there is a fuse but check the blower connector for power, if you have power at blower it may be a bad blower resistor, this is located near the blower bolted to heater box, this is what sends the ground to blower to complete the circuit and control the speeds.
likely your blower motor. but take connector off at blower, key on, htr on high. should have power at connector. check with a test light. If power is present, its your blower. If no power, and fuse is good, it's a wiring issue or your heater blower switch on the dash.
your fuse box locations are in your owners manual. the lid or cover to th boxes usually tells you which fuse is for what. if the fuse is ok, then i would start with the blower motor resistor. this controls you blower speeds. it is located inside the car, under the dash, near the center or near the glovebox area. this link will show you what it looks like.
All auto fans run on 12-16volts. That voltage should be whatever the cars battery/alternator voltage is at the time. If not working and your blower is checked out as good you more then likely have a bad blower resistor which controls the speeds of the blower. You can verify by pulling the harness to blower and applying 12volts directly to the motor and if it comes on your most likely cause is the resistor
