Question type: Maintenance & Repair

On the road today it was cold, but not as cold as we have seen this winter.  Also, little to no wind & no snow.  While driving (less than 30 minutes), the whole front-end ventilation system stopped blowing air.  The back-end is still working without issue.  We are getting no blowing air for any setting.  How do I fix this without having to pay for a repair shop?

Can you hear the blower working? If so possibly a damper/mode door issue in your dash.

No, its completely silent. There's no attempt to blow at all.
