Were able to find the fuse for it typically in the TIPM power distribution system. Meter both legs on side should have power even if the fuse is blown.

I presume it does not work at any speed setting.

Edit

Have you checked the blower itself. If its faulty - stalled, seized or shorted the TIPM (smart module) will shut down the power output to it.

Possible causes of an inoperative blower motor include:

Open fuse
Inoperative blower motor resistor or power module (depending on application)
Inoperative A/C-heater control
Inoperative blower motor
Inoperative blower motor circuit wiring or wire harness connectors

Here's some info on the fuses:


FUSES

Integrated Power Module
The Integrated Power Module is located in the engine compartment near the air cleaner assembly. This center contains cartridge fuses and mini-fuses. A label that identifies each component may be printed on the inside of the cover. Refer to “Engine Compartment” in “Maintaining Your Vehicle” for further information.

Caution!
When installing the IPM cover, it is important to ensure the cover is properly positioned and fully latched. Failure to do so may allow water to get into the IPM, and possibly result in an electrical system failure.
When replacing a blown fuse, it is important to use only a fuse having the correct amperage rating. The use of a fuse with a rating other than indicated may result in a dangerous electrical system overload. If a properly rated fuse continues to blow, it indicates a problem in the circuit that must be corrected.
