Question about 1996 Mazda Protege
Do not have power to blower motor or resistor, 40amp fuse in engine compartment is still good, cannot locate relay. help please.
Better late than never....
The blower relay is one of two identical relays next to the clutch pedal above the fuse panel. I just had to replace mine (1996 Protege DX). I switched the two relays and now the blower works fine. Not sure what the other relay was for... but the car doesn't seem to miss it yet! The relays have H270 panted on the side of the black plastic covers. You have to pull down hard to get the relay off the clip it is fastened to, then unplug the four prong connector. Good luck finding one. The books all call for a 6 prong relay. I am going to find one in a junk yard rather than calling Mazda. I hope this helps... I searched all over the internet and couldn't find any answers so I figured I better post mine here...

The relay is behind the right side of the dash. If you remove the glove box and look in to your right there is a nut holding the bolt and bracket of the relay. It's kind of tricky to get to...the relay is behind a metal support. Follow the wires from the fan and you'll find the relay.
