Blower motor relay

(1999 Ford Escort)
Where would blower motor relay be located?Ford shop manual I have says 30amp fuse is located driveside next to fusebox which I found,however,it does not give location of relay.I get no voltage at motor.Thanks,Chas1376

I think you should focus on the blower motor resistor, which is in line to the blower motor under the passenger side dash.

A schematic of circuit shows wiper fuse(checks good) picks up relay coil,so blower motor circuit starts at 30 amp fuse(checks good),through contacts on relay to motor before resistors or control switch then to ground,I am not getting any voltage to motor which makes me believe motor relay is defective.My manual says relay is locate under driver's side,but I do not see it.Thanks,Chas

Chas,
Begging your pardon -- just that I've seen many Escort/Tracer blower motor resistors fail and melt.

To answer your question - there is a relay box up underneath the drivers side dash near the cowl. It houses 6-7 relays. Looks like it's buried up there pretty far. Good luck.
I found it, you are right.It is housed under driver side inside with other relays upside down in white plastic box.Removedtop nut with#10 socket,also attacked with straight screwdriver on inside firewall replaced relay no joy.Going to blower motor right side passenger side and jump out motor.The circuit is 30 amp fuse,relay,motor to control panel including resistor bank.Motor wire blue/black wired to ground should operate motor with ignition switch on.that is my next step.Thanks for the reply,Chas

Just quickly, have you looked at the resistor and wiring? Your theory of attack all sounds great, but cutting to the chase...if I had to put money on it...
