Can you unplug the blower and hot wire it to the battery power and ground, we first need to make sure the blower does work?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If you look at the diagram it shows the blower has 12v all the time and has solid state electronics to turn it on and vary the speed. My Autel Maxisys can turn the blower on through the climatronic module so I know the blower motor works. the A/C/defrost/recir/mode buttons and blower knob are inop. but the dual auto temp knobs let you set the temperature you want and it shows on the display. nothing else on the climate head (which is the module also) works or lights up. All fuses are good, i swapped relay I have seen people talk about it fixing... I'm a technician and next im checking power and grounds to the climate module... I assume its bad but its very expensive. it did set 2 codes 00532 00457 in the climate module.

Thanks for checking that. You are on the right track of checking the power and ground to the climate control. I assume you being a tech you do not need the wire colors or diagrams to do this but if you do can I get the engine and trim level so I can look over the correct diagrams.
