My car's air never turns on unless I hit my dash board or a hard bump. When it does turn on it immediately turns off and then I have to hit the dash again. Also, when apply the break it will turn off too. I recently had to have a seal put back on and sealed by the fan that I think produces the air to come through the cabin. I didn't know the seal was bad until I had over 6 inches of water in the passenger side of the car. Is that fan going out? And what is it called?

It's called a blower motor. And it could have gotten water damaged, and/or the circuits could've gotten corroded.

Your only remedy is to have it looked at. Since you've had water damage previously, don't just have the motor replaced without having the circuit and contacts within the circuit checked out. Because you can experience the same problem all over again.
