Blower motor for heat.

My blower motor comes on 10 to 15 minuets after I start my car only runs on high. Then I turn it off key out of the ignition and blower motor is still running. It shut off 10 minuets later.... HELP

Sounds like a failing blower resistor.This is buried well within the dash-big job I'm afraid
