Question about 2001 Isuzu Rodeo
The motor goes bad because leaves and such make their way down and clog
it's air intake. Pick up a new one at your local auto parts store if you have to.
It's four screws on the motor housing, located under the glove box (2 screws) and the wiring is harnessed, so no sweat there.
While it's off, reach up into the cavity that feeds it air on the upper left.
You may want to wear a glove. The design on this generation Rodeo is horribly flawed. I pulled a squirrel-sized wad of rotten leaves and pine needles from mine after replacing the motor and resistor twice.
Like drinking a milkshake through a coffee stirrer, you know that's bad for a motor. I clean mine out every fall, before running the heat non-stop all winter.

I have the same problem with my 2001 Isuzu Rodeo LS. I took the climate control out of the dash and found that the fan switch had got hot and melted the contacts. I purchased another used unit and installed it. A year later it stopped working again. This time I took it apart and the entire module inside the dash had melted. I am going to splice in a new set of wires to the fan switch, pick up another used climate control unit, and trade off the thing. Its apparent its a defect.

This is a common issue, it should have been a recall but Isuzu bailed, it is bad wiring. The connector contacts eventually melt through the connector housing on the pigtail side. Just have to keep replacing and hope the parts don't skyrocket in price.
