01 Sable blower motor relay

My wife's 2001 Mercury Sable stopped working the other day. Normally, the fan speed on the climate control system has multiple settings. The fan doesn't actuate at all right now. The owner's manual says the blower motor relay is in the fuse box under the driver's side dash. However, when I pulled it, it looks more like a fuse or breaker. I went to Autozone and picked up a relay to see if it was the same, and it definitely looks different. There is a relay box under the hood near the radiator, but the owner's manual doesn't show any of these to control the blower motor. Just for kicks and giggles, I switched in the new relay (one at a time) with the three relays in box under the hood to see if it would fix the problem. No such luck.

Am I missing something? Is the relay somewhere else on the car? Should I be looking for something else?

I'm not very good at diagnosing car problems, but with a little guidance, I can usually get the relatively simple jobs done. Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like the blower motor resistor which is sometimes located on or hear the airbox on some cars. Best option is to call the dealer to see where it is on your car.
