My blower motor is not working

There is a relay located near the blower motor itself, under the dash on the same side, as for back probing the connector, leave the blower plugged in and stick a pin into the back of the connector where the red/white wire goes in so you are feeding power to that wire instead of it coming from the relay. This way the control unit can still do its job but the blower motor is just getting power from a different source. Then you will know it is just a power issue and there is nothing wrong with the ground circuits. I only say to do this since you already have a power wire running to it from the battery.

Oh! So you are saying to keep it plugged in but also attach the wire I ran? I never checked a relay near the blower. I will do that tomorrow and update. Thanks again.

Check the relay near the blower motor first, that is most likely the problem.

I just took a flashlight out. I cannot see anything that looks like a relay. It is possible I am looking at it but do not recognize it. Any idea what it might look like?

If you can find one that has the same part number on it and its not a super important relay, you can swap it out temporarily and with the key in the on/run position try the blower.

I went into the back of the connection like you suggested and now I have my controls again! I ordered the relay as well. Thank you very much for helping me out!

No problem, hopefully the relay is the only issue, sounds like it is.
