Question about 1998 Chevrolet K1500
The blower motor is under the dash on the passenger side. You'll need to remove the plastic hush cover to get to it. These trucks are prone to this.
The blower motor fails because the resistor/ relay / wiring harness assembly overheats and can melt. Some of these have even caught fire. You're going to want to replace the blower motor resistor/relay and wiring harness assembly assembly too.
Check out all the wiring that goes into the resistor for heat damage. This assembly sits right next to the blower motor right above where the passengers feet would be. The resistor/relay is about the size of a pack of cigarettes and you'll see it right away. Make sure to disconnect the battery before working on any of this so you don't cause any more trouble while splicing in the new harness. I just did this on my 2006 Chevy truck and my blower motor was ok. I just had to replace the resistor/relay and splice in a new wiring harness. It cost $180.00 just for that stuff.
