Question about 1996 Nissan Quest
You have a bad solder joint in your heater control head. If you can solder, you can fix it. I will fix it for $25 and send you a control head. Then you send yours back to me.
Here's our Villager/Quest web site.
You have to remove 4 plastic screws on console bottom. Then remove 2 screws at bottom of center trim panel. Then remove ash tray and 2 screws just above tray opening. Then 2 screws at top of center trim panel. Then pull off center trim panel. It has 2 spring clips in center.
Then remove 4 screws holding control head in.
Remove all electrical connectors.
remove thin plastic cover on bottom of unit. 2 plastic clips hold it on.
remove circuit board, and look on back side for crack around solder joint that is circled in red on picture. Or the joint next to it.
resolder the cracked joint. Don't heat the joint too much. Just enough to get solder to drop on to it.

you need to remove the lower balljoint and the center nut and it should come right out. use pb buster or wd-40 on the splines. they tend to rust up

There is no other way other than to remove the engine.I now its a lot of work but if you want to do the job properly then thats the way to do it.You can remove the gearbox and try.I think thats a waist of time good luck.

SInce you indicated that it was working intermittently then quit working altogether the most likely culprit is probably a bad blower relay . The Contacts in a relay will sometimes burn and intermittently still conduct for while until they get so burnt that they won't conduct at all and the relay will have to be replaced. If you could get a Chilton Service Manual for the Vehicle in question it would probably show the exact location of the relay.

Testimonial: "Thank you. The relay was my next stop. I have had the dash apart already and checked all the connections on the control panel."
