I have a 1998 jeep grand cherokee, my blower motor on my ac quit working and I believe it is not getting power. I used a volt meter thing on the main power connection to motor and it says no power, checked the engine compartment fuse box and the fuse is good- I jammed the pointers of the meter into the fuse connection box and it didnt do anything. Question: what can I do to get AC!

Checking in power distribution chenter? Using a meter? Do not check across fuse ground to body then test. Fues is direct feed from battery

Hey, sorry had a bad week. Got my finger caqught in my shop vac motor fan. Needless to say im stiched up. Lol
Okay, I checked those fuses, and they get power, I took my switches off my dash and messed up the "zone" switch so I ordered a new one which I got today. Once I figure out how to install new switch- what if blower motor still doesnt get power? You mentioned resistor. Where is that? My manual doesnt exactly give me a location.
Thnx 4 help!
