where is outside fuse box located for blower motor?
I had a similar problem. I ordered a fan blower assembly from the wreckers. When I installed the fan blower assembly,I noticed my old original blower motor was ceasing up. There is not fuse to this blower inside the blower compartment except in the fuse panel in front of the fire wall.I also think that your heat sink could be faulty. Adisable to change both the heat sink and blower motor assembly and change your cabin filters while your at this stage...Good luck!
Take off the box on top of dashboard. There you can see the blower engine and main el-connection (white plug). Take the plug off and use straight 12V to test the engine. Be careful.... if engine moves, problem is elsewhere.
