hi i am currently replacing the blower motor in my car i have a 2002 cadillac deville dhs 4.6. I have removed the old motor and just picked up the brand new one today i plug it in and still no a/c the motor will not kick in i have checked all the fuses and they are all good. My question is what can be causing the blower motor not to turn on

There are 2nother components that play a part in that circuit. That is the Blower Motor control processor and the Instrument Panel Integration Module and either could be a problem but more likely the Blower module.

Make sure you have checked the 40amp fuse marked "HVAC BLO" in the rear fuse box

That pretty much means the fuse is good.

All you can check is that it is receiving power and ground. There is no way you can test the input signal without some expensive equipment so trying a new one is about the only way you can find out.

Were can i purchase one online. Also i tested the old blower motor with a dmm and as far as i can tell it was shorted the ohms would just jump up and down. on the new one it does not it stays at a number. could the motor possibly short out the blower module??

You can't test an electric motor with an ohmmeter. You need to just apply power and ground to it. As far as finding your parts, you can use Google just as easily as I can.
