My 1994 Rodeo 4 speed demister fan only switches off and operates on only the highest setting. So I assume the switch is faulty ? Anyone had this problem and was it caused by a faulty switch.
Are there any after market options available ?
How did you go about replacing it, can it be done through the ash tray or what is the best way.
Any advice that you can offer to make the DIY fix less painful would be appreciated

i think there was a problem with water leaking in through a grommet or something like that from the top of the firewall or the base of the wipers, anyway it buggers the fan, on the high setting might be powerful enough to turn the now corroding bearings etc.

High speed is full 12 volts and the other settings are a lower voltage
common in tojos - the voltage reducer is stuffed

There is a thermistor in behind the glove box that acts as a resistor when you use the lower speeds, you find that the coil has burnt out. A bit difficult to remove. Barnray

Should be a pivot pin in the bottom inside the box with a flat head, use a flat knife blade to lever it out. Mines a 92 model but should be the same. B
