Problem with heater blower.

It doesnt work.

That being said, its a new motor (even if it was old there is no power going to it anyway), new resistor, tested the two relays and they both work. Tested the switch for the fan speed, and there was continuity where it should have been i think (different pins at different speeds). I dont know what else to test now.

The fuse for the motor is good too. Also no connectors are melted or anything.

I dont know what else there could be that can go wrong here. Please help me.

Measure the resistance between heater blower motor, connector C789, pin 2, circuit 31S-FA18 (BK/RD), wiring harness side and ground.

Is the resistance less than 2 ohms?
Yes
INSTALL a new heater blower motor. TEST the system for normal operation.

No
GO to A6.
A6 CHECK THE CIRCUIT BETWEEN THE HEATER BLOWER MOTOR AND THE HEATER BLOWER SWITCH FOR OPEN
Disconnect: Connector C469 of Heater Blower Switch.
Measure the resistance between heater blower motor, connector C789, pin 2, circuit 31S-FA18 (BK/RD), harness side and heater blower switch, connector C469, pin 6, circuit 31S-FA33 (BK/OG), harness side.

Is the resistance less than 2 ohms?
Yes
GO to A7.

No
REPAIR circuit 31S-FA18 (BK/RD) between heater blower motor and splice S24 using the wiring diagrams. TEST the system for normal operation.
A7 CHECK THE HEATER BLOWER SWITCH GROUND CIRCUIT
Measure the resistance between heater blower switch, connector C469, pin 2, circuit 31-FA25 (BK), harness side and ground.

Is the resistance less than 2 ohms?
Yes
INSTALL a new heater blower switch. TEST the system for normal operation.

No
REPAIR circuit between heater blower switch and ground connection G14 using the wiring diagrams. TEST the system for normal operation.
A8 CHECK THE HEATER BLOWER MOTOR AT MAXIMUM SPEED
Turn the heater blower switch to maximum speed.
Does the heater blower motor operate correctly?
Yes
GO to A10.

No
GO to A9.
A9 CHECK THE CIRCUIT BETWEEN THE HEATER BLOWER MOTOR AND THE HEATER BLOWER SWITCH FOR OPEN
Ignition OFF.
Disconnect: Connector C469 of Heater Blower Switch.
Disconnect: Connector C789 of Heater Blower Motor.
Measure the resistance between heater blower motor, connector C789, pin 2, circuit 31S-FA18 (BK/RD), harness side and heater blower switch, connector C469, pin 6, circuit 31S-FA33 (BK/OG), harness side.

Is the resistance less than 2 ohms?
Yes
INSTALL a new heater blower switch. TEST the system for normal operation.

No
REPAIR circuit 31S-FA33 (BK/OG) between splice S24 and heater blower switch using the wiring diagrams. TEST the system for normal operation.
A10 CHECK THE HEATER BLOWER SWITCH
Ignition OFF.
Disconnect: Connector C469 of Heater Blower Switch.
Ignition ON.
Measure the voltage between heater blower switch, connector C469, pin 5, circuit 31S-FA32 (BK/BU), harness side and ground.

Measure the voltage between heater blower switch, connector C469, pin 3, circuit 31S-FA31 (BK/YE), harness side and ground.
Measure the voltage between heater blower switch, connector C469, pin 1, circuit 31S-FA30 (BK/WH), harness side and ground.
