Does the blower motor come on at all?
No, not at all. The light on the right comes on leading me to believe the fuse is still good. When it went out, the heater made a clicking sound followed by a fading hiss and that was all she wrote.
Ok... well just to be sure... lets check the fuse.
The best way to diagnose this, is to go to the blower motor connector and see if there is power and ground at the connector with the key and blower motor on the "hi" setting.
If there is power and ground and the blower motor is not coming on, the blower motor is bad and will need to be replaced.
The blower motor and blower wheel are located in the passenger side end of the heater-A/C housing, below the glove box

The blower motor resistor is mounted to the HVAC unit inside the passenger compartment... just in case you need to know where it is located. :)
