Heater blower not working

You call it the blower motor, I assume you mean the interior Heater/AC blower motor. When the motor acts as you have described it is usually a problem in the motor itself like a short or rectifier.

Radio, aircon and heater not working

The radio has it's own fuse (circuit) so it has no relation with the ventilation. The AC and heating uses one blower motor to regulate interior temperature. It uses a balast resistor located under the blower motor housing just below the glove compartment.

Heating and air conditioning

The blower motor works on high setting ONLY when the blower resistor is bad. The blower motor resistor is held in place with 2 screws and attached into the heater housing under the right side of the dashboard. You can identify the resistor by the big wires that are connected to the connector. If this heating/cooling system is the auto temp type, the part is a bit high on the price.

1998 Grand Cherokee blower not working

Check blower fuse, relay and power at blower motor harness terminal. Check for proper grounding at dashboard and body as well. Yo
good lucku can run a hot wire to the blower motor and touch it to the connector spade to check if blower itself is OK. There are other components in the system, but this is a good start! Don't forget...fuses blow because there is a problem elsewhere. If you replace one and it blows again, there is something else wrong!

97 Jeep Cherokee Heating problems

Verify that the hot water is being circulated thru the heater core by letting the car warm up to operating temp and carefully touching both heater hoses at the firewall where they enter the core.  If you are sure that the water is flowing, the the blend door inside the ventilation housing is either not working, stuck, or not getting vacuum.  This door directs the air to or away from the heater core depending on the temp control knob position.  The system is activated by vacuum pressure, check all vacuum hoses from the engine to the firewall and also underneath the dash on the passenger side behind the ash tray.

Head lights and a/c and heat

I had a similar problem with the blower not shutting off so the dealership replaced the resistor pack under the dashboard.

The blower stopped working several months later and the lights would turn off if you turned the blower to the on position. It was causing a drain on the power so things like the lights and rear defrost did not work. The blower had an internal short and was replaced.
