It was the sound coming from the heater for the first time I don’t think it was the blower motor sounded like a door was open and close and I was leaning over this seat to turn on the ignition It sounded like a door was open and closing
Ford Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 8 months ago

by jumping that relay you were putting 12 volts directly to the blower motor. nothing else.. check slot 30 for 12 volts

if you have the red lead in slot 30 and the black lead to a good ground, and thats what you are reading, then the fuse is bad or not pushed in all the way or the wire between the fuse and the relay slot 30 is open
