Do you have automatic or manual climate controls? Thanks.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I think automatic. It displays temp and fan speed in digital
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

This most likely means the blower motor itself has failed. To test, at the blower motor 3 pin connector when the blower is not working, verify that the White wire has battery voltage from the 50 amp HTR Fuse in the Engine Room R/B assembly on the left side under the hood. The White/Black wire should have less than .1 volts when backprobed. This ground is located on the left hand Instrument Panel brace.. Red wire should have 5 volt square wave that changes with the blower motor speed control change coming from the A/C amplifier assembly connector D37 pin 23. If all are good then replace the blower motor. Here are replacement instructions, let me know if you have more questions. Thanks.

the blower motor is not behind glove box, I have to remove the control panel and radio?
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

That is correct. You may be able to access and remove from behind glovebox but I haven't tried it. Let me know how it goes or if you run into questions, thanks.
