    Where exactly is the blower relay?

    Hi all --

    I'm a long-time forum lurker... very grateful to everyone in the forum. Your contributions have been super-helpful to me over the years!

    I am finally making a first post with what I am sure is a "doh" type of question.... wondering if anyone might be willing to offer some additional guidance about exactly where the blower relay is and/or whether, beyond removing the glove box, I need to disassemble part of the dash to get to it?

    I have tried referring to the diagram on page 07-40-02 of the service manual but don't find it to be much help beyond getting me to the right general area! I've also tried to attach a couple of images with this post, showing the area where I am searching and something that seems like it *might* or might not be the relay.

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    When I had issues with my sedan blower not working it was a relay in the fuse block under the hood of the car. I believe it was the one marked for the a/c. It liked to stop working on really hot Arizona summer days.

    Not under the hood. There is one under the dash behind the squirrel cage itself, that one is specifically for the blower. My bad.

    It looks like you found the right relay.

    The other connector plugs into the blower motor and the other connector is for the resistor pack.

    The relay connector should have 4 wires going to it.

    Pink, Black, Blue with a white stripe and Blue with a Black stripe.

    If you've got no blower, you may have a burned out fan switch.
