SOURCE: 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora HVAC blower runs continously even ign. off

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.

2003 trailblazer blower not working

Are you saying the blower motor would run intermittently and then just stopped working? My first thought is faulty blower motor, I've seen faulty blower motors that would run intermittently. Any motor that uses brushes, you can tap on the motor to see if it will start working, that is a sign of bad motor brushes, replace the blower motor. There could be other issues?
Did you check the blower fuse, not only check the fuse, check the fuse circuit for voltage, use a test light. Check for applicable hvac trouble codes. With hvac on, check for voltage and ground at blower motor wiring connector, if both are good and no blower action, suspect the blower motor.

My blow motor for inside the car sometimes comes on and off in my 2003 Chrysler sebring sedan when it wants to

Any motor that uses brushes, sometimes you can peck on it, it may start running, or you might hit a bump and the blower motor takes off. If so, that is a sign of bad brushes and the blower motor needs to be replaced.
Also when problem is ongoing, check the blower motor wiring connector, controls on, for voltage and ground, key on. If good voltage and ground with no blower action, suspect the blower motor.

Location of heater relay on 2003 ford focus.

There is no relay, according to my info. At the blower motor, green wire is voltage, fuse protected, goes hot with key on. Black wire is ground. The blower speed control switch is part of ground circuit. There are resistors for the lower speeds. Hi speed doesn't use a resistor. If you have good voltage and ground at blower motor and no blower action, suspect the blower motor. Any motor that uses brushes, sometimes you can tap on suspect motor, and it will run intermittently. Sign of bad brushes.
You may be able to use jumper wires to blower motor connector for voltage and ground, from the battery, just to see if blower motor will run? If it won't run, suspect blower motor. If you use jumpers, use an inline fuse, just in case.

Blower control

Check connector at the blower motor. The ground burns up in the connector. Also try this turn the blower motor on speed 3 then smack the bottom of the blower motor. If it starts blowing the brushes in the motor are worn out. Replace the blower motor.

Blower motor inop

Run 12 volts directly to blower motor to see if motor will run, if it does, than its blower motor resister thats bad, if it don't run than its blower motor motor thats bad. Most likely its the resister, common problem.

Blower stopped working.

Heater blower motor resister is bad, or blower motor its self is bad. Run 12 volts from an outside sourse to blower motor, if it runs its resister if not its blower motor.
