While you have provided me with the answer to my question, It's not what I wanted to hear... oh, well I guess the wallet is going to be a little bit lighter now. Thanks for the info.

My fan just started doing the same thing, I can't shut it off and it's on high. I have a 2002 Pathfinder, I just got a quote for the Fan Amp, it's $261! It's a dealer only part... you know it costs them about $1 to make it in China. Aparently this is a common problem with the Pathfinders... Hope that helps.

Check the salvage yards... mine was purchased for about $25 and then I traded the Pathfinder in on an '07 Frontier CC LB, which is what I wanted to begin with... good luck.

Was wondering, if my fan runs but it is surging and/or makes a "whooshing" noise could this be the same problem? Any help would be appreciated.
#9 of 34 2001 Pathfinder blower works only on High

Doesn't matter where I want it to blow, but the heat/clim control only comes on when the blower's on the highest setting. Help! What's wrong, and how do I fix it?
#10 of 34 Pathfinder blower won't shut off

I have a 2001 Pathfinder and the fan doesn't stop blowing even when the ac is off. It does go to different speeds when the ac is on, but when I cut the ac off, it still is blowing, but not as fast. Any suggestions?
#11 of 34 fan control ampliflier
Aug 06, 2008 (4:16 pm)
I have had all the same problems as everyone has mentioned. I have a cheap fix. The problem comes from the semiconductor under the small circut board in the ampliflier. My problem is, it blew and only left two of the four numbers. It is a NEC part and easy to install. Does anyone out there have the part number? In the mean time I installed a chip that is close but not exact. I now have a only two speeds but every thing else works fine. By the way the temp part was $8.47 plus shipping. Please let me know about the number. Thanks PS you will need too use a soidering iron to remove the circut board. Can't hurt it because it doesnt work anyway

same issue....does anyone have the NEC part Number?? like mr bostwick, the fet in my unit also blew taking out the last 2 numbers of the nec part number. what i can see is "NEC K25..." and there are a bunch of these. here is a site that lists these components and about 6 NEC's. :
the "2S" in front of K25 simply means that it was made in japan....i think.
it's not a big deal to buy it or replace it once you know which specific component to buy. Help?

I got it from Mouser Electronics 800-346-6873
part # NTE2393 It is the part inside the fan amp it is black and has three prongs connected to a small circut board. Can you identify the numbers on yours (the black part with three prongs?
