Did you test the plug that goes to the motor for 12 volts? If no power going to the blower motor, check your fuses. If fuses are good, you either have a bad switch or a bad resistor.

Then you have a faulty switch. Try Ebay.....or your local salvage yard.

Turn your blower to the ON position. Now locate your blower motor. Usually it's located under the glove box on the passenger side. Once you find it, rap on the bottom of it with a heavy ratchet. If it suddenly comes to life, you will need a new motor. If you had problems with your blower speeds before it died, you have a bad blower motor resistor.

Fuses and relays are usually under the hood. According to the owners manual for the 2010 Journey, they are all located under the hood. I looked in the fuse diagram for the 2010 and cannot see a fuse for the front blower motor, only the rear. It's should be a 30 amp pink fuse. It says "if equipped" for the rear blower, so if you don't have a rear one, I would think the same fuse would run the front blower motor. Fuse locations are listed under Vehicle Maintenance in the owners manual. I love how they make everything so confusing. God forbid they list it under fuses or relays in the index. Too simple I guess. Since it only worked for 10 seconds, I would suspect that you have a couple of wires melted together some place. I would inspect the leads going to the resistor first. Seems like once that was replaced, the short occurred. The short would seem to be between the resistor and the blower motor.

I took fuses and relays and moved them in to different spots and it started working for a little bit then it stopped again , Going to try a new fuse box next .
