Default Blower Motor not working

1999 6 spd with manual air - Had water back up in blower motor area. Motor stopped working, checked fuse ok replaced BM resistor still no blower motor. Hooked motor up directly to battery no spin. Took motor apart and cleaned brushes then tested directly to battery with jumpers motors spins. Connected to resistor lead still no blower. Is there a relay I am failing to find or control module ????Not sure what to do next.
Have power going into resistor but nothing coming out.

also cleaned out ac drain and all kinds of debris came out. sucked it out with a shop vac.


Please help....

Thanks

bub

What year car do you have and do you have manual or automatic air? There are some differences.

7/32" socket; pull the motor 3 screws, work it free by hand, spray wd-40; or new one for $80; i spent $2 on wd-40

Motor spins I can't get it to come on. Tested it directly to battery. Replace resistor and checked fuses. Is there a relay I need to check or ???

Default Blower motor working again

Thanks to Bill and the schematic he sent me I was able to trace my fan motor not working. Turned out to be the relay. But without the schematic I wouldn't have found which one it was. So thanks to you Bill for your responses.
