Power Windows

I have a 1999 Eclipse RS. The power windows stopped working. Also the blower motor for the air conditioner heater stopped. Is there a fuse that controls both? I cannot find a blown fuse inside the car or under the hood. Are these problems related and if so can you provide me with some options to fix them?
Do you
have the same problem?

The window could be one or two problems, one would be the window motor itself, or the window switch, you can check for power in and out of the switch if your handy with a test light or volt meter, the same goes for the blower motor, check for power, usually the motor goes bad, if you need more help trying to diagnose it let us know this info is prelim to get you started, oh and they are not related always check the fuse first

Niether window works. I would not think both motors would go at once. Are the fuses for both inside the car or one of the large ones under the hood?

There is a relay on the relay block behind the left side of the dash, you should beable to find another relay under there to swap out with the window relay just look at the part numbers,

are both window switches inop, right and left, you cant close or open the windows from either side

I looked at the fuse box and it looks like it has 2 relays in it. I do not see a 4"x4" box.
