2003 Dodge Dakota blower motor not working.

I got into my truck this morning and tried to turn my blower on for some ventilation and it did not come on. It worked just fine the previous day. I went under my dash to confirm that the blower was getting voltage when the switch was on and it was. I checked the motor for continuity and it was fine. Not sure if that means anything.

I went online to check out prices for a new motor and I saw that there is also a fan blower resistor. Could that be the problem? Where do I find this resistor so I can check/replace it?

I don't have much experience in fixing vehicles, but I am handy. The blower motor looks really easy to take out so I think I can handle this task just fine.

Could be resistor. Resistor is held in place at bottom of the heater box under glove box. Lower access panel under on passenger side. Move air duct out of way to get to screws holding resistor.

It was the resistor. I replaced it tonight and all is working. No need to move anything out of the way.
