    Mine is 2009 model. A couple yrs ago the fan quit, (except on high) dealership fixed it ( was still under warranty) now it has quit again (32,000 mileage, much less than that the first time). Have an appointment this week to get fixed AGAIN. This shouldn't keep happening, has to be a defect. There should be a recall on this !! I'm sure I will have to pay this time, I guess my warranty has run out by now. Hope it doesn't cost me a fortune !!!

    The AC fan in 2009 Fits is faulty. It draws too much current and blows out the resistor pack. You could replace just the resistor pack and take your chances that the fan will continue to work for as long as you need it to, but there is no guarantee as to how long the replacement resistor pack will last. To ensure proper functionality, you have to replace the AC fan with a part that draws the right amount of current.

    Before the warranty expired the blower fan started making noise. I never took it back to the dealer. There are times it will not turn on for a few minutes but usually will come on eventually. Sigh

    Have not had this fixed yet. I have a 2011 Fit. Apparently there was a service bulletin issued for 2009 model Fit. Seems like the same issue for 2011, the blower resistor goes bad so that the blower only works on high. Has anyone else had the same problem with a 2011?

    The A/C fan speed control switch stopped working, had my local Honda shop repair it. The Resister pack that controls the fan speed burned out. Simple fix except that on my particular year/model Honda had a service bulletin that stated there was a problem with the AC Fan that caused this resister pack to fail thus requiring the fan AND resister pack be replaced together. I had this done and have had no problems since then.
