OK we either have a shorted blower relay which is located in the fuse box under the driver side dash or a faulty blower motor. The relay is R20 in that box. I have seen issues with the wire harness behind the dash shorting out intermittently causing this. If you could go under the driver side dash and look directly above the brake pedal. You will see a V shaped piece of metal sticking up and the dash harness running just in back of this bracket. SOmetimes the harness will chafe on this causing a short.
