Unplug the switch, does it turn off? Also check the blower motor resistor it may be shorted to power.

The two most common problems for this is the switch, wiring or the resistor block.

Doesn't really help me as problem has not happened again and hot starting issue has not reoccurred.
AU Auto Mechanic: Dan, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok I will opt out and see if another expert has any ideas. No need to reply to this as it will lock it back to me and others will not be able to view it.
