Question about Cars & Trucks
You can hear the motor idle down when the heater is turned on, but I can't feel anything blowing out of my vents. I see that instead of there being a fuse in the "fuse compartment", it is hard wired. I've never seen this in my life. Is there any way of finding out if it is the fuse, resistor, or the blower motor itself..??
RESISTORS WILL OFTEN BECOME OVERHEATED BY MICE. CHIPMUNKS ETC...COVERING THE RESISTOR IN A NEST

the blower is on a different fuse than the heat deforst one if the resistor is faulty the fan would run on speed 5 only so still could be fuse or motor check for power to main motor under glove box ??

Under the passenger side of the dashboard is a carpeted cover you'll need to remove. Once that's out of the way you'll see the blower motor on the RH side and just to the left of it right next to the frontwall is the blower motor resistor held in by two screws.
Here's a picture of the old design (right) versus the new design (left).
