SOURCE: how do you replace the
Hello, these are not too bad. One thing you can try first is to follow the wires from the blower motor to a connector on the Firewall. Tap this connector with the handle of a screwdriver and it may start working again. If it does not you can remove the connector and attach your new Blower Resistor switch to the connector. The Blower should work.
To switch out the part it is best to work on a cool motor. There are 2 screws on the part and about 90% is hidden inside the Firewall or ductwork. There will be a pesky water line coming from the top, back of the motor. Although you can undo the screws on the part without moving this hose, eventually when you get the part to a certain point; you can not clear the opening without smashing the Electronics.
Hence a cold engine will not lose as much antifreeze when this hose is removed because the "Air Lock" in the water system will minimize the mess and lost Antifreeze. You can also minimize the time the hose is off by removing the connector and screws from the old part, having the new part at fingers reach and tighten the new part after you slip the water hose back on.
I hope my solution is helpful to you.

Have you checked the fuse under the dash. You can run power directly from the battery as you did to test the blower just make sure you use a high amp rated switch and make sure you install an inline fuse rated no more than ten amps if you use say 14 guage wire. Let me know how it goes good luck.

I'm not sure if yours is identical to mine since yours is second gen and mine is third gen, but with mine (1998 MGM), the heat was stuck on all the time. Full heat would practically cook your feet and you couldn't shut it off.
It was a servo/servo arm that controls the hot/cold mix door. The part was $15. The labor was $700. They had to take the entire dash out of the car to get at the part. Required two more visits due to a missed electrical connection to a daylight sensor and a vacuum issue that made the car stall when put into reverse.
My car had 150K on it at the time. Has 165K on it now. Still runs great and looks great. It's now my wife's auto and I drive a 2006 MGM.
