Current draw will depend on the speed chosen, with high speed drawing the most amps.

Question Current draw question

PawPaw,
Thanks for your input. However, do any of you know the actual current draw amount of our ac cabin air blower motor, let's say at the "high" setting
? Please reply and let me know if possible.
Thanks,
Infante

Without actually measuring with an ammeter you might need to contact a Ford Ranger engineer who was part of the HVAC team back in 98. I will say it is less than 40 amps because that is what size fuse protects the circuit.

If you would give some more information, especially in terms of the problem you are trying to solve, we could be more help full. Does the blower motor not run at a certain speed setting? If so, the problem is with the resistor block, which is an inexpensive part and is easily replaced.

I have looped metered these they draw right at 30 amps on high give or take a couple of amps based on the operating voltage of the of system.

Smile AC Blower Current draw question

Hello Folks,

Thanks for the input you have given me in the previous replies. I have been able to find out what I needed by using some of the ideas mentioned before. Basically I tested the blower in my truck with a 2 Amp fuse in place of the factory 10 Amp, and it didn't blow, even on high (AC off, so nothing else was drawing from the circuit in question), so I concluded that I draws less than two Amps, which is what I needed.

FIY, I was trying to confirm whether I could run 5 of these blowers with a 92W 12V Solar panel I already own... I am trying to cool down my attic in Miami, FL.

Best Regards, and Thanks to All.
Infante
