I have a 1994 Nissan Primera P12.
 
I took the advice in this thread and picked up the heating control module from my local Nissan dealership.  I installed the new part, and it worked for about a day before packing up again.  What I don't know is whether this is a faulty part, or if there's some other problem causing the part to fail.
 
The dealership say they need me to book the car in to investigate before they will exchange the part.  While this is understandable, I'm not keen to leave my car with them unless I have no other option.
 
From your experience, is there anything else that could be wrong here.
 
Thank you so much in anticipation of any help.  This is a great sight.  I'm really glad I found it.
 
Best wishes,
 
Russell

Welcome to NPOC Russell.

Did you change the pollen filter at the same time? Some Nissan dealers recommend that this is done at the same time. Other than that, it might be worth checking the fan motor is running freely.
Can you do the DIY fix to save paying another £40?


Posted By: RussellH
Date Posted: 17 Feb 2011 at 1:58pm
Hi imckay, and thank you for the reply.
 
No, I didn't change the pollen filter.  Do you think that could have caused it to fail again so quickly?  I haven't checked the fan motor either, so I'll have a look through here to see how to do that!  As for the DIY fix, I didn't fancy fiddling around with that, even though it does look fairly simple.
 
Best wishes,
 
Russell

My local garage (not the Nissan dealership) have agreed to check the new heater module to see if it's working or not. They say it'll only take them a few seconds, which is handy.
 
I've had a look round the site and can't find anything about the fan motor.  Is it easy to locate and check?
 
Thanks again for any help.
 
Best wishes,
 
Russell

As said above the pollen filter or a problem with blow the resister card, that is what it is there for.
Changing the filter is easy. As for the blower, i recommend you download our free electronic service manual form th how to section and have a look.
I think your dealer is being helpful it might be worth them taking a look


Posted By: RussellH
Date Posted: 18 Feb 2011 at 7:32pm

Thanks for that.  I got my trusted local garage (not the Nissan dealership) to take a look, and they're pretty sure it's the fan motor that's gone.  They eliminated just about everything else, and said there wasn't much else it could be.  They said it was one of the hardest parts to get to, and recommended I get a Nissan dealership to do the work, as they may know how to get at it more quickly and easily than they could, which would then cost me less in labour time.  They didn't even charge me for the hour they spend looking at it for me!

Good honest service, I have no doubt Nissan will be pleased to take your eyes out though, their rates will more than compensate for any extra time your garage will spend on it


Posted By: RussellH
Date Posted: 19 Feb 2011 at 3:52pm
Indeed they will, though I've chosen not to return to my local Nissan dealership for reasons of past experience.  I'm instead going to one a little further away, but with a better reputation!  I've no doubt I'll still pay dearly though.  It doesn't sound a like a cheap job.

This afternoon, I collected my car from the Nissan dealership.  They were very helpful and courteous, however there is still a problem.  They have got the blowers working, kind of.

I wondered if I listed the parts and described the latest symptoms, whether anyone here can shed any light on what could be wrong.  Is there a fault with one of the replacement parts?  Is one of these parts the wrong one for my car?  Or has it developed a whole new fault in the last day?
 
The replacement parts are:
 
2771-AV600 Heater Control Module Assy-Pow
27760-AV613 Sensor Assy-Amb
 
The symptoms (that I've notied so far) are:
 
Only half the fan speeds work, up to 2 and a half bars on the screen.
The de-mister doesn't increase the fan speed, which I now need to do manually.
Certain other automatic functions need manual adjustment when I make selections.
The temperature control used to range from 17 degrees up to 31 degrees, with additional options for hi and lo setting at each end of the range.  It now goes from 18 to 32, with no hi or lo.
 
The garage say they've never come across this before, and aren't sure why this is happening.  To be fair to them, they're doing everything they can to sort it out.  They're going to check it's the right part, and when they have another part in stock, I'll take the car back and they'll swap it over and see if that fixes it.
 
I wondered though, if anyone here knows what's going on.
 
Thank you so much in anticipation.
 
Russell

have you got programme disc for sat nav- just a long shot but try using set up disc cos it sounds like your heater has the setting for a pre-facelift p12

my car doesnt do max fan automatically on demist and my temp range is 18-32
later cars seem to do the max thing and have the temp range lo-hi

Sadly, re-installing the software disc didn't rectify the problem.
 
The garage left me the old part they replaced, so I took it to another Nissan dealership, and asked a chap in the parts department what part number this was.  Upon checking, it's not the same as the new part that's now in my car.  Thinking this was the problem solved, I went back to the garage that did the work, and asked them about the part number discrepency.  They agreed to contact the other garage to discuss the matter.
 
They called back, saying that the part they have put in my car supersedes the original part, and that a bulletin from Nissan tells all dealerships to use the newer version of the part.  What they couldn't understand is why it's still possible to order the older part number if it was not to be used.  I asked if we could try ordering the older part number, just to see if it fixed the problem.  It seems that due to the Nissan bulletin, the older version would come with no guarantee so if it went wrong again, I wouldn't be covered as I would with any other new part.
 
With regard to the unsual symptoms my car is suffereing, it's occured to me that they're all climate control features.  I can manually adjust the levels of heat and the level of the blowers (although only half of the settings), but that I don't have climate control any more.
 
