    I have a 2012 C 3, with 27K miles. This morning on the way to the store i turned on the heater and the fan turned on and after like 2 mins the blower stop working. All the lights are on, but nothing comes out of the vents under any circumstance. I tried taking of the eco mode, I tried turning the car on and off. still nothing.
    questions;
    If i bring it to the dealer will they fix it under warranty?
    could it be a bad fuse? where is the fuse box?
    what could it be, its freezing outside and I need heat for the kids in the car.
    Thank you Manny

    It could be a fuse. The owners manual will point you in the right direction to find the fuse box and the blower fuse.

    Press the off button. Some people have been having issues with the off button getting stuck. But in their cases the temp went blank like the A/C was off.

    You might be right on the verge of your 2/24 bumper to bumper warranty expiring.
    You might want to NOT delay having the dealer look at it.
    If the fuse blew, the fan motor might be bad too.

    Oh crap. My memory failed me again.
    Mine's a 13; wonder if they changed it ?
    Probably not.

    The website for the 14s says 3/36, so I'd say no.
