2011, vent fan sometimes doesn't work (NOT resistor pack!)
Twice in the last few days this has happened in my 2011 Focus:
I start the car, and there's nothing from the vents. No fan noise, no airflow. Fan speed selector does nothing (no fan at ANY speed, so not the usual resistor pack issue). Turning on the AC doesn't make any cold air come out, but you can feel from the engine that the AC did turn on.
If I turn the car off and restart it, everything works perfectly.
The first time it happened, I drove about a mile while fiddling with switches before I pulled into a parking lot and restarted the car. The second time, I didn't even put it into drive. Just restarted right there and it fixed it.
