1996 Buick Park Avenue 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 75000. Miles

when I returned home today my blower motor would not shut off. It is continuously running. Where do I locate the relay for the blower motor?

The red and purple wire are shorted together, where this 2 wires meet at is at the high speed blower relay socket-try clean out the relay socket could be corrosion that's causing it-

That red and purple wire are touching, you have remove the relays and it still come on, but when your remove the fuse it stops-The fuse is powered at all time thru the red wire if it touches the purple wire the blower motor will continuesly run-this is what's happening
