Just had the same problem. First my blower motor would onlywork on "high", and then it started to change speeds and shut off by itself. Replace the resistor mounted in front of the blower motor.It costs about 40.00 at a dealer.

Heater Blower Fan, Cooling Fan, Or A/C Condenser fan? There is a fuse box in the front passenger door jamb. This is where you will find the blower fan fuse. You should find the Cooling and A/C fan fuses in the underhood fuse box. When I see problems with any of these fans it is not usually a fuse that is causing the problem. If a fuse is blown then there is another problem causing it to blow.
