2003 trailblazer blower not working

Are you saying the blower motor would run intermittently and then just stopped working? My first thought is faulty blower motor, I've seen faulty blower motors that would run intermittently. Any motor that uses brushes, you can tap on the motor to see if it will start working, that is a sign of bad motor brushes, replace the blower motor. There could be other issues?
Did you check the blower fuse, not only check the fuse, check the fuse circuit for voltage, use a test light. Check for applicable hvac trouble codes. With hvac on, check for voltage and ground at blower motor wiring connector, if both are good and no blower action, suspect the blower motor.

How do i know if it is the resitor or the blower motor that is bad in a dodge 2500 cumings

you can disconnect the blower motor and run jumper wires, 1 ground and 1 power directly to the motor. if it runs the motor is good. note with the blower motor turned on tap the motor several times as the brushes may be worn and tapping it may start it. if this works replace the motor.

Blower motor relay

Usually a part called a "blower motor resistor" is the problem. Just follow your underhood wiring from the blower motor across the Firewall and you will find it leads to a connector. This part has 2 attaching bolts and the part itself is 90% hidden. What you can try is to tap the connection with a broom handle or snow brush to reactivate it.

There is probably as good a chance the old part will work just as good as a new part once the warranty expires. The "blower motor resistor" has been a problematic part across the Ford product line for many years. They will reach a point where tapping may not fix this, but the unit can work for years after tapping.

There may be a heater hose in the way of replacing the part. Ask for a technique to make it easier to do.

Climat controlThe fan is not working

You will need to do some checks .. First remove glove box. Then you can gain access to the blower motor. You will need a voltmeter or test lamp. Disconnect the plug to the blower motor. With the blower control turned to on check for voltage 12 volts, on one wire. The other should be less than a volt which is your ground. If so the motor is bad. If not then it will require more time and testing. If you want to try the "tap" method try tapping the blower motor with the wires still hooked up if it starts then blower motor is bad

No fan for the heater

First check the fuse for the blower motor in the fuse panel if it is blown replace it and see if blower works.If still not working you will need to buy a test light from your local auto parts store and check for voltage at the blower motor red wire if the test light shows voltage you might have a bad blower motor. There's a trick to test the motor called the tap test start the car and turn the heater fan on high using a mid size screw driver tap on the blower motor and see if it comes on if it does you need a new motor.

Heater fan won't run. I changed the fuse, but still no luck. What else could be the problem?

If it doesn't work at any speed try turning the car on, set the blower speed switch to high and tap the bottom of the blower motor with the end of a screwdriver. The blower motor is under the passenger side of the dash. If it works after tapping than the blower motor is bad. If it still doesn't work you'll need to start checking for power and ground at the blower motor.
