2002 Honda Civic sedan. Went to use the window defrost yesterday and found out the interior fan was not working. Took it to local garage where two fuses were replaced. Did not fix problem. Mechanic recommended taking to to Honda. Good idea?

Any competent mechanic should be able to troubleshoot and repair blower.

Verify the motor works by supplying 12V directly to its plug. If motor works, troubleshoot control.

That's all there is to it...

I appreciate your advice, Jason, but I am not mechanically savvy being an old lady. That why I am at the mercy of garage mechanics.

Took it to Honda this morning. They said I need a new blower motor and transistor.

Sounds about right. Its safe to replace both items. Maybe the mechanic blew the fuses trying to get it to work but didn't know how to trouble shoot further. Just did my van back in the summer.
