    Fuse will do that. Not sure which but someone'll help with that.

    Your resistor's playing up. Check shuttle tray drain hole is not blocked. Water got into fan and blew your resistor.

    You'll need a specify resistor for climate control type as it sits just under fan housing. Shape like brake pad lookalike. Black plastic with metal innard.

    Expensive on ebay so look for good deal. I had one, sold to a nice member, hope someone can offer you one.

    Try pulling FI23. It's the big 40A jobby in the passenger compartment fusebox.

    thanks guys, bang on the money humourbash ran the car through a wash on the way and when I opened the bonnet could hear the fan slurping water. Cleared the hole and half a gallon of water popped out. Could not find the fuse panel though I have a 2004 elite with climate I don't know if that makes a difference .

    thanks again guys on the return leg now can't leave the car too long at services as the fan is still running, have to make do with a splash and dash.

    The fuse panel cover is on the end of the dash at the passenger end - the bit that's up against the door when it's closed. It usually has an air bag sticker on it. The cover just pulls off. The fuse is numbered 23 and as mentioned above is the single big 40A one.

    Yeah expensive i know. I sold mine for £30. You'll need to drain water out, as it'll be puddling at bottom cone and will not help new resistor tho.

    Take a look at scrap yards. When you find a car with one, say its a bracket mount for rear armrest. They will or might fall for it and say fiver. If you're travelling and stopping at services, worth a pun look at nearest scrappy/car dismantlers and ring ahead see if got vectras.

    To drain fan housing, drill 4mm hole at side (not at bottom as its a mounting point) to drain water. Then let fan on. Then off to flush all excess out!
