2000 olds intrigue, i have no power to my air controller, and my blower motor. i've used a voltmeter to test for any electric current at the blower motor but i have nothing, i've checked the fuses and they're all good, im out of ideas, can anyone help???
Check the wiring to the starter. I have a 2000 Intrigue and the heating/AC unit would not even light up. We checked all the fuses, even tried pulling it out and checking the unit itself. Husband called dealer about replacing $1100, no way to get that, then the starter and fly wheel broke. Bought them and brother-in-law replaced them, when I got the car back the heater/AC unit work just like new, it was just loose connections.
R u sure u tested it correctly? There will be a 30 amp fuse usually associated with the blower motor however u need to look at the motor connections with a meter set to ac. These newer cars use a pwm type drive which is a pulsating dc voltage similiar to ac and should vary in amplitude as u turn ur control for speed. If u have that then ur motor is bad and has to be replaced.

if the blower is working when you jumper it at the motor you`ve eliminated the motor itself.if you have replaced the heater control with a new one or known good used one then the only thing is the blower motor resistor has gone bad.i`m surprised you did not check and replace this unit after jumping the blower motor.
Blower motors generally last about 120k miles(in Minnesota) They have brushes which eventually wear out. As they wear there is less tension on them against the comutator and so it requires more voltage to get them to run. Thats generally why "Hi" on the control is the only one that will make them run close to the end of thier life. This dose not rule out the control itself or the resistors. The resistors are located under the glove box behind the blower. Remove them and visually check their condition. Measure them with an ohm meter, they should all be less than 20 ohms. Remove the control and check it for overheating. Switches like to become resistive and overheat, melting the plastic frame and the plug. If all checks good replace the blower motor. You could check the motor by applying 12 volts to it and it would probably run but now that its removed its been bumped around and the brushes are making better contact. So don't be tricked. Like I said, if it has alot of miles on it (time) your better off with a new one anyway.
So you have power to the control unit and the blower motor. Did you check the blower motor resistor? That controls the blower on all speeds except for high speed. Did you check all the grounds? Don't rule out a faulty ground. Make sure the blower motor is properly grounded.
Follow the blower wires. I believe you should find a relay. I suggest testing it as well. Make sure it is good. Also make sure fuse is good and secure. Test your control switches and check all the vacuum lines and wiring
You mentioned fuses but did you make sure there is not a relay. If you have a voltmeter or test light, It is very simple to get to blower motor under passenger side panel should have to 7mm head screws take it of unplug motor turn it on put test light to b+ side see if it is getting power, If it is than the blower is most likely bad.
for the first problem, it sound as if the blower motor resistor has gone out. this is a very simple repair and the part does not cost very much. If you can locate the blower motor, the resistor should be on the left side of the blower motor.
for your second problem, it sounds as if the remotes need to be reprogramed.
