The blower stopped blowing air. For a short while it would come on, rare occasions and eventually stopped working. Changed the blower motor and resistor, still didn't work. Pulled the dash apart to change the blower switch and found that it had melted the plastic connector. Not sure what caused the malfunction, however once the new switch was put it the blower worked.
