If you have a buzzing or a dieing fan sound with key ON then it is most likely the fan motor of the cabin temperature sensor. And also if auto mode couldnt hold the temperature inside constant especially during long trips it can be the motor again. You can turn the key ON with engine and all accessories OFF to better hear it. On 2001-02 it is just above the cigarette lighter. On 95-00 it should be around the glove box. I am not certain about the part compatibility among years.



So I remove the center console trim. To do it, you simply pull the wooden trim out by hand begining from the back. Two philips screws are holding the sensor. And a wiring harness that can be removed easily. I cleaned as much as I can with q-tips. It was covered with dust and dirt. But I cannot figure out how to totally dismantle it so I could put some grease.

Saint, once again you've added useful info

I will look into this; my Xedos tends to increase temperature during long trips. I believe my sensor is on the far right side of the dash, not aware of a fan in there though. Another example of the ambitions Mazda had during the design of this car

The part is listed for 95-01. So you should have the same sensor in a different location.

On the Xedos the sensor is located on the lower right side of the glove compartment. I pulled it out, and it has no fan actually. It is attached to a rubber hose, which probably sucks in air bypassing the sensor. Which was filthy after ten years service. Had grown a fur
