Could you send a link to the amazon unit you bought and I’ll gave a look. It’s still a good price so I might take a chance. That’s 17 months I’ve had my constantly running at a low speed. I just realised after reading this thread a checking it out that I could switch it off lol.

Glad it's all now working. If you don't count your time it wasn't too expensive in the end.

Yes, good job - and I'll be referring people to this thread the next time this comes up - as I said earlier about aftermarket copies, the Chinese junk is infiltrating everything.

Mine (older C5) is using a Chinese junk one that has outlasted OEM ones. Ten quid including postage and sent from China :)

Just your luck. I have 2 eBay ones at £25 each. Both don’t work. Hoping this one will work. If anyone wants the eBay ones they are welcome I don’t know if they’ll work in another car.

I think it's also a matter of 'they look the same part, so we'll say they are compatible...' So for earlier C5 they may suffice, but unlikely to cut the mustard on later vehicles with the more involved climate systems.

Well that's that problem sorted. Heater now works as normal, up and down the settings, full blast at defrost setting. The link for this product should be on a sticky, it would have saved me £50 and a lot of headaches. 18 month of the blower on low is now over. Thanks to all.
