OK well that is a essential tool for doing what you want me to help you do,So lets try this, remove t-stat face plate to access the wires and bypass terminal R an G to see if furnace fan goes on

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i figured out how to access the wires but not sure how to bypass terminal r and g
Expert:  Gaztech replied 1 year ago.
Take a shot wire like a paper clip .. and join terminal R and G together , that is where all the t-stat wire hook in to your t-stat, leave it there and listen for blower fan going on
