Hi,
My fan motor was acting up before it up and quit. As I would turn up the fan the car seemed to need to draw more power until turning the fan in any setting yielded no results. Not sure if I need to replace blower motor but want to see if it can be anything else. If so can someone provide details on how to change it or run a few simple tests beforehand to ensure that it is not something else.
Thank you!

You'll want to start your test with a test light or volt meter at the blower motor connection. With key "on", fan switch on high. If voltage present, change the fan motor. If no voltage, check blower relay to see it it's closing. if not, check for relay coil voltage. If none, change the fan switch. If coil voltage is present, check the coil on the relay. If coil is good, check relay output to blower motor. If no output, change the relay. If you have output to blower motor, get back to me.
