Default AC blower fan intermittently working

So my 03 non turbo air conditioning blower fan has started working when it wants to. The ac compressor kicks on but no air blows at all. No matter what speed it's set to. If u put it to out side air and are cruising at a good speed u feel alittle air blowing through but the fan isn't blowing out air. Then randomly the blower fan will kick on and push out air and work normally. Is there a relay that is maybe not working or is the blower motor maybe going out. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help.

There's a blower motor resistor block that could be going bad but I don't know where it's located.

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

I appreciate it. Now I have to find where it is and how to check it.

Find the power plug on the motor and follow it back to the resistor. Can buy these for around $12 bucks on eBay.

Ok so replaced the resister and well not it... I spoke with a local mechanic and he said it's most likely the blower motor is going out. Does anyone know if a gen 1and a gen 2 blower motor are the same?

Not sure about that, but I have a brand new Gen 1 blower motor sitting in my attic given to me by my mechanic friend who gave me parts that were stored away from his daughters PT before she sold it.

Blower motor goes for just about $40. I'll sell it for $15 plus whatever shipping is to wherever you are.

I DON'T guarantee that this is your problem. I will guarantee that's it's a brand new part in the box it came in. You'll have to give me your zip code so I can find out tomorrow how much that would be.

Send me your zip in a PM and I'll check at the Post office tomorrow.
