I think I have seen posts regarding the switch itself; try jiggling it to see if you can influence it at all.

2004 monte carlo heater motor wont keep running when we hit a bump

Might be the Resistor pack located close to the blower. Could be under the dash or under the hood, but always close to the blower itself. Usually has a flat connector with 4 or 5 wires, and two small screws holding in the duct. It may be a crispy critter. It happens... The blower moves air across it to keep it cool. The blower motor may be bad as well, or possibly the fan speed switch. May very well be the fuse for the blower as well. The blower connector may be loose. Let me know what you find.

My blower works sometime and then stops and starts and stops

This is the way blower motors act when they go out sometimes,it will have to be replaced to solve this problem,when the blower quits again,bump the blower motor with the palm of your hand,if it starts back blowing,then this is the problem.

The heater fan in our 2005 Grand Cherokee will work on all speeds, and then shuts off completely, except on high. All you have to do is bump the dash next to glove compartment, and the fan starts blowing...

See if you can get to the blower motor,and bump it with your hand,if it starts,then the blower motor is bad,replace it,it does sound like this is the problem,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you.

Blower motor intermettantly quits working sometimes for hours than it will work fine for a week.

When it acts up,again,bump the blower motor with your hand,if it starts back,this will be the problem,also check the blower relay,and the fan switch connector,to see if it is burned,and not making contact,if this was helpful,please rate,and thank you.

I'm having trouble with the A/C blower motor working intermintantly. I've had the fan tested and it's fine. Could there be a vacum hose problem?

The vacuum hose operates the mode selector not the fan. If you lost vacuum you would have only defrost and no other settings but the fan would still work. When the fan doesn't work and you tap on the lower part of the dash board, will it begin to work again? Sometimes blower motors can be intermittent so simply hooking up power to it on a bench and seeing it spin doesn't completely rule it out as the culprit. I would check the connections at the motor, resistor pack and speed control knob. If all checks out it's probably a bad blower motor.

2003 Kia Spectra. My heater just stopped working,

Your manual ,in the glove box,will tell where the fuse panel is,and witch fuse,if the fuse is not blown,the blower motor has went out.Find the blower motor,and bump it with your hand,it may,or may not make it stat running again,but if it starts back up,then the blower motor is bad for sure,testing the motor with a test light will tell for sure if it is getting voltage to it,and if it is,then it is bad,if not,the blower relay,or the fan control switch is bad,test them with a test light also.
