If you can, check if there is voltage at the blower motor connector with the ignition on and the engine not running. If you have voltage, the blower is bad. If no voltage, it may be a bad blower switch, the blower motor resistor assembly, or the wiring between them.
The resistor assembly is on the evaporator housing under the dash on the passenger side and near the blower motor. The glove box must be removed to check this and the blower. A thermal limiter resistor is built into the resistor assembly and will open, ie melt, with excessive heat.
Without more details on this, it appears either your blower motor or the blower motor resistor assembly is bad.

SOURCE: blower for heat.
If the blower is totaly not working it could be a bad motor or a loss of power (or ground) to the motor. There is a blower motor relay on the power distribution box on the right innner fender. There may be a fuse for the heater circuit, also. Power also goes through a blower motor resister that controls blower speeds. If any one of these are bad it will (can) cause the blower motor to not work. I would first check all your fuses. If you have the ability to check for power continuity (with a test light or multimeter) I would check to see if the motor is even getting power. It is also possible that your heater control switch is not sending power to the relay. Electrical can be hard to track sometimes. Good Luck.

Check the fuse box under the hood and look for the a/c heater blower fuse, check to see if it's gone bad and needs to be replaced. The other thing to is check if the blower fan works on high setting only, if it does, then the blower motor resistor has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Once you have gone through all the electrical fuse and relay, then good chance that the blower motor needs to be replaced. If you go to Auto Zone they will have the blower motor and resistor if you want to replace that too and they will have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done with common tools. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer more questions you may have.

The heater core (a mini radiator located under the dash) or its feeder hoses are clogged. They are not allowing water to circulate through the heater core. That is where the heat comes from.
