Internal fan no longer works

    My internal circulating fan stopped working last week. During one drive in rainy conditions prior to it completely stopping, I had turned on the AC to clear the windows. I noticed hearing the fan motor vary in speed, slowing down than speeding back up to the setting I had, and then it just stopped while on the highest setting. I could not get the fan to turn back on during that trip.

    The next day, it started to work right away on turning on the car, but stopped working before I got to work that day. By the third day it would no longer run and has not run ever since.

    I checked the fan fuse as well as every fuse that seemed to have any chance of being connected to the fan.

    I have not tried to locate the fan motor and do anything with it.

    I am curious if anyone has had something similar happen and what was the solution. In the meantime, I am booked with the service center for next week. As a side note, they are 30 or more days backlogged to putting people in a loaner so they are using rental rags as alternatives to get folks serviced.
