No power below radio

I was trying to fix my 6 cd changer. When I did what I wanted to with it I tried to plug it back in to see if I was successful. I notice a slight odor of electric burn but didnít notice anything at that time. When I put everything back into the center stack I had difficulty with the wires behind the fan plug. It seems they had come free from the plug. I put them were I thought they belonged but after I finished putting everything into place I had no fans, no defroster, or indication of power at all below the radio. I found an image which should be proper wiring for the fan plug. I had to super glue them in place. It seems the tabs broke off in the plug. Other than that. Is there a relay, fuse, or anything else I can check?

Putting the front panel back on after pulling it for stereo repair can be a pain. I had a similar problem years ago with my 2007. Discovered that one of the wiring plugs for the defroster/heat/air had a broken tab and came apart when I reassembled it. You may want to use a small mirror to look behind the panel to make sure the both plugs are seated properly; and your wiring is okay.

If that doesn't solve your problem, search the internet for fuse box diagram for your year and model. Determine if there are fuses/and or relays that control your blower motor. Check them to see if they are okay.

drivers side is the heavy plastic tabs that hold the connector in. passenger side is a cam lock (grey), if that one isn't seated properly then you will have the issue you are describing. unfortunately, youll have to pull the console then the side trims back off to check each plug, good luck

Lots of bolt on goodies...

I pulled every relay and they all tested good. I have tested all fuses for continuity and they checked good. The plugs behind the climate control panel (2 plugs) seemed to be seated correctly. That being said the wires on the fan had broke away from the plug. I looked up online for wire placement of the wires. I had to use superglue to hold them. I attached a picture of the plug. Is there a place on either plug I can check for power. If that panel is bad would power not come to anything? If the fan resistor is bad would this stop power?
