Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome I'm Chris aka Moose
You can check the blower motor by hooking it directly to the battery.
At the blower resistor there should b a tab you press on the connector to unlock it so you can pull it free. An OHM meter is needed to check the resistor, do you own one?

Have meter. What are the readings of the resistor pack? -------The resistance numbers are going to change based on the resistor temp and age. Test the purple wire to the light blue, then tan, then yellow, the resistance should get higher for each tested in that order.
What does the burnt wire tell me about the motor or pack? ------------The purple wire is the ground for the blower when set on high. This wire burnt means the blower is bad, drawing to many amps or brown wire, the ground for the blower switch is not a good enough ground and has resistance.
How do I connect my motor directly to the battery? -----------Unplug the blower and run wires from its connector to the battery or to jumper cables connected to the battery.
Is there a place underneath the dash to make this connection? --------------Yes, at the blower motor.
