Hello, the blower operates on HIGh speed bypassing the resistor, 3 fuses are in the circuit but,, if say one blows, you would still have high speed, With this said? I lean to the blower motor, The switch? doubt it with NO speeds working, You changed resistor, looking at diagrams I go with bad blower motor. You can try? turning key on, selecting high speed and hitting on the blower rather hard in various spots, Sometimes this is will unstick the blower or you may see it try? to work confirming bad blower
