Well, let me rephrase that, the AC works but blower motor doesn’t. When you put your hand up to the vents, they’re cold.
Long story short, I ran my AC on MAX on way home from work, driving time of approx. 35 minutes. I got home, showered, and got back into car to go downtown to store. It was then I discovered that the AC wasn’t coming on, and it was still on max. I shut it off and turned it back on, but to no avail. I checked all related fuses, or at least what I think is related and checked my “Taurus Bible” the chilton manual. I swapped out a blower motor relay and it didn’t work, but i’m not sure that relay was or was not good, it was out of a '96 E-250 at work.
So now I get out my test light. I pulled the connection from blower motor, connect it and turn on AC and light comes on. Vents are getting cooler. So I get my tool and pull the radio and climate control assembly. I pull the plug to the actual fan connection, the part that connects to the fan switch that controld fan speed. I’m getting nothing there.
Is there a relay I don’t know of? I know the AC still works because vents are still getting cold, but I can’t get air to move. A LONG time ago it did this but “corrected” itself. What is my next step? I’m not sure what to check next and my repair manual is leaving me in a boat with no oars.

Just kidding about the rest of the useless info. It was worth it if it got a chuckle out of you. Thanks again for your time and expertise!
