Question about 2001 Saturn L-Series
This is somewhat of a "common" issue on the early L series. Saturn has updated the parts for this concern. What happens here is the blower motor draws excessive current and burns the resistors inside the the blower motor resistor card. See the diagram below:

To access the blower motor you must open the hood, remove the wipers, the wiper cowl, the wiper transmission and the housing that retains the cabin filter, the blower comes up through the front cowl area, the picture above shows the blower unit under the dash as if you were standing under the hood looking down at it toward the rear of the car. Here is a better picture of how the blower motor comes out once you have the filter housing off:

The blower resistor card is a pain in the **** to access, you access it from under the dash on the passenger side, no good advice on this other than a good swivel/flex driver to get to the 2 screws.

Blower resister... as in heater fan ?... if that's what you mean ... look in the duct work near the fan ... you will see a connector going into the side of the duct work and two or three bolts.... remove them and that is the resistor block
