Question about 2002 Pontiac Bonneville
I had the same problem on my 2002 Bonneville and I was able to tap on it and make it work for nearly 2 years, but I finally had to replace it. It cost me $350 dollars for the new blower motor and labor.

Probably the switch

I also bumped mine for a while before I removed it and blew out all the dust (grafhite) from the brushes wearing out. That lasted a few months so I did it again . Then I ordered one online and installed it . It lasted about one year. I removed it to clean it and found the brushes very worn to the point of not making contact with the armature . Once I get the proper tools together , I can remove it in less than 15 min. but you need to be almost upside down when you remove the three bolts and disconnect the two or three plugs and the 4 inch long tubing.Simple and easy for me but I have been in construction for 40 years and this is similar. You can probably do it or supervise some else who is ok working from that position. I have not found anyone selling just the motor so you will probably replace the motor and fan blade attached to it. Cost about 50-100 dollars. I believe these companies intentionally use crappy material in their brushes so they will wear out, but how do you find out who uses good parts? good luck . hope I helped you in some way.

The blower motor is bad,I have the same problem and I also have been tapping it for 2 yrs.The only fix to this problem is to replace the blower it isn't cheap but it is the only solution

If I hit a bump in the road, the blower will start sometimes. If I it is working and I turn it off then back on it more than likely won't work.
Pardon my ignorance, but where would the switch be located?
It seems the problem would be closer to the blower itself.
