Blower Motor

First, I want to say thanks to everyone who posts here, I have been able to find the answers to all of my questions the past 5 years without having to register or post - so thank you

The car, 2000 P-38 4.0

Now, for the problem: The air conditioning system is not working anywhere near as good as it should! I have a left hand blower motor that is not running and my wife is complaining as we live in the Mojave desert
- Pollen filters are on order - I cleaned the ones in there until they arrive - they were filthy
-Relay 7 has been replaced after looking through the relay bin at Autozone (duralast 19899 fit perfectly)
--There appears to be only minor damage to the fuse box even though the relay was burned out.
-I checked with a test light, and there is voltage to the red wire that goes into the blower motor

Is it possible that I am not getting enough amps to run the blower through the line even though the test light goes on? it was an LED test light
Is there a way to tell if the blower motor is burnt out or if it is just a bad fuse box?

Any help on narrowing down the problem and fixing this would be appreciated. My wife loves the car and I just installed headrest monitors for the kids, so I would really like to get this fixed ASAP

I just replaced the LH blower motor in mine about 3 months ago. It started working intermittently, and making a growling like sound. I guessed the bearings were starting to go. The replacement motors are kinda pricey too. I lucked up and passed a scrap yard, when they were unloading a P38 with a wrecked front end, and you know I jumped on it. After handing over $75 the motor was mine. I will go ahead and warn you,...IT IS A PAIN IN THE @SS to replace it. You might be able to trouble shoot the wiring from under the dash at the motor, but if you're that far into it, just go a lil further and replace the blower.

I can give ya tips on how to do it if need be.
Better grab it. I was lucky, and Scotty pretty cool. I still haven't put those trim panels in yet.

Your best bet for clarity will be to hit up Google and download RAVE. The electrical manual section has full schematics and full pin outs for each connector. It will make working on your own rig much easier.
I fully agree. I've discovered that to own a Rangie you need to have tools, patience, access to this forum, band-aids,...and most importantly a RAVE cd. Am I forgetting anything?

Bean Bean,

I have Rave, and have used it ALOT! This one is just killing me! I am pretty sure the motor is dead, so I left Scotty a message about seeing what he has.... I can use some help in pulling the darn thing out though! I can not figure out how to get the left hand blower out through the harness that is running in front of it! Any advice? I can not seem to make sense of Rave for the left hand side...

Check your PM's Jeff.
