blower motor not running

Hello and any help here would be appreciated. I have a 1995 325is. When I first got the car, the heater blower motor switch would only work in 2 positions, low and high, the variable speed never worked. Now I have no air blowing at all, and the heated seats are nice in the winter, but in Iowa, I will need more than that to get by without freezing. Can anyone offer a hand as to what steps I should take to resolve this problem? I am going to start by checking the fuses and relays, from there, seems as though many are having problems with the blower resistor. I have an analog system, and the sooner I can make repairs the better. Thank you very much in advance for any help!

Mark.

Hello, I have a '94 318i and the blower motor quick working. I started by checking that power was getting where is was suppose to. All seemed to checkout. I replaced the resistor which did not help. In the end the problem was the blower motor bearings were worn out and sticking. I tested this 1st by direct wiring the motor and giving it a nudge and it would work but only with help to start turning. Replaced blower motor (not an easy job) and all is well.

Appreciate the information and insight, seems all the parts are tough to get at. Will see how things come out in the end.
