Question about Ford Taurus
I have a 2008 Ford Taurus. With a manual switch. It works sometimes. We were told to kick the where the blower motor is under the glove box and it started working again. But first thing to start happening was the when I would switch to different settings it would make a clicking sound like it could switch over? Then it stopped working and we kicked the motor and its worked ever since. Would it be the motor of connection?
Both are bad--old motors draw tu many amps causing the switch to burn--wen u change them also inspect ac evap and heater core to save labor

Motor is also energized by a relay. check that and also check that the motor itself is good by running a hot lead right to it. I'm sure you already checked the fuse and know the switch is good?

Usually a bad resister operates in high speed only. it maybe a bad fan switch. the resister is next to the motor in the housing

The resistors are located in the firewall just above the blower motor. they have a heavier gadge wire going to it. As for the water if it is not antifreeze then you have a leak in your cowl area by the lower windshield. I ran in to this problem on several gm cars such as yours it can be deficult to find good luck
