    Make sure all the connections are plugged in. If they are not they wont work correctly. The connector on the bottom of the blower if it comes unconnected the blower motor will not work.

    There is a cluster of relays under the dash. I think this is the location of the blower relay. It has these wire colors going to it:
    Blue: Relay power supplied from the wiper (20A) fuse

    Blue/Orange: Power for the motor supplied from the blower (30A) fuse

    Black: Ground

    Blue/White: Output to the blower motor

    You should check that wiper fuse.

    If its not under there is very well could be in the engine bay relay box. I am guessing that the blower uses a bunch of power so its got have a decent sized relay.

    Mine had a bad resistor under the left side by the fuses. It was actually cracked inhibiting it's functionality.
