Question about Jeep Cars & Trucks
Check fuse, may be loose, or ground wire is loose, plug connector, something is loose if you can hit it and if comes back on. Could be PC board IC chip solder connection, another common problem with electronics these days in vehicles.
Good luck, FREE-PPV

To run any wire through the firewall, find a spot that is both reachable and unobstructed on both sides of the wall. I generally use a very short bit so after penetrating, it does not accidentally plunge into other wiring or components, or I use a collar over the bit (a small piece of tubing, leaving only 1/4" of bit exposed) I sometimes also "cheat" by poking a hole in the rubber boot where the steering column goes through.
Whenever passing a wire through sheet metal you must install a grommet. (if none are available, you can make one by using a piece of rubber tubing or the cut off end of an old tire valve.)
When tapping power from the battery, you will need to use a relay and switch attached to the "accessory on" side of the ignition switch, to prevent whatever you are installing from remaining on after the vehicle has been turned off. Use fuses in all new power sources as well to protect the vehicle and your new install from damage.
In creating a new circuit, you have the opportunity to use shielded wire, which will prevent stray electrical "noise" in your set" not a bad idea to do that.

Fuses are in the kick panel on the passenger side. If it blows again, you will need to find the malfunction (don't put in a higher rated fuse) Most times the blower motor will cause fuse failure as when the motor gets older it begins to draw excessive amperage...but don't change it till it is actually verified as being bad.
