Man it could be anything,a broken wire,blown fuse,bad motor,bad fan control,could be all most anything,pull it out run 12vDC to it,see if it turns on; if it does then i would check into your cntrol switch hope this helps

I don't belive there is a relay,no need for one.I'm sure a resistor is fairly cheap so why not try and put in a new one,i would look for a broken wire some where along the line from the switch to the blower could be any where.. As for the complete cold air intake im not sure if there is one on the market,maybe one of the others knows right now im using the Goat Air Ram from the do it yourself section. http://www.performanceprobe.com/doit...s/airram22.htm ,with a K&N drop in filter right now when I get to it im just going to make my own..As for the gov there should be away around that but agian i'm not sure someone else should know,sorry im not much help to you good luck....

motor probably just has a dead spot... while the switch is turned on, wack the shit outta it with a hammer or similar blunt object... should spin right up.

Default 1990 Ford Probe GL

Same problem with me, so i check the wire out and any fuse for the blower, what I found out was notting, BUT i did get it to work, i just figured this out 10/7/03 - there is two wires of which one goes in to the box with the resistor, and the other connects to another wire (Behind the glove box). I disconnected the plug/wire behind the glove box and connected it to a Positive wire and the Fan started to run. So what i am gonna do is get red wire and connect to the battery or switch.

Please note that the fan can still be controlled by the knob, in the case that it works..
