01 1.0 Air con fan control - neiljules

My dads Y Reg micra has just had its air con recharged and now the 4 speed fan control only runs on the fastest speed, with or without the air-con on?

Could the garage that did the recharge have done something to upset the fan control??

They say its unrelated and his new problem is a job for the main dealer....

Any advice or technical knowledge on how to fix would be app.. cheers.

the fault is fan resistor which should be located in the air duckting between the fan motor and heater. i don't know where it will be on you car it should be an easy fix a bit of removeing say the glove box

A very common fault on Nissans.
You need a heater fan resistor.

The resistor is located behind the glovebox. No need to remove the glovebox. Just look up.
There is a connector with 4 or 5 wires on. Squeeze the latch on it to remove the plug.
There are 2 crosshead screws either side of the connector. Pull to remove. It looks like a credit card

A new resistor will cost £25-£35 from the Nissan dealer.

If you can solder, the resistor can be repaired by scratching either side of the 'blob' on the card to expose copper and re-soldering.
