Does the blower motor currently not work?

HAve you checked power and ground to it?

No I have not checked blower motor.

Well, you could have a bad connection or even just a bad blower motor. I would start by checking power and ground at the blower motor when it is not working with the key on and switch on high. If both are present and the blower motor is not working, the blower motor is bad and will need to be replaced.

Just a side note... you could have a bad ignition switch. THis is very common! THe contacts inside cause a massive voltage drop which cause low voltage to the HVAC heat unit which will in turn cause low/no voltage to the blower motor.
