Re: 96 Toyota Rav4 heater Fan quit

Autozone's free online repair guide doesn't include the RAV4, so I use
the Camry one for example:

Resistor pack usually fail in one of the positions first. If you can
get to the connect of the blower motor, then you can measure if you are
getting any voltage at the motor. If you are and the motor isn't
turning, then you found the cause. You can also jumper power directly
to the motor and see if it turns. Be careful of the torque when it
starts up.

Follow all safety precautions like disconnecting the battery and
disable the airbag, etc.
A Haynes manual at the local Pep Boys or whatever parts store should
show you exactly.

Thank you John,
Here in the Chicago area it is mighty cold. When she gets home I'll
check it out.
