As to the question, it sounds like your blower motor is dying. Not a bad or overly expensive fix (I just did mine). The easiest way to test the motor is to turn the fan on (AC or just vent) and if it'* not blowing, go under the hood and whack it with a srewdiver handle or something similar. If that turns it on, then you probably just need a new motor. They usually stock them at the local parts stores, I think I paid $35 for mine, and it comes with the fan attached.

First, typing in caps is the same a yelling...

Next, does this car have the Electronic Climate Control?

There is a Blower Control Module under the Maxifuse Relay Center, the connector for the blower should lead you right to it... There is a possibility that it may be bad...

The Maxifuse Relay Center has a couple of bolts holding it and it can be lifted up. The blower control module has most of its circuit board down in the air stream like the resistors used to. It is available from Advance and from dealers.
