so yesterday morning, im driving around, and the heater is working fine. park the car, come out, turn the car on, no heater.

 

i know the blower motor is under the radio, but where the hell is the fuse for the blower motor?

ok, so it's not the heater its the blower. shouldn't be too tough. like you noted, first check is the fuse, after that you are in deep doodoo cause blowers are an irritation to replace, but not expensive.

 

google fuse panel for your specific make and model and browse the images. should be able to find your diagram in a few minutes.

the resistor pack going bad normally causes the 1 and 2 not to work and the 3 and 4 still work... such as mine is doing

 

but yah there is a fuse.. and then a big fuse in the big panel under the hood

 

but if its working then cool! lol

Thats right. If it does not work on the lower settings but does on setting 4 then it is the resistor (or transducer - not sure which type on your car) but they both do the same thing. OR the blower motor is failing if it stops at all levels. The best way to test for that is when it stops again which it may, take your hand or your foot and give the blower motor a good wack. Do it a few times to see if it starts up again. If so there is a bad spot in the blower motor and it needs to be replaced. It is just like sometimes when a starter is going bad there is a bad spot where it wont turn but if you wack it with a block of wood and a hammer you can often times get it to turn.

 

If it is the motor it may have started working again because you hit a good bump or something which moved it from the bad spot, thus it runs again until it get stuck at the bad spot again...
