Question about 1998 Kia Sportage
Unless your remote is being bumped while driving, the master lock switch (on driver's side, sometimes also on passenger side) is about the only thing that can cause this.
Blowers die but relays do too; check in your fuse box for relays and try swapping identical relays between the one that services the heater circuit and another which is functioning correctly.
If the blower is working on the highest speed setting but no others, then the dropping resistor that allows for different speeds has failed. I don't know where that is located in your car; sometimes under the dashboard, sometimes on the firewall under the hood.
You could use a manual for your vehicle if you plan on maintaining it yourself and there is one (on CD) offered on eBay at this moment (July 4, ~ noon EDT) for a very good price of ~$15 US:
