Haven.t fixed it yet, but there is a bad wire or loose connection in a group of wires located behind the fuse panel. In the group of wires one of them is apparently the problem. When I move the wires the blower motor and power windows work, but they eventually stop again. I haven't had time to find and fix the exact wire that's the problem yet, it's not an area that I can easily get to!

Sounds like a seized up (bad bearings) blower motor. It may not pull enough current to blow the fuse at the lower fan settings but does at the high one. Something could also be jamming the blower fan in its air duct.
Most blower motors can be accessed under the hood. Replace the fuse then put the blower switch on one of the lower settings (don't blow the fuse). Get yourself a good sized screwdriver and hit the back of the blower motor with the screwdriver handle a couple of times.
Sometimes (unless the blower motor has totally seized up) you can get it to spin and this will tell you for sure you need a new blower. Other than that, you can get a spare blower motor, remove the connection wires from the old motor and hook them up to the new one to test before you go to the trouble of replacing the blower.
Hope this helps you out... -Dan

Testimonial: "thanks i will try but have to find a long screw driver. i will let you know how i got on, i hope this works, thanks for your help."
could be 3 things. The fuse, the motor, or the resistor. Just because it was replaced doesn't mean it won't go bad. It went bad the 1st time. Fuse is more common. As is the resistor, oh and a 4th item...the relay.. Rare for that one to go out though.

Are you replacing it because it has no speeds and doesnt seem to work? checked your fuses and tried replacing the blower motor resistor? I would try a blower motor resistor because it is the most common issue with most cars first. before doing the fan, if you are unsure locate your blower plug in and apply power and ground and if it comes on it is not the blower motor.
