Angry 02 Focus, heater does not work at all

Hi all,

I came across this site a few days ago when I decided to tackle the task of getting my wife's heater to work again. I followed the steps to replace the blower motor resistor, thinking that would likely be the cause...but alas, I was wrong!

In the beginning the fan/heat would only work on the number 4 setting but over time it has stopped working completely. I replaced the resistor this morning with no luck of getting it back on. I then took out the radio unit and unplugged the harness from the back of the dial switch to test if it was getting power. No power at all. Everything else in the cluster seems to be getting power fine except the switch that actually turns the heat/fan on and off. From there I went under the hood to check the fuse which is fine, no signs of being blown or faulty.

So now I'm wondering what to do next. Could there be a short in the wires or might it be something else? I'm not much of a car guy and can only accomplish these fixes with nice detailed instructions as you have all provided in the past. Can someone try to take a stab at pointing me in the right direction? It's getting awfully cold to be driving in New England without any heat...the temp this morning was 20 degrees...much too cold to have our kids in the car and take them to/from school.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!!!
