Check the blower fuse first, if thats good then Check your blower motor and the blower motor resistor.

I checked blower fuse 50amp, looked good. Took out blower motor out, checked it out, works. Where is resistor located if it's the next?

The resistor is usually right next to the blower motor. Look for a wire harness that plugs into a plastic base. It should have 2 screws diagonally on either side of the harness. Look for melting or black marks on the circuit board

Where can I buy resistor if I need too thats inexpensive? You Recommend?

705

Most part stores carry them, but for a Lexus you're better off going to a Toyota dealer. They will give you OEM parts based off your VIN so it will be the right one.

Another Question would a blower motor relay be another problem before going to to last process?

705

You can check that. Find a relay in the relay box with the same part number, for example the A/C compressor relay and swap places. If the blower works then the relay is the problem.

705

P.S. for curiosity sake, how did you test blower motor to determine that it works? Because if the motor works, the relay is still good

50

Took it out of car, then used car battery with wires connect which turned fan blades on

50

which relay would i check? I see Fan1, abs sol, abs motor, fan 3, and fan 2?

705

The fan relays are for the fans on the radiator. 1 relay for each cooling fan(there should be 2) & 1 that runs both. The blower motor relay is different. Its more than likely the resistor since it worked when u hooked up a battery to it.

where would I find the blower motor relay?
