What would cause. The rear passanger heater blower to stop working?
Switch? Fuse?
It was working , then stopped, then was working for a while. Now has stopped

Blower Motor bad, is my most common, can be worn out switch too.
A bad motor or wiring issue may cause a blown fuse or breaker to trip. If it's a thermally protected motor they will sometimes stop working and start working again after they cool off...
I would bet you have a blower motor issue myself...but would ck to make sure you have voltage coming to the heater motor from the switch, and ck for voltage at fuse/breaker when it isn't working.

your not running it on high speed are you? That will toast a motor, or at least cause it to overheat and cause the breaker to trip. Running the heaters on low are easier on the motors and also, in my opinion, help keep the bus warmer.

Thanks for all the input. I checked the filters under the seat over the blower and , well there was no filter and the coil was plugged just about completely. Even after cleaning and vacuuming it still would not run. The coil is warm from the water but the blower won't run. Fun in the winter that's for sure.
Thanks...

remove the motor and see if it will turn by hand. If it has a white triangle connector inside, pull it apart and check to see if it is burnt up creating a poor connection.