Both Nissan garages have been very helpful, and continue to investigate what's going on.
 
The saga continues...

Hello!

I had the same problem with my '53 plate Primera SE and was about to book it in to a garage when I decided to research the problem online first. I'm glad I did...

Bought the part from my local Nissan dealer (£37.50 inc VAT) then I just followed the advice from the above link and it worked a treat (a bit awkward to unscrew etc because it's right behind the clutch pedal but other than that a really easy fix and I know NOTHING about fixing cars!!!) - many thanks for saving me a lot of money!!SmileClapThumbs Up

hello my dad has a Primera 2005 with problems with the blower it seems to be blowing constantly on the highest speed so my dad has figured out to make the fan abit quieter he has turned the fan onto the feet and head setting but when he goes to turn the fan completely off it turns the head and foot function off and turns on the windscreen demister on could this mean that the fan control unit is at fault?

This fault is now getting annoying Angry

Posted By: timeshock!
Date Posted: 18 Mar 2011 at 11:07pm
The unit when it goes normallty puts the blower into high mode if that is what you have then it is highly likely. The question is why?
This is normally a protection issue, has the pollen filter been changed recently?


Posted By: casementp12
Date Posted: 18 Mar 2011 at 11:10pm
nope it hasn't been changed recently is it required to change it when i change the control module and just for the question where is the pollen filter located on them 


Posted By: timeshock!
Date Posted: 18 Mar 2011 at 11:12pm
the pollen filter can be cleaned once but replace every two years, very simple job, it is located in and above the glove above, there are instructions and photos in our how to section


Posted By: casementp12
Date Posted: 18 Mar 2011 at 11:14pm
i dont think it has been changed since he got the car longer than two years ago 


Posted By: timeshock!

I would do that then replace the unit, just check that you can hear no strange noises from the air system that could cause the unit to fail


Posted By: casementp12

thanks mate :) would it make a difference if i got both parts in one day and fitted the polen filter before the air control unit

I have seen them quoted on here at £32. The link below takes you to a post by someone who pad £40 an blew it straight away,although he did not come back after suggesting changing the pollen filter it may have worked, have a read

And yes buy both, fit the pollen filter nad then the speed control unit.
 
Why not take the pollen filter out and inspect it?

We had this problem last week

From Nissan the part was around £39
and Andrew Page parts place charged £11 for filter all good as new now

But I did notice in the service history they had this done 2 years ago and cost the £97 at a garage :S only cost us £50 ish to do it our selves

Thanks to everyone offering information on this thread - you've saved me well over £100.

Nissan dealer wanted £75 just to 'diagnose' the fault (despite their parts expert saying she was sure it was the BCM), then £40 for the part and another £42 to fit - total £157.  And of course they wanted the car all day to fit me into their 'busy schedule'.

So I took a punt and bought the part.  Five minutes to fit (would have been quicker if I was a contortionist!), ignition on - we have blower!  Total cost £40.

Excellent result - thanks again.

Hi and welcome to the forumHandshake
have you read this thread at all?
you need to change the fan control unit
 
If you changed the audio unit did you have it recoded to the car ny Nissan or Clarion? I would have thought you would have the 'Secure' message on the screen

hi guys, I'm new to the forum and maybe late to the party but hope not. I have a 52 plate p12 where the blowers stopped working, I can adjust the speeds on my control unit but no output from the fan. I tried to do some basic fault finding before I found this forum. I found the 2 blower fuses to be fine and still making circuit but have to supply voltage to the blower itself. do you think that it could be the module by the clutch pedal? as mentioned above

I think it will be pretty certain the fan control unit would have failed so give it a go. Have you checked the state of the pollen filter, lack of maintenance has been highlighted as stressing the unit.

Thanks for the reply. I did do alittle more investigating last night with some more reliable test equipment. It appears that I do have a supply to the fan, so is it likely to be a fan problem it is free and not siezed. I tried to take it out removed lots of screws but it still wouldn't come. Any ideas on how to get it out or what tests I could do on it to test it out. A friend of mine suggest connecting 12v straight to it to see if it runs to rule out any of the control circuits. Good idea yes or no?

I have not really seen any problems with the blower on here, would not like to comment on putting an un-fused voltage/current across the blower

I have a 52 plate P12 SE. Same problem as described here except I think the blower might have failed intermittently on occasions before failing completely. Local garage thought it might be the fan but then phoned me to say it was the heater blower resistor fan control ie the part discussed in this thread up behind the clutch pedal, they said it would be cheaper for me to find one on ebay and they would fit it for £40. So i ordered one from ebay and a new air filter and fitted both myself as described by the helpful folk on this forum as it was easy enough and didnt want to waste £40.

Sadly the blower is still dead. Its unlikely the new resistor control is also faulty so this makes me wonder if the garage checked things like fuses, relays and the fan....they said the fan would be the first thing they would check. They seemed certain it was the resistor fan control.

Has anyone any idea what else could be wrong? It looks like I wasted my money on the new resistor control and the old one is probably still fine. Maybe I should phone an auto electrician as I dont fancy spending any more time lieing face down in the footwell fiddling with screws.
