I myself do not. Likely under hood on firewall. Check with dealer parts or parts store and they should be able to tell you by looking at the book.

What is the actual problem? A failed blower resistor is more likely than a bad relay on this vehicle.

Since this is a Toyota Corolla in disguise, it should be behind the glovebox.

Thanks for the information. Behind the glovebox indeed. The problem is no A/C, no heat, no blower at all. I took the cover off of the relay and used a screwdriver (I know it's a bad idea) to complete the circuit and the blower kicked up with A/C and everything. With this running I try to adjust speeds and nothing happens - it just runs at one low speed (until I remove the screw driver). I have tested 3 other relays from the junk yard and same result. Does this sound like maybe the switch you use to turn on/adjust heat/AC has gone bad? Any ideas? I took the car to a garage for an estimate and they said it was the relay but it doesn't appear to be true.

Thanks for the help Larry and Joe. It was a melted switch. I got one from the junk yard and it works like a charm.
Thanks again,
Brad

Talking Thanks!!!

Once again, thanks to the folks on the DoItYourself.com forums. I have saved a small fortune being able to get by fixing heat, A/C, Refrigerators, and cars all with the help of these forums. More importantly I have learned a ton, and that is worth its weight in gold. Let's face it, there are plenty of people around that know what you guys know. The diamonds in the rough are the folks that are willing to help out like you do. Thanks to everyone that reads these post looking TO help instead of FOR help (especially the moderators). You guys rock!

If I counted money I saved in my 32 years on this earth doing it myself, finding it cheaper, salvaging it rather than pitching it, doing my homework, etc, I could buy a mansion .

The main thing is the satisfaction of knowing you did it yourself and did it right .

Good for you.
