blower motor doesnt work, I can wiggle wires over the fuse box in the passenger floor board and sometimes it will come on, it may work for days or sometimes just seconds

Have you checked power and ground to the blower motor?

Can I start by getting your VIN?

Thank you.

Is this auto or manual air?

manual , dual climate control, actuator is bad , air works on passenger side, only heat on drivers side but blower fan only comes on when i wiggle the wires, then it works on all speeds

Thank you for that information. I suspect the blower motor is missing a power and or a ground preventing it from working.. possibly a bad contact or connection. When you wiggle the wires, it may start working again because the wires are now making contact. However, you will need to confirm this by checking for power and ground to the blower motor and doing a good visual inspection of the wires leading up to the blower motor/connector to ensure good contact.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
