Heater Blower

Post by Stu04 » Sun Jan 10, 2021 2:45 pm

Hi, I was wondering if any one knew how the heater blower for the cabin of a J11 Qashqai actually works. I have had my vehicle just over a month and when using the heater find that the fan cuts out even when I have it on full power and top temp. It runs for so long the seems to switch off and a gentle breeze emits from the vents. I asked at the garage I purchased it from and they say it is the way the vehicle is designed,
Thanks in advance
Stu

As far as I can tell its an electronic module mounted at the rear of the cabin Air Con/Heater centre unit...about midway and appears to be accessible from the passenger side. Couple of bolts or similar.

If you use the Auto setting the fan will adjust automatically to maintain the set temperature. Just a thought

I have tried the automatic and manual modes. The blower works for a while then switches off even thought the display is showing full. On the way home tonight I turned the A/C to min temp nothing happened no increase in the fan speed. If I turn the unit off and back on this seems to kick it back to life, but only for a short time. the other problem with it is I have to have the A/C on permantly or the car fogs up and I can't see. Surely there is something amiss but as I said the garage I bought it from says there is not a problem.

If you cannot control the heating there is a problem and the garage is wrong. Was that a Nissan dealer?
