    This is nothing new. I lost track of how many blower motors crapped out on my 1995 FORD E SERIES work van years ago. Some were better since I never had to replace one on my ’04 GRAND MARQUIS. Depends on suppliers I guess but it’s still no excuse.

    I had to replace the blower motor wiring harness in my 2017 Exp 2 years ago myself and it has worked fine until recently it has started not working again. I could bump the harness and it would restart now it won’t stay on. Will this be covered under the Sept ’22 recall?
