The blower motor control module is under the dash on the inside of the passenger side. I'm not sure what you mean by the AC Blower.... the blower contols levels and on and off. The air won't work at all if this goes.. I had it replaced on mine and had an on/off switch put in while the part came in and it cost me 217 bucks. Hope this helps.
