On same day, the ABS light came on and the blower motor stopped.
2000 Geo Tracker, could this be two independent things or are they both controlled by a common fuse? And I am not sure when this next thing happened, but the metal connector on the passenger side of the rear window defogger was broken off.

Re: On same day, the ABS light came on and the blower...
No way - the ABS system, warnings and controls are independently controlled computer systems in your car, many having a dedicated computer... Busting the rear defogger is extremely unlikely to have any effect on your ABS system...
ABS light usually indicates ABS sensor failures. A code will be set on your cars computer and once found, it can be diagnosed from there...

1- the switch takes most of the wear and tear. change it out 2- it's the motor itself change it out 3- also don't just look at the fuse pull it out and put it back in a few times to scrap off possible corrosion build-up U R WELCOME
Hello there the heater blower is located under the hood on the firewall on the passenger side you will see a round motor looking item there this is your motor and blower now if you have checked the fuses for this than make sure that the wires that this motor is connected to are all in good condition if so than yes replace the blower motor ok best regards michael
Look for blower motor up under dash on passenger side & check for voltage getting to motor connector, if not, start backtracking perhaps to a resistor or connection back to switch. (temper,temper!) Sorry, couldn't resist.
Yes, the speed control resistor is a possible culprit. There are other possibilities though. The motor itself might be wearing out. Bearings could be going bad and binding, or the motor itself could be. Usually when a speed control resistor goes, the particular speed setting that portion controls goes out completely, not just slows down. Most automotive blower motors have an independent resistor coil for each speed that you can select. If one of them goes, you lose that speed and keep the others. If you replace the resistor and continue to have a problem, you might want to remove the motor assembly completely and have it bench tested.
