I want to access the fuse box to shut off the blower motor, It will not shut off and drains the battery. I have a 19991/2 ton express van. The manual states the box is at the rear of the engine compartment. How do I get to it

ok I can help you here. The problem with the blower motor is the resistor that control the blower motor speeds. you will find this under the hood on the right side/passenger. If you disconnect it the motor will stop.Here is a picture to help.
