    Turn the fan all the way up full, do you get any air then? Have you checked the fuse for the blower? – GdD Nov 13 '17 at 16:39
  • do you hear the fan? ie does it make a noise? if it does then if no air either the fan has become detached or the controlling flaps may have failed... – Solar Mike Nov 13 '17 at 16:58
  • no do not hear the fan even if I turn it all the way up – g.win Nov 13 '17 at 17:00
  • What have you done to troubleshoot? Checked fuses? Any details you can add will help. One line questions are hard to solve. – JPhi1618 Nov 13 '17 at 19:10

The basic parts of a blower system are the:

  • blower motor
  • blower motor resistor
  • fuse
  • wiring/connectors

Turning your fan switch all the way up should bypass the blower motor resistor, but as you have tried that and it still doesn't work it's unlikely to be the resistor, which leaves the other options. With the fuse, I'd replace it entirely and thoroughly clean the connectors in the fuse panel. Then I'd check the wiring going into the blower itself, disconnect the harness and check to make sure it's clean and reconnect it, seating it properly. Check that the blower is clear of debris and that it spins freely, if it doesn't spin it's seized or jammed. If it spins properly then you can test it by using jumper cables connected to the car battery on one side and probe wires on the other, touching them to the blower connections. If the blower spins then you have a wiring issue somewhere, if it doesn't then the blower itself has failed.
