    My fan motor went out the other day, help me out, because I'm a complete moron when it comes to electricity.

    What could it be, and how do I test/fix it?

    I checked the fuses, there all good.

    my guesses are

    1. Switch is bad
    2. wiring to motor went bad
    3. motor itself

    how do I test all this?

    remove the wire from the heater fan motor, use a piece of wire from the pos. battery post to the motor connector, if the motor runs the problem is in the switch or wiring, if it doesn't run the motor is bad or it's not getting a good ground, some have a separate ground wire that is attached to one of the motor screws, if the ground is good, it must be the motor. remove the motor and make sure something didn't get inside the heater housing and lock-up the blower wheel to prevent it from turning.
