PLYMOUTH BREEZE BLOWER MOTOR PROBLEM

1999 Plymouth Breeze • 130,000 miles

Hello, my girlfriend bought a 1998 plymouth breeze for $200. The car is a POS but runs. I've narrowed down a lot of its problems to bad car care and wiring (from the previous owner).
The issues I'm having trouble with are;
1. Blower is unresponsive (rear defrosters work and the AC button lights up when pushed). Fuses are good and relay shows no resistence when checked with a multi-meter.
2. Turn signals and emergency flashers work but only with the running/headlights off. Once the headlights are turned on only the right turn signal works (blinks). The left one is faintly lit on the dash and the amber signal light on the rear driver side stays lit.

I belive there may be a ground issue with the driver side singnal but I don't know where to start looking.
As for the blower problem, I'm stumped. I'm going to try and "hot wire" the blower to see if the motor itself is the issue. But if it works fine, where would you suggest to look next?

Also, I think the TCM relay may be bad. The car shifts rough between 1st and 2nd as well as 4th and 5th. I tried checking the relay with a multi meter and found resistence in it (granted I'm not too sure on how to check a relay switch with a multi meter).

There's. No metal shavings in the trans fluid when I check it and the fluid is full.

Thanks in advance. Any help is appreceated.

No tcm relay. You have a 5 speed automatic?

Check all your grounds for the lights.

Check the blower motor as well as the blower resistor

About the shifting, that's what she said (no pun intended) I told her it was only a 4 speed but she was insistent that its 5.
And yes automatic.

No such trans.

The harsh shift may be valve body but needs to be confirmed by a trans shop after pressure checks.

Ok I'll check that out.
What is the TCM fuse and TCM relay that are in this car?
I honestly have no clue.
Also, I "hot wired" the blower motor and it works. I've read that if the risistor is bad, the switch will only work on high. In my case the switch doesn't turn anything on. Only the ac and r. Defroster work. Is it possible the switch itself is bad?

Checked the problem light and sure enough, the previous owner had two wires flip flopped. I switched them back and it works fine now.
