Hey how are you,I will try to help you with this issue

usually for this issue you will need a blow motor or blower motor resistor ,but we need to test

take glove box to get to blower motor and blower motor resistor ,click on link to view pdf file for procedure

inspect the connector on both for any evidence of burned pins, wire, backed out pins, wiggle the wires at motor and resistor with switch on and heater fan on, does it come , take blower out ,inspect the blower motor blades for dust causing to get stuck , if all looks good and have power to blower motor then replace it ,in some cases the connector needs changed if bad

You are very welcome :)
