So the other day i was driving around and I noticed that the fan blower wasn't working. The lights were lit up above the deal but no air was being blown out. I searched a bit for burnt out fuses thinking it was something simple. I found a burnt fuse and changed it and everything worked fine. I went in my car the next day and they weren't working again. Does anyone know which fuse controls the blower motor? I have the Bentley book but it's not exactly easy to navigate the fuse panel diagrams in there.

Can anyone offer me some help with this?

So, after looking again there is definitely a problem with the fuse getting overpowered. I was able to install a new fuse and went for a drive but then it blew out. While sitting in the garage i tried again twice by putting a new fuse in and as soon as i turn on the key the fuse would blow. Has anyone else ever experienced this? Whats going on?

probably a short in the blower resistor or somewhere in the wiring

I pulled the blower motor, removed the resistor and replaced the fuse. went for a drive with the resistor removed and the fuse still blew. does anyone know what else runs on that circuit that could be blowing this fuse?
