Blower not working

I've got a 2002 X5 and the blower isn't working. I did some reading on other threads and found that it was probably the final stage resistor - I replaced the resistor but the problem was not solved. Any other suggestions?

Did you check all breakers?
Hope you blower motor isn't burned, changing the motor is very complicated procedure.

Yes, I've checked all the breakers/fuses and they seem fine. Is there anything else it could be or does this mean the motor is probably burned?

As I remember a huge 50A breaker in a glovebox is protecting a blower circuit
Some possible problems: a bad contact is somethere, AC control is broken.
I would recommend to ask a dealership or indy to make a diagnostic and check the circuit, you may save some money later and replace a broken part himself.
The problem is that in order to get access to blower motor you will need remove central concole (a lot of work!)

Alright, I think I'll take it in and have them diagnose the problem for me. Thanks for your help.
