Will I need a blower motor or resistor?

(2001 Pontiac Grand Prix)
in Naples, FL on November 03, 2011
After the car sits for a few hours, the blower doesnt work sometimes when I start it. It usually kicks on after a short time, however, today it wouldn't come on at all.
Any suggestions?
Thanks

If it is the motor, maybe the brushes are worn or sticking or there is a bad spot on the armature, when it fails, hit the area near the motor with you hand and see if it then works, if it does replace the motor. Best to do proper tests. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online

you need to test it with a test light to see if it has power. it may be just the motor.
