Question about 2006 Pontiac Vibe
Was the fuse bad? Does it work on medium speed setting? If it does not work at all there is a good chance that the motor itself is bad. This is easy to test with a test light. If you clip the end of the test light to a good ground source and unplug the wire connector from the motor, you should be able to probe the 2 wires of the connector with the test light with the ignition in the "ON" position and the A/C heater control on as well, you should have power to one of the connectors. If so, your blower motor is bad, if not then you will need to look elsewhere in the circuit. Either the blower motor resistor or the control head switch, or the power source itself...but you said that you already changed the fuse. And if it is the resistor the motor will still usually work on medium. But if you have power to the switch and power is coming out of the switch but not making it to the blower motor then the only other thing it would be besides the resistor would be a bad wire or bad connection.

Check owners manual for location of heater blower motor front,check with a test light,if it's good locate blower motor under glove box and test the two wires for power when switch is turned on,if power is present motor needs changed.if no power check blower motor resister.

You'll need to replace the switch and the blower motor. If you just put on a blower motor it will probably work on five. Its more difficult pulling dash apart then it is replacing the switch, but that's what's going on.
If a fuse isn't burnt through it works as good as a new one, so keep the old for possible future use.

I assume you've fixed this already given that nearly a year has passer by, but if others experience this, it may help them. Under the dashboard on the passenger side there is a Fan Blower resistor attached to a red connector with 5-7 colored wires. Its held in by two simple screws. Disconnect the connector and inspect it for any burn marks(usually the last orange wire at the end). If this is discolored go to the nearest GM dealer and by about $70 worth of parts. The blower resistor, the red harness connector and the clips that go into the connector. Job takes under an hour and would be rated at novice-intermediate. Advice: set the passenger chair back as far as possible. Remove the harness clips carefully so as not to break them. For more workspace you can easily pull out the plastic facia on the right hand side, it easily slips out from under the foot rail, do not be intimidated there are no hidden screws. There is also a relay down there; a small black box held in by one screw, you might as well change this while you're down there. A dealer may charge as much as $400 for this simple fix!
