Your controls for where your blower blows is usually vacuum driven, not electrical. I'm almost willing to bet you have some burnt wires under the dash, and they have melted a vacuum hose.

Have a look for that. Sounds like you have some serious gremlins. THe only way to tackle these is to take your time, and go through things circuit by circuit. Patience is the key, and I doubt you will get a quick fix for this.

Hate it when stuff like that happens. Hopefully you will have it up and going in no time. Hope you are right and it fixes all your problems.

well i got the doors are fixed i wen tto the dealer and they wouldent chec it out or fixed it. i fixed it myself all it is was the spark plug wires one on #2 COIL it was hangin on the mainfold and it burnt it kinda causing high voltage for some odd reason i just bought autolite ones at autozone and i hook all of them up and kept the 5 old ones. its running fine also got the fuses all fixed, stereo, courtsey lights, doors, pcm, but havent figure out the a/c yet. anyways its fixed but i ahve a slight problem at take off and jumpes in rpms real high then shifts just in first gear on a automatic, might be slippin or something. but thats it thanx

Good to see that you got it (mostly) sorted out! I take it your check engine light is gone now. :9sign2:

I dunno why the dealership wouldn't take a look at it though....sounds really iffy to me. I also can't remember if you replaced your PCV yet, or you just took it out to look at it. If not, I would replace that to see if the rpm thing gets fixed.
