Hello I will help you with your question,

If you follow the wiring from the blower motor it runs to the "resistor" module. That is really a power transistor that is shorted keeping the blower running all the time

You will have to remove the evaporator cover to get to the resistor.

Let me know if you can get to the motor.

Thank you
