O MY GOSH, 1990 560 SEL: Blower motor, Heater motor, I checked fuse #5, and the fuse in the black casing (Strip fuse) next to fuse box, ALL FUSES ARE GREAT, Heater motor wont work. I checked the Heater blower motor behind the glove box, FOUND OUT THE GROUND (Blue) Wire is bad! I connect a wire from ground wire to metal somewhere else on the car, and The blower works! BUT! IT won't shut off, it will not turn off once I press the switch on the center console. It only works on high speed now! And the "OFF" switch will not work! Helpppp!
